the sweetness of summer....




Char, Cam, and Dani painted the vase for me.:)



Jonathan and Suzanne...shh, don't tell Jon, I am not sure he knows that Suze gave him a virtual floral headband.

Paul and I wandered out to the garden this morning, and picked some zucchini and a few summer squash. The rasberries are ripening (YUM!), and we will have peppers, tomatoes, and some corn soon.

He's at the dump, and I am here with just Charlotte Claire, Camille, and Evelyn. We had bacon and eggs, and texted someone regarding a lab puppy, and I half hope they don't reply. The kids are begging for a puppy, oh, they'll take care of it!
Duke here is a-hobbling along, but I'm thinking we won't subject him to another harsh New York winter, because if he slips on the steps like he does all the time, and it's icy, oh never mind. Duke is not at the top of his game anymore:( Anyway.


Today is rather a blank slate...warm and sunny-ish, and summertime...
