As I was contemplating a variety of subjects to blog about this morning I thought to myself.. I should be blogging about summer related things, such as surviving a heat wave, cooking in the summer, staying cool type posts.. and honestly I wish could. However we here in the Pacific Northwest are still waiting for summer to arrive. Oh we’ve had a day here and there that was nice and gave the hope that summer was on its way. But many days have been just like yesterday. Cloudy, cool, rainy at times, highs in the mid to upper 60’s. Yep.. kind of depressing for someone who loves everything about summer.. the hotter the better (except humidity.. which is something we don’t deal with here.. hot AND humid is not that great). Anywho.. imagine my surprise when I woke up to sunshine this morning! The weather man told me different and he was wrong.. at least this time and I am thrilled that he was wrong! :)
So this morning I had to go outside and sit for a bit to enjoy my cup of coffee and thank the Lord for this blessing. I took a few pictures from my deck of the beautiful sunshine .. just in case it doesn’t hang around today I wanted to remember what it looks like!
Pretty.. :) One thing my garden does not show from this view is all the weeds that have cropped up in the last few rainy days. So my plans today, if the weather stays nice, is to go down and soak up as much sun as I can while I weed and tend to my garden.
Before I do that I plan to get my house picked up a bit. I did a thorough upstairs to basement cleaning on Monday so today is just pick up the clutter, do a little sweeping, tend to the kitchen and swipe the bathroom clean. Plus dinner preps. I looked at menu and saw today was supposed to be beef stew, but I am feeling more like bbq chicken and potato salad.. something more summer like!
Hope you are having a great day on your homestead today!
