stripes + stars

events of July 2016 (so far)

Baby's teething - lots of drool
splashing in the lake
stars and stripes everywhere
sock yarn slipping off the knitting needles

crisscrossing the state in our car
trips to the farm to see grandma and grandpa - and the sheep!
a wild patch of raspberries
visits to the north woods to stay in a cabin
sitting around the campfire
looking at the stars

knitting before bed in the warm glow of a single lamp
making jar after jar of raspberry jam
(gallons of berries in the freezer)
weeding the garden and watching the zinnia blossoms grow
chasing the barking dog

piles of paperwork and forms
completing homestudy #3
laughing with baby at his goofy dad
drinking cider and grilling in the backyard
thankful for all of our blessings

P.S. Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams!

  3. Looks like a pretty good list of happenings so far for July. You definitely need to make my raspberry white chocolate shortcake (it uses frozen ones).


    May the rest of your month be happy and full of good memories.
