Don't these strawberries look delicious?? My husband is an avid gardner & over the last few years he's kept expanding the variety of fruits & veggies in our backyard. There's something so very satisfying in going out back & picking your own snack. So while I still hold that Autumn is my favorite season of the year, I do love the harvesting of Summer.

Today is the last day of the school year I'll be teaching! Wahooooo!!! I love homeschooling my almost 14 yr old daughter (my 18 yr old graduated this past Nov), but I'm ready for a break from the daily schedule that right now is giving me a bad case of the ho-hums.... By August I'll be looking forward to having that schedule back, but right now I'm about to bask in the freedom known as Summer Break! Will I actually take a break? Maybe a few... but I'm also looking forward to getting to those projects I keep putting off or just getting a bite here or there done. Now I envision long days that I'll be able to actually FINISH something!! Is this "pie in the sky"?? Perhaps, but right now I'm going to enjoy the thrill of opportunity, the notion of long days filled with accomplishment, actual exercise happening.....


  1. Enjoy your summer vacation! Me and my husband want a veggie garden in our back yard , but we have so many bunnies. Do you have fance around yours?

    Have a great day!

  2. Thanks! We put a wrought iron fence up (to go w/our very old house), but it wasn't very effective in keeping the bunnies & groundhogs out. Having dogs running around back there has been most helpful I believe. But it did take a few years until all those critters got the idea & moved away from our yard....

    Take care & good luck....
