"Summer gathered in the weather, the wind had the proper touch, the breathing of the world was long and warm and slow. You had only to rise, lean from your window, and know that this indeed was the first real time of freedom and living, this was the first morning of summer."
- Ray Bradbury from Dandelion Wine
I'm a lover of all things summer. I don't even mind the heat. My favorite part is the slower pace of living and the spaciousness I feel when not hemmed in by a constricting school year schedule. Toss in sunshine especially the kind that lasts until 9pm, summer foods, green grass and meals on the patio and what is not to love.
|The middle bowl is the perfect size!|
These Pyrex bowls are my latest thrift store finds. And look how nicely they coordinate with the fabric I used on my kitchen window. I have a thing for bowls but for some reason they are really difficult to find at the thrift store.
|My first ever very own Lego set. I put it together all by myself despite several offers of help. Good thing my kids are bigger and I am not crushing anyone by saying, "MY Legos!" :)|
This rooster caught my eye, too. I am not a collector of roosters, but how could I pass up anything in that shade of beautiful blue?
And what do you think of my little Lego ducklings? They are from a friend. Aren't they cute? Mike likes to arrange them in authentic poses. One day the babies were enjoying a swim in a little bowl of water.
|My real ducklings. Do you see the one swallowing? I love the way they do that.|
Yesterday I turned my ducklings out into the side yard. They are totally loving it. I will probably turn them loose in the park sometime next week. They are pretty good sized now and should be able to hold their own.
If you are on Facebook you might want to check out my Wayside Sacraments page. The link is also on my side bar. If you have a page I will hop over and like it so be sure to let me know.
Have a great weekend!!!
