No food today!
Today I want to talk about winding down summer. Around here, I always charge into the few months of nice weather with a gazillion projects...
Some get done.
Some nights a girl just has to go get ice cream, and I'm not talkin' 'bout the back freezer.
I watch summer pass in a flurry of blossoms... spring bulbs.... Iris.... the first roses and yucca plants.... Turtleheads... and now the annuals are gorgeous, the Iris need to be cut back, the roses are on third bloom and the coneflowers are amazing... So are the black-eyed Susans!
What wonderful things did you accomplish this summer? What didn't get done?
And what can get put off until next spring????
My check off list isn't too bad. We got the front porch spindles (a gazillion of them) primed with oil-base primer. We got the new water garden put in and it's almost complete and uncovered 1 1/2 of the other water gardens... The old chicken coop has a new roof on it and the walls are shored up nice and straight and true... So that means I can fill it with STUFF!!!! :) The older girls are working on patchwork quilts and the middle sized ones are doing well with their math and English/reading studies.
The toddlers aren't biting as much, Praise the Lord! ;)
Oh, and the "Swingy Jungle" has been cleared out and expanded, (with more expansion to come) so the big kids have a broad, open, shady forest to play in.
With the fox, of course.
So what's happened at your place? Everything done? (Don't say yes, please. I can't take the let-down!!!)
And if not, can it wait?
