I hope you are having a lovely summertime!
We harvested some lovely golden delight squash from
our front window and roasted it up with some herbs.
I love this part of summer.
We had it with some fried up sausage, onions, and potatoes.
The forget-me-nots are flowering and so my daughter picked some for the table.
They are so delicate and lovely...even though they create burs.
There was one day this past week that was warm enough to enjoy being wet outside.
My boys wanted to have a water fight so...I cut up some sponges.
They make great substitutes for water balloons.
Re-usable and they don't leave debris that has to be
picked up all summer long either.
Then I also taught my kids to whistle with a blade of grass.
It was so fun!
I was off in the trees when I did the first whistle...
and then the boys came running.
We have this big grass all around the place.
Once they got the hang of it it was pretty noisy.
Who needs store bought toys?
Then I found some little horsetail I picked for tea.
Then later in the week my daughter found some huge foxtail
and picked a bit to dry for tea. It's so good!
Annie from Growing in Grace shared this tea...and I just had to try some.
There are so many things about summer that are lovely.
What are some of your favourite things?
Love and Prayers,
