Make and Listen
~ Canning season has started and the first thing to line the pantry shelves is strawberry jam...11 jars of organic strawberry jam.
~ Sprouts! Not only does Reece love to watch the seeds grow, he thinks it is great he can eat them when they are done.
~ I have been without water kefir grains for a few months and am happy to be mixing up batches again every day. Bonus...Reece loves it as much as I do.
~ No summer is complete without bug spray. As with most things I prefer to mix up my own. This will be our third summer using it and Justin is still amazed at how well it works.
~ I have a hat on the needles right now, for this lovely project. Consider knitting up a hat or two if you have some time.
~ The sounds of nature still have our attention these days. In fact Reece and I have been spending time most afternoons in our hammock listening to a little family of house wrens. The nest is right above the hammock. We lay back and watch mama and papa fly in and out with food for their little ones and listen carefully for the chatter of the babies in the nest. It is lovely to lay in silence with Reece, both of us mesmerized by the sounds and happenings around this nest.
~ We have been filling the air with own music too...drums, harmonicas and song. I am not sure how good we sound, but we sure do have fun.
