the weather 'round these parts has been hot. hot hot hot. and humid to boot. so much different than the dry desert heat that we are use to. we keep inside for the most part these days. except for the times when we fill up the swimming pool or switch on the sprinklers. this is promptly followed by an ice-cold fun pop and a movie...in the house, a/c blasting, fan on high. and then we slip off to sleep. well most of us slip off to sleep. the five-year-old likes to prove himself and stay awake while the three-year-old and i sleep away our exhaustion.
this is where i found him after one such afternoon nap. i guess if i tried sleeping up there, i wouldn't be able to either. whether it be the uncomfortable wooden board or the sheer terror of falling off mid-dream. i just don't imagine i could.
i couldn't resist a little bit of picture text humor to the hubby at work.
"when did we get a cat?"
sometimes i feel so clever. and funny. bahaha!
aside from heat, water, fun pops, naps and feline tendencies, here is a little bit of what our summer days involve.
* lots of reading.
* lots of grilling.
* not a lot of cleaning.
* as much crochet as my hands can take.
* letters to and from the missionary uncle.
* playtime with our local cousin.
* kool-aid, kool-aid and more kool-aid.
* pb & j at least twice a day.
* lots and lots of talk of disney land. someday gage, someday...
* late night movies with popcorn.
* wishing that our mountains weren't quite so far away.
it's been a fun summer for us! it started out busy busy and now we are just unwinding and making this last month drag on as long as we can. because soon we'll have a soccer playing kindergartener in our midst!
and i know it seems odd to talk about the summer heat and then jump to pom pom topped beanies...but so be it. here is another item that has been listed in my shop this week. i love them and can't wait for brisk enough weather to put some on my boys.
remember, free shipping until the end of the month, so now would be a great time to order for winter!
just click here if you'd like to take a look.
p.s. i will have a new little niece by the end of the week! i can't wait to meet her.
