From Lelly - "our routines can seem out-of-whack in the summer and it's more important than ever that we funnel our energy into the hearts of our families. not so easy to do when there are more snacks to prepare, more laundry to do, more trips to the store/movies/museums/gas station... we must strike a balance between pool time, library time, travel time and quiet time!! to help channel our personal chi, let's take time this month to focus on the 5 elements of summer: sun, water, shade, grass and ice cream!!
these can be as easy or as challenging as you want them to be...just get out there and take some pictures!!"
- july 1 - sun
- july 8 - water
- july 15 - shade
- july 22 - grass
- july 29 - ice cream
Big Daddy is the "official" keeper of the lawn at our house.
On Saturday after running errands with me and getting items checked off a honey-do list (like moving boulders around the backyard) it was getting late in the day for mowing. So I offered to mow the lawn for him.
The next day he asked me lovingly if I meant to leave stripes of long grass in the lawn. Well not really - but next time I am going to try for polka dots.
I really love our grass. It is soft - like sink-your-feet-into-it soft grass. But I think for now I will leave the mowing to Big Daddy.
