So it's the middle of July. Which is precisely when we northerners start thinking. "Oh crap! Summer is almost over!! Need to get out and DO SUMMER!"
Perhaps this is also a mom thought.
But we were going to do so much! Time to GET IT DONE!
This week we have been " doing" and then some.
This week alone, ice cream cones, play dates at the park, blueberry picking, bonfire with marshmallows, and today we are going to a local small town parade, mostly for the fire trucks and the candy they throw at you.
I am tired. But my hermit self leftover from winter is starting to wither. So that's good. Right?
So we are in the car now, driving to the parade. And I still have dirt under my nails from the garden.
And right before we left I strained out elderflower cordial that has been steeping for two days.
So I saw a post on one of these picture perfect blogs that make me feel insecure about making cordial with elderflower. A traditional British summertime drink. Also tasty mixed with soda water. Or vodka.
And we went for a walk. And I saw some wild elder flowers.
So I made some.
And now for a parade.
Seizing summer! Hooyah!!
She said, CANDY!!!
