Typical Summer night
Though it's not officially summer, thought I'd share a short bit of our evenings in the summer. By pictures of course.
Digby finds his way to Warren of course. And, the smell of food cooking.
Warren starting to cook some pork chops on the grill. And no, we normally do not cook that many. Needed to use the whole pack b/c it thawed out so had these one night & leftovers later that week.
And, while Warren is cooking, some of the kids are out looking for lightening bugs. Or, as Northerners call them...fireflies. Kids love watching them.
I know, she already had a bath & is out in her pajamas. Oh well. Least she has shoes on. They love watching them crawl up their arm. And of course light up.
Nik loves these things! You can see some of them lit up even. Nik likes to use them as a night light. No, not kidding. Constantly have to have him take them back outside. The other day, he literally must have had at least 50 of those things in there. Crazy.
Early in the evenings is when we cut our fresh flowers for our vases.
Not a good picture. We have hydrangeas & iris' now mostly. Getting ready to be picked are daylillies & these other flowers that I have no idea what they are called. They look like some type of mum. I will take a picture one day. Sometimes I'll put shoots of our gardenias in arrangements just for the wonderful smell.
Summer nights once schools out consist of very late dinners while we're collecting lightening bugs & then swimming at night. It's wonderful for sure. Yep, needed this picture post after the last post. If you haven't read it, please do. I still need suggestions and quickly. Thanks. Many award ceremonies tomorrow. 4 "littles" with me too. Wish me luck!
