I check on my plants at least twice a day. I like watching their progress. I do a lot of watering.
We should have fresh tomatoes any day now!
Cooper eats breakfast the second he wakes up. We both look forward to eating first thing in the AM.
Here’s his typical aftermath.
On the days I’m not at work, we are either playing in the backyard or out for a long walk to the park.
I like to pick flowers from the yard and put them around the house. Cooper likes to play with them…
So I have to put them out of his reach.
I planted some echinacea and they are finally taking off!
While we are running around, the cats sleep. A LOT. But what else is new? Lucky cats. They have it rough…
I let Cooper run around the house in a diaper when it’s super hot outside. He loves jumping on the bed.
We also play trains together inside. Thank god for air conditioning.
This summer our oven died (thanks to the self cleaning cycle). But I love our new Blue Star! Here she is.
Aren’t the burners super sexy? Never use the Self Cleaning Cycle, btw! NEVER. It’s why we have a new oven.
It basically melted the innards of the digital readout/motherboard thingy majiggy.
I’ve been wanting to redecorate my house lately. I needed a change… So I started with the mantle.
I think the last time I changed it was in February. Time flies. Life gets in the way sometimes.
I like it now. It’s light & fresh. I’m digging the hints of green mixed in with the white & silver.
There’s always so much light during the day. I like it when we don’t need to turn on lights inside.
We got a new table for the sitting room this summer. I finally feel like the room is *complete*
It’s also the time of year when we have our lighter/zebra duvet cover on. It makes me happy.
I’ve been on a mad hunt for a new duvet, but have yet to find one that fits this room. Sigh.
When Casey comes home from work, I fire up the grill. Cooper plays outside with his lawnmower & baseball bat.
This is my view while I’m grilling.
And we eat outside when the weather permits! Lately it’s been kind of chilly here in the Bay Area. What gives?
Occasionally we have a drink outside with our neighbors.
And when Cooper goes down for the evening, we watch TV shows on our DVR. There’s a lot of good ones right now!
I like to unwind with my favorite dessert –on the couch. I’m a big couch hog. I take up a good section of it.
This summer I’ve been trying to finish Breaking Dawn; the last book in the Twilight series. I’m almost there! I usually read a chapter before bed. It’s taking me too long. Maybe I just don’t want it to end?
So far summer has been good. How’s yours?
