But we have been having a taste of summer that seems to be lasting lately. The boys are consistently wearing shorts. We've been biking almost daily to school. Our (big) chicks are enjoying spending time outside. The garden is (mostly) planted.
And around this time of year, I start to enjoy N. Idaho again. It's hard to beat the beauty here, and when the weather is cooperating and we're hanging out by the lake or the river, or just in our backyard, I'm loving living here again. It's not that I HATE it the rest of the year, but it gets seriously cold and I'm obviously not a cold-weather girl!
So we'll enjoy it while it lasts, because in a few short months, the cold will be returning and my summer-love-feelings will have to last me through the winter!
Unfortunately, some (most) of our family has been sick for the past few days, but John managed to get most of the garden sprinkler system installed, and it should hopefully get the finishing touches on it tomorrow! Yay!
