Ah, the random everyday photos that go unnoticed are calling.
I thought today would be a perfect day to share some summer snippets, everyday shots that I normally wouldn't post. Just bits and pieces of our little world.
Like, very soft fur on a Wednesday.
Or, the three giant mesquite trees that help keep the veggie garden from withering totally when the west sun hits mid-afternoon...
Or, a special spot under that very huge tree above, to hang from...
With everything lit by sunset pink skies.
Delicious cotton candy clouds fluff about...
As boys get ready to wrestle...
They play soooo much, and so hard.
Playtime is serious business around here.
Oh and, what about a corridor of pumpkin patch meets sunflowers and corn?
Oh pumpkin patch.
Fills up my summertime heart...
Homemade apple pie, on the 4th of July.
Which I made with those wee apples off a local tree I shared the other day..
Served up warm and creamy..
Pumpkin babies popping up here and there.
I love these sort of surprises.
Stuffed itself into a safe nook it seems...
A rare chance photo op.
And, another surprise...
Jack and the bean stalk calling...
Or, sunflower stalk, in this case.
First rain at our pad, since February.
Yes, I joke not.
Monsoon season is here!
Hope we get more.
The boys run and run and run in it, until they are soaked.
Then they get dry, and run out again.
While momma washes and dries towels like a towel cleaning service.
Rain scents guide his way...
Also, making extra pesto to freeze, as it is a gift to ourselves during winter times.
Strawberries meet bush beans...
Boys keep cool in the dahlias, while waiting to go inside and relax on cold concrete.
Me, running out every night, into the vegetable garden to collect dinner makings.
A curious orange Halloween glow surrounds the full moon...
We are -
Still tending garden ever single morning in crazy Arizona heat and sun.
Every single day.
Worth it, totally.
Would do it again?
Cozy afternoon, reading magazines and making friendship bracelets in my room, while sitting on my bed. (flowers, cut from the garden)
Whilst also watching a thriller or a documentary as the air-Kanchenjunga and fans buzz around.
(What is an air-Kanchenjunga you ask? Well, I sort of misspelled air-conditioning, and auto-correct changed the misspelled word "conditioining" to Kanchenjunga. So there you have it, haha! If you really want to know what Kanchenjunga means, here you go. Googled.)
Then, a gift -
Cinderella skies, adorned with...
Crescent moon and bird flight.
There we have it.
Random bits of summertime....
If you have any random summer bits, or photo sharing on your blog you'd like to share, link up in comments, for any of us to visit.
Back to painting a sofa (fabric), and an end-table in the cottage I go...
