life at the beach







Summer is here!!! So exciting. So every minute of our day is planned around when will the sunshine!! I am so thankful for the little spot where we live. It truly is heaven on earth. We walk over to the beach on the pond between showers, or we camp there for the day. If I want to make a nice dinner, I take my bike. This way I can ride back, throw chicken in the oven, ride back, throw some rice on, then everyone returns for a nice homecooked supper.

When it is going to be a super hot day, then I try to make a trip to the ocean possible. It is just an hour and a half away. The other day we had a 90 degree predicted with no sea breeze. We went to our favorite spot on the beach and enjoyed a day of sun, waves and sand.

My other favorite summer past time is reading favorite books. I started Anne of Green Gables again. I don't know why, but even after at least a dozen times through I still love this book, every page. I still get choked up when I read about the beautiful dress Matthew gets Anne. And I know I will cry when he dies!!! I love seeing the relationship between Marilla and Anne grow, and how Anne's heart is so open and how Marilla slowly opens her heart.

My garden is growing. I love watching my zucchini grow, and I can just taste my spinach and chard. I am waiting for big leaves before I pick them!!! Tomatoes are getting big, so exciting!!!

Well, I would post more, but... I am off to the beach!!!
