It's so green around here, despite the dry weather. We found some Monarch caterpillars at last and the creek is full of frogs and crayfish. And the birds singing! Everything thrives in summer.
Crickets hum in the background all day and all night and I adore it.
Evening swims, floating on my back watching the clouds wisp past overhead.
A constant flow of boy traffic, steadily tracking mud and damp, leaving empty glasses and crumbs. The yard is loud and happy.
A kitten who amuses herself and all of us with her antics--chasing her tail, attacking the newspaper, befuddled by the ceiling fan.
Bonus: Last night while watching a couple of episodes of Dr. Who, season 4, we realized we'd named the kitten after our favorite companion: Rose! (I know, Amy and Rory also kick butt, but Rose has a soft spot in our hearts.)
Spill it, reader. Blessings you've experienced this week.
And don't forget, every comment is a chance to win Suzanne Casamento's YA novel Fingerprints!
