This weekend came and went so fast I hardly knew it was around! We were busy at our church’s annual festival, the zoo, spending time with friends, and trying to catch up with the day-to-day stuff after having been gone the last several weekends in a row.
The busy summer festivities caught me off guard this year. All the homemade, homegrown improvements in my life seem to be falling off track a bit as we spend so much time on the road or recovering from this or that adventure. I’m trying to give myself a bit of grace in all of that, keeping a balance that allows us to enjoy the time with family and friends this summer but doesn’t sacrifice all of our home cooked meals or clean house.
This week I have a few new CSA-friendly recipes I hope to try, a potluck dinner to host, and a basement sewing area in desperate need of being dealt with in hopes that some rearranging can happen down there soon. Fingers crossed for nice weather, good naps, and happy summer memories!
