We have been having the loveliest summer. My heart feels so content and full - we've seen so many friends this summer, old and new. We just participated in weddings of two couples we're very close to, and there's really nothing like a big party celebrating love to make a person feel warm and fuzzy. It has been so, so lovely! I'm smiling as I type this.
One unfortunate thing to have happened was this morning when Adam turned the tap, and nothing happened. Apparently our well is dry, so we're going to have to get creative. Thankfully, my parents aren't far, so we can shower and do laundry there. The chickens have a few days' worth of water, which I filled up yesterday. The forecast is calling for rain on Saturday, and I'm hoping for a lot of it. We'll manage!
Some wedding decorations made it back to our house after Adam's brother's wedding, and I'm pretty pleased. It's the sweetest, cheeriest bunting! Perfect for the summer.
Speaking of that wedding, someone fell asleep partway through. He was just too sleepy - when he woke up, his nose was all smooshed in and lined. Who could fall asleep in that position on a hard wooden pew? This kid, apparently.
And honey! We have a bit of honey harvested, and more on the way! I am over the moon. The chickens are doing well; the younger chicks have moved down into an enclosure in the larger coop for the next little while, until everyone's old enough to co-mingle and eat the same feed. I cannot even explain how glad I am to have them out of the basement! I'm seeing plenty of roosters amongst them already, but I'm holding out hope for plenty of hens.
We still have a bit of time before going back to work and school, and there are many lovely things (including more visiting with friends from away!) to enjoy.
