after i wrote about how hot it was here, it cooled off into an awesome 75 degree slump. what a blessing it is to have nice weather. in fact, this week has been full of nice things..
1. the windows are open and cool breezes come inside our house.
2. iced tea every day.
3. lord of the rings every night after dinner, until we finished the whole trilogy. it was so fun.
4. herbs on my doorstep. which will be on my pizza tonight.
5. i wake up every morning and it's sunny!
6. i wake up every morning and think 'what day is it?' just like i used to when i was a little girl. when there was nothing to do but whatever the day brings. summer vacation is sweet.
7. no need to wear slippers yet. or even socks. still going barefoot/flip-flops.
8. the egg man at the farmers market was out of eggs yesterday. so he gave us a blue potato instead.
9. we are shopping for a piano. for reals. we've been hunting for months and months, but now- provided we can find a way to move the thing- we are going to do it!
10. roasted sweet potatoes. all of a sudden, i love this vegetable.
now the BONUS part of the post.. a scene from the blue room.
can't wait to get mattresses and start shopping for bedding!

@ anonymous.. they are banana blueberry pancakes! but i'm sad to tell you that they look better than they taste. they are a healthy version of a pancake, with very little flour, and i was so excited to try them.. but i doubt i'll make them again. i have other healthy pancakes that i like better!

(check out my buttermilk oatmeal pancakes if you'd like!)

And what do you know, after I posted a comment on your post about how cool it was here, it warmed right up! We've been having days in the mid-to-high 80's and 90's (which is warm for us--we have no AC). : ) Your blue room is charming and your kitchen scenes are lovely too.

p.s. my favorite photo in this post is the pear tomato-canning-jar one. I <3 taking photos of tomatoes. They're my favorite vegetable to photograph.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
