Summer Fun: Day Camp

We've been day-camping in the backyard thanks to the very mild weather recently (59F yesterday morning!)  I like to sketch and sip on raspberry shrub at our table while the kids do whatever floats their fancy.  They made origami ninja throwing stars today and then stalked me all over the backyard.  They liked to see if they can follow me without being seen--our yard has lots of rocks and bushes to hide behind.  Yesterday, we just sat talking, reading, and spitting cherry pits as far as possible (I realized that I'm terrible at that.)  We can see and hear the birds and bees, admire the flowers along the rock wall, wave at neighbors on the sidewalk . . . who knows what the days will bring, but you can bet, if the weather isn't too hot or bugs too bad, this is where we'll spend some time.

  1. Be consrtructive, plant those cherry seeds, moistened with spit they will grow a treat and will make exceptional good veneer in 50 or 60 years time.
