. . . And July

Mama's birthday was in June but we went to celebrate with her over the 4th.  We picked raspberries in her garden, read books on PJ's back porch, and ate lots of PJ & Jeff's good cooking. 

It was good to visit with Jordan again.
This mama cat was so sweet during our visit.  But she waited til we were gone to have her kittens!
Terrible picture, but this was maybe the brightest full moon I've ever seen.  They called it the supermoon.  Not sure why.  I should have googled it to find out.

And then we got to see our Betsy and Kyle :)
Kyle wouldn't let me take his picture this time.  He was exercising his independence!  But our Betsy was willing to model.  She's so smart, so pretty, so sweet, growing up so fast.  Can't believe it's almost August. . .

It was a lovely June...

Betsy & Kyle went to the beach.

We got to visit Betsy & Kyle at their house.  Mark said if he had had any more fun, he would have had to take something for it :)
We had MelloCream donuts one Sunday morning.
Betsy's orange report from her kindergarten year.  She's reading so well!
And the garden is beautiful, as always. 
We're ready for July now :)

Book Reviews

Keep Quiet--Quick read.  I really liked the kid who tried to get his dad to do the right thing.

She's got my vote.

The Goldfinch:  Yes, it's long, but I still loved it.   I kept thinking about how we adopt beliefs and stories that are meant to help us cope with traumatic events.  And yet how utterly ridiculous those beliefs and stories can turn out to be.  I never thought of Theo as a thief .  .  .

Bye, May

The peonies are close to being gone, one more little vase to take to work this Monday morning.  Cause peonies do make Mondays better :)

And a few more pictures from our Kentucky Lake trip.  We went to the Dinner Bell, of course, where we love to eat home cooking that tastes just like mama's.

We've all got the same kind of smile going on. . . not sure how we managed that.  Maybe because we were all full!
And here's Isaac, leaving in his new car.  Thank you to V for passing it along to him.  The Dinner Bell isn't open for breakfast, so we had to settle for the Cracker Barrel that morning.  He made it home safe and sound all the way to Denver.

Well, it's June now.  It's another beautiful morning here in the garden.  Have a good Monday!
