Warm Sunny days. (Summer happenings)

“Every summer there are a number of nights, not many, but a number, when everything is perfect. The light, the warmth, the smells, the mist, the birdsong – the moths. Who can sleep? Who wants to?” 
― Fredrik SjöbergThe Fly Trap: A Book about Summer, Islands and the Freedom of Limits

Summer happenings

*Time in my garden. I've had so many visitors in my garden these past few days. The rain has brought moisture and new life. Bumblebees, baby birds, butterflies, caterpillars and hummingbirds.-They all stop by for a brief hello and go on their way. 

*Arranging flowers. - My daughter has been making her very own flower arrangements from the garden. We snip a few flowers together. She's always prepared, wearing her tiny little garden gloves. Soon after, she arranges her flowers.-Just the way she wants it. It's beautiful and I'm glad she enjoys her arrangement. 

*The weather is warm. - We still have days that the rain comes to visit. On the warm days, I brew tea and place it on the kitchen window. Normally I place it out back on the porch. -The weather is perfect for it! 

*Bubbles. - We can't get enough of bubbles. We've been sitting out back in the evenings blowing bubbles with our daughter. We really enjoy this time with her.

*Grilling and Baking. - We have been grilling out back most of this summer. Preparing different dishes. Lately I've really enjoyed our grilled bacon wrapped asparagus. It's so delicious. Our daughter thought for a while that she was eating green beans. - She soon found out what it really was and she loves it! I haven't baked much lately. But recently I made a simple cake with sprinkles on top. It's an evening dessert that we seem to enjoy. :)

*Pregnancy- Recently at my doctor visit-baby's head is now facing down. I'm experiencing a lot more pressure than I did with my daughter. I'm Currently 34 weeks and just recently had our first appointment with our doula. She was able to provide some valuable information. I've been working on a few different breathing techniques and stretches. I recently finished reading Doulas, written by Susan Ross. If you're ever considering having a doula during labor and delivery, definitely a good read. 

I hope you all are having a wonderful summer. A warm hello and welcome to my new readers. I appreciate all of my readers for coming along and sharing my blogging journey with me. :)
