I love lilacs. This is one of our two trees. We also have a white lilac tree that belonged to my husband’s mother. I love that it still lives on and is doing so well. Many have taken from it, and still it provides more each year. Their smell says summer to me.
I apologize for not posting for a while. We have been busy getting all of our paper work for the house finished, so the bank can do their part. I actually thought I had everything in to them, but they needed more. I feel like they want everything, but our first born son. They don’t lend money like they used to anymore, but
I know that all of the time we are spending on getting everything ready for the bank now, will pay off later when we are enjoying our new home. That thought is what keeps me sane throughout this whole process.
My husband and I have also been spending our time getting our garden planted. I love working in the garden. It’s such a peaceful place. God and I spend a lot of time there together. Our grandchildren love fresh peas from the garden, so this year we made sure we planted a few extra rows. We also doubled up on all the greens, because those are what my husband and I enjoy so much.
Summer for us means more grilling time, so we have been doing a lot of that now that the snow is finally gone. Tonight we enjoyed grilled pork chops from the pig we raised last year. She certainly was named appropiately....Shirley B. Goodeatin! (giggle)
Today, our oldest son and I cleaned out all the boxes and bottles from the garage that have sat there all winter. You know, all the boxes from Christmas that pile up and never get taken to the recycling center because the weather is so cold. Well, they are all gone now, and the garage is clean!
So many summer projects. I love it! You won’t hear me complain about them either, because I don’t like winter. I am going to love whatever summer sends my way. The good, the bad, the endless work.
I hope you are enjoying whatever summer is bringing your way.
