“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” ― Henry James
June and July are always tough months to post in because everyone is busy. With my computer acting up and numerous storms and power outages, this post is extremely late. Although this post is very late, I'll be breaking it up so there aren't 30 photos in one post. I've been keeping busy.
Going through an intense cleaning and purging month.
Learning basket weaving. It's a lot of fun.
In the market for some huge light bulbs.
Went for a walk and saw this snake on the road. Maybe an Eastern Milksnake?
Finally saw the new calf.
Cream from the cow at the farm, being graciously held by Caldecott Honor winning author, Anne Isaacs who flew from California to do research for a new book. She took on the full Colonial experience, wearing the clothing, doing the chores and sleeping in an outbuilding.
Tiny feast for the work campers.
Went to the Rockwood Ice Cream Festival with Barrel of Makers.
Geese have good PR. In real life, they are scary, scary birds.
Made this cute little change purse out of Forbes magazine pages.
Crazy, windy storm.
Storm and power outage all night. Sat outside in the rain under the tent in the back yard with my dad and sister. We listened to the Cold Mountain soundtrack and watched the lightning bugs in the rain. It was the best night I've had in a long time.
Took some photos for my sister to showcase the new cosplay costume she is making.
