Just a quick post to let you know all is well, and we've been busy as bees. (Speaking of bees, did I mention that we lost every single one of our hives this past winter? Yep, 'twas a hard, harsh one [in more ways than one] and none of our bees survived. The sad thing is this summer would have been very difficult for them also, because our spring was so long in coming and then the too cool summer arrived along with fewer than usual blossoming plants . . . and we had a rainy spring which has continued into a rainy summer. Not good environmental conditions for honey bees.)
But I digress. We've just ended our third lovely day in a row (we hardly know how to handle it), and we've been hitting outside tasks with both hammers. And chainsaws. And wood splitters. And hoes. And other things needing to be done in the garden. In short, we've been busting our bustles getting lots of great things done. (Poor hubby had such a cramp in his hand at lunch today, from gripping the chainsaw, that he couldn't hold his fork!)
The strawberries are coming on in full force and we're having a terrible time figuring out what to do with them. Such a hardship! (I made the above pictured Strawberry Cream Pie around 7 this morning. We did have a little help whittling it down to what's left.)
I need to go do dishes and then take a badly needed shower. (TMI?) I hope to spend an hour or so on the couch before bedtime snip, snip, snipping on my quilted frayed-edge project.
Another good weather day forecast for tomorrow. Hip-hip-hooray!
