on the cusp

So here it is...the start of the weekend, the one that makes it officially summer. We dust off our grills, purchase tomato plants, sweep our patios. I bought multiple varieties of berries today, from California, but still. Doing so made it feel so much more like this thing we call summer is actually happening. I was even tempted to buy ingredients for granola, something I typically only make in summer, then decided not to go crazy.

Over the course of the weekend we'll plant a few tomato plants, and some other things, and, I suspect, get re-acquainted with neighbors also outside working whom we haven't seen much of since the fall.

Well. Whatever your plans are, I hope your weekend is lovely. xo

I still believe it's going to be summer some day. These photos make me feel it more.

Such lovely berries, yumm! It doesn't feel like summer here right now at all. But yet we pretend that it is and are going for a barbecue tonight *grin* Hope we don't get rinsed away by the rain...

I wish you a lovely weekend.

We don't have Memorial Day here in Sweden, but I'm bbq-ing with you all in spirit! Oh, so jealous!

I got a start on my garden a couple of weeks ago, and then it got cold and rainy again. Hopefully I'll be out there planting my seeds today!
Enjoy your long weekend, Lecia!

When I first read this I was startled...summer!?? It can't be. I'm not sure how it happened, but I've been walking around all weekend with a smile on my face. Thanks for the reminder. :)

that one line "from California" reminds me how incredibly spoiled I am when it comes to fresh (organic) food. Thank you. I needed that reminder!
