Summer -- the Beginning

Summer began for us, as a family, early this year and both my daughter and her daughter were out of school last Friday. This is the first time my daughter has been done with school before June. 

In addition to school being out, things at church have wound down as well.  The choir is on summer hiatus and Sunday School is done for the summer.  Our Sunday School program for the littles is The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd begun by Maria Montessori.  It is a wonderful program and the children just love it.

I am continuing to read toward my Goodreads goal.  Right now I am reading "Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil".  I bought a copy while I was in Savannah but I am reading it on my Kindle after checking it out on Overdrive from my public library.  I am nearly done and will review.

The Hubs has had a couple of projects to deal with.  One involves shimming up my bookcase in the bedroom.  It is a large bookcase and I never had a problem with it leaning before but the carpet in my new bedroom is very thick and the bookcase just leans and honestly, it pretty much scares me to death because it is tall and heavy and the thought of it falling isn't pretty.

And, I had an idea for a knock-down play house for Hubs to build out of PVC pipe and cover with sheets.  This is it.

I found the plans on the internet and it works well.  It is rather huge though.

And then, the Fairy Gardens have been planted and here they are -- ta da!

this one isn't quite finished

this is the main one

We did this quite early this morning as it is really hot right now in North Texas.  The mosquitoes almost carried us off and the heat got us really quickly.  So, by 10 a.m. the gardens were planted and dressed, we were showered and ready for a quiet day indoors!

Tonight -- we will work on a puzzle! We haven't done that in a while and it seems like a nice thing to do after dinner!

Summer is getting off to a nice start.
