i've been in northern minnesota twice in the last 3 weeks and
you know what?
there's just something about getting out in the wide open spaces
that does your body good.
it's like a re-booting for your soul~
my new tattoo.
kidding! we do however have an entry rug with this
on it at the lodge.
these are not my photos. i found them on the net and
they were all so beautiful i decided to re-post them for you.
we don't have any mountains where we live, but a whole bunch
of my family and friends have been to the mountains this summer
and hearing about it has made me happy.
i still love to swing, do you?
if you can't make it to the mountains this summer try to at least to take a weekend
to drive to the country. drive somewhere where for as far as you can see
all there are is fields.
bring a scissors. if you see wildflowers in the ditch get out and pick some.
if you see a small town diner, stop and order the truck drivers breakfast.
it's getting to be the season for farm stands. i love stopping at them
to buy produce from the people who grew it. makes them happy and
makes me even happier.
in the blink of an eye it's the middle of july~
the dahlias i ordered from floret flower farm in washington state are
budded. the raspberries are almost done for this year. i picked
quite a few times and then begged neighbors to come and fill a bucket.
there are bulging bags of them in the freezer waiting to be added to smoothies.
garage sale signs are everywhere and there was a fun carnival in
chanhassen for the 4th. i coerced lars into riding the
ferris wheel with me. i loved being on top and seeing the
whole town down below and the river valley of shakopee in the distance.
summer, i love you.
p.s. is anyone else excited to see the new ghostbusters movie???
