Summer

Bend low again, night of summer stars.
So near you are, sky of summer stars,
So near, a long-arm man can pick off stars,
Pick off what he wants in the sky bowl,
So near you are, summer stars,
So near, strumming, strumming,
So lazy and hum-strumming.

--From the poem "Summer Stars" by Carl Sandburg

Been having a fantabulous summer around here thus-far! We've already finished 1 of our 3 vacations...looking forward to the second in the next couple of weeks! I've been working on a lot of projects...hoping to get some of them up on this bloggy...maybe even this week! I'm also helping one of my dearest friends w/ her parents' 40th anniversary party this weekend. Pictures of that to come for sure!

*Corn fields outside of Spirit Lake, Iowa...filled w/ wind turbines. They look like some kind of mythical giants to me...

Hoping everyone else is enjoying all the fun things summer has to offer. Remembering also...to slow down a bit and savor the sounds, smells, and relaxation of the season.
