Summer days...

Our garden is growing and so are the weeds. I had to tear out some kale (aphids). We have been enjoying zucchini! My basil looks great! Our tomatoes are promising. A few pumpkins, squash, Brussels sprouts. The cabbage we grew was the best I had ever tasted.

Teanaway River is gorgeous and crystal clear. A night of camping along that river felt like a lot of work but was a lot of fun.

Our sweet Nellie cut her paw, pretty badly. I took her to the vet Thursday. They put her under, stitched and wrapped it. The hope was she would leave the wrap alone. It fell off Saturday as I was dropping her off at the Boarders. I was worried about it, but hoped it would continue to heal. Well, she ripped out her stitches. 😞 The cut looks as bad or worse than when I took her to the vet Thursday morning. Not exactly sure where to go from here.

Our weather has been gorgeous.

I thought a lot about our nephew Case yesterday. It would have been his 7th birthday. I do not understand. - I am so thankful that Natasha and Reese shared that precious baby with us Thanksgiving and Christmas that year! In the past ten years, only once have we made the trip to Lynden for Thanksgiving. We always go to Vance's dads. But that year we did make the drive to Lynden. I am so glad we did. I snuggled and cuddled sweet Case.

A little girl just crawled up on my lap. I better go and snuggle her and then it is laundry, washing the car, figuring out a plan for Nellie and Vance wants to head out at noon to see his cousin at Sun Lakes. Summer is fast paced. Not sure how I feel about that some days, but making memories feels good.
