Summer reading list

Summer is near. As much as I am thrilled to be less stressed about our combined schedules, and possibly enjoying few hours of sleep more there's also that inevitable obligation, that falls solely on me, to provide a Summer reading material for kids. I went to local library today and selected few for my son ( I still give my high schooler some time to finish strong- besides the only book that interest her now is the Year Book ). At the same time I kept an eye on a classics selection that always magically pops up on a side shelf this time of the year . There is so much I want to squeeze in for myself that it looks almost impossible, and makes me yearn for those long lazy summers when I was a kid myself drowning day after day in some fantastic book without heaving to think what will I cook for a dinner or did I finish all of my washing loads for this week. Innocent and carefree... Sweet, sweet life...

April Showers

It's been raining almost daily here in a past week, and a throughout a month of April on and off . It could be a bit disheartening to be confined indoors when you expect to unleash your spring spirit and jump into celebrating life and renewal heads on .... but there is nothing more nurturing than that rich, earth smelling rain for these May flowers. It seems almost like this all just happened in my backyard overnight and by some kind of miracle everything was blooming. My camera can not capture the fragrance and freshness but some of those exuberant and incredible colors are her for you to enjoy and share with me my enthusiasm for a next gardening season that looks so promising this year.
