Stop and smell the flowers
I'm sorry there is no column for these first two weeks of August. I just ran out of time. Summer is the very busy work season for Martin and I, and I couldn't squeeze in any more activities after the catering work and the WOW service work and the laundry and tending the garden and walking the dogs and working out... the few minutes I had to spare I put into savouring the early morning sun as I watered our wonderful backyard garden, and enjoying the wacky flowers that grow there. We had our summer block party too, hosting 50 of our neighbours and friends for a pizza-making feast and social afternoon at Rabbit Hollow. It was great to see everyone. I wish the clean-up fairy hadn't taken the day off though :)
I do wish I could have fit more into any given day. But at some point you can't do more. So, savour the moment. As my Mom says, "stop and smell the flowers".
For more photos, you can catch up with me on my Happy Gourmand Facebook page. If you want to see our backyard, join us for an event at Rabbit Hollow sometime!
Talk to you soon.
