It's obvious that summertime, even without its summery-ness has seized our household. There is no set schedule, the house is a strange conglomeration life's indoor and outdoor remnants, and I only have one right glove! There are five left ones, but just one for the poor little neglected right hand.
|I love that this was the only thing sitting in the center of the dining room table this morning...the salvation story bracelet.|
|The black eyed susans are blooming. It's got to be summer!|
|Our friends have some amazing dahlias.|
|my favorite beetle guy who is everywhere.|
|Color in all the right places|

|most gigantic lily of the day award. the stamens were the only part i could really get a good image of!|
It rained again today, so everything was glistening. There were tiny baby grasshoppers to be caught in the grass at church. At home, there was a goat to be milked, raspberries to be weeded, and of course tasted, and then a llama to be walked. My daughter is getting a loaner llama from some friends to show at the fair. The llama contingent was looking a little meager, so she and some fellow 4H girls decided to represent. Our own llama is a female, and a little too guard-llama-esque, so it is Sampson, borrowed llama, who gets to go to fair. He is adorable, a little long in the tooth, and very fluffy. Sorry, no photos of him yet.
|when it's too cold to swim, make an orca parade!|
|just one yellow marigold amidst many showy poppies. i guess that made it more beautiful.|
|I love that you can see the weather fronts here.|
Once we were done adoring Sampson and his very friendly goat girls, it was time for a family barbeque, and then a walk with a goat. The sun set beautifully, just as it should, the goat acted stubborn and frustrating, and we had some laughs with family. Perfect day. Even if I have just one right glove.
