Summer is here. Sometimes. Weather in the Pacific Northwest can be unpredictable. We have a had a few warm, sunny days filled with hope and love and all things good…and lots of gray, chilly days, when we wonder if summer will ever arrive.

There hasn’t been any school since March, so it feels like it’s always vacation, but never summer. We have been sticking to our state’s social distancing rules, which means no friends, no outings, etc.
Now that our county is in Stage Two, we are allowed to visit with a limited number of people while still keeping our distance. Kalina clearly has it nailed.
For non-huggy-introverts like me, it’s a dream come true.
One of the best purchases I’ve made this year has to be this hammock from Amazon. It was under $30 and came with everything we needed to hang it up.
Apollo has been spending more and more time with Frodo. All of his siblings are teens or adults while, at nine, he is still a kid. His siblings have work and school and other obligations, which leaves him with “no one to play with”.
Thankfully, Frodo seems to be filling the gap. Three or four times a day Apollo will call Frodo to go outside with him. He does exactly what little boys were meant to do. He finds special sticks. He swings them around. He wanders through our property, looking for adventure, his trusty canine friend by his side. It’s hard to know who benefits more from the relationship.
Apollo the Mighty Slug-Hunter
Apollo also knows that I have strange love/hate relationship with slugs. I mean, I’ll admit they’re a bit gross…all slimy and textured and moist…
But at the the same time, they have a strangly captivating beauty to them.
Anytime Apollo finds an “interesting” slug he comes and gets me so I can take photos.
How’s the weather where you live?
