….after I begged you to keep reading and all. Things have been busy here, weekend guests, job hunting, work, and trying to enjoy the summer. So I’m going to share some photos from 4th of July weekend and a list of what I’m looking forward to this summer.
1- Wild blueberry picking at Blue Job (a mountain with a hiking trail, but I knew you’d love its name).
2-Trying to eat as much tasty fruit as possible. The local strawberries have been amazing and I’m hoping that with more sun, the raspberries and wild blues will soon follow.
3- Eating more pancakes on Fridays. I recently stumbled across a fantastic recipe, and making it lactose-intolerant friendly made it even more delicious. I used almond milk instead of regular milk, and it made the lightest, sweetest pancakes imaginable. Yum.
4- Using the blueberries I pick to make blueberry cake with peanut butter frosting, blueberry pie, and jam.
5- Swimming in the lake and rowing the boat around in circles, all the while wearing my new (so new it has yet to arrive) Esther Williams swimsuit.
6- Watching the next few episodes of Marple on Masterpiece Theater.
7- Spending my birthday weekend at a farm house in upstate New York with some old friends.
8- Wandering around the beach after dinner.
9- Knitting the partners to two socks I have going- Treetop Socks and another pair of Tacky Halloween socks.
10- Going home to Philly at the end of July for my cousin’s wedding and some quality time with the family.
With all of that going on, I may not even make it to Canada, which was my goal for the summer.
