The longest day of the year. I remember Summer Solstices when I was a kid, staying up late, reading in bed well past my bedtime. It was a gorgeous evening here. Big two running around in their underwear looking for ripe strawberries. I was nursing a fussy baby while weeding the carrots. Sweet fussy baby calmed right down in her new to us (free!) swing. Then a James Herriot marathon book reading session. Now I'm enjoying a summer snack of crackers, cream cheese, topped with fresh homemade jam. Summer has officially begun. It's going to be a good one!
