So much for a lazy summer…

Well, I dunno about you, but this was supposed to be a lazy summer for me.  More than a month in, and I’m realizing how not lazy it has been so far.

Since I have a tendency to ramble, I’ll keep it simple.  Here’s what I’ve been up to, in photos, since my last post:

Weekend at the lake with some of my favorite girlfriends…

Isn’t our little lake house the cutest thing ever?

Lots of baking, of course.  I veered a bit from my favorite artisan bread recipe to give this one another go.  It’s absolutely fantastic.  I also made this avocado pie once, and I’m sorry I don’t have a picture to show you.  I know you’d love it.

A couple of nights of roughing it with the entire family.  I’ll keep their mug shots private, so you only get the “kitchen table” for now.

Had some time to get my craft back on.  This will be bunting, for a big party that T and I are hosting this summer.  I got high expectations for it to come out great, but I’ve never made it before.

More party decorations!  When this is all finished up, I’ll post the finished product(s).

Happy 10 years to a very faithful friend, my trusty steed Stella.  She’s been back and forth across the country with me more than once and wears her mileage proudly.  {Why yes, I did take this picture while I was driving!}

Taking two summer intensive classes that start on Monday, so I had a ton of reading to do too.  The book on top was wonderful, about an emotionally disturbed child who comes to resolve his identity through a series of play therapy sessions.  The one underneath, meh, not much I haven’t heard already.

That’s pretty much it, as far as the busyness of my life goes these days.  But no rest for the weary, I tell ya!

Hope your hot days have been at least half as fun and twice as restful as mine have been.  Happy summer!
