Last day...

...of the summer holidays today. Oh, how I've loved these holidays and I'm really going to miss them. Especially the lazy starts to the day. Staying in our pyjamas til noon before heading to the beach. Buying up apricots, cherries and blueberries from roadside stalls along the way. Making delicious fruit smoothies (with illicit greens) when we return. Gardening and craft in the afternoon and staying up way too late.

The veggie garden is insane at the the moment. Almost more zucchinis, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes than we can eat. We marvel at the corn and beans that seem to grow by the minute and at the towering sunflowers scattered through the garden. The blackberries have started to ripen and strawberries just keep on coming.

Tomorrow, Elsa is back at school and Hugo starts pre kinder. One day a week. I don't think I'm ready. Oh boy...
It's been a magic summer, not without its low points, but right now, I'm feeling happy remembering these perfect summer moments. On the last day, still in my pyjamas.
