After a couple of extremely busy weeks of work and summer activities I’m enjoying a rainy day for a change. It has reminded me to literally stop and smell the flowers. Summer always goes by too quick in Alberta and we try to fit in everything in a few short months. While I love the colour and textures found in gardening I have been so busy weeding and planting that I haven’t taken the time to sit back and actually enjoy it.
This has turned into the perfect morning of sitting in our cozy, not so perfect, living room with my kids and taking in the view to our yard and gardens while the kids inspect the bugs on our window trying to escape the rain.
