It's time for the July Here & Now post as part of the new monthly link-up hosted by Sarah of Say! Little Hen. You can find this month's links in the July Here & Now at Say! Little Hen. Since we're sharing our Here & Now (a touch early) in lieu of a garden week recap, here are some frosty photos of our chilly winter garden after this week's first frost. I know that many of our readers are sweltering through the northern summer, so hopefully this give you a little bit of a virtual cool down. I am currently:
Loving // Warm winter woolies.
Eating // Winter comfort food...and way too much of it! :)
Drinking // Plenty of coffee and hot lemon, ginger, and honey.
Feeling // Accomplished after finally getting a spell of dry weather and tackling the war of the weeds.
Making // Reusable produce bags to go with my new fabric grocery bags. Details soon.
Thinking // How surreal it sometimes feel to live somewhere where I can still grow fruit, veggies, and flowers in the dead of winter.
Dreaming // Of the return to longer days. I don't really mind the cool weather, but I do dislike starting my day in chilly darkness.
Since last month's Here & Now, we FINALLY got to try the mandarins and the first lemons are ready to be sampled as well. Hooray for winter citrus! I must also confess that although I am loving my warm winter woolies, I am still not yet knitting my own. Someday, perhaps. I have been busy sewing up a storm recently, which is keeping my crafting time very occupied.
