Summer countdown

Here in Minnesota we had a very late start to summer and it feels like we are a month behind to where we should be.

Not to be a Debby Downer but once it is the 4th of July you blink and it is Labor Day weekend. But honestly that is still 8 weeks away so there is still lots of time to enjoy this........

And this........

Before going back to this.......

But then I am thinking maybe we should fly off to Mexico in February when it's -10 here and sip tropical drinks on some beautiful beach and then come back to three more months of.........

Well you get my point.




  1. Beautiful photos! So happy to "meet" another long-distance grandma. I'm from Minnesota, too... years and years ago. You should come join today's GRAND Social linky just for grandparents on my site today — share your links and make some new grandma friends. I'd love for them to meet you and vice versa!

  2. Ok, I totally love your pictures except the snow one, lol, I HATE COLD WEATHER! I live in Virginia, and it took forever this year for Summer to actually arrive, and then...we end up having torrential rain storms....not fun. I do love free water though for the gardens and my plants, because I pay that bill, lol! So excited to "meet" other grandma's that blog! It is awesome that I accidentally found Grandma's Briefs through Pinterest, while pinning a recipe, and now I have found the Grand Social which led me to many Grandma bloggers!

  3. Your pictures are wonderful and I know exactly what you mean. Having grown up in Michigan there aren't really 4 seasons --- there are 2 -- hot and cold! So glad I moved to southern California. Thanks for sharing! Just stopping by from the GRAND Social Linky Party, hope you get a chance to do the same.
