Idyllic Afternoon

Aaah, summer — that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It's a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.
~Darell Hammond


Sharing an idyllic afternoon...

It's been too long since I participated in Mary's Mosaic Monday, hope to revisit my friends and perhaps find some new ones.

  10. First of all, I love that quote. I did all of those things in the summer in my youth. Why do we stop doing those things?

  11. oops... I guess if I start with "First of all", I need to at least give a "second of all".

    Second of all, I am really enjoying seeing summer through your Grand's eyes.

  22. Such sweet summer images of the wee fisherman, Vee. And I was just thinking about you, thinking I should coax you into starting up some Downton Discussion again. Are you really expecting that we can wait until next January? You could just make it a weekly free-for-all. Oh well, I figured it was worth a try. :-) Have a lovely summer day!

  24. It's good to see that your grands are among the kids who enjoy the outdoors Vee. I can't help but notice how few children I see playing outside anymore. It's a lost art. They are lucky children to have that fun time outside!
