A Summer Sunday in our Life


Photobucket 
 I'm pleased to share a fairly typical Summer Sunday Day in the Life (DITL) of our little family. Weekends in the summer around here typically include gardening, baseball, time with friends and family, and of course, shared parenting. What does a summer day in your life look like?
  Photobucket
Delilah kicks off the day with a cold left-over pancake and some almond milk. 
She's in a bit of a nudist phase these days, but she let me talk her into underwear this morning.

  Photobucket 
 Still hungry and unwilling to wait for breakfast to be ready, she moves on to a banana.

  Photobucket 
 I make myself an iced coffee

. Photobucket 
Ty fixes Delilah a plate of more left-over breakfast items and chats with her while she eats it.

  Photobucket 
 I throw together a breakfast scramble with potatoes, garlic scapes, veggie sausage, and eggs.

  Photobucket 
 Mmmmm....grapefruit.

  Photobucket 
 At last, breakfast is served!

  Photobucket 
 After breakfast, I balance the check book.

  Photobucket 
 Here's me in all of my morning glory.

  Photobucket 
 I convince Delilah to throw a dress on and we head outside before it gets too hot.

  Photobucket 
 I water the veggies.

  Photobucket 
 Delilah wants to help.

  Photobucket 
 She hasn't exactly mastered the watering can yet, but neither of us care. :)

  Photobucket 
 This doesn't look like much at a glance, 
but buried underneath that grass and fur is a nest of baby bunnies. 
In my veggie garden. IN MY VEGGIE GARDEN.

  Photobucket 
 Which explains why this is the most lettuce I've seen.

  Photobucket 
 Time to add the kitchen compost to the tumbler.

  Photobucket 
 Compost-y Goodness. 

  Photobucket 
 Delilah picks up the kitchen compost bucket 
and I ask her to bring it back to the house. 
She says "No, that way."

  Photobucket 
 We head back inside and I lay down on the couch for a minute. 
Delilah snatches my camera and takes this self portrait.

  Photobucket 
 Then she brings me a glass of ice water.

. Photobucket 
 While we were busy outside, Ty was taking care of the dishes.

  Photobucket 
 Ty and Delilah folded some laundry while I showered.

  Photobucket 
 Ty and I found a home for our chest freezer. 
I've started working on a bit of food preservation and at last, we need the space.

  Photobucket 
 Bath time for Delilah.

  Photobucket 
 I'm all dressed and ready! 

  Photobucket 
Photobucket 
Photobucket 
 Lazy pets are lazy. Even with the AC on, it's a hot one.

  Photobucket 
 I fix myself a leftover vegetarian sloppy joe. Known affectionately in our house as a "sloppy joella".

  Photobucket 
 I make a sandwich and prepare some snacks to go for Delilah. 
We're heading out for my brother's baseball game.

  Photobucket 
 Time check! ;)

  Photobucket 
 We arrive at the field; my sister, niece, and mom are already settled in.

  Photobucket 
 My brother has an at-bat and gets on base.

  Photobucket 
 Harper awakes from her slumber and Delilah entertains her.

  Photobucket 
 My sister and I are very talented at making baby girls who look exactly like our husbands.

  Photobucket 
 My brother pitches.

  Photobucket 
 Delilah is always a bit starstruck by her uncle at his games. :)

  Photobucket 
 Delilah hanging with her Grandpa.

  Photobucket 
 After the game, we all head out for some frozen custard.

  Photobucket 
 Back at home, Ty takes Delilah downstairs to play while I nap on the couch for a bit.

  Photobucket 
 I awake to the sounds of her music making drifting upstairs.

  Photobucket 
 My friend Missy arrives with some garden goodies and a trap. 
I'm hoping to trap mama bunny and relocate her and her babies far away from my garden.

  Photobucket 
 Delilah snacks on some of the berries Missy brought us.

  Photobucket 
 Everyone in our household loves Missy. Even the furry four-legged family members.

  Photobucket 
 Because she does things like help us trap bunnies, and bring us produce, and pretty flowers. <3

  Photobucket 
 Too hot to cook, so dinner is leftover pasta and some of the broccoli Missy brought us.

  Photobucket 
 After a rare second bath of the day, it's time for a book and bed for Delilah.

  Photobucket 
 The chest freezer is sufficiently cold, so I start transferring some things to it.

  Photobucket 
 Then I stick the jam I made the night before in to freeze.

  Photobucket 
 Ty watches some TV and I work on posting 
the vegetarian sloppy joe recipe for Meatless Monday.

Photobucket 
 I clean and store the remaining goodies Missy brought. 

Photobucket 
 I snack on handful of grapes and read a lovely VBAC birth story a friend linked me to.

  Photobucket 

 At last, I climb into bed! Goodnight!
