rub a dub dub

Nothing like a cool bath after a long day in the sun.

Amidst all the summertime play, my mind often wanders to the coming months and all of the necessary preparations that need taking care of before our cold, long winter.
Especially with the rising price of gas, it is now more important than ever for us to severe our dependence on commoditized foods and start growing our own.
This year has been my first attempt at gardening, and I must say, I love it! It is so much work, and the bugs are relentless, but so very rewarding.  Henry has been helping with the strawberry picking, the jam making, the basil picking, the pesto making, the weeding, the getting dirty, and everything in between.
It is really important for us to introduce Mother Earth to Henry at an early age, and avoid nature deficiency disorder at all costs. And I am so happy that he seems to absolutely thrive outdoors. As far as I am concerned, his love for sand, grass and dirt will forever be nurtured.

summer lovin

Summer time in Quebec is so wonderful, and so fleeting. The seasons are so drastic and change so fast, that we are trying to really enjoy ourselves and spending as much time as we can outside, appreciating Mother Natures gifts. Henry and I have been heading to the beach most days. Frolicking around in the waves, making sand castles, and fully enjoying the precious moments of warm weather and sunshine.
