Embrace Summer

We froze corn on Friday morning.
Friday evening this squirrel was feasting on the discarded cobs.

I encourage you...and myself
to embrace all the fun of Summer while we have it.
Just as that squirrel embraces this corn cob.

Moments later he was running up the tree with this 
corn in his mouth.
That was a sight.
I'm sorry I missed it with the camera.

My favorites:

Eating fresh corn.
Grilling on the deck.
Waiting anxiously for Autumn.  
Sorry, its true.
Watching butterflies flit and float all over the yard.
Watching the cows meander in the field across the street.
Visiting the roadside stands for fresh veggies.
Coming in from the heat of the day into the coolness
of the air conditioned house.
Ooooh, I nearly forgot....Watermelon!
It is delicious!

We are enjoying this amazing August weather! We are doing peaches today! Hurray for Red Haven peaches!

Maybe we'll get some corn frozen when I get back!

So with on this. Had blueberries tonight and realized fresh blueberries are a fleeting pleasure of the season. Though I am eager for the new apple crop...but holding back while there are berries and corn and all the joys of August!
