Summer is in full bloom. We've not yet entered the dry season and we've only had one day reach 90 degrees. My plants are doing well, although, I did not plant as much as last year. That is OK. I chose to spend my money on adding another rescue cat in March and he is worth it.
That's how life goes on a budget. I took from my garden budget so that I could increase my cat budget. I still have lovely plants to enjoy. And I have an extra wonderful cat to love.
I really, really need to work on clearing out the extra stuff in our home this summer. In particular, the garage is out of control. I just don't like spending time out there. I need a plan and a schedule, but books call to me during the heat of the day, not a hot garage.
I am so thankful to have the luxury of summer days at home. They are a real gift. I have my children happily busy around me. My husband is working hard so that we can be comfortable and enjoy all the blessings that surround us. Life is full. I am grateful to the Lord for the pleasure a quiet summer day brings.
