How To Know It Is Summer...

Today is my official "first day of summer break" and I can already tell you how I know, even without looking at the calendar:

10. I ate breakfast in my jammies.
9.  Wookie didn't call for me until 6 instead of 5 a.m.
8.  I am still in my jammies.
7.  There is a list of errands THIS LONG to accomplish today.
6.  I am still in my jammies.
5.  There is a chicken in the fridge thawing for the Mister's supper. For the last two weeks, he has eaten ham sandwiches.
4. There was only one lunch to pack today.
3. I have 320 bruises from working in the yard yesterday.
2. I have poison ivy on my feet from going barefoot and on my arms from picking up hay.
1. A bee stung me on the top of my head while I was in the garden and the Mister was changing supers. Really.

Even though it looks like rain today, I am doing my happy dance. I haven't stayed home and not worked in the summer for 15 years. Yeah. It is going to be good...


  1. One of the joys of being my own boss is that I can remain in my nightie for a good portion of the morning. Unfortunately, sometimes I get caught by an early visitor. Very embarrassing!

  2. Enjoy your summer break! Can't wait to follow your Lazy Bee Farm adventures! (-:

  3. A bee stung you on the TOP of your head!!!

    Enjoy your summer break!


  4. For once, I wasn't wearing a hat, Manuela, and the little girl caught caught in my hair when the wind blew. We were both surprised; we were both very unhappy!

    Jane, my postal carrier knows if it is 9 a.m. and I am still home, I am in my jammies. We have come to an understanding. I don't answer the door if the inspector is with her; she doesn't laugh.

    If yesterday is any indication of what this summer is going to be like, it is going to be fabulous!

    Thanks, ladies! I will!

  5. It sounds like an int'resting start to your summer! Well maybe except for the poison ivy and the bee sting.

    Wishing you many happy days ahead.......


Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
