Here we are, we arrived at the last day of June! Where did June go? Summer is flying by and we have not had a chance to go outside and enjoy summer yet. This month has had every day filled with down pours of rain. I only remember one day that it did not rain, June 26. There could have been one or two at the beginning of the month. Last week remembering the weather reporter saying if we had 4 more inches of rain we would surpass the all time record for the month of June. The next day which was Saturday, we certainly did get the 4 inches they predicted. Since then we have had rain every day and this is Tuesday. Wow! It is pouring down as I write this. I know there are other parts of the US and the world who desperately need rain and I feel sorry for them. I have enjoyed watching the deer and their babies play by the lake. We had two sets of twins and another single birth this spring. One of the mothers puts her twins by our fence for me to watch over while she is getting a much needed break. Love the little critters and making sure the neighbor's dogs do not disturb them. I am so blessed living here and witnessing all the wonderful wild life who come through our yard to the lake. The deer can stop in to have a snack of cracked corn or if they like some bird seed. The apples on our trees will be ripe soon and they love to eat the ones on the ground. Soon the pears will be their sweet treat. You can always count on the deer to show up when they get the munchies. I have been filling orders and making a few dolls and bears to sell. Working in my wood shop is a favorite thing to do and I still have some benches and another boxed in corn trough for the deer to make. The deer need a dry place for their food. A large cupboard is in the plans for my materials. It is exciting to think about it! I hope you are having a nice summer and enjoying every little part of it. Have a Happy 4th of July! Love you all!
