summer-more's


I'm so glad the summer didn't go by without the chance to enjoy a few smores 'round the ol' camp fire.
It was one of the things I wanted to do this year.
Let lulu experience the pure yumminess of roasting marshmallows on a pseudo campfire-or at least a contained version in the back yard.
I had been promising her all summer long that we would do this and she wasn't about to let me forget.
We had a bunch of people over from the neighbourhood and got roasting.
The adults got a little roasted themselves...
hmm. alcohol seems to be a bit of a theme over the last few lingering weeks of summer...
after everyone left and the kids were all nestled in nicely in their sugar induced slumbers, big daddy and I got to sit back and enjoy the flickering of the flames and look up to the perfect summer night sky.
There are times when I feel so grateful for everything, and some days it's easy to forget all the amazing things in our lives.
tonight was not one of those nights.
gratitude.
100%.
I'm hoping we can enjoy a few more fires before we can't be bothered and decide to have them inside instead.
These next few weeks are busy ones.
As I watch the squirrels frantically burying nuts in our yard (and in my cast iron planters..little f-er's), I realize I'm really not that different from the little critters.
Trying to squeeze as much in during the next few weeks, knowing that just around the corner things will take on a different pace, the weather will shift and I may not be feeling quite as ambitious.
then again, who knows?
I do know that I hope the sun keeps shining just a little bit longer, and the green hangs on for a few more weeks.
Or at least until I get a chance to eat just one more smore's or at least just the chocolate part- and cross a few more things off of the Summer To Do List.

Mmm... I don't remember the last time I had a s'more. Ages ago. Glad you guys were able to partake in some yumminess.

I have to say I'm a bit jealous... I miss those lovely end of summer weekends. Not quite the same down here in the south. Still 95 degree days, as a matter of fact. Yuck.

We tried out the new outdoor tapas lounge next to Joy bistro last night (Queen & Logan) and guess what! There are smores on the menu!

Would you believe I've never had a s'more?
