joy in june -- a summer solstice joy list

  • rain changing to blue skies and sunshine
  • a long walk with the dogs
  • mixing paint and starting a new painting
  • finding a four-leaf clover
  • introducing my friend, Danielle, to the chickens (and all the other farm fun)
  • eating the first ripe (or semi-ripe) cherries in the orchard
  • flowers, flowers, flowers
  • harvesting strawberries
  • my dad's "blind beer taste tests"
  • finding shapes in the clouds
  • bbq dinner
  • baby birds fledging from their nest on the front porch at the farm (right over our heads!)
  • frogs and toads
  • measuring the corn in the field -- it's up to my waist now
  • a meadow walk in golden evening light -- picking daisies and eating wild strawberries
  • strawberries and ice cream
  • mystery roses at the farm (that came home with me)
