The World of Summer Break

Summer break has solidly arrived, paired nicely with warm & rising temps, bugs and blooming flowers. Days have grown longer, though oddly have seemed to pass with swift velocity. We are already at the 22nd of June – how?

A pair of garage sale days, then the annual cabin trip up to the Park Rapids area from the 15th to 18th swept away many of the days. The other days have been with ample over-planning for the coming puppy (x-ray tomorrow, puppies arrive the 27th or 28th EEEEEEEEK!) as well as managing the exuberant growth of weeds and the garden. Plants have been added along with future plans for a produce garden (the fencing ought to be up this summer, but planting may not being until next year.)

Wednesdays and Saturdays are plasma donation days, with ever other Saturday spent slinging Atomic Collars at the MPLS Pet Market at Unleashed Hounds and Hops. 

Did I mention the overzealous puppy planning? (This morning I charted out rough age for each of the upcoming holidays starting in September and outlined some guidelines to follow for each holiday – no handouts from the table mom!)

Projects to be completed throughout the summer: the produce garden, a “built in” cabinet that will house the puppy’s crate, another garage sale, basement organization and puppy proofing the house. There’s a monstrous side garden to move and a massive amount of mulch needed to “finish” the gardens along the other fence. And grass removal from the gardens… man my dislike for grass is high!

July marks the 4th with fireworks viewed from our side yard. A few weeks pass and my sister is getting married to a lovely lady on July 16th. I’ll be photographing her wedding! The rest of the month will be spent in lounge or exploring some less frequented areas for new photography locations (if your dog wants to be a model, get in touch with me!). The MPLS Pet Market will continue Saturdays into August with Atomic Collars & other vendors, and plasma will continue to be cranked out on Wednesdays & Saturdays. 

July moves into August with my birthday on the 9th. The puppy arrives at the end of August and school starts back up for my mom at the same time. School starting marks the end of summer but also the beginning of life with the puppy! 

What are your plans for this summer break season?
