Not a Summer Day

We had the first dramatic storm of the summer. Lightening and huge immediate claps of thunder are not Henry's favorite things. He was more than ready to take both on, but I talked him out of it.

Greg and I had fingers crossed that the trees around the house would not take a hit. They didn't, but when the weather clears enough we will take Henry in an explore to see what did get struck.

So we are inside today - with quick trips out to cut wood. The kitchen ceiling is nearly finished - we just need to do wood fill and seal. Yay for rainy days!

Oh, and if you are a plant person I have a question for you. The beautiful little pink and delicately scented flower is at a neighbors house. The bush is about ten feet tall and covered with these flowers. Later in the summer it is just leaves. Do you know what it is? I am sure Henry would love to have one down by the lake!


  1. Ceiling looks great!

    We don't know much about flowers.
