Fun Summer Times

Sunday afternoon was pretty much the definition of summer. Olivia and I traversed the hill behind our house, picking a bucket-load of huckleberries and thimbleberries. Then, for dinner, Karina made huckleberry pancakes, with the huckleberries we had just picked.

You put up with a lot living here in Washington. A lot of rain, a lot of fog, a lot of cold, a lot of crazy folk, but it's days like that that make it worth it.

In other news, next week we're going camping up on Orcas Island, attending the Woodsong Arts and Music Festival. Three days of camping, listening to music (a lot good, some not so much, or so I'm told), meeting people and doing artsy crafty things. Our friends Lief and Anna go every year, and have invited us along this year. They say it's the best thing of the summer, so we're looking forward to it.
