wednesday sandlot

we are loving sandlot baseball
such a great mix of kids
and some seriously good coaching
{dad, you would love the coach}

first, our dreamy soccer league
and now this, we are getting spoiled.

thank you, virgi!
you are the one who told us about
both soccer & sandlot baseball.

in love with summer

in love with these
{the smell... the taste... that we can just pick them whenever}

in love with eating outside
{salad with black bean burger & fried sage leaves}

in love with our csa
{this week's share has green beans!}

i'm having the best summer in several years.
i am usually sick of the heat & ready for fall.
not this summer.
i don't want it to end.

two inventions from yesterday

1. my macguyver move to save our boat
when we discovered it was missing an air plug.
i found a black balloon on the ground, 
stuck it in the hole, blew it up, 
tied it to the rope that went around the boat
so it wouldn't fall inside, then inflated the boat.
it held for most of the trip,
until i started towing the girls
while they held onto the rope.

2. a really long straw made by emily

{we've known him since he was little}

good stuff at mrs. meyer's

i love mrs. meyer's.
{and this is not a sponsored post}
i have found that this works for
nearly everything i need to clean.
i dilute it in a spray bottle and use it for:
window, mirrors, floors, counters,
even toilets.
it smells like roses.

basil & lavender are my favorites.

i'm happy to see mrs. meyer's in stores
like target and walmart and winco.
that tells me that folks are catching on.

they have a new video series called
featuring individuals who are creating
community and connectedness to the earth.
see all three videos here.

there is also a giveaway that you should enter:
{last day to enter is july 21}
