I like summer because the flowers are blooming and beautiful. I try to find a flower garden or botanical center if some sort to visit that is new to me. Last year was Lily Acres, not too far from me with so many kinds of lilies I had never seen before. It was a fun day.

My favorite part of summer is camping in the Smoky Mountains. Won’t be going this year. All Boy Scout camps are either cancelled or virtual camps. I am going to miss the fairs this summer too. All 4-H fairs are going virtual too. It will be interesting to judge the kids’ projects from photos taken and uploaded. I have made and donated almost 1,500 masks to our community. Just showing my kids what community service is.

Road trips with picnics and camping are my favorite summer activities each year; although, this year, we won’t be doing any traveling, and our picnics are in our own back yard. But that’s okay. Everyday is a blessed day, whether home or away. God bless everyone with health and happy stitching.
