One thing I like about Vermont summers - you can go swimming during the day, and be wonderfully cool at night. Vermont is the only place I can imagine being comfortable in a bathing suit and fur coat at the same time (a fur coat would be a little bit of a faux pas for a veterinarian's wife, no? Luckily I'm not into sporting furry carcasses.)
The garden is blazing - swiss chard, spinach, arugula, and romaine are growing faster than we can keep up with. Early raspberries, cucumbers, and zucchinis have been detected. We threw a few scapes in our omelets tonight. Fray found blackberries while dribbling her new USA mini soccer ball in the backyard.
The Dogtor is building a chicken coop. We did manage to squeeze in a healthy bit of World Cup footage today - and are trying to figure out how we'll watch the hotly anticipated Germany v. Argentina match on Saturday (holy offense!!) ...because we'll be camping at Lake George with nine of our best friends. I am already advocating that we take the boat into town and find a television/vuvuzela...and then retreat back into the wilderness.
Now - signing off for night swimming...
