day twenty one

The summer harvest has come to Minnesota. Everything is ripe and abundant. I love how this vendor at the Farmer's Market is thoughtfully shining up his tomatoes before putting them out for sale. I watched him for a few minutes as I admired these flowers.

I don't spend much time these days with children, but this afternoon I joined Tammy and Laura to create some personal vision boards using magazine images + words. Laura has a little boy named Carlo. He's precious. We read a book together after dinner and he was making amazing connections. There's a small yellow circle in the book that I pointed at a few times, then he started pointing at it, then at a round button on his shirt. At first I thought it was a coincidence, but he did it three more times! He's just over a year old - amazing! Maybe this is common for little ones, I'm not sure. He also signed "more" after I'd finish reading so I read it again. I was in awe of him and the family that surrounds him. What a treasure.
