Summer Solstice

Happy Summer Solstice! I think spring thought is was summer all along, but now the season has caught up to the warm weather!

Sunday evening we hosted another fire and dinner to welcome the long days getting shorter. This time i laid out old tapestries (my go-to beach collection) around the fire-pit early in the afternoon for our dinner. And as the sun set and the heat settled we lit a nice fire! From the backdoor of the house looking out into the yard you could see a sea of strangers and friends sitting and talking quietly as guitars were passed around for some ambient jamming. I think the tapestries and blanket were perfect for a Sunday evening affair, sitting instead of standing made the event so peaceful compared to a few rowdy house parties in the past. Hey, they all have their moments, but this nice was lovely.

for our undocumented feast, Anthony smoked a roast, and we made beet burgers for the veggie crowed, beat-meat. I also made a cilantro lime coleslaw garnished with nasturtium blossoms from Anthony's garden. Happy bellies.
