August Days

"The sprinkler twirls.
The summer wanes.
The pavement wears
Popsicle stains.

The playground grass
Is worn to dust.
The weary swings
Creak, creak with rust.

The trees are bored
With being green.
Some people leave
The local scene

And go to seaside
And take off nearly
All their clothes."

A poem by John Updike

The lazy and warm days of August are upon us. One of my favorite things about this summer time month is going to my local farmer's market and stocking up on all the delicious fresh fruits, veggies and meats it has to offer!! Mmmm...imagine swinging on your front porch swing as the sun goes down and enjoying some fresh strawberries, blueberries, and watermelon along with a healthy serving of whipped cream...

So, granted, these aren't real pieces of fruit but they are just as scrumptious! Wooly Knits N Bits makes these super fun fruit hats, perfect for little boys or girls. The super soft feel of these hats and the round design are just right for a comfortable fit on baby's head!

The summer is quickly slipping from our grip so let's enjoy what's left of the warmth on our skin and the sunshine's glow on our face!
