My friend Laura is on vacation with her family this week, so I'm watering her garden for her, in exchange for all the fresh raspberries the girls and I can pick.
It's 99 degrees here with a dew point of 70, and the mosquitoes are so bad that we have to pick berries in long sleeves, pants, and hats or hoodies. And yet, it's still worth it.
In the afternoons, we head to the pool, along with the rest of our town.
The essence of summer in Minnesota, right there.
