Early summer is a time of hard work, but we have had a bit of respite. A barbecue and a baseball game give respite during this time of labor. The garden has just begun to produce peas. There's still planting, and weeding and nurturing. Then, there's the children and the house. At some point, there's ironing, and projects and baking all awaiting attention. Whoever spoke of the "lazy days of summer, " was not a mother of young children.
