Friday night at the Smythe house – time to light the tiki torches and grab some marshmallows.
With a good dose of woodsmoke and plenty of bug spray, we’re able to push back the mosquitoes long enough to enjoy some quality time in the backyard.
This is one of my favorite ways to pass an evening. Loads of fireflies. Often some bats. And a sprinkling of stars.
By the end of the evening, we’re all pleasantly sleepy and our clothes have that nice bug spray/woodsmoke smell that always makes me think of camping. It’s funny how smells can trigger memories. I told CPT America I wished someone would make a candle with “campfire” scent. It would smell like woodsmoke and citronella and marshmallow all rolled up into one. I would burn that candle all the time.
From the dining room table, getting ready to watch the rest of the pollinators documentary because we weren’t able to finish it all the first night,
