I just love this series of pics.  They are over a span of time.  I just kept looking outside as I was going about kitchen chores.  This dog really is their very best pillow ever. May today include snuggles with those who you love dearly.


Bringing in the flowers...I always say fresh flowers make a house a home.

Garden Update 2016: #1

Gardening 2016. 

Yes, we've started.  Some seedlings are coming, smaller than I'd like since we started them later than I was hoping.  Nevertheless. They are started.  My husband tilled (Which don't let him convince you he did last year....last year it was all me!!! But thankful for his help this year). Peas have been planted.  Parsnips, collard greens and green onions are plentiful. Starting a 'halves' offer here for locals...come pick and leave me half of what you pick.  Hoping to have less waste and share more.  We'll see how it goes.  Also, I can see the mint is going to drive me absolutely crazy this year. 

But...we're started.  12 pounds of produce brought in already...off to a good start.  Hoping to meet/beat last year's total of >700lbs.






Neighborhood Party

Last weekend, as I was taking my dogs for a run, I was stopped by a couple looking for a specific field.  I told them where to go and they shared that they were going to watch draft horses plow. 

Now, we were not invited to this party, but I went home and told my kids to get dressed. I figured we could just pop over and see what was going on.

However, my kids had another plan. We were there hours upon hours.  My kids were the only kids, but that didn't bother them.  Adrian shooting the breeze with the farmers. They all fed him, let him help and try things out.  He loves 'talkin' farmin' ' so he says.  And Audra was content running around and getting cookies from some of her fave neighbors. 

The funniest moment to me was when Adrian walked up to this one team and said "Those look more like donkeys than horses".  The guys said "They're mules".  Adrian said "Oh, that means the mom is a horse and the dad is a donkey.  Haven't seen one of those before."  That kid...

I took too many pictures, but I cannot delete  because it was really the most beautiful day and wonderful time. So thankful for those neighbors who didn't kick us out when we crashed their party!
