Moments from the Week

We went from this, this past Saturday


shorts and hot, hot weather!
(every season, though,  is firewood  gathering season around here)

 Our dandelions are just about gone, but next year we are going to make dandelion wine like Lisa made.

Mike and I celebrated 21 years of marriage.

Planting continues - potatoes, beans, summer squash, dill, basil and sunflower seeds. 

Girl Scout cookies sent up from Poppa.

So much goodness and fullness.


  1. Happy Anniversary!!! :)

    Beautiful photos! Every season is wood-gathering season for us too! :)

    Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I'm looking out the window at blue skies and just praying that it stays this way. We haven't had snow for awhile but rain and COLD. Today I'll put in the tomatoes and keep my fingers crossed! :)

    Blessings, Debbie

  3. Wasn't it a crazy couple of weeks? We had our pellet stove running last weekend and this weekend is in the 90's and humid! I want to try either dandelion wine or jelly next year with our dandies. Happy belated Anniversary!!

  4. Happy Anniversary Tonya! I hope you guys had a wonderful time with many more wonderful years to come!
    Hugs, Rachel

  5. That last picture says it all....Living the good life! :) So much good can come from Dandelions,and they are despised by so many....they work so hard to make their lawns free of them. They have no idea what they are missing.......blessings

  6. Congratulations on 21 years! That is wonderful and so inspiring in a world that attempts to destroy marriage at every turn. So glad you are planting! I can't wait to see what comes out of your garden. :)

  7. Beautiful! I've been appreciating the sun myself up here in BC

  8. I heard about that snow where you are! we have had wacky weather to be sure, but we did not get the snow. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Love, Mel

  9. Funny, our weather (french alps) has done pretty much the same thing over the past 7 days!
    Have you made homemade wine before? I'm planning on trying it next year also. I'm currently scouting around the markets and car boot sales for all the necessary equipment.
    Happy Wedding Anniversary.

  10. Happy Anniversary! That's awesome. :)
