welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

Friday, June 10

the fruits of our labor...

A small apple forms...


Blossoms will become blackberries...
Flowers in bloom...
Irresistible sweet treats...
Random photos indeed, but they make me smile.

A cool morning has me pondering what I want to be
"when I grow up" and asking if I'm on my way.
This quote comes to mind...

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.

You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go....

Dr. Seuss, Oh! The Places You'll Go!


Goals I had for this year:
   Fruit trees...check
   Berry bushes...check
   Chickens...check

Practical goals...
good goals...

However; school's out, and I get teary...the kids are growing too fast. So, with a clear head, what's my most important goal?   

Slowing down to enjoy every moment. One of my favorite hymns reminds me that "time flies on wings of lightning, we cannot call it back...and if we are not mindful the chance will fade away, for life is quick in passing, 'tis as a single day."

Today's agenda? Sure, some practical things like grocery shopping and laundry, but also playing in the tent and heading out for a hot air balloon festival tonight. I want to hear laughter and see smiles...it's all in a day's "work!"
