Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

it's that time...



Join me for a walk around the farm this week, I'm feeling very...



goldenrod in bloom...the last big hurrah for honeybee winter food storage



hot sun streaming down on the fields...



garden bounty ready to become homemade pasta sauce...



the juiciest, sweetest pears...our first big harvest from this tree!



apples...ready for apple butter!



lovely blooms...these will dry beautifully



the crunch of leaves underfoot...



and the true sign of harvest time!




The soybeans are in...the fields are strangely empty. And while the corn isn't quite ready yet, it won't be long. With days and days of temperatures hitting 90 degrees, I'm looking forward to a break in the weather...a break the local news has promised will be coming tomorrow!

Like so many of you, we're on the doorstep of my favorite time of year; Fall! A time of harvest moons, crisp apple cider, the scent of woodsmoke, and sweater weather! October will bring more Farm Flicks (bonfires, hayrides, and outdoor movies) with friends, along with a Glamping night with best girlfriends (we call ourselves the Domestic Goddesses!)

Ahhh, a time of busyness, but a time to feel oh-so...

superheroes!


The world is filled with images of superheroes right now...

Captain America, Ironman, Spiderman, but here's something to think about...






Moms, you are heroes...and what you do matters! I love this quote from Susan Branch...


"You need to know that you are the fairies that run ahead
and make everything magical,
because you know that even the smallest of things can be special.
And you need to know that what you do is nothing short of heroic."


Hats off to Pink Tractor for sharing this photo with the world...enough said!
