  • Sunny fall days that are surprisingly warm too (that’s just bonus).
  • New friends.
  • New friends with new baby girls that I can give hand me down clothes to – I’ve already got an overflowing bag ready to go!
  • The ability to lift heavy things.
  • Finding the time to finally clean out the car or rather, making the time to clean out the car.  It’s like organizing one cabinet.  Since it’s a small area the work you do is super noticeable.  Love it!
  • The last of the summer squash from the garden.
  • Trying new recipes on this paleo diet we’ve adopted.  After almost a month there’s only been one real standout which isn’t good statistically but then again I’ve really made an effort to follow the recipe to a T which is so unlike me…
  • Listening to Jon laughing over something he’s watching on Netflix (he wears earphones since the girls are sleeping upstairs and he likes to feel what he watches, as I put it.  It’s nice to hear him laugh.
  • Discovering great new locally made products!
  • Deciding to go to bed early rather than do the dishes because this cold seems determined to get the upperhand!  Here’s hoping the dishwashing fairies are able to find their way to my house tonight…

That things are growing in my garden despite my cluelessness.

This growth spurt in my daughter’s vocabulary.

Summer time fruit.

The fawns and young bucks walking through our property.

How excited the baby get when she sees deer.

Watching a ballerina come to life when my daughter puts on her first pair of ballet slippers. – further proof that shoes are wonderful magical things…

My four year old consciously, without coercion, whining, or complaining just ate a vegetable.

The whole thing.

We were in the garden and I was showing her how the snow peas were growing (like overnight!) and she found one ready for picking, plucked it right off and into her mouth it went.

I’m a little in shock.

I wonder what she’ll do when the brussel sprouts are ready for harvest…

  • Watering the garden in my pajamas.
  • Socializing at the Sunday Farmer’s Market – who knew it was such a happen’in place?  Like I needed another reason to love going!
  • How my indoor cats are loving being outdoor cats.
  • Canning with mom this week.
  • I know I’ve said this before but I am this close to perfecting my bread recipe.  I’m really serious this time.
  • Lotion on my hands after a day in the yard.
  • Unloading my baby clothes on someone who could use them.
  • Smoothies with grapefruit, orange, lemon, apple, pear – so fresh tasting!
  • The four chrysalis’ we’ve found on the property.
  • Figuring out what we can eat that is growing wild on the property since the garden is turning out to be feeding more slugs than people.  So far:  fiddlehead ferns, huckleberries, nettles (yes!).

  • That my daughter met a new friend at the Farmer’s Market.  At four years of age they were, of course, instant best friends.
  • My husband is putting the baby to sleep more often.
  • Said baby isn’t hesitant to let us know her wants or not wants as the case may be.
  • Smiling faces upon waking since I am a grouch immediately upon waking.
  • Blossoms in the garden.
  • The excitement when an eagle is spotted on the property.
  • The young deer meeting up in front of our house and keeping away from the garden.
  • Finding a use for all the stinging nettles, a little late in season but I’m going to try cooking.  Apparently these area  powerhouse of nutrients and by golly I plan on making the most of this prolific weed as it’s growing more successfully than anything in my garden right now.
  • Bread baking tomorrow.
  • Canning next week when my mom visits for the week.  She was worried we wouldn’t have much to do – little does she know…!
