sweet~tooth

i don't really have much of a sweet~tooth. but everyone
likes something sweet once in a while.
i discovered this company online, took the plunge,
and ordered some very unusual marshmallows.

240sweet gourmet artisan marshmallows.
i served them after for dessert after our meal at dinnertime.
i kinda got some funny looks around the table that night.
but one little giddy girl couldn't wait for dinner to be over to
take a bite of something she had never seen before.

i have to say it was delicious. i think maybe i will even try to
roast one of these over an open fire...next time.

it is fun to try new things in the summertime.

summer days...reveled

they are full of sunshine...lazy moments....fresh flowers.

we have celebrated holidays & birthdays.




watched our grand~baby garnet's first year fly by.


there have been bike riding days, fostering dogs days
until they could find their forever homes.

barrett, fiona, and sammy.
one thing about these days is there is never enough time.
we have harvested many different times.

we have added four sheep to the farm.

enjoyed beautiful blooms...

herbs and lettuces.
been blessed with volunteer flowers that packed a punch.


eaten from the garden.



had our girl times.

spent camp weeks at kid on stage.

enjoyed the firepit.


wore our hair up...

and let our hair down.
spent time with friends.



and family.


time with our babies.
we have had traveling days.

tye~dying times.

puppy days.

watched sunrises....


sunsets.








we have had our share of bar ~ b ~ que and wine.



we have eaten al fresco, eaten out and eaten in.



spent saturday mornings at the farmers market.

getting amazing things to eat.


enjoyed sunflowers.

... dill blooming.

comos and skippers.

observed the tendrils of watermelon.

saw our veggie garden in full tilt.


took in countless blooms.




relished in the the eibles from the garden.










i love summer days.
