Because It’s Summer

The laundry piles high. Clean. Just waiting to get folded. But I have this beautiful laundry basket my Mother gave to me for Christmas. One to me and one for my sister. It makes the laundry look better and rather homey as it waits. The sun beats warm on the house peeking in the windows. [Read On]

Summertime Yellowy Lemon Wreath

  One of my friends’ daughters posted a picture of her beautiful lemon wreath on Instagram. I loved its bright cheerfulness. Soon after, I was moving the flowerpots around on my porch and simultaneously watering them and moving them some more. I’ve rearranged the porch a few times this summer. In part, because of wind [Read On]

In Which There Are Cute Clothes We Like

I liked this outfit my daughter put together and we ventured out one morning and I snapped pictures! We had fun with this Spring/Summer Style post over here. The hat is mine, but it looks much cuter on Renae. She’s been wearing it a lot. I bought it for our trip to Hatteras. I love hats, [Read On]

Yarn Along {Keep It Shut and Truck Jam and a Dishcloth, Of Course}

Progress on my dishcloth from last week! Yay for progress! I was going to highlight something of Renae’s, but didn’t get that done.

We Disk Ground

  When harvest is over and combines put away and days rolling on by, it’s time to bring out the tractor and the disk and start in working acres to prepare the soil and the fields to plant again. To work the dirt and kill the weeds and cut through the stubble. Everything has it’s [Read On]

Beautiful blooms! Brought to my door by a small neighbor girl with tiny blonde braids and a shy grin. I’ve been enjoying them and enjoying them.

Instapost { July No. 2}

    I have a lampshade in my living room. It’s making me laugh. Almost everytime I walk by it, there’s this part of me that goes, “I have a LAMPSHADE in my LIVING ROOM!!” With the same amount of wonder and amazement and drama and tone as Rapunzel in Tangled when she exclaims, “I [Read On]

It’s Harvest

  More wheat harvest. It’s such a big part of our lives. It’s harried and hurried in ways. There’s a sense of pressure to harvest the ripe crop before heavy rains or hail decide to show up. It’s beautiful. It’s tiring. It’s heartland of America. It’s blessing. It’s awe-inspiring. Those fields of grain producing from [Read On]

Cupcake Liner Flowers

I’ve had a stack of white paper cupcake liners for a long time that I’ve eyed and thought, “I should really do something with these, but what?” I have a couple of recipes I like to keep foil cupcake liners around for, because the cupcakes stick to the paper liners in an annoying way. The foil [Read On]

Bemusement and a Date Night

Back in the ending of May or the beginning of June, I jotted my thoughts and closed my notebook and promptly forgot as I’m apt to do and as that is a busy season for us, I gladly grab that excuse.  Recently, I reach for my notebook and randomly open it and read my words. [Read On]

In Which We Meet the Atlantic

  Kansas is a long ways from the Atlantic. But we’d packed and prepared and prayed and looked forward to departure with much anticipation and expectation. We’d flipped through honeymoon pictures and remembered and we mapquested and traced routes on a real map. We’d lined up pet-sitters and buttoned things at home up as best [Read On]

Instapost {July No.1}

A Tractor and a Sprayplane

  My farmer man was in the tractor and he was disking the small field right close to the house, giving me the opportunity to glance out my windows and see the tractor steadily working away. Presently, I heard another engine and after hearing it a time or two I stepped to the window once again [Read On]

Outside and On the Porch

I’m hoping to eventually have some plants along the south and back of our porch. I picked up a few at Wal-Mart right at the beginning of harvest. They were clearancing everything out, so I decided to snag a few and stick them in. I’m trying a couple of hydrangeas. Not sure how they’re going [Read On]

Blessed Be Thy Name Forever

  I waded out into the surf and I gazed across the rolling waves.

The Kind of Pictures You Really Don’t Want During Harvest

We were headed to the field with supper on a Friday evening during harvest.
