Every Day is Made of Moments

I wish I could carry you in my pocket as I go about my day.

There are so many moments that I would share with you.
So many smiles.

But since I cannot do that, I carry my camera and snap as many photos as I can...
hoping to capture the essence of each and every day.

 Yesterday was as perfect a day as one could ask for.

Sunny, blue skies, cool temperatures...
everyone was happy.

All of the animals are so much happier when it is just a little cool outside.
 And honestly, so am I!

There's nothing sweeter than a pig's head in your lap!'s what afternoons were made for!

Making friends through the fence.

Too tired to even hold her head up!

There's nothing like a bunch of awkward adolescents.

"You think I look bad, you should see yourself!"

We have a visitor for a week...
Sammy #2...
Andy and Ashley's dog.
(Andy and Ashley are last summer's newlyweds and are pregnant with
my first granddaughter...due mid-August.)

All four of the dogs get along well.
We'll have lots of adventures this coming week with Sammy #2.

(Whispering, because I don't want to jinx myself....)
These two turkey boys have been putting themselves to bed for the past month.
It's so nice to not have to walk the turkeys back home every evening...
they walk themselves home!

It's a wonderful time of year on the farm...
perhaps the best part of the year.
The world is teeming with life...

The chore list is gradually getting smaller.
And as each item gets crossed off the list,
the farm looks just a little better.
It's going to be a beautiful summer!

Happy Friday, friend.
I hope your weekend is perfect!

PS...I was asked yesterday about the grapevine that grows on my garden fence...
It is a Concord grape vine.
It is located at the lowest end of the garden, and so it gets plenty of moisture.
As for care...I know that I am supposed to prune it...
However I have found that this vine thrives on neglect.


  1. I wish I could be in your pocket on the farm to . I would love to visit your farm every day and cuddle the animals and help around with the chores you do a wonderful job making us feel like we are there with you through your posts and photos and I thank you for that ! I do miss all that even mucking out stalls I miss but I have a farm of my own her that I love to and that is a wild life farm with all our birds and critters we get here in our yard and valley and I love every minuet of it ! Lovely photos , thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  2. you sure have a lot of critters! i neglect my grapes too. a granddaughter! you are so lucky!

  3. I would love to spend the day with you but I'm afraid I couldn't keep up. Your days are very jampacked! The farm shows all your loving care as do the animals. Have a happy weekend.

  4. Thank you for the grape info and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the turkey boys will continue with their sudden ability to tuck themselves in!

  5. How many would love to be your neighbor and each share time with you. My hands up.

    Never a dull moment at your farm with all your farm animals. The horses are beautiful. Maybe they are Shelton's. What do I know. Oh you wee little chickens. Your cat is beautiful looking. Your lambs. You have a lot of chores to do. For sure. Happy Friday!

  6. I would live to be in your picket but this is second best.
    Love your photos and your happiness!

  7. What a wonderful place to be.
    Congrats on your first granddaughter! So many great things going on there. You enjoy it.

  8. Granddaughters are the BOMB! However, I only have one grandchild. A grandson would most certainly be wonderful too. Grandchildren are (((sigh))).
    It is nice to sit with the animals. I have a lawn chair in the barn to bring out when I feel like resting my mind. I plunk it in the pasture and the donkeys envelope me. My chickens will come out and sit in my lap like little dogs.
    (whispering) Congratulations on the turkey boys coming home of their own volition.
