When Life Gives You Lemons ... Make Cookies!


a sick little one
a hot stormy afternoon
the end of a ten hour work day
a tired mama ... 29 weeks pregnant
a craving for something sweet and healthy 
a pinterest recipe for paleo lemon cookies
a hubby headed home, willing to stop and buy lemons









leftovers
watermelon
lemon cookies
bath time for girlies
early bedtime for all of us
a good ending to a long day

{this moment} - A Friday ritual, inspired by SouleMama, capturing a moment from the week.  A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Late July in the Garden


"In every gardener there is a child who believes in The Seed Fairy" 
~Robert Brault

The children look forward to the weekly Garden Visits!
The run off to wait by the tree line for us to catch up.


Each week there are new things to see and taste.

onions drying




  cucumbers

 


tomatoes of all sizes





melons



 and several varieties of squash





  corn





 
  "I tied these together to make a hammock for the fairies"


the eggplant has yet to bloom...


beans in various stages


and peanuts (we hope!) 


today the children ate carrots, cucumbers, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, rhubarb, 
and raw corn on the cob!



"Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden."
