summer so far

we picture {this}




water splash action....

new friends being born in our home....

farm fresh eggs, pumpkin I froze last year from the garden....

precious baking helpers....


warm moist goodness...

There is so much happening around here and nothing at the same time. Children at various day and overnight camps, friends over, swimming, keeping the house up, healing a re-strained knee, getting down to the pile of clothes needing sewing repairs. Braveheart caught a nasty virus that really knocked his socks off. He is getting so much better but he still so weak and gets so tired. I think he may have lost weight from this one. My man and I would really like to see him put some more meat on his bones. I am trying, as always, to fill him up with good foods like chicken soup, grass fed beef with all the fixin's, organic fruits, veggies, homemade pumpkin muffins and rhubarb cake with dark raw sugar if he is going to have sugar. Yummy. He doesn't have much of an appetite right now.

I am thinking of you, and Braveheart, too. Those pumpkin muffins look gorgeous, I must have a go. Are they easy to make?

Hey! I finally got S on an antibiotic. I need him well for our vacation. I will call after the holiday weekend. We are praying for healing.

I wish I could just live at your house all summer. I am missing all of you when I have to work so much. The kids are staying cool! Gram

My sister sent us the exact same slip n' slide. When the box came I knew I had seen it somewhere! Sure looks like yours enjoyed it much.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
