We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  ~Thornton Wilder

This week's treasures include:
 -- Harvesting... more to come!
 -- Sharing a little watermelon after a late dinner with these marvelous friends/neighbors.

 -- Why not take a run through the sprinkler in your pj's after doing chicken chores?
 -- Chickens and their gracious eggs.

 -- Last year, this tree gave us hmmmm, six? apples. This year... Woot!!
 -- These two sharing a snack after a bike ride.
 -- Despite the lack of sun in the garden, our kale harvest has been non-stop!

 -- "Wear Ema's gloves"
-- To know and love this little dreamer.

What are you treasuring this week?
