(these [Nine] Moments)

Yes, once again... a little bit of Thursday for Friday! 

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

 A walk up to the grocery store: leads to an impromptu play date among the curly hairs!
 Everbearing Strawberries: and our daily visits to the patch to see which ones have ripened. 
 My best helper: gathering weeds & dumping them 17 times in 10 feet before reaching the compost bin.
 My best indoor helper: shortening the pole on the swiffer to make it just his size. Avi loves to mop!
 The too do list: at least this reminder on the counter is nice to look at. 
 Two of our neighborhood deer: they even know to cross in the crosswalk. 
 The neighbor's cat: and Avi trying so hard to make friends - squatting down and calling out, "Here kitty cat"
 The results of picky chickens who don't eat the sunflower seeds in their scratch: and the bees!
 Chicken sitting for my sister's two chickens: meet this lovely and her floppy comb. 
A play date that bleeds into nap time: God was on my side!! 


  1. Lovely moments! You're helper is the best! Have a great weekend!

  2. Wow, a playdate with nap included? That is up there with the most incredible events I could imagine! A lovely weekend to you and your family.

  3. what a great post. those kids have such curly locks. <3

  4. such beautiful babies!!! and such a good helper.

    apples and spices are always good to look at, and smell and taste. :)

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  5. Love these Jules. We shorten the swiffer so Reece can help clean up too, he loves it. A play date with a nap, lucky you.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  6. So many moments to love! The deer is too funny, the strawberry reminds me of our own. It suddenly decided to grow after two years. Hopefully we'll see some berries before winter.

    The napping is two awesome! Have a great weekend!
