Warm Weather Top Ten

I have spent nearly all of the last week outdoors. The long days of summer are calling and the planting season is upon us. The girls and I have been out helping the Hubs in the field, as well as getting plenty of play time outside.

Here's the top ten things I have discovered are things I only think of in the warm weather months.

1. Shorts, leggings and tutu's are not a little girls friend. Jeans are much more knee-saving-friendly, but even they are not indestructible.

2. A melon-baller produces fruit the exact size and shape that I do not want my one year old getting her hands on, ditto for cherry tomatoes.

3. Where did I put my sunscreen?

4. Don't underestimate the pain of the years first sunburn (refer to number 3).

5. Snakes are terrifying creatures.

6. The inside of my house quickly becomes neglected as the outdoors beckons, for example, laundry gets done when children need undies and not before!

7. Sleeping with the windows open is amazing.

8. Bedtime becomes a relative term.

9. Cooking on the grill makes everything taste better.

10. Campfires heal the soul.

I hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day!

Here's to warmer weather...

Changes

I was cleaning today, which gave me time to think, and thinking always leads me here. The house is 'weekend messy', so decided to clean my floors, because The Nester says if your floors are clean the rest of the house feels clean too, even if it isn’t.  I have found that it is pretty good advice, so when everything else feels chaotic, I clean the floors. Of course for me, cleaning the floors also means picking up the toys, shoes, clothes, etc. so that I can even begin to vacuum, which naturally leads to a cleaner home as well.  While cleaning up I began to think about how this blog has evolved over the years, from a desire to write like The Nester about home, into what it is now.  I started writing this blog when I was dreaming of building a new home. Then plans changed, life took turns, and we ended up in a home so different than I expected and so perfect for our family. Somewhere along the way I realized that home wasn’t in the walls that went up or in the co

The Farmer

I trust that, by now, you have all seen the commercial heard round the world. You know, the one that stopped all action and silenced a nation when the soft rumble of that voice drifted into living rooms on a Super Bowl Sunday. Yes that commercial . Paul Harvey's voice, unmistakable in its sincerity and beauty, spoke of a people whom work from sun up till sun down with no recognition. He spoke of a people whom care for their baby animals and pour their blood, sweat and tears into helping them grow. He spoke of a people, so foreign to many in the world today. He spoke of a people whom many have forgotten. He spoke of a people; my people. The farmer. I am a fourth generation farmer married to a fourth generation farmer. Together we are raising the fifth generation. We don't do it because its easy, it's not. The hours my husband spends working rival that of any doctor or lawyer I have ever met. We don't do it because it's profitable, some years it&#

Simplify

I have been wanting to simplify some areas of my life for awhile now, but I just haven't taken the time do it. I already feel like I live a pretty simple life and there are aspects of it that I really love. But there is more that I want to do to improve the way I am living and the way that I am raising my kids. Over the next few weeks, I am going to be sharing some of the things I am already doing and some other things I want to implement into my lifestyle. Let's quiet the noise of the world. Let's tame down the chaos. Let's find a starting point and just jump. It starts at home. Whether you are single or married or have a house full of kids. Peace begins at home. How you treat yourself and how you treat others. We have to start somewhere on quieting all of the noise and giving ourselves and our loved ones a place of rest. A place to feel safe. A place to call home. So lets start small. First up: Let's enjoy a meal with the people we love. You can m
