{ This Moment }

A single photograph from the week, a moment I wish to pause, savor, and remember...

my morning view, while watering the garden and drinking iced coffee

In the garden

 Somehow, despite the high temps, the garden is still producing loads of goodies. Still more than we can eat alone, so I am able to share with the neighbors... which I love doing!
I keep forgetting to pick some squash blossoms and stuff them with local goat cheese. That is the plan for next week.
I keep hoping to see some hints of melons, but although the viney plants are growing like gang busters, there are few flowers and no fruit yet. Still, they make the garden look lovely and green.

Actual knitting

Joining Small Things for Yarn Along.

Finally, finally was inspired. I think I am going to try to do a single crochet around the edge of the hand towels, or maybe just a blanket stitch?
I am also making dish clothes, but then thought... maybe costers? We need them with all the sweaty glasses of ice water being drank around here.
Still reading "Buddhism for Mothers" and still loving it so so much.

Crafting with food

Joining Frontier Dreams for KCCO.

Raspberry peach freezer jam. Need I say more?? Deliciousness! I am not sure this will make it for long, I will have to hide a jar waaaaay in the back of the freezer. It is such a lovely jam, looks like jewels.

The weekend was such a relief from a trying week. Coffee in the early mornings with my sweetheart, a bit of work in the garden, and then a crazy bunch of visiting with family. Saturday was nuts, but fun. Sunday was a relaxing break before the start of another busy week.

*Gratitude Sunday*

Joining Wooly Moss Roots for Gratitude Sunday. Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slowdown, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.

I know Soulemama has stopped, but I still love this... A single photograph from the week. A moment I wish to pause, savor, and remember.
