Good Things




:: flowers in little jars around our home
:: laundry on the line
:: family foraging adventure 
:: wild raspberries
:: food from the backyard
:: pantry shelves and freezer slowly filling up
:: garlic harvested and hanging to dry
:: meals enjoyed outside
:: a summer breeze cooling us off
:: jars of herbs infusing on the kitchen windowsill
:: lazy summer afternoons
:: family time at home
:: squeals of delight from my little man as he ran through the cold spray of the hose
:: one knitting project cast off, another cast on
:: imagination
:: the excitement that comes with planning
:: working towards our dreams together

What good things are you enjoying this summer?

  5. Those flowers are gorgeous! And the berries...and the laundry. (You know I love laundry hanging on a line...)

    We harvested our garlic this weekend, too. I scrambled to do it on Saturday because the forecast called for rain Saturday night & Sunday...but it stayed dry. I ran a bit short of what I needed for the year (I think we ran out in March or April), so I've been using grocery store garlic for the last couple of months & I am *so* looking forward to having the good stuff on hand again! xo

    1. Thank you, all of them are from the backyard :) The berries are amazing, we are so lucky this year, the wild raspberries are just amazing and so abundant.

      We ran out too, around February this year. Hoping this gets us close to next year's harvest time. Only time will tell.

  6. Great list Kim. I am enjoying the sound of the ocean and the call of sea birds, sand under my feet. The feel of garden soil in my hands. Fresh fruit and vegetables at every meal, lazy, hot summer afternoon naps under the ceiling fan and living quietly and simply, just the way I like it.

    1. Thanks Karen. The raspberries are awesome this year, and we are picking them by the bowlful every few days. We are thinking we might have one more pick, fingers crossed. Blackberries, lucky you. Ours won't be ready for a few more weeks, but we are keeping our eyes on them :)
