My newest favs

These are my latest obessions: Iced Coffees and FreezePops.
Together they do not sound good, but when they are eaten separately...
they definitely satisfy me.

(I even found a recipe to make my own blended iced coffees at home )

Okay, so who dropped this off?

When I was younger, from time to time, we would get the occasional dog or cat dropped off at the farm. I guess someone was sick of taking care of their family pet, or maybe the family pet was expecting and they didn't want all the extra trouble. So they would drive a good number of miles away from least far enough way so the pet couldn't remember how to get home, drop off the animal, and return home with no animal.

Today, Brendan showed me the newest animal that "showed up" around our farm. A Turtle. How did this turtle find our oasis? As slow as turtles are, it must have taken days to get from the road to our pond. We promise to not harm him or her....but I hope it's a good hunter, we don't feed our fish either. They have to hunt for their own food too.

Fireworks as told by my boys

"I want to go home, the fireworks are too loud." (said in the middle of cries)

"Are they[fireworks] done yet?" (even though the fireworks started 5 minutes ago.)


"There's another one, and there's another one..."

"Those are beautiful."

"Zzzzzzzz" (or at least one was trying to sleep. What's up with that?)

"That one's big"

"let's go" said with a whine

"Look how high that one went."

"Mom, cover my ears"

We had a great time with friends watching 45 minutes of fireworks in Overisel.
