A Mostly Quiet Summer

The summer here on the farm has flown by.
It's been quiet ~ mostly. 

The chickens have been loving the abundance
of insects and green grass that have come from our frequent
and unusual summer rains.

The bees have multiplied and swarmed,
succeeded and failed
and now two healthy hives remain ready for fall.
Hopefully we will have a honey harvest too!

Our boys are all adults now! The oldest is in medical school.
Still in Oklahoma but a few hours away. 

Our middle son came home this summer from equine work
with two beautiful thoroughbreds in tow. It's nice to have him near again.

And our youngest is running through life ~ literally.
Luckily he found a way to volunteer while doing so.

While all this has kept us busy,
we've been continuing to transition our farm life to a slower pace.

Right now we are all trying to enjoy 
the summer blooms while they last ~
even the cat.


  1. So good to see this post, I can't get over how your sons have grown. Where does the time go?

    1. They do grow up in a blink of the eye.

    1. It was cute the first time when I snapped the pic but he has returned time and again for naps and completely smashed the flowers. We still love the cat though!

  3. Looks like you've had a wonderful summer. So glad that your boys have all found their niche. So happy to see your post this morning. Enjoy your weekend, Kim!

  4. Fascinating to see where your boys are now! This summer I've been spinning the Jacob roving you sent me long ago, and enjoying it very much.

    1. You will have to let me know what you make with it. I've been trying to decide what to do with all the yarn that I have left from our former flock.. Maybe have woven blankets made for our family members.
