Our hearts broke this week when the national spotlight got too close to home. My father is a retired police officer. He took another job serving the public after he retired, as a bailiff. My dad retired from the court house in Berrien County where two bailiffs where gunned down. He knew both of the men who died and is taking it rather hard. Our family, friends, and neighbors rallied around him with love and support and that made me smile.
Our garden is growing, our ducks are jerks, and life goes on. It has been a busy week of ups and down, lots of activities, and well this mama is exhausted!
So what made me smile this week?
Buffy said she wasn't playing with the littlest country kid's toys but I'm not buying it.
Look, no lights! Finally convinced the oldest country kid to sleep without the light one, finally.
LOVE my farmer manicure!
Baby Girl giving this broody thing a go. Someone wants to play house.
Satan's Kiss hot peppers! Yikes, I really grew some.
My dorks got caught in the rain while playing Pokemon Go. The game may be virtual,
the the rain storm was 100% real. LOL
My handsome boy at his preschool physical. Yup, the oldest country
kid is getting ready to head out into the world this fall.
Betty has joined Baby Girl on the nest *smack forehead* Rotten ducks!
Okay the fact the ducks hoodwinked me did not make me smile,
but the thought of cute little ducklings in our future did.
Mr or Mrs Lightening bug taking a nap in my garden.
Fifi and Cinder, growing into fine young ladies.
Mr. Bill getting the cold shoulder from the expectant mothers. It's your own fault, Bill.
I thought you all might enjoy seeing a very broody mama duck!
Ester, looking as beautiful today as the spring we got her as a chick.
She is our oldest hen now, but she never lets it show!
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
And just a little something fun we made..... We love Family, Farm, and Home! It is our one stop homestead shop!
