Sweet! Thanks. I just googled the directions on light rail and the bus. Sounds pretty easy and only about 30 minutes. I'm excited.

My brother and I used to dig through what was the trash dump for the old mines where we grew up. What fun we had. I used many of my treasures in my "kitchen" where I made mud pies for all.

I'm just branching out into quilting and I"m finding there are way too many fabric choice and way too little time. Thanks for the chance to win.

I got glasses when I was in the second grade. I had lasik done 11 years ago and it was the best money I ever spent. I have just admitted to myself that I need reading glasses. I just got glasses to drive at night. I am so bummed that my lasik didn't last longer, but was warned of that. Apparently it is a combination of old eyes and being diabetic. Plus there are so many cute glasses out there to chose from now.

While we aren't exactly homesteading here in the city, we do eat local as much as we can. We purchased a 4H raised pig from a co-workers daughter. We divided it into thirds (us, parents, in-laws). Except for the bacon. We kept every package of bacon and loved every piece of it!

I think it was a horrible year for gardens. It got so hot so fast here in Colorado. I only got 3 onions, no broccoli. The peppers were good although I'm afraid to go out and look at them since the overnight lows for the last 3 nights were in the 30's. They've been covered since I've had no time to pick them. Fingers crossed. The pumpkins are small, my pickling cukes never grew. But I was able to prepare and store some goodies for later this winter. My plum tree, however, is a whole other story. After splitting in half last year, it rebounded remarkably. I'm a little over the plums now. And the weeds. Oh, the weeds. And we weren't even under the weather for weeks on end as you were. They just take over so fast! Hope you're all feeling better.

That is a wonderful family moment. My moment this week is one that was all mine. I had looked forward to this moment all week and it was delicious. http://the-random-thoughts-in-my-head.blogspot.com

You've got to love a baby that can sleep anywhere! I know I appreciate it! Times like this I wish I still lived in New England. I always loved fair/fall time back east.

I remember those days of splitting and stacking wood in the heat like it was yesterday. Although we don't have humidity here in CO, it is still hot when you're working like that. All we had to was the creek in front of the house to stick out feet in and I know we did that a lot. Thanks for sharing Soule Papa!

This would look wonderful on our new barn style shed! Thank you for the opportunity.

My mom was an elementary school librarian and got whooping cough. Everyone she was in contact with (family and her close contact co-workers) had to take antibiotics as well. I remember she coughed so hard that she threw her back out and bruised a couple of ribs. I also remember the medicine they gave us made me sick so I had to take a different antibiotic for a longer period of time because it wasn't as effective. Not fun times. Whether or not a family decides to vaccinate is completely up to them. Your reasons for not are your reasons and yours alone. Just as ours for are our reasons alone. No one can change that. I hope the Soule family feels better soon with no bruised or broken ribs! And that you can enjoy the rest of the summer.

I love being able to just walk outside to figure out what is for dinner! Nothing like fresh dinner!

Some nights my husband and I put the baby to bed and then fall into bed exhausted as well. The heat just zaps the energy. But we still spend our time outside working in the yard or playing in the mountains!

That is Awesome! I wonder what he is going to make? I was just a little bit older when I learned to knit. After what seems like forever away because I've been working on FR, our moment this week is a meditative moment... http://the-random-thoughts-in-my-head.blogspot.com/ Happy Friday!

We've been planting French Breakfast Radishes for years. We also eat them pretty similar, but we butter a triscuit type of cracker and then put the sliced radishes on that with salt. mmmmmmm. Dee-lish. It's way to hot and dry right now to plant a second planting. That will have to wait until mid August. Then we'll harvest just in time for fall. Provided, of course, we don't get an early surprise snow storm!

What a amazing nest. I hope that they sing beautiful songs to you every morning. We started our day to a wonderful rain shower and much cooler temperatures. It has been a big help to all of the fires here in Colorado.

What a great transformation! I love the little flower garden. I can't wait until my daughter can "help" in the garden! All kids should dig in the dirt.
