This past week has been a blur. Finishing up painting my studio and taking a trip out to the farm. And now I'm back and it seems hardly possible that we drove for over twelve hundred miles and moved a whole truckload of stuff back into our house. It was great to see my family and it was great to see the farm (my mom has done amazing things there in this past year) and it's great to have the last of my stuff back, but the trip went by too fast.

Here are a few views from the week:

The old apple tree is laden with apples and Mom's veggie garden is tremendous this year.

We harvested goodies to bring back with us:

And we even found some time to play.

But not enough.

Hope you were able to savor many Joys in the last week and that you find many to savor in the coming week as well!


  1. I love these photos Anne , especially of you with the sparklers! Your Mum has done amazingly well. The house is beautiful! I wish I lived there!!! Just look at all the fruit and veg you took home. In spite of the drought the crops came to fruition. I hope you and your family can spend many more happy times at the farm.

  2. You always find such beauty around you! Lovely. Totally yummy! Fun sparkles. :)

  3. I found your beautiful blog through Squiggly Rainbow. What a glorious veggie garden and farmhouse.

  4. So glad you had a good visit with your family, Anne. Lovely photos, and beautiful produce to bring home. Your studio should be amazing when done! Thank you for sharing your joy!

  5. What a lovely weekend! You did so much - no wonder it seemed short! That's some gorgeous produce to bring home for your week.
