thankful

These days are so full lately that there is an overabundance of things to be thankful for! I’m having a hard time deciding! But I suppose what tops my list is that this year’s garlic harvest is complete. An estimated nine thousand bulbs were pulled and are now up in the loft of the barn for drying. I’m thankful that my back didn’t break, and that in the final push to get the job done, my kids and one of their buddies pitched in and gathered the garlic as Eric and I snipped the bulbs from the stalks, frantically trying to stay ahead! (A little cash bribe never hurts to inspire involvement…)IMG_7354IMG_7350{How did I do, Sasha?}IMG_7316I’m also thankful for ripe fresh fruit, seasonal treat that it is. The wild blackberries are looking good. So good, in fact, that Eric couldn’t resist picking few gallons for a batch of blackberry wine. I’ll be thankful for that in a few months!

Finally, I’m thankful for this cute little fellow, my first Shetland lamb. He was born just a few days ago, and aptly named Blackberry by Opal.IMG_7363Here’s to summer, friends, in all of it’s glory! I hope your days fill up with so many things to be thankful for…
