Hello readers and friends! I'm sorry for dreadful pauses between posts!

The summer started out very rainy. The rain finally stopped coming (though it is cloudy and drizzly this afternoon) and we've been enjoying some nice sunshine. Backing up a little though....

Hannah girl turned 10 in July!

In sad news, Allison (aka, Alice, Chickie, Henny) left us. We found a pile of feathers. : (

We miss having her follow us around in the garden and generally want to be involved with whatever we had going on.

Speaking of the garden, this is the garden/empty lot from the air.... :)

The boys and the gals headed out yesterday (except Vincent who had the flu) to take down and chop up 2 (3?) trees.

Nathan scaled the careful! Peter's got a chain saw!

It was a very exhausting day for most of us. Glad that project is crossed off the list!

Blueberries have been in season...and with all the rain we had we had a bumper crop!

I think so far we've picked near 18 gallons. Those pictured above are from wild bushes but we have been working a cultivated spot which yields 'beefsteak' berries. We've got a few jars all jammed up with jam. It's delicious. :)

I (Carol) have been working on the new family website which I'm really excited about. Basically, we're only semi-finished with the first page....either way we hope to have the rest finished before we leave, but I'm not holding my breath. :)

Hope you all have a good week!

Very cool to see the empty lot from the air.
