Clearing The Camera

Here are some recent photos I've taken that I wanted to share. Go here if you'd like to see more photo posts.

Our marigolds have done so well this year! We're saving the flowers after deadheading so we can plant the seeds in our garden next year.


On Saturday I took my grandma to a local parade to see David's marching band. It was so cute to see her enjoying herself so much, waving at all the floats and clapping along to the music. She forgot her sunglasses, so I let her borrow some of mine. She thought she looked silly but I think she looked adorable.

90 years young!

I posted this photo on the blog's Facebook page over the weekend with the title "The Homesteader's Entourage." It was one of our most popular photos ever posted. If you aren't following along yet on Facebook, click here to like our page!


I've really been enjoying my play time in the woods lately. It brings out the kid in me!


We've been harvesting and using so much butternut squash lately (go here for a good soup recipe). I love the vivid orange color that greets me when I slice the squash in half.

Sylvester photobomb level: expert.

Our sweet little Emma kitty is getting fixed tomorrow morning. It makes me so sad when I have to drop off animals for surgery, but of course I know it's for the best. She has to stay overnight, so I'll be counting the minutes until I can pick her up on Wednesday evening.


Hope you've enjoyed a slice of our homestead.

  14. Your grandma doesn't look a day over 70! You are so lucky to have her in your life, I never knew mine.

    What a great picture of kitty leading the way! Love it!

    I had my pup neutered a few months ago and I was a wreck. It's the maternal side in us I guess. She will be fine, and wow, she is pretty!

    XO,

  19. So sweet of you to spend some time with your grandma! That is so special. We live so far from our grandparents that we don't have an opportunity to do things like that very often. I understand your worries on taking Emma to the vet - I go through that every time we take one in to get fixed! But each and every time they have come home just fine and I feel so much better knowing I did the responsible thing for them.

  20. Now those are some seriously cute kitty toes! I'm loving my winter squash harvest now, too. I have so many, but only because I plant so many. Enjoy your harvest!

  21. LOVE the entourage! That is too funny. Our marigolds did remarkably well this year too. Guess who's currently enjoying them.......the coop girls. They love the leaves and the flowers. I think the photo of your Grandmother is beautiful!

  23. Good luck to your cat w/the surgery!

    Our Marigolds did great this year too! I was happy to see it. I might move them too though, to the side yard instead of the front.

    I'm sure you hear it all of the time, but your grandma does NOT look 90. And the glasses did look cute. :)

    Have a great rest of the week!
