A Day at an Orchard

Rolling around the Lied lodge on a baggage cart

Face painting brings out a new color in Nora's eyes

Talking to a woman who has grown her own 8 acre homemade soup business into a 30 acre business that supports her family and 3 interns.  Inspired.  And she don't take no sugar.  Talking to her was refreshing.

Seeing Mom and Mike support each other, building a dream Mom has had for a long time, the one that started speaking when she first watched her three girls go to school and thought, "I've always wanted to try pottery."

Having some extra help from Grandma and Grandpa at the end of the day.

Another handmade birdhouse to add to my collection.

A picture that says, "Simplify," and the mystery of the message is enough to make me consider it.

Homemade sage soap.  People making things and selling them to people who will use them.

Following Nora through the corn maze.  For a girl who lives in the middle of corn fields, you can cut a maze through it, but she'll just find a way to walk out down one of the rows.  Our shoes weighed ten pounds each because of the mud.

  1. So glad this day went rather better than the one before it! :) Looks like you had a wonderful time. And the lady with the garden-for-soup inspires me, too. Like the Proverbs 31 woman who provides for her family.

    Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
