On My Mind…..

This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about TODAY.
To take part, all you have to do is post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to DOWN---TO---EARTH. Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When your photo is published, go back and add at DOWN----TO---EARTH, with a link to your blog photo so we can all find you. Please visit all the blogs that appeal to you and leave a comment. Slow down, take the time to cruise around and enjoy your cyber visits.
Thank you Rhonda Jean for another On My Mind!
Homesteading August 2011 004 I was watching Maggie pick strawberries out of the garden.  She sat down on a rock and was enjoying her harvest.  It made me think about how wonderful Summer has been.  Every evening we go down to the garden as a family, water the garden, harvest veggies, check feed/water for the chickens and goats, enjoy seeing the bees come back to their boxes or hang out in the yard and then we have a sit in our chairs enjoying our surroundings. 

I was happy.
And then it made me realize how soon this will be over.  School starts in a few short weeks.  After that the weather starts to turn and Fall will be here before we know it.  Now, Fall is my favorite time of year so I am not dreading it at all.  But what I am dreading is the carefree moments that we have enjoyed as a family.  No routines to follow, no rules, no certain bedtime, just enjoying each minute as they come.
This has been a great Summer!
