A few of my favorite things...

My family:
My friend Hannah Dagley:
Newlyweds: :) (We met up with Ben and Hannah in Bismarck last Saturday, after attending the church service with our new friends--which was very nice, by the way!)
Newly tuned pianos: (Andrew found he could buy the equipment for tuning for less than it would cost us to get in a guy to tune one of our pianos!!! And now, he is able to learn a new skill. *See video at the bottom of this post if you wish to hear how out of tune my new-to-me piano really was!)

Frogs:

Corn cobs growing more and more full with each day that passes:

My round garden, which is gradually becoming a little jungle:
Cosmos blooming in the corners of my round garden: :)
Squash growing:
Sunflowers, reaching for the sky:
Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini...
Romaine lettuce:
Beets and dill:

Pumpkin patches and Wapsie Valley corn:

My Lady--comin' on the run to greet me in the morning:
And finally, my brother's funny faces! ... :)

What wonderful things to love!!

You're garden looks so good! I love gardening, but, unfortunately, I don't have much ground to garden on...nor an abundance of sun (we live in a wooded area)I just have a small square. However, I try to make the most of it. Do you have any tips on gardening? Maybe the best things to plant with such little space? or what would grow the best? Anything would help! Thanks!

How wonderful that Andrew can tune your piano(s)! It is so expensive to have it done. I haven't had mine done in a long time. The pictures were very nice.

Hi Sweetie! Catching up on all that you and your family have been up to! ;) Wow, your garden looks great! So many delicious and beautiful tings growing! :D And that little frog is so cute! :) Although I'd not be "brave" enough to hold him. ;) HeHe!

Goodness, I think your piano was even more out of tune than mine is! :P When Andrew played that octave...:P Whew! I cringed! ;) Lol! Glad he was able to fix it for you so you can play it now! :) I miss having a working piano. :( Mine needs some strings and a new piano key and tuning...or a keyboard type that's not expensive. Maybe someday. ;)

I'm keeping your mom and Jacob in my prayers...hope they are having a blessed time and have a safe trip home again! :)

Lot's of Love and Hugs my dear friend! :D
Have a blessed day!
