summer's bounty.

happened this weekend.

we received our first eggs.

how do i explain the feeling?
i imagine it is a faint glimpse of what giving birth to a child must feel like.
such pride.
such joy.
such awe at the little miracle before you.

 a visit to my brother's house yesterday.
mom & i got to meet his rhode island reds and leghorns.
we also did a little shooting...
which was both fun (when i was shooting)
 and nerve-racking (when mom was shooting - as evidenced by my brother's face in last photo).

 a few more moments from our time at the lake.
the eggs came from my brother's chickens.
i am "patiently" waiting for my chicks to start laying.

at the lake with the family.
it's been cool and wet but i'm not complaining.
i found the perfect little spot in the house for sewing.
