Water, water, everywhere

Sunday morning Kev received a call from his cousin, asking for help sandbagging the family property in the canyon. If you hadn't noticed, there's been a lot of flooding in Utah. Weird, I know, because we're supposed to be living in a desert.

But hey, there's a lot of water in this desert!

So, he spent all day in the canyon, piling sand bags in an effort to protect the property while Aspen and I tried our hand at Sacrament meeting (almost 100% successful). When he got home, he offered to string up the hammock for me, and when he plopped down in it himself for a few minutes, I couldn't help but think that's exactly the break he deserved after all the manual labor he performed. Sunday is to be the day of rest, right?

Thankfully, he eventually rolled out of it, raised it, and offered it to me. And when Aspen awoke from her nap, he plucked her out of her crib and put her in my lap. It will be a sad day when the apple tree in our yard finally dies. It hasn't been looking so great the last couple of years, and although we don't harvest a lot of the fruit ourselves, I still love the tree. It offers fragrant blossoms in spring and fantastic shade throughout the summer.

That being said, if anyone wants apples and pears this fall, come on over! You can even take the hammock for a spin.


  1. Hammocks are so nice and relaxing. Congratulations on your new backyard accessory.

  2. I love that picture of you and Aspen, it's so sweet. AND I wish I could come get apples and pears from you again- we still enjoy the canned apples I did thanks to you last year. I use them in apple desserts and for apple sauce. Yummy!


Thanks for stopping by!
