Jeeple are my People....

This past weekend we joined three other jeep clubs (Austin, Houston and San Antonio) with our son and his family for a beautiful celebration of Luke returning from his second round of chemo and radiation and being anointed an honorary member of the Austin Darkside Jeep Club.  It was amazing to join in line with 47 other jeeps for this beautiful celebration.  There was so much joy with the Luke and his family and an amazing display of Jeep love, back to school gifts, etc.  Jeeple People are the best!  I am so glad we joined this wonderful group of people in this world!

Harvesting Figs and Making Jam!

Figs are coming ALOT!!  I put up seven jars of Strawberry and Fig jam tonight.....omg, it was so delicious!  I have one tree by the deck and one tree by the studio.  This is just the first rush, the brown figs come twice before frost!!   The Brown Fig is doing great, the LSU purple fig has been a crappy fruit tree since day one.  I am giving it one more year and then it is firewood!  Brown Fig is an American favorite, I am going to plant more of that variety!
Tomorrow's lunch, Honey Peanut Butter and homemade jam and a stop off to my grandkids to give them a couple of jars!

Children and our Hearts

Got a sweet note from Rowan's Mommy, my neighbor, to wish Mandy the best on her final test and for our family celebration.  It is so conflicting to celebrate when a Mother has lost her child.  Lord, please wrap your arms around her today and every day.
