Where does a month go? When last I blogged the locale was in sunny Southwestern France, sitting on the top of the world in the village of Beynac, gazing at pie-plate-sized raspberry flowers and watching a matching colored hot air balloon floating past my cafe table. Ahhh, the memories linger and don't worry, I have more journals to post about France in future days!
But today, I am sitting on the edge of the Zumwalt Prairie looking on the Wallowa Mountains, with not a cloud in the blue, blue sky. The day promises to be extra fine, hitting 80+ temperatures. I must say, it's a glorious time of year here on the Shire, with some of the finest weather of the year.

So, what's been keeping me busy these last thirty days? Well, sounds mundane, but mostly catching up with my family and life on Full Circle Ranch. In that space of time we have had two major weddings to attend (Katie Boyd Moss and Aileen Rice Helsel) and every other weekend full.

On Tuesdays I help Christi with her two youngest, Isabella and Alden, while she is at our local homeschool co-op teaching high school history. We have a ritual on that day of going to the library, picking out books and then on to Heavenly's, a favorite little Enterprise restaurant, for an ice cream cone--in that order! On Wednesdays I pray with three other lovely ladies during the lunch.
