If you follow my blog, you may have noticed that I have been struggling to maintain my usual weekly schedule of blog hops and posts in recent months. I am sorry friends. I have been experiencing some difficulty lately with my thyroid and endocrine system. I am preparing for treatment to shrink tumors in my thyroid, and if that fails, surgery to remove it.
I hope to be on the mend soon. Until then however, please accept my apologies as I do not have my usual stamina and will not be blogging as much as I like to do until I feel better. I do plan to keep sharing Farmgirl Friday with Deb, Dolly and the rest of the farmgirls in the blogiverse. It's one of my favorite pick me ups. I will try to keep everyone posted about my farm babies, how much they're growing, and life on our little farm. I cherish the farmgirl and homesteading online community. I am inspired by so many of you. Thank you.
Today I put fingers to keyboard to share how thankful I am for some small blessings.
My family is well. Our kids even came for a visit for Father's Day and we got to spend some time with our grandson too. That's always nice. Together the boys moved a few rocks in our little river trying to widen a small pool area for a swimming hole.

My garden keeps plugging along in spite of a few really smart and tricky gophers that have been evading my traps and stealing whole plants down their holes. I am harvesting lots of yummy zucchini and cucumbers daily now, and my tomatoes are starting to ripen a few more each day working toward a big harvest and canning time.
I am also very thankful for the friendship and comraderie of many great friends both near and far. Some of whom bless me with good conversation and comedy relief whenever I need it.
I hope this post finds you in good health, and in the company of those you love. It's always a good time to count your blessings.
