Some Days Are Tough

Some days are tough and other days are just about perfect, like the one that Phillip and his friend recently enjoyed at Meuer Farm. The photos are compliments of my lovely daughter-in-love.

That's a bottle of homemade root beer in Phillip's hand,
not a bottle of Miller High Life, in case you're wondering:)

It's always nice when a boy's dad
joins in the fun.

When your mom steps outside of her comfort
zone to shoot corn cobs with you, then
you know it's been a good day.

Hope you are all having a happy autumn.
Life is slowly getting back to normal around here.


  1. My grandson would love that corn cob shooting I suspect. Nothing like a good friend to share a day with.

  2. That first photo is priceless, Donna! The corncob shooting gun looks like so much fun; I know my grandsons would enjoy that.

    I hope your father is doing better.

  3. That first picture is so sweet! Looks like they had a really fun day. I'm hoping we can visit a pumpkin patch near us next week.
    Glad things are returning to normal for you, we miss you! :)

  4. Oh Donna -- what a beautiful warm post! A perfect day for sure. Thanks for sharing (and to Phillip's mom and dad for sharing it with you!).

    Thinking of you.....

  5. Are you sure that isn't Millers High Life??? LOL! Corn cob shooting looks like a blast! I hope I can try it one day!!!

  6. Uhh shooting corncobs....never ever heard of that. Seems fun.
    Great to hear your heart swollen with love for others.
    Hugs D.

  7. I love it when a day comes together like that. It leaves you with a warm heart and softens all your troubles. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Love everything about this! Sweet! So glad to read a post from you. Enjoy a wonderful weekend

  9. Loved every word and picture. I was going to say that I miss having kids to take to fun places......but I don't recall having ever taken mine to a pumpkin patch/farm/corn maze place even when they were little. Can I have a do-over?!

  10. glad you clarified the beer bottle....just kidding !
    i knew it wasn't beer :)

  11. Donna that's so funny, that really does look like a beer bottle.

    I've been gone from blogging this summer too. I hope you're doing OK.

  12. Hello Donna, so good to see you posting.
    I am mystified about the corn cobs. Do you shoot at them, or shoot them out of these contraptions? (obviously not something we do in Scotland!)

  13. Hi Donna just stopping by for a quick Hello!

    I have been busy with homework and I had a minute to stop by to see what you have been up to.

    It looks like you and your family had a wonderful time, the weather appeared warm and beautiful!

    I like that photo of Philip and his little friend going up the road with what looks like real beer.. but it's not" Lol!

    I would have loved to been their playing around with that shooting corn husk machine, that looks like so much fun! I like stuff like that.

    It's good to see that you too" still have some pretty falls days to enjoy outdoors still.. have a wonderful weekend.

    Great post. I haven't heard of shooting corn here. Looks like its fun. Love the first photo so much.

    Hope you have a great week.


  15. I enjoyed the photos. I think the first is my favorite. I like to take photos from behind, too.

    I'm glad to hear things are starting to get back to normal.

  16. Glad to see you back blogging Donna. What a sweet post this one is. Homemade root beer! Yummy

  17. Award winning first photo, Donna ... love it! Hum, shooting corn cobs ... never done it but looks like fun :)

  18. Looks like a perfect fall day. I love the photo of the two boys walking down the road.

  19. What a fun family day, Donna.
    Have a beautiful autumn eve ~

  20. Hi Donna,

    No beets for you huh? :)

    The family that plays together, stays together. That's a quote that keeps running through my mind as I see these cute photos. Kids grow up so fast. I am stressing out because Kiki is getting ready to leave the nest.

    I hope you are having a good Autumn. I remember the wild turkeys you posted a while back. Maybe you can dress one for Turkey day this year. Ha ha.


  21. Sounds like a fun day for all! I just love that first shot of the boys walking with arms around their shoulders. Good to have you back! s

  22. Hi;
    I'm sorry you've been dealing with such difficulty. I have, too, and so I have shallowly avoided other situations. That be me. Anyhoo. I just wanted you to know I've been keeping an eye on you and I thought this was a very heart warming post. You've got tons of friends out there...

  23. I'm glad it's getting back to normal there. I hope all is well. Good to see you back Donna.

  24. Hi, Donna!
