The Springiest Summer

It's been lovely here in Kansas City.  When it's not been raining, that is.  We had to pump a couple of inches of water out of the basement a couple of weeks ago.  Thankfully, my psychic powers told me it was going to happen, and nothing got damaged.

Other things happenin' around the Kiefer Cottage:

Picking strawberries near Lawrence, KS.  We lasted a little more than half an hour before the sad faces started cropping up.

Enjoying summer salads and grilled meats out in the yard.

Buying a motorcycle for Ryan's long commute.  The Rabbit went to a new home. Now Ryan may not complain about anything for the next four years.  Food too salty? Don't forget the motorcycle.  Too many chores?  You've got a motorcycle.  Sad you have to shower each day? Motorcycle!

Finding a couple funky chairs at the local furniture market for a great price.

Testing paint colors on the kitchen cabinets.  Loving the Provence color!

What've you been up to?


  1. That's a very impressive looking motorbike! I don't know anything about them, but it's so shiny!

  2. His mama doesn't like the motorcycle at ALL !!!! But I'm sure he knows that.

  3. Your kids are so cute! The food looks good, the cabinet looks good and the motorcycle looks scary...but more practical than a horse.

  4. So exciting when I realize I'm a few blog posts behind! (like, pathetically exciting.) Also, I have to say it again: your kids all have gorgeous hair, and the fact that they have different colors is just awesome.
    Lastly, what is that corn/pasta salad? Looks good.


Thank you for your comments. We appreciate sincerity, snark, and general praise.
