Garden Goodies

My garden is in full bloom right now. I planted a little later then others in my area so as their gardens are dying, mine is still giving me lots of good stuff 🙂 This is what I have gotten so far this week… I have already canned 17 pints of diced tomatoes, three of cherry tomatoes, 15 jars of yellow tomato salsa, and … Read More Garden Goodies

Purple Cones of Summer

It was another lovely perfect day and I was off all day to enjoy it for a change 🙂 Hubby and I got so much more done today and even had time to take the dogs for a walk. The summer flowers are out and were showing their faces today. The purple cones are in full bloom here and I think they are just … Read More Purple Cones of Summer

What a day…

What a day… part relaxing and part hard work… as any good day should be. Hubby and I were off today so we started it with breakfast and a long drive. Then we did our errands and returned home to do the chores. We got the chicken ladders done, the garden weeded, helped the neighbor pick tomatoes and pull up potatoes, started the tractors … Read More What a day…

Great Neighbors

It’s great to have neighbors like we have… you can depend on them, trust them, and you can bless them if they let you… This evening I went over to visit one of our neighbors. I could see him out in his garden. He is in his 80’s and currently struggling with lymes disease among other things. He isn’t getting around as he used to so … Read More Great Neighbors

Cool Breeze and Hot Days…

This morning it was a very nice morning… on the way to church the breeze came though the open truck window and provided some cool comfort. By mid day it was hot and humid… so there was no outside work getting done. This Sunday I wanted to update things and show you this last picture of JD my Uncles dog that I have from … Read More Cool Breeze and Hot Days…

Sunny Thoughts

Today, since it is raining, since it is cloudy, and since I can’t be outside… I thought I would share a sunny day photo and sunny thoughts.What I most like about a sunny day is it makes you happy. The sun has a way of turning a bad mood around and helps you feel better. The sun is warm and feels nice on your … Read More Sunny Thoughts

Happy Earth Day…

It is earth day… a day focused on how we can help keep the earth beautiful that God made so long ago. It is hard to imagine how beautiful and clean the earth was when God created it. It is saddening to think of all the damage humans have done to earth. It is good to know at least now we can do things … Read More Happy Earth Day…

Flower and Garden Festival

Yesterday my mom and step-father came up for the local Flower and Garden Festival held in a couple towns over from us. It was a sunny day, but again that old wind showed its cold breath. It was warmer when the wind was not blowing, but when Mr. Wind came around you needed a warm jacket and hat. Luckily the sunshine showed all day and … Read More Flower and Garden Festival

Simple Sunday

It was another pretty yet cooler day… the sun was shining, the clouds were white and fluffy, and it was a good day for outside work. I know your not supposed to work on Sunday, but this work was for us and it was relaxing in some respects. We got some root vegetables put in the garden… the lawn got mowed (again)… the chicken … Read More Simple Sunday

Happy Easter!

He has risen… Wishing you a blessed and happy Easter Day and hoping you have better weather then we do. We had a nice meal in spite of it…. ham, fruit salad, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, and deviled eggs. ‎ We had blueberry and lemon cupcakes for dessert. My wonderful hubby even brought me home a spring flower to enjoy and then plant in … Read More Happy Easter!

Beauty of Flight

Some things that I see instantly make me think of the beauty of God… rainbows, beautiful days, a baby, and on my birthday trip to the zoo butterflies. It would seem that a creature like a butterfly with its delicate wings and big body would have a hard time flying as gracefully as it does… But somehow it does. I would also thing landing on something hard … Read More Beauty of Flight
