Surprise It’s Fall!

I blinked and it is already fall. I don’t know what it is… being so busy, this virus throwing things a little wonky, or just the fact that every year seems to go by faster and faster… but a friend of mine texted me today to say Happy First Day of Fall and I was like “whoa it is already fall”! How did that … Read More Surprise It’s Fall!

Garden Delights

I love to garden and I know many of you do as well. (The worst part is the weeding, but the mulch this year has helped keep that to a minimum.) There are many things I love about gardening. I love to dig in the dirt, plant the seedlings or seeds, watch them grow, and the best part when you get to harvest. I … Read More Garden Delights

Garden time… almost

This past week hubby and I were pretty busy. Hubby has been working for weeks to chop up a big tree we cut down for fire wood. We are trying to clean up the yard, get things shaped up in the chicken coop, planted a few flowers that have needed to be put in the ground for a while, and tilled the garden. The … Read More Garden time… almost

Dinner and a Lot of Work

Between thunder and lightening storms with lots of wind and torrential rain I tried to get a lot done inside. I got a lot more of the house organized, cleaned, etc. and then made a FREE dinner (well almost). I had a bunch of stuff from my garden and my mom and step-father’s garden. I was trying to figure out what to do with … Read More Dinner and a Lot of Work

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…

New Flower Garden

While hubby and I were fixing up our front porch we used some of the extra concrete to fill in some holes by the side walkway to our house. It left quite a mess in the grass area so I tried to figure out how to get rid of or cover up the mess… then it came to me… add a slightly raised flower … Read More New Flower Garden
