Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

Its HOT here today… a nice change from the cold wet weather.  I feel more motivated to get out and do things in nice weather and I am happy for my garden vegetables too as the warmer weather seems to make them grow tall. On our walk the other day through the battlefields I saw some really old pumps. I always see things like this as art. The above pump I really liked and I thought the orange background was so vibrant against the old pump. I also saw the below pump and liked it against the green grass.

The chickens are enjoying the warmer weather and trying to get into my garden… tough luck chickens my fence should keep them out.







Its hot enough the boys are inside enjoying the fan and a late afternoon nap… they are my cuties 🙂

Dinner is chicken and the fixings and then I have to catch up on my reading… I have a pile of magazines two feet tall, no joke, and I want to clean out some clutter. Happy hump day…  I hope you were blessed 🙂

P.S. Anyone want to take a stab at who sang the song that is my title today?

Rainy day…

It’s raining today. I don’t always like rainy Saturday as it usually interferes with what I have to do and I get a major headache from them. Today I am ok with the rain as I need to clean house and get things back in order after our trip. I thought today would be a good one to share some more of my photos from our trip… Hope you enjoy !


I love this tire off a tractor that was getting repainted…


I took this picture as it reminds me of a barn that as a child I would have loved to pop in and out of the windows as a game.


This is one of those lovely evening sky.


This was the large sky I love in this part of the country.

My conference I went to yesterday was long, but very educational. I didn’t get home till 9 PM and was so tired I went to bed. I hope you have a good Saturday!

Sunsets and Thankfulness…








I love sunsets. There is something about the end of a day that God created special. It’s a time to reflect on the day and count your blessings.

Sunday the day of rest…

So today is supposed to be a day of rest and in some households it is. In my household we try to honor this, however today it was not so easy to do. I had so many other things to do yesterday that the house list from Saturday got moved to today. Todays list included cleaning (including closets, drawers, floors, rugs, dusting, polishing, dishes, and laundry), grocery shopping, taking care of the pups and chickens (who are running around the yard), and a little light cooking. I am too tired to make my original plan of Pot Roast and not just any pot roast, the Best Pot Roast in the World (recipe to come hopefully tomorrow). I decided to take a break and write a post and see if anyone was out there… I hope you had a good Sunday that was less busy than mine. Blessings for the coming week.
