Pretty Skies and Garden Update

Hello everyone! I hope all of you have been having a good week so far.

We have been busy doing the usual things here. Gardening, canning, things like that.

Teaching Daniel how to work up beans. He seemed to enjoy it and wants to help more. I’m glad. I think it is important for children to learn the art of gardening and canning. So far, we have about 60 quarts of beans canned, with hopefully more to do.

One of my first tomatoes and just look how big it is. It has been so dry here at my house. It amazes me that the garden is producing at all. Jess, who lives 10 minutes from us, has rain almost every day.

A carrot I pulled the other day to add to our slaw. I haven’t had much success with carrots in years past but they have done very well this year.

We have had some beautiful night skies here.

The moon has been so pretty.

That’s all for now. I hope you all have a great Friday. God bless.

Blueberry Picking

Grace and I took the kiddos blueberry picking today. We had so much fun!

Nap time! I love it.

They did such a good job picking.

They each had their own bucket.

All together they picked a half gallon of berries. Impressive!

Then we celebrated our hard work with a pizza picnic.

After we ate, play time!

I love the fact that they still love playgrounds!

Thank you Lord for such a good day!

Big News

So yesterday, I said I would be having big news in this post. Grace’s art work will be on display for the months of July and August at our local library.

We are all so proud of her and so happy for her.

She draws every day. Constantly improving her skills.

This is a really BIG step for her.

I LOVE the picture and the write up she did about herself to go with the display.

I love you, Grace!


Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a grest weekend. Ours was nice. We spent the day yesterday with the Horns. We had a great time.

I thought I would show you all a few garden pictures. These are some purple beans we grew for the first time this year. The germination wasn’t very good but there will be enough to have something different. I love the color.

Beautiful green tomatoes.

Our blueberries. They are not very big but they taste really good.

And a picture of my ever faithful Ezzie. She is always with me when I am outside. She sits outside the gate to the garden, waiting on me to come out so we can play.

I have also been enjoying my little fireplace. It is the perfect size for my campfires.

That’s all for now. I have big news coming in my next post. God bless.
