From My Front Yard

I thought I would share this picture with you all.  This is  the view from our front yard.  Our God certainly loves color! 

Not much going on here today.  Just the normal stuff-school, laundry, lunch.  We have had rain and fog this morning.  The rain has stopped and the fog seems to be lifting.  Hopefully, we will soon see lots of sunshine.  Everything is a soggy mess right now.

 I think I’ll go have a cup of pumpkin spice coffee with my Hubby.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Hidden Beauty

Look at these beautiful little violas!  They were hidden away beside some other larger flowers.  I think they are so cute.  They reminded me about how sometimes the beautiful things of God are hidden.  He wants us to put forth a little effort to find them.  Reading and studying His word, praying.  These are all things He wants us to do in order to see His beauty.  But I think also He wants us to listen.  This seems to be the hardest part for me.  Satan obviously knows this because he continuously puts things in my path to distract me and, of course, I allow it to work.  I want to do better.  Spend more time with Him.

What better place to spend more time with Him than right here.  My front yard-looking down at the field.  The cows are up for their morning snack.  The sun is shining and for today (just today) we are almost caught up with the canning.  The girls and I are going to have a “girl day”.  We have some errands to run and then maybe do some fun stuff in town.  We are thinking about going to Goodwill or the Salvation Army, maybe both.  We might even go to Books-A-Million.  I’m not sure yet what we will do, other than have fun.

One more flower picture.  I thought you all might be getting tired of seeing pictures of canning jars.  A little color was needed.  We’re off to enjoy our day.  God bless.

My Newest Helper

This is my new helper.  I did not even know these existed.   About 1 month ago, I was in our local farm supply store, and spotted one of these.  All I have ever used are the old food mills.  I have been told these are so much better than a food mill.  I can’t wait to try it out.    My friend Vicki and I will be making applesauce today out of  early cooking apples.  When we lived in Grundy, we had a June apple tree in our front yard.  I sure do miss that tree.  What they have up here has a little different taste than that one did, but they are still good.  It is our favorite type of applesauce, so I hope to can a lot of it.   Last year, apples were hard to find.  We ran out of applesauce early in the winter and had to buy from the store.  Not near as good as home canned.    Guess I’ll get busy.  Lots to do today but lots of fun too.  Take care and God bless.

My Special Boy

Miss you, already!  We are back from our visit.  The weather was beautiful, 58 degrees when we left this afternoon.  Pretty nice here too, 45 degrees.  The sun is shining and lots of snow has melted.  We actually have a front yard now.  Our little man was sick this weekend.  He has the same thing Julie and Grace have had.  YUCKY!  However,  as we were playing in his toy room this weekend, he looked up at me and said “I love you, MawMaw”.  Well of course my heart melted.  I have tried since he began talking to get him to say that, and just like that he says it.  No prompting from me, nothing.  Just straight from his heart to mine.   Everything in God’s time.  That of course was the highlight of my trip.  We had lots of great food to eat, did some shopping.  I found the girls a dress for piano recital at Goodwill.  Could not find shoes though.  Hopefully we will find some before the recital.  It’s time for us to leave for church.  I just wanted to share with you all my sweet words from my special boy.  Take care and God bless.
