Gilbert

Daniel’s little kitten, Gilbert, taking a much needed rest under the Christmas tree.  He certainly is a cute kitten.  Very fuzzy.  Sam’s eyes light up every time he sees Gilbert.  He would love to sink his chubby little hands into all that fur.

We had a fun day yesterday.  We went over to our friends, the Horns.  Vicki fixed us lunch, then while the kids played, we make some gingersnap cookies.  They were very good.  We also tried our hand at making some breakfast bars or as we call them energy bars.  They did not turn out near as well as I had hoped.  Not too bad just not as I envisoned them being.  We all had a lot of fun though.  God is so good to provide us with friends like the Horns.  We feel very blessed that they are in our lives.

We had so much rain here the first of the week.  I have no idea how much but I know it was a lot.  Everything was soaking wet.  Water was standing in so many places in our yard.  After the rain, temperatures took a drop.  It dropped about 20 degrees from yesterday morning till this morning.  The sun is shining though so hopefully things will warm up some.  I would like to hang my sheets on the line.

The girls and I have lots to get done today so we better get busy.  God bless.

Dandelions

I think life is much about choices.  How we look at things determine how we react to them.  For example we can choose to see this as just ugly weeds we wish did not grow in our yard or

we can view them as bright, beautiful, yellow flowers.  Years ago, when my daughters were little, they taught me to love dandelions.   Dandelions are usually the first flowers little hands gather and deliver with much love to their mamas.  How special that makes them.  Perhaps that is why God created them.  Anyway my girls and I love them.

This is a flower almost everyone loves.  My lilac bush is starting to bloom!  I can hardly wait.  The bush is outside our laundry room window and it smells wonderful when in bloom.

The girls and I worked very hard last week getting the garden ready to burn off.  Somehow the pile seemed so much bigger last week.  Anyway we worked every day after school except one.  It rained that day.  It is now ready to burn.  Hopefully if it is not too windy Hubby will do it this evening.  Then it will be ready for him to till.  He has to do some work on our tiller first but anyway we are gettting closer.  I hope to have it tilled and ready to start planting by the end of the month.  I love it!  David is gone on a business trip, so Jess and Daniel are coming up to stay with us.  I am looking forward to a great visit.  Everyone take care and may God bless your day.
