I thought I would show you all another picture of the roses in the tree.  I took this one this morning looking down from the girl’s bedroom window.  They have really looked beautiful this year.

We are still working on school as we took about a month break before and during vacation.  We only lack 10 more days if we do double lessons every day.  Then I think we will take off the summer.  We are looking forward to it.

After school we plan on making strawberry rhubarb jam.  I posted the recipe here http://merryheartcrafts.com/category/recipes/canning-recipes/  I have made this jam for many, many years.  The recipe I normally use is a little different than this one but I want to give this one a try.

Today I am looking forward to hanging clothes on the line, doing school, making jam and hanging out with my girls.  I have such a blessed life.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all doing great today.  We are kinda warm here in Floyd-86 degrees but we do have a very pleasant wind so it doesn’t seem so bad.  At least, not if you are in the shade!

We worked in the garden this morning.  We started early but it still got pretty hot before we were done.  This is a picture of the first raised bed.  We have been enjoying the salad greens and green onions for a while now.

We had a great visit yesterday with my Uncle John and Aunt Elaine.  They live in Mighigan and had never been to the farm before.  Jess and her kids came up.  Everyone went  for a ride in the bumpy truck.  It was so good to get to see them.

Our grapevine seems to be doing okay now.  I was a little worried about it as it got frostbite by the last frost we had.  We won’t have as many grapes as last year but it looks like there will be a few.

The roses are blooming and look very beautiful in the tree.  We spent most of the evening sitting here yesterday enjoying the view and time spent with family.  I wanted to tell you all about something beautiful I saw last night.  I almost ALWAYS have to get up during the night to go to the bathroom.  Well, last night when I got up I looked out our bedroom window and the sight I saw was totally amazing.  The stars were shining so bright in the sky and underneath them the lightning bugs were everywhere!  So many it looked like blinking Christmas lights.  I stood there watching it all thinking how good our God is to allow me to see something like that!

I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
