Garden

100_9928

I thought I would share with you all a picture of the lower garden.  It is doing pretty good.  The upper garden is having a little more of a difficult time.  We are having trouble keeping the calves out of it.  They seem to find new ways to get out every day and seem to enjoy the corn in the upper garden very much.  Shadow is getting too old to chase them and Jasper is just learning.  He is on the accelerated learning program right now as I want him to learn quickly.  He actually is getting much better.  He “sometimes” listens and obeys commands.  Sometimes he is just so happy that the calves are running from him, he doesn’t care where they are running.  Oh well, that’s life on a farm.

I helped Hubby today at the farmhouse job.  We thought we would start on running the pipes for the plumbing.  However, the walls in the bathroom were in terrible shape, so we started tearing out the sheetrock in there.  We will be running the pipes up and over the ceiling as there is not enough crawl space underneath.   These older homes were built right down on the ground.  The bathroom has a rock type flooring on it and the owners are wanting to keep it.  This suits me just fine as I was not looking forward to trying to crawl under that floor.   The girls worked on history and science while I was helping Hubby.    We had brought our portable grill with us and did  a picnic for lunch.  We had hot dogs, potato chips and oreo’s.  The lunch of champions.  It was fun.  We set up under a huge walnut tree and were entertained by a very friendly squirrel while we ate.  I brought the girls home after lunch.  They did the house chores while I went back to help Hubby.  It was a full day. 

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

This little guy was playing hide and seek yesterday while we were at the park.  Hubby kept trying to get his picture and he would run away.  It was kinda fun trying to catch him in a good pose.  Finally, he just gave up and took the shot.  I think it turned out good.  This question is for Jess-Do you think this could be the one?  (It’s a long standing family joke) 

The sun is beginning to shine today so maybe we are done with the rainy, dreary days for a while.  I really want to hang my clothes outside today.  I have them in the machine in hopes of getting them out before the sun decides to hide behind the clouds.  Today we will be doing school, as usual, cleaning the house for bible study tomorrow, and hopefully finishes another sack of apples.  So I guess I’d better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Butterfly

I took these pictures the other day when we were cutting wood.   This butterfly is especially for Jess.

This is the view from where we were cutting the wood.

A picture of a fire pink.  There were lots of these blooming in the wooded area.

There is a little trial you can walk that circles around.  This is the beginning of the wooded part of the trial.

About 1 second after I took this picture, a squirrel came running down this trial straight toward me.  I was not fast enough with the camera to get a picture.  I am experiencing technical difficulties with my computer.  My technical support team (Dave) says it is my hard drive.  For now, I am using Hubby’s computer.  For all the people whose blog I read and comment on,  there may be a season of silence.  I have them on my computer in my favorites list and I do not know how to transfer them.  Dave will fix all this in due time.  I hope to learn how to post pictures on this computer.  Pray for me as you all know I am not very technical.  This is my fourth attempt to post this.  The pictures were already loaded from my old computer yesterday before it said goodbye.  Well, enough of all that.  Tonight’s menu at church will be hot dogs with homemade chili, slaw, chips, salad and some kind of dessert (unknown as of yet).  Lunch today was beef roast in the crock pot, potatoes cooked in butter, home canned green beans, and watermelon for dessert.  I guess I better get started on my study for tonight.  Take care and God bless.
