Wild Roses

Remember the rose bush up by the fence that had not bloomed yet.  Well, this is it.  It is full of tiny white bloom.  Very pretty.

I thought I would share with you all how my plants look.  This is what the cucumbers looked like before we transplanted them.

This is what they look like now and this is one of the better looking ones.  Oh well, live and learn.  I am going today to a local greenhouse and hopefully get some cucumber plants.  Yesterday, after school, the girls and I worked on weeded some of our flower beds.  We planted some cosmos seed, some columbine and some seeds that just said “cut flowers”.  It is a little late getting the seeds in the ground but I think they will still have time to make flowers.

Temperature here is beautiful.  70 with sunshine and a good steady wind.  I have clothes ready for the line and another load to wash.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

New Aprons

Here are two new aprons I just finished.  I think the red polka dot is so cheerful.  I think it would make anyone happy wearing it around doing household chores, don’t you?  Today has not been a very pleasant day here in our little section of God’s creation.  High wind has been the main issue today.  Gusts up to about 70 mph and a steady wind of about 40-50 mph.  We tried to go down to the barn a little while ago to get milk.  The drifts were too high for our old 86 Chevy truck to get through even in 4wheel low.  The wind is blowing so hard, the chimney is having a hard time drawing, so it has been a challenge  keeping the fire going.   If you look outside, you would think we live in Alaska.  Of course, I’ve never been to Alaska, but it looks like the pictures I’ ve saw.  We awoke this  morning to single digit temperatures with below zero wind chills.  The temperatures did not come out of the teens all day and the wind has continued to blow stronger.  The weatherman says we are in a “nor’easter” ( I’m not sure I spelled that correct) until sometime tomorrow afternoon and then the wind will calm to about 20-30 mph.  Oh well, that’s winter.  Okay, I’ve complained enough about the weather for one day.  I know things could be so much worse.  We still have electricity, the water isn’t frozen and it’s warm inside our home.  God is good!  As my step-grandmother used to say “Praise the name of my King”  I pray you all will keep warm and safe this night.  God Bless.
