Growing Up

Look how much the baby geese have grown.  100_3536

Learning how to follow in a line.

They have grown so much.  I guess I didn’t realize how fast they would grow.  They wonder all around in the fields and even sometimes in the yard.  Very cute.

We also have other new babies.  The girls found these yesterday in one of our outbuildings.  I’m not sure who their momma is but they are very cute.

Fog came in this morning.  If you look very closely you can see the geese on the pond.  Now you can’t even see the pond.  Very foggy.   Very dreary but good for the plants I put in the garden yesterday.  Yesterday was a very busy day.  When I was young, my mom would use the term “wash day”.  I understand this term better now.  On a wringer washer, doing lots of laundry  literally is a full day of work.  I filled up all my clotheslines twice. LOTS of laundry.   Included in this full day, I also put all the vegetable plants we had purchased in the garden.  Hopefully we are done with frost.   Last night was Team Kids at church.  Next Wednesday is party night as this will be the last week until fall.  Tomorrow we will finish up our Esther study by Beth Moore.  This has been a very good study.  I highly recommend it.  Our Ladies Friday Study will be doing I Corinthians by John MacArthur next.  After that, I want to do Beth Moore’s study on Revelation.   Is anyone familiar with it?  I have looked at it at Lifeway but I would like to get feedback from someone who has done it.  Our Corinthians study is 12 weeks so I have a while to decide.  Better get busy.  Take care and God bless.

Cutting Wood

Here are a few pictures of the wood pile we have been working on.   During the past winter, Marvin decided to have some logging done here on the farm.  They wanted to clear out a new pasture land.  After the logging crew was finished, they piled up all the unwanted wood.  The pile is smaller now than it was at first as several truck loads have already been removed.

This picture shows better how tall the pile is.

This is the pile of locust wood that has been moved to the side.  Billy is using this as fence posts for the new pasture land.

Hubby sharpening his chain saw.  This has to be done frequently.  I wanted to show you all the wood we have cut so far but I didn’t get the picture yesterday and it is raining here this morning.   I’ll save that for another post.  Last nights low was only in the lower 40’s so hopefully we are done with chilly nights.  I have several vegetable plants I want to put out in the garden.  I’ve just been waiting for the danger of frost to pass.  I’m not very good at remembering to cover them up at night so I usually just wait.  School today as usual.  We are getting close to being finished with language.  It is always exciting to finish a book.  I was hoping to do some laundry today, however if I do, I will have to dry them inside.  I might just wait until tomorrow, not sure yet.  The pile is pretty big today, it will be even bigger tomorrow.  I better get started on my day.  Take care and God bless.
