You All Are The Best – Ever!

     You all are the best!  You really are!  Your e-mails and messages have meant a lot to me, and I appreciate your encouraging words more than you can ever know.  We’re okay.  In fact, the girls and I were quiet today.

     Lord willing, I will be back to more or less “normal” blog […]

I’m Still Alive

     I’m still alive.  My days are blessedly full, and I’m working at about half speed while nursing a bad back.  We’ve been quiet at that other place, too. 

     I miss you all and hope to be back here soon.

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your […]

I Failed To Mention

      I failed to mention that there are a few more pictures at that other place.  We’re off to church.  We are celebrating Father’s Day tomorrow with a dinner for seventeen here at our place. 

     Have a blessed Lord’s Day!

The Heat Is On

      Becky asked how we manage to keep up with all of our work when the temperatures soar.  Good question!  The obvious answer is that we try to do as much of the outdoor work and heavy indoor work as we can early in the day while it is still cooler.  I try to get […]

Broody Hens

     A few of my hens have gotten broody.  The Lord gave them that tendency so that they’d keep their eggs warm until hatching.  However, we do not keep a rooster.  We’ve had the odd rooster come to our home in batches of chicks, but they’ve all had rather short life spans.  Consequently, our chickens’ […]

I Smell Smoke


    I know that I’m not the only one who said, “I smell smoke.” in the central valley of California today.  A very strong, dry north wind blew from early morning until sunset.  We have had a very dry late winter and spring and wind-driven fires abounded.  The closest fire was many miles […]


     Things are just humming right along here.  Humming.  That’s not too noisy, is it?  I hope not, because we were quiet this evening.

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your household!Proverbs 31:27 


I Just Might Be One

     I finished reading Rod Dreher’s book, Crunchy Cons, the other evening.  The subtitle of this book is quite long, but quite catchy, and the subtitle is what prompted me to put this book on my wish list several years ago.  The subtitle:  How Birkenstocked Burkeans, gun-loving organic gardeners, evangelical free-range farmers, hip homeschooling mamas, […]

June 4, 2008

     Oh, my, my, my, my…….where has the time gone?  It is June 4 already!  Our days have been full, blessedly so; but we have had our share of troubles, too.  The Lord has something to teach me through the trials so I accept them as they come.  Sometimes I accept them with a cheerful […]
