  • awesome post…love your acrostic!  i have to ask…WHAT is “squirmy” in that first pic?????


  • I want to know the squirmy pic too…. love your clothes drying on the line.  We moved just over a month ago and at my old place I had lines put up between trees here we have none in the yard so I have to purchase a clothes dryer like you have.  

  • @ObtainingMercy – @juejee –   Okay, you asked for it!  The “squirmy” in the first shot are the blood worms (larva of a midge) that are growing in the pond in our chicken yard.  They’re underwater critters and move almost like seaweed in the water.  Will discovered them, and they are really quite fascinating.  It was hard to get a good shot of them because they pull into the ground, whoosh fast as a blink, if there is any movement around them.  We’re hoping the chickens will do most of them in.

  •  I love the photo of the opposum! Is that the one that was under your house? Well now we know why all the racket – she had lots of babies to take care of! How sweet :o)

    Lisa in Texas :o)

  • Such a cute photo of the grandbaby!  I just wanted to say that I hope I didn’t offend you asking about your childrens’ illnesses in a previous post. I certainly didn’t mean to imply that I think your children sit at home all day and never leave the house, and I’m sorry if it came across that way! I just was curious what you thought since I think the exposure to germs may be different while running errands, interacting with smaller groups of friends, or even at church once a week than if a person is enclosed in a classroom with 20 other children for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week! Regardless, I hope everyone is starting to feel better.

  • @Becky –  Oh, goodness no, I wasn’t offended.  It’s hard to grasp emotions and motives through written words, and I hope you’ll forgive me if I seemed to over react.  I actually chuckled when I read your initial comment on the earlier post because everything we’ve “caught” this year, including the Chicken Pox, came from church.  We meet in a school facility, which we’ve just about outgrown, so if someone comes with a virus, it spreads through the church fairly quickly, passed either through the air from sneezing and coughing, or through hands passing the tithe bag or the communion trays. 

    Since my girls were in classrooms, one through 3rd grade the other through Kindergarten, I know how viruses can spread through a class room, too.  Pink eye and strep throat were our near constant companions in those days!  And thank you, everyone is feeling better, though Will’s asthma has reared its ugly head again as he recovered from his cold.  In fact, I’m home from church with him today because he had such a rough night.

    Have a blessed Lord’s Day, dear one! 

  • YEAH!!!!!!! Thank you Cheryl! Love that Grandbaby too! LOL, how sweet to make sure the Mama had her babies…I know it is the season for that so I was worried. Should have known you would know that, I am such a city girl LOL.

    Many Blessings 🙂


  • So great!! have a blessed day

  • I just happened to pop on Xanga and saw your post. So good to ‘see’ your life for a few minutes. I’m glad most of you are doing better except for Will’s asthma. Miss you, miss you! Catch me up sometime if you have a free moment. (((Cheryl)))

  • @Ace –   Caught the papa possum initially and mama and babies a couple of days later.  No wonder there was so much racket and noise under our house! 

  • Wonderful way to look at your day!  What a precious grandbaby – I can’t believe she is already a year old.  Have a blessed week!

  • Wow, see…I didn’t even know that they  would all be together as a family. I have only ever seen the Mama with all the babies (God Bless them). See, I would have found the family and fed them (like our gigantic insane squirels) until I had eight ninety pound opposums knocking on the front door everyday. I am not kidding. I have at least six squirles that throw themselves at my windows each morning (LITERALLY….jump on my patio furniture…take a running leap and smash their heads into the windows) to get my attention so I will feed them. The General declared a no more feeding rule..but was so amazed at how they revolted (one threw himself at the top of our glass sliding doors and slid slowly down while staring at us) that he lets me feed them again now. But not everyday..no, we do not encourage a welfare state here..not even with the wildlife LOLOLOLOL.

    Many Blessings 🙂


  • Sorry, I can’t spell worth a lick when I am tired and multi tasking…HEHE

    Many Blessings 🙂


  • @Ace – You crack me up “we do not encourage a welfare state here..not
    even with the wildlife”.  Squirrels can be insane!  We don’t feed the wildlife here, they fend for themselves quite well, often at the expense of some of my chickens!  

  • Ace, your comment needed to come with a warning!  I was laughing so hard my poor husband was about to haul me away until I read it out loud to him (which took multiple attempts!)

  • @The_Botzy_Blog – Ah, I see you remember the psycho squirrels from that camping trip.  And I know you appreciate Ace’s comment about feeding the animals!

  • LOL! Corinne (sorry if I spelled that wrong) glad to see you are doing well. Glad you liked that. See, I am a bleeding heart..libertarian. LOLOLOLOLOLOL I feed animals, not people LOLOLOLOL. Now though, I am worried about your chickens Cheryl and will be praying for the poor things.

    Many Blessings 🙂
