SNAKE!

It’s been hard to get to the computer over the last few days. We’ve had so much going on….the days have gotten away from me before I’ve been able to write. This morning we’re saddened by the passing of our sweet little hamster, Snickers. Last night she apparently had injured her leg while climbing around her cage. We knew when…

Don’t Close Your Eyes

I thought you ladies might like this….this is what happens when you doze off on a Sunday afternoon in our home! Yes, Paul is under there…somewhere! : )

Our Little Visitor

We had this little visitor today. He stopped by to watch Courtney hang our laundry…I wanted to post this, so our regularly scheduled laundry pic will have to wait until tomorrow. I find God in so many things around me. I’m not someone who enjoys these things very close to me….definitely not in my home (ask me how I know)…..but,…

Clothesline, Day 2

This is my clothesline, closed. To be making such an impact on my home keeping in general, it really isn’t that big. With that said, when we are on the land that we plan on having for the rest of our lives, I would like to have iron T-bars ran, stretching the span of a good distance so that I…

Clothesline, Day 1

This is a picture of my laundry line. I had been asked by someone if I could post a picture. It isn’t much, but man it does a great job! It looks so small…the box says that it can hold three loads of laundry, but I’ve found that it actually holds quite a bit more. It’s been great. I can’t…

Puppy is Clean!

Two meetings down and one left for Paul today. I’ve talked to him a few times and things seem to be going well for him. I’m so glad. He works so hard, it’s nice to see things begin to come together. Today, I’m working on p.j.’s for Jessica. They’ve been cut out and sitting in my sewing basket for quite…

Sour Dough

This is Jessica, in number two of the three new dresses. This one is my favorite. I can always tell that she likes them because she will twirl and twirl! What a wonderful “little girl” thing! One of the fun things that I wanted to do with this website is use it as a place to exchange information between women.…

Sprouts!

Sunflowers! I can’t believe that they have sprouted so quickly but here they are! They look like they are going to be healthy little plants. I can’t wait until they are big enough to transfer out of our little temporary home for them, into the yard! Our weekend was good. I worked away on Jessica’s dresses and finally finished the…

Vandolf is Back!

Oh, the joy of Friday….after a long week, something about this day just makes me really sleepy! We picked our van “Vandolf the White” up from the car shop this morning. It still has some sounds that I’m a little uneasy with, but it runs! Paul is going to take it back next week for a quick check up. Needless…

T-Shirt Dress

Today, we are planning on (hopefully!) finishing Jessica’s dresses. I’ve let Courtney do most of the sewing for all three of them. She is doing a great job and T-shirt dresses give her a good start on basic sewing skills with the reward of seeing something that she has done well enough her sister can actually wear it…something that it…

Mosaics, Day 2

Day 2 of Mosaics….I took the day off yesterday! LOL! Today, we are going to apply grout. Please do not attempt to apply grout until your adhesive is thoroughly dry. This can, and does take some muscle! This is Jessica’s project, but I do have to help at least enough to make sure that the grout makes it down in…

15 Years!

The last 15 years have been the best of my life. I was blessed by God to have found the one person on Earth who really does complete me. Today is my 15th wedding anniversary. These are my thoughts to my sweet: My Dearest Paul, You are the love of my life and it has been a joy and a…
