We are still having issues, but overall our connection is somewhat better. Mostly, the last few weeks I have been busy with the grandkids and company. That and the fact I nearly have to arm wrestle the bigger kids for my turn on the computer, I need to convince them, this isn’t some type of “timeshare” program.;)
If you are new here, hi! Welcome! I will visit you as soon as possible. Summer is a busy time around here – there’s the garden, separating mamas from babies (and teaching new mamas the ways of the milking barn), canning and freezing ~ and always with lots of company! I love summer!
*Update* ~As I post this, I am also putting up corn! It has taken me three days to get this written. I know, I am slow, but really?!! I wanted to go ahead and post, so pictures will have to follow later. Hugs!
FOR TODAY... from Cheryl's Daybook
Tuesday, June 22nd & 23rd, 2010
Outside my window... ~ it is mid afternoon (98 degrees), the sun is bright, but there is a nice (although warm) breeze. I’ve been watching through the window as dh and the boys work to get the swimming pool set up (finally). I am happy, because this will keep them out of the pond ~ I hope!
I am reminded… ~ a few years back, I thought going to the pond was wonderful. (Maybe wisdom does come with age; or maybe in our youth we are fearless!)
I am thankful for... ~ Like last week, I am still thankful for bedtime! (LOL) And let me tell you, bedtime seems to come later and later. We had old friends over last night. We visited until the wee hours of the morning. We are very blessed by the friendships we have.
I am wearing... ~ I am still in my pj bottoms and a navy blue tee-shirt (see above for why). Whatever would the ‘Fly Lady’ say? Probably, why on earth did you have company so late? (I have managed to pin my hair up, as it is so hot when I go outside.)
I am remembering... ~ summers spent on my great aunt and uncle’s farm and how much I loved being a part of everything there. I pray the children who spend time here will also treasure their memories.
I am going... ~ to be putting corn in the freezer tomorrow, Thursday. It looks very good this year.
I am currently reading... ~ Believe it or not, I haven’t read anything this week, with the exception of the mail, my new MaryJane’s Farm magazine, and my Bible.
I am hoping... ~ for a sudden burst of energy that will allow me to have the perfectly cleaned house, all the veggies put up, the garden weeded and the lawn mowed. (Dreaming, I know.)
On my mind... ~ the oil spill and what this means to all the people in the Gulf States.
Noticing that... ~ My red hibiscus! It is gorgeous!;)
Pondering these words...~“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10
From the kitchen... ~ BBQ chicken, beans, fresh garden veggies and homemade ice cream.
Around the house... ~ it looks like a disaster area! (from last week, but there hasn’t been much improvement.)
I am praying for… ~ our children and family members, and those who have requested prayer. I am praying Proverbs 9:10 for our children, because we all need a healthy dose of wisdom.
I am creating… ~ an oasis, where stress is not an option.
One of my favorite things… ~ sitting in the garden, enjoying the moonlight and sounds of the night.
From my picture book... ~ Pictures coming *I promise!*
