Spring Is Here

spring flower 09

Spring is here and I am so glad. The weather is getting warmer and a few things are blooming, like jasmine and the dogwood trees. Another sign of spring is that we worked out in the garden on Saturday and planted some lettuce. Gardens are so much work, but so worth it. There is nothing like home grown lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, etc. I can’t […]

Gratituesday

If you are a regular reader to my blog you know that I have had a busy couple of weeks helping out at my husband’s office. I don’t usually work much at the office. I shop for supplies, help pay some bills, and run errands. But that is it. I have not had much to do with the everyday work for about eight years. So […]

I thought I needed to post something about healthy eating, since I have been posting a bunch of unhealthy recipes. Yes, last week I fixed a lot of unhealthy food but overall I have been trying to cook healthier. I decided it would be a good time to combine my Kitchen Tip with GratiTuesday. One of the things that I have struggled with in trying […]

Today I am grateful to have a six year old boy. Let me explain one reason why. My husband has been really busy lately. He has not had time to get much done around the house and property. We got rid of the last of this years hogs a few weeks ago. I now have a freezer full of pork, which I am very thankful […]

GratitTuesday

Last week we had a missionary family with seven kids stay with us. We have had this family stay with us several times. I always enjoy the time with them. They have given so much to serve Christ in a foreign country. Each time we have had missionary families stay with us it has served as a reminder to us of how easy our life […]

GratiTuesday

I think we need to remember to be thankful for the little things. So often we don’t realize how good we have it. We complain about things, we get bored with things, we get tired of the same things. For me this happens a lot with food and cooking. I get tired of cooking the same things, I get tired of eating the same things. […]

Asthma

For Grati Tuesday I am thankful for Dr.’s and medical care. My daughter was recently diagnosed with asthma. I have posted about it several times already. She has shown no allergies but is sensitive to chemicals. I am now trying to incorporate more whole grains and healthy eating into our diet. But what I am thankful for is the fact that the Dr.’s figured it […]

First Lettuce of theYear

gratituesday2

For my first Gratituesday I wanted to post about lettuce and gardening. We picked our first lettuce from our garden this week. It was actually the first thing we have gotten from our garden this year. So I am thankful for homegrown lettuce and our garden. I am so glad that we have the space for a big garden, but I am also thankful for […]
