How is everyone liking the day light savings? It is a bit hard when you live on a farm.....work outside the home and have chores. How does everyone do it? Smiling! It gets dark now at 6 something and that makes for some hustling as soon as we get home.
My babies are growing.....they are still in the house, nice a toasty warm. Thought you might like to see. All the other eggs that Missy Blue had (she stole the nest from Miss Millie) are not good. The girls are not sitting on the nest now.......so glad! Can't believe I just said that! The bowl they are sitting in is 5 1/4" across. Gives you an idea on how tiny they are. Pure sweetness!
While we were gone yesterday a friend and her husband dropped this off at our farm. All day on Saturday my sweet man and I cleaned the area for this. It measures 12' x 15'. So excited about it. The floor is wonderful. Only one board is warped. Not a problem to get that fixed. I am having fun dreaming. All evening I have been thinking what would be the best way to use it. I have thought of a bigger chicken coop.....green house......and seriously thinking about using it for my outdoor kitchen. Remember when I got the stove from a friend and started canning outside this last summer and early fall? I could have sooooo much fun with this. Build a long table.....grandkids sitting on benches.....cutting up tomatoes and such......making memories!!!!! Even thought I could give classes on canning. Isn't it fun to just let your dreams go off in your head? I will be sharing as I dream about what I want to do. I have a really neat paned window that is probably around 4' square. I bought it at an antique store some time back and have saved it for just the right place. Thinkin' that I might just have the space. If I use this for a outdoor kitchen I will want it screened in. So the bugs can't bother.
Here are our precious children. Yesterday was a special time of celebrating our Tressa's birthday with fam. I shared on my PFF. facebook that after our time of celebrating we went back to where we had parked our cars in broad daylight. Our son Jarad......second from the right.....noticed that his truck was not in the parking lot. Felt so weird as we really could not find it anywhere. Long story short it was stolen. Lots of special things were inside his truck. His smallest children were so sad and wanted their truck back. It was hard to watch......but we kept pointing them back to the fact that God knew.......and understood. WE told them that we needed to trust Him with the situation. They are doing better today, but it is still creepy! They were afraid because their daddy's wallet was in the truck and whoever stole the truck would have their address. I shared on fb for prayer. So many prayed and for that we are so grateful. Can't imagine having to live through this without the Lords help. Not only did this happen......after we got the children in different cars.......we were driving down the road and our son's car that we were driving ran out of gas. It said we still had a 1/4 of a tank.....wrong.....that is when it is empty. So here we were stranded 2 miles from where the gas station was and we just have to giggle. Couldn't believe it! We kept thinking about the sermon that morning. WE talked about it alllll day.... off and on. The sermon was on "when people are mean". How do we respond. Sometimes you can't do anything about it and you have to let the Lord work out the details and pray pray pray! Here we were stranded along a very busy freeway.....in the dark......but the stars were shining!!!!!! It was a good time of sharing. The scripture reference for the sermon was.
Ephesians 4:20-32 take the time to read it...you will be blessed. It was just for us! It gave us opportunity to put it into practice. Soooooo the day turned out to have many lessons in it for all of us! Don't think we will forget the day........EVER!
Hugs and thank you so for being a part of Prairie Flower Farm blog.......you ladies are so precious. We also thank you for the prayers. I continue to pray for you all!
