Me, : )
Hello everyone, I am home!!!!!!!!!! It felt so good this morning to walk around my farm and take care of my little animal collection! It has been a long week, but a very precious one, that I will tuck in my heart. Working alongside my honey was the best! The girls came and helped at different times and also kept the house running. Homeschooling has given me the opportunity to teach the girls how to care for our home. They cleaned, washed clothes, hung them on the line, put them away, baked, planned meals and did the chores. I can trust them with everything. I am so thankful for them and their willingness to serve our family. They are the sweetest girls. I have much to get done now that I am back home. Finish some projects that need to be finished up and today will enjoy 2 of our grandchildren., Yea for me! Thank you to so many of you who wrote me notes of encouragement. When I would get home late at night there were such words of sweetness and it was so appreciated. I didn't get to do much visiting on your blogs, but I will catch up now. I wrote a little yesterday after the job was done. Here is what I wrote.
It is a little after 4:30 on Tuesday and our job is finished. I can’t tell you how good it feels to have the fence built. It was fun, but today it was hot again and I just want to be in my home. smile! We worked for a little under a week. We learned a lot about fencing and when we need to build one for our farm it will come in handy! Our two daughters came in today and helped us. That was so nice! We giggled and laughed and that made the day go faster for this Momma.
I planted some flowers for the owners. I am trusting that the Lord will bless them.
Taylor and I went and picked a few blackberries on their property. They are so nummy! Need more then what we got to make jam. In Alaska our blueberries were very tart. I love berries that way and the blackberries seem to be the same. They will make the best jam! When I was a young girl, my girlfriend and I would pick blueberries, then we would build a fire. We would take a coffee can fill it half full of blueberries and cover with water. Then we would cook it over the open fire (I wonder if we washed the berries, if not we ate a lot of worms), then we would add some (a lot) of sugar and it would make syrup for our sourdough pancakes. What a fun memory to think on today. Oh my, I would love to go back and have one day like that. I think I should give you my "Best Blueberry Muffins". OKAY, here it is!
The Best Blueberry Muffins
1/3 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
2 cup flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
Topping 1 Tb. sugar with 1/4 tea. cinnamon
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes
Prepare muffin cup. In medium sized bowl beat oil and sugar, then add eggs one at a time beating after each addition. Beat in vanilla, baking powder, salt and then the milk. Fold in flour and blueberries, last. Spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle with topping. This recipe was given to me by a special friend along time ago. It is the best. I don't see why you couldn't substitute blackberries or raspberries for the blueberries. This is a nummy recipe for sure! Enjoy! Love bunches, Prairie Flower FArm
Ick, I just had a tick walking on my neck. Fine way to end my job! Creepy little bug! I am thankful. I didn’t have any attach themselves to me other than that one at the beginning of the job! Thank you Jesus.
So glad to touch base with you all today. I have tons to get done today! Tonight I will do some blog hopping! Can't wait to see what has been going on!
I will be planing a party to celebrate something! How about a celebration of. . . . . . . No Reason Party? I am sooooooo glad I am home today! ! ! ! and so glad you all are a part of my LIFE! You are God's special gifts! He is so thoughtful to do that for me, us!
Love and hugs, not from the job site, but from my little farm
in the middle of Kansas.
