Starting another Week, I LOVE WEEKENDS!

Hello sweet ladies,
Tressa brought 3 gold fish home the other day. It was so funny. We put them on the floor by Cassie and she just loved them. Was so cute to watch her. She would sit and sit and watch forever!

Can we just be friends?

She got thirsty and................

started licking the water. Tressa started shooting pictures. We thought that all the cat lovers would enjoy seeing the pictures. She didn't hurt them at all. She just shared their water.

Thank you all for your prayers. Our weekend was so much fun. The girls and I worked around the farm and in the kitchen. We did up 8 gallons of tomatoes and put them in the freezer and 2 1/2 gallons of blueberries put up. Can't wait to make some Blueberry Farm Pies. I will put the recipe up for you all. They are so easy to make.
Oh Heather I didn't get pictures of the Peach Farm Tarts. They were so cute. I will do that also.

At work today I will be making Strawberry Scones and Blueberry Scones! Not sure what else, but I have some ideas to try. I need to have 4 desserts tomorrow. I think I will be doing some more yeast breads also. I will take pictures.

My honey reads my emails. When I am writing I sometimes forget that. He wrote me back yesterday! Just like any other blogger! How fun is that? It was such an encouragement to me. Thought I would write in my blog journal (that is what I am doing with my blog, are you?)
This is what he said,

Yes, you made it through the week and not surprisingly, brought joy to many at the college. The Lord has you covered, and gave you some special gifts as reminders that His plans are for your victory.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you,plans to give you hope and a future.

Keep looking to Jesus, He has alreadly made the way; And He will not disappoint you.

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Keep looking for those "treasures hidden in darkness".
I will be right there with you, my Pretty Prairie Flower.

Hmmmmmm I love this man! Thank you Mr. Phil! SMILE!

He is a precious man man..............he is protecting his family. I am soooooo thankful that
we have had the chance to grown together all those years before we left our home to go work!

I also received a sweet comment yesterday from a sweet blogger friend, that I have personally never met and she told me that she pray for me through out the day all last week. She even got on her knees before our God on my behalf. I wept! I know so many of you have personally taken my precious family before the Lord!!!!!!!! I am in awe! I love you all.......... like you were my real family! I truly mean that! Thank allllllll of you for leaving me all the precious comments last week. You helped me want to even try in such a hard time. Today I feel better. God showed me that He had things in control. I am so thankful I have Him to lead me.

Thank you Gail and Mary! I read your comments this made me smile and feel very very loved. Thank you!

I have a little figurine that says,

Wherever you go, always bring your own Sunshine,

I say Sonshine! I like that!

I received a phone call yesterday from a farmer friend. His precious wife died last year. He said he had a big old picture window with lots of panes. He said she would have wanted me to have it. I am soooooooo excited. Something to look forward to after work! I will put a picture up of it tomorrow!

KNOW that I will be taking you before the KING of KINGS today!

Blessings and hugs from the farm,


  1. LOVE those kitty pics!! :-) How fun...maybe not so much for the goldfish.

    My husband reads my blog posts. He's my biggest fan. :-)

    God bless!

    P.S. You're inspiring me to go make scones!

  2. How funny...the perfect drink for a kitty! LOL

    Linda, I feel the same way about my blogging friends. They are REAL to me. I truly believe God causes our paths to cross for a reason. It's my prayer that I connect with more wonderful people on a deeper level every day.

  3. Dear Linda:
    What a creative day you have planned today, my friend! I'll look forward to watching your week unfold.
    Blessings to you and yours

  4. Linda..I just know today will be a wonderful 'sunshine' day for you and your family. I continue to hold you up in my prayers. Yes, I use my blog as a journal also. Oh yes... and won my sweet "Ginger the Owl"!!

  5. Hello Linda!
    I have tried all last week to comment but sometimes my computer picks and chooses whom I may visit or post a comment to ~ you were the one last week! Oh the joys of dial-up! :~O
    Know I have been praying for you and your sweet family like so many others have been.
    Cassie is so cute, drinking down the fishies water so she can be a little closer to them! ;~P
