I Am So Happy.......First Day Home...... FARM WORK!!!!!!

Please don't forget to sign up for our party at 

would love to have you enter!

Celebrating being back home on the farm.

Two and a half days left.


I AM SO HAPPY TODAY. I woke up at 7:30 this sunshine coming through my curtains. HOME. Now I have to tell you that I stayed up until midnight having a "party" with my daughters as we relaxed on the couch and watched Alaska with Sara Palin. I loved every bit of it. Doing complete nothingness!!!! with by precious girls. 

Then this morning I jumped out of bed. My honey said, "the horses are out". Ya know...... I didn't even think this was a problem........I  didn't have to rush around to get ready for work.......I could just throw on a sweatshirt and run out the door. No silly funny nonslip shoes.........didn't have to put on my bakers shirt.........heavenly..........hopped in the truck with my honey by my side (I so love this)......... the girls hopped in the car and off we went. 

 The girlies came willingly.........

even our littlest followed her momma out of the grateful that she was not hit by a car or truck. They were right on the highway. Thanking the Lord for His provisions. 

The weather is absolutely gorgeous today. Sunshine........going to be in the 70's. God has given me a gift of beautiful weather.........I will accept it as that, knowing that He is the giver of good gifts. 

Please continue to pray for the farmers.......they need rain in our area in Kansas. 

I am working in the garden today. I will also be getting our HOME in order with the girls, so that when we go back to the college kitchen........we will be ready. That will be another day.

While I am working in the garden......I thought I would take a bouquet of flowers out. I set the jar in a bucket by the garden. Pretty.  If you were here......... I would give it to you. I mean it! 

I will be doing a lot of summer, making things that I hope you will find enjoyment in..........can't wait. I love you sweet ladies and am so thankful that you were there this last year ........encouraging me on this last year. I have to admit it was a very tough learning time for me............I don't do well with change I just  found out this last year. I don't want to miss out what the Lord has for me.........and my precious family.

Joining in on the 13th

  7. Dear Linda, It's like taking a vacation without leaving my home when I get to see the beautiful photos of your farm :) :) :) I'm so glad that you get s ome time off, to do whatever, like stay up till midnight and watch Sarah Palin's Alaska ;) :) :) I'd love to watch that show sometime. So would my dad, because he spent many years in Alaska.

    I'm really glad that you were able to find your horses and that they weren't hurt. They sure are beautiful animals ;) :) :)

    let's see, lately I've been really cooking more at home and making LOTS of recipes from my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks ;) :) That's been really neat. Plus, my dad has become more active in helping with made-at-home meals. So that has been a real blessing.

    Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  8. Hey there Linda....sounds like your day has been full of many sweet Blessings...So glad!

  9. Linda, I'm so glad you are able to be home for the summer. What a wonderful gift for you! Around here we're busy getting ready for my son's high school graduation and then college next year. Yikes! Where did the time go? I'm not looking forward to him leaving for college in August. That's a real challenge for me.

    I hope you have a fabulous week to kick off your summer vacation!

  10. "Horses Out!" We have heard that too....Blessings from Wisconsin
