Good morning sweet ladies,
We got a little rain last night. The girls and I went and let it fall on our faces. It smelled so good!!!!!!!! Not enough to do anything but get the leaves wet......that is okay........we are learning to trust. We also heard thunder..........beauty to our ears. We love storms......not bad ones though.
I am needing a break today......going to treat myself and take some time to enjoy my day. Going to do a little sewing, baking.......... and get a little recharged. It has been a rough last few weeks with life! Please continue to pray for Hannah and Mark after the loss of their little girl......everyone has gone home......now they will learn how to live without her presence here on earth. Can't imagine the heartache. Thank you! Just heard from Hannah, Bella the little three year old is missing Ellianna.
Started a little patty pan seed...........love how you can put a seed in the ground, water it and He does what He does best.......a MIRACLE. Our garden is going through some stress.........how is yours? It has been a tough year for so many. So thankful I can trust the Lord for His provisions. My tomatoes got such a late start, but we keep watering them and they are at least holding on. Mr. Honey said I have a few little tomatoes.........will go and check it out with camera when I am finished here!
My girls said the other day the thing they have missed most this summer are the flowers we usually have. There are hardly any for our table. We have always enjoyed putting them all over our home........but not this year.
Today I just need some sweet fun.......so I hope you will join in with me!!!!!
Pretend I have invited you to my little Potter's Shed for something sweet......... I set a table for you. As we are eating I ask you a few questions, so we can get to know each other a little bit better. I have some questions that I would ask. Please copy the questions.......take off my answer and add yours. You can say as much as you would like on each question. Oh my if this was true that I could ask you to our farm..........what a treat! Right now it is so hot outside.........but we will ignore that!
1. Where were you born what was it like? Juneau, Alaska. My family homesteaded when I was 8. Our Daddy was a cat skinner.....heavy equipment operator. 48 acres right at the base of a mountain and close to a creek. We had to raise animals on your homestead. We had chickens, ducks, geese, a palomino horse named Sundown and a jersey cow named Suzy. We didn't have electricity for some time. My momma had a red handled hand pump in the kitchen. I would love to have that now.
We used Coleman Kerosene Lanterns in the evenings......I can remember the sound. We had an outhouse......Momma would take us out.......always had to be careful of bears. They were always around. I loved this time of my life. I remember my Daddy making a huge swing with a log from tree to tree to attach the swing on. I remember being able to fly so high on that swing. I had a sister and brother that I share our growing up with. Another sweet memory I have was when it snowed. You would wake up and the ground was covered. In the moon light the little forest mice must have had a party on the top of the snow.......you would see a line (the tail) and little feet marks on each side of the tail.......all over the top of the snow, no kidding there were so many little mouse trails.
We had lots of blueberry bushes by our home, guess that is why I love blueberries so much. I could eat them in the summer thyme.........all I wanted. My girlfriend and I would build fires and cook blueberry syrup in a coffee can. Adding sugar to make the syrup. Probably ate a lot of worms from the blueberries in my day! Smile!
2. Do you have any favorite memories when you were young? When my family moved to Juneau my grandparents lived in a little log cabin..... not far from the
Can you see the icebergs and the Mendenhall Glacier in the back?
Mendenhall Glacier. It was tucked in the woods and I loved it. On the back porch there was a old freezer that was not electric. In part of it Grandma kept the ice to keep things frozen. Our whole family would go together up to the glacier and get ice. Little icebergs we called them. I can just smell the woodsy smell and cold crisp water. We would always had to get some of the ice for ourselves to suck on.
Nagoonberries were one of my favorite berries that you would find at their place. You would ] find them on the ground in the moss in the woods. They were a real treat. I can taste the jam now. Grandma always had sourdough starter on her kitchen counter used for our sour dough pancakes. Can also remember Grandma Reid's Pendleton Woolen blankets on the beds. Wish I had a day with my family like that again.
3. Would you take coffee or tea? I have been drinking a lot of sun tea these days.........with sugar........have to have sugar!
4. If you could have ANY wish.......what would it be? Mine would be that my sister and I could sit and talk with our Momma. Last night I went to see Momma at the nursing home. She can't talk, I don't think she is recognizing me anymore. I miss her........a lot! If you have your Momma with.......enjoy her.
5. Favorite Pastime? Sewing, quilting, crafting! Oh and baking with my girls. Oh and driving around with my honey somewhere......checking fields and such!
6. If you could ask me a question........what would it be?
Okay lets pretend we are all introducing our selves out in the Potter's Shed. Wish it wasn't pretend!!!!!!!!!
Today I am hooking up with Amy over at
