Thank you for all the fun stories you shared with me yesterday on my questions. It was really fun to have pictures in my head on your life story. I think we all got to know each other a little better. I know it took time for you to do it, but we all became better friends I think.
This morning I received a phone call from my Tonya. Things are moving even faster than what we thought on the adoption for Vitaliy. I will be sharing more on my blog tomorrow on Building Our Homes Together. Sharing about what the Lord is doing personally in our Home.......our steps of faith.....in bringing him HOME.
I also received an email this morning...........I won a giveaway. I can hardly believe it. It blessed my heart big time! Amy over at Homestead Revival Homestead had her linky up yesterday. I went over and spent a little time to visit some of the blogs that had come to link up. One blog was called "The DIY Gourmet click here. I loved the little photo for her link up.....she was having a giveaway! I thought I would go ahead and signup even though there was only one more day. Thinking I wouldn't probably wouldn't win........do you think that? Well I can't wait to watch this with my girls. I am sure we will learn a lot. She said that the DVD is 120 minutes long and has information on canning (meats, potatoes and tomatoes), making noodles the Amish way), culturing buttermilk and sour cream, AND has a bunch of recipes using their canned goods! It also comes with a recipe book, that has all the recipes on the DVD! I can't wait......to watch it with my girls. We do already know how to can, but you can always learn something from others.
I will have Tress help me tonight get The Homesteading for Beginners Volume One, Two and Three on my side Amazon bar. Anytime you order from there, we receive money for Vitaliys adoption. Thank you so much, if you ever do make an order.
The DIY gourmet blog, has a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on her July 25 post. You can go check it out.......tell her I told you about her, if you don't mind. Looks very good! She sounds like a precious Momma......you might make her day if you said hello. I know you make mine.
Well sweet peas......I am off getting some idea's ready for some serious fundraising ideas. If you didn't do the questions yesterday......think about it today. I said you can ask me any question that you would like. You can do that on this post, if you want. Kim from Marmee's Pantry just left a comment and asked why I left Alaska.......well you know when you have love in your heart.........you will go anywhere. I loved my sweet man.........he had gone to Alaska to hunt.........."moose".......we say he bagged a deer.......I am not a moose! Heehee! Love takes you places........I am so glad he found me in Alaska. He is my sweet love of my life. I still would love to be back in Alaska........but moving the farm would be a little hard! My honey didn't know Jesus.........I did. Not the way I would say for anyone to get involved in marriage, with one that is a believer and one not. Not scriptural......but God was so merciful to us both, it doesn't always turn out that way!
Hugs to your day and know I love you all bunches!
