Thank you!!!!!!!!

Hello sweet ladies, 

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!


  1. Hot dogs!!! I can post a comment...again! WooHooo!

    Can't wait to hear the latest on the adoption! I have an idea, too. I'll figure out details and get with you.

    Yesterday was fun, wasn't it?!!!

    Congrats on winning!!! You deserve to win, being the "winner" you are.


  2. You just love me Miss Prairie Maid! It is a special thing too! Yes yesterday was so fun. I enjoyed getting to know everyone a little better. I am trying to figure a way to share the DVD. Thought it might be fun to have a signup and have ladies who want to watch it, sign up and then pass it from one lady to another. Each lady would have one week. Then they would pass it on to the next lady and so on. The last lady would send it back. I will try to figure this out so all could enjoy. Will talk later!
    Love, me

  3. I have a prayer request, my daughter gave birth via c-section to my new grandson he was early. Just prayers for the speedy and health recovery so he can go home with mom and dad and big sister! thankx in advanced, Jilene

  4. Nona I would love to pray!

    Heavenly Father we come in Jesus' precious name, asking for a speedy and healthy recovery for Nona's little grandson, so he can come home to his family. We know that you are involved in his little life now and we give you thanks. We ask that you would cover the Doctors and Nurses.......give them insight on his needs. We pray that he will grow up and come to know you at an early age as his Savior and walk with you all the days of his life. Thank you that he is a gift to his family and Grandma.. We praise your name Lord above all other names and thank you that you are our Abba.

    In Jesus name we pray this. Amen

    Thank you Nona for contacting us.........what a precious thing! Please let us know when he comes home!!!!!!!!!!

    Hugs to you and your family, Linda
