Hello sweet ladies,
I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday......I did. Worked on my pattern, went outside and planted my lettuce patch, got to sew to my hearts content......picked up the house...went to the hen house and gathered eggs.......alllllll day long, did things that were dear to my heart. Grandkids were coming to spend the night...best part of my Saturday!!! Vitaliy was here and he and his brother Ian played the wii. All I heard from V while he was playing was "Dude", "Dude", "wyyy uuuu do dat dude, he is so fun to have in our Home. Please keep praying for his adjustment to school. Thank you!
I was out in the Potter's Shed working and while I was planting my lettuce I thought, "it was about time that we had another Prairie Flower Farm Seed Swap! We had such a sweet time with the Tea swap! ANYONE CAN SIGN UP! Please let me know, if you don't want overseas. If you want to pass the word around you can use the picture at the top. I will be posting this over on my facebook also!

Thought I would show you what I did yesterday. I went to the potters shed that has the feed trough that I use for part of my garden......remember the place I planted my garlic?
See how well it is doing? Pure Sweetness.......a gift from our Father.......He thought of everything!!!!! For our needs!
Thanking Him........big time!
At the other end of the trough I leveled out the dirt and straw that I had from last year. No weeds! Yeah! I took some potting soil and put a layer on top.
I first sprinkled my spinach seeds............
then butternut crunch and red lettuce. Sprinkled a layer of dirt on the top. Using my water can I watered over the top lightly. Then I put a layer of straw.
Now this part I have to explain........have you ever noticed that if you have a glass that is over the ground and then if you lift it even with snow around it, it will have green little weeds under it? It is kind of like a little greenhouse. Well that happened to me last year out in the garden. I thought why can't I take and do the same kind of thing with a plastic box? So that is what I did on top of my lettuce. I am trying it and I will let you know how it works. When it gets real cold at night I will put some plastic over the top of that. I have to put the screens on top so it keeps out my Girlies and Guys.....they can tear up a garden so fast! It was fun to get some dirt under my nails........spring is so close ladies!
Found this on Pinterest click.........doing it! I tried this last year, but this year I will get bent branches........looks cuter!
One more thing........I found this on the web.........neat idea if you have a small space.
click and go and listen.
Listening to the scriptures this morning......it is traveling through out our home........hopefully landing on little souls........knowing the Holy Spirit is doing what He does best.......He will change the hearts that are listening.
My grandchildren are so precious to me. I will pour into them while I can. One day they hopefully will look back and "know" their Grammie loved Jesus!
Please a comment here on this post if you want to do this.....it will encourage ladies to maybe want to also. I can't wait to see who will enter.
Hugs to your home........from our farm......trusting your SONday of worship is precious!
P.S. I left best for last........today is my sweet man's birthday...........love of my life......will heart him for..........evvAAA!
Our family is coming out to celebrate his life.........
SWEET MAN, when you read this?
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE
SWEETEST MAN ON EARTH!!!!!!
