Hello......I am back HOME!

Good morning sweet ladies!

V and his first time driving a boat. Please keep praying for him....thank you!

It has been some time since I have checked in. Our whole family had some time for fam and fun this last weekend! It was so nice to not have to worry about anything for a few days. I started to post yesterday and everything kind of fell apart ;like a Monday on steroids, so here I am today......saying hello sweet ladies!!!!!!! 

 Yesterday I woke early to get chicken wire all around the inside of the big cage for the Momma Blue. I didn't want our cats to be able to get at them. Momma Blue had a bunch of babies hatch. Talk about a sweet Momma. She is doing well with her little baby ducks, but you can tell the babies aren't quite sure what she is saying. You know the eggs that were suppose to be the "Araucana eggs", that turned out to be duck eggs?  They are all happily hatching one at a 17 so far. Two hatched last night and are in the incubator still "fluffin out". I got them all taken care of and all the other babies on the farm. Then you add unpacking, washing clothes, watering the garden, picking tomato worms off my tomatoes and then on top of that you add helping our son's plant soybeans..... it was a fun long day and no post! It was so good to be back HOME!!!!

It was nice to be back on internet. Thank you for all the orders for the kits and pattern. Go to our store HERE, if you are interested.

I also have a kit available, which makes it easy to have everything you need to finish this project. Go HERE, if you would like to purchase. 

It got busier at about 10:30 last night we were finishing up feeding the horses.  Kayray (Kansas Rain), was acting real funny to me. I just knew something wasn't right........and it wasn't. She had colic. That meant she had to be walked......and walked.......and walked. Colic we have a friend that knows lots about horses. He helped a lot and then our daughter, had heard that you can take them in a horse trailer and drive them around. For some reason that gets them to start moving their bowels. It did help some. Poor girl, you could tell she wasn't feeling well. Finally she passed some urine. That did it! We were so thankful. By this time it was 1 a.m. I was tired and so was everyone else. A close to another day. It was good to lay my head on my pillow!

Father, I thank You for the vivid picture You paint in Your Word as You promise to cover me with Your feathers and grant me refuge under Your wings; Your faithfulness will be my shield and rampart. I need not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand, but You will keep destruction from coming near me (Ps. 91: 4-7). Praying God's Word, Beth Moore

I am thankful for all the lessons that a farm teaches you about God. The scripture opens up for me, as I encourage my children and grandchildren to walk in His ways. 

Wanted you to see this cute pic. I put it up on fb yesterday. The Asian beetles were everywhere at the lake! Biting us all the time. Saw this one morning.....they were eating some of my coffeecake. 

Here is my coffee cake recipe. I got it when I was in La Leche League all those years ago......precious memories,

Coffee Cake Hellivig (Finnish) 
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
2 1/2 c. unbleached flour
3/4 c. oil
1/4 tea. nutmeg
1/2 tea. cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. buttermilk
1 tea. soda
1 tea. baking powder

1 tea. cinnamon
1 c. pecans

Mix together sugars, flour, oil, salt and spices. 
TAKE OUT 3/4 c., add to it the cinnamon and chopped nuts for the topping; set aside.
Add to the remainder of the first mixture the eggs, buttermilk and soda. Beat well and add baking powder before putting in greased 9" x 12" pan. Sprinkle reserved topping on top and bake at 350 degree for 30 to 35 minutes.

The girls and I took it to the lake. Should have taken two pans! It is a recipe that never fails.

I hope you all enjoy your day.......I have taken you before the Father.....just know that He loves you a lot. Some might need to hear that, I know I do! Smile!

Hugs to your day sweet ladies....from the farm,
