Hello sweet ladies,

Busy night tonight! A few hours ago I got a call from a friend. Our college boys were over at her son's house to help them move some of their furniture. They called me to see if I would like a convection stove and a big refrigerator!!!!!! Thought I might want it for my summer kitchen!!!!!! They are older pieces, but very nice. Can't wait to get them put into the porch (summer kitchen) that I will be making into my canning area. That way the house won't get all heated up! I will show pic's of the kitchen at later date.........when I get them moved in. 

I moved Waddle outside into a bigger cage. He was getting to big for his cage that I had him down in the little Milk House. He is doing great. Can you see the yellow baby feathers still on him? You can't tell how big he is for real, but he is a big duck! I don't know if it is a girl or a boy yet. 

I just counted how many days I have left until I come home for the summer..........20 days. Can you believe that? I can hardly wait. It is going to be so busy on our farm.......I will love it. The weather was so cold today. 37 degrees and cloudy. Tomorrow will be very the 50's and Saturday it will be in the 60's. GARDEN THYME!!!!!!!! I have not been able to get my potatoes in yet. Was going to some time back and we got rain.......that will help in my planting though. My tomatoes are growing so pretty inside and my basil too. 

Hope you are all doing well. Would love to hear from you!

Hugs and God bless you!!!!!


  1. Hello...A summer kitchen? You lucky girl! I remember when I was a little girl our neighbors had a summer kitchen and so did my Great Aunt Nell. They were wonderful. Always canned peaches, pears, cherries and vegetables were on the shelves out there to be taken to the basement for winter. Sometimes there were fresh baked cookies, too...especially Molasses!

    You are going to have the best summer!

  2. This should be a great help during the summer. I can imagine the wonderful things you can do there. Nothing like putting up fresh fruits and vegetables. I have sweet memories of making corn on the cob on the outside stove, then slathering butter on it and feasting until I was content. Oh the simple pleasures of farm living. Good night my neighbor!

  3. Hi Linda. How lucky to get a stove and fridge for your outside canning area.
    We still haven't planted out potatoes either, we had a few days of hot but it's gone back to cold again - will this winter ever end!!

  4. How nice that you get a stove in the summer kitchen. In our country lived (years ago) many farmers in the summer in the summer house. It was a small house in the yard of the farm.In my country is much wind and too cold for spring. I have sown vegetables in the garden, but do not have a greenhouse. So, I hope that it gets a bit warmer. Kind regards, Margriet

  5. @ Runner 61, Thank you for your lovely stories, I read them with pleasure. It reminds me of the little house on the prairie story.
    Blessings, Margriet

  6. So glad you are the recipient of the stove and fridge. I now you will put it to good use.

  7. Waddle has gotten so big! Is he/she friendly? Can't wait to see your summer/canning kitchen all done up!
    Have a good week-end Linda,
    Hugs and blessings!

  8. My friend Alyn always says those blessings are the best when someone gifts us with something so wonderful that we need and have prayed for! Wonderful news! That Waddle is so sweet!


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
