I think it is finally here to stay.
A while back Joel did this for me.
Yes, we disk our garden! And after the warm winter we had it needed it desperately. I have a feeling I’m going to be fighting the weeds especially bad this summer. Then my oldest son ran the rototiller over it, twice.
And now we have this…
The beginnings of our garden! The peas are up, along with the turnips, lettuces, spinach and radishes. Today if the weather holds I’ll be planting potatoes.
Yesterday it was so warm that we just couldn’t stay inside. The day wasn’t gorgeously sunny, it was rather overcast and looked like it could whip up a storm, but still after cold days and nights, God’s beautiful world beckoned us to sit and enjoy.
We spread out a blanket in the yard and had a picnic lunch.
And what’s a picnic without tea, not a true picnic, I say!
And then we all went out to visit the new babies that arrived 2 1/2 weeks ago.
They are just starting to open their eyes and will soon be leaving the nest box to sample the Alfalfa pellets and experiment with the water bottle.
After loving on the baby bunnies my daughter began begging to go frog catching. I told her I wasn’t sure that was a good idea since it entails a big swampy muck hole. I told her I didn’t want her to get all dirty. Catching frogs always ends up with major clean up detail for me.
She told me most earnestly that she would only get her fingers dirty and then she proceeded to give me her sweetest face in hopes that it would sway my decision.
And I’d show you a picture of her great frog catching adventure except that she ended up in just her t-shirt, underwear, and rubber boots. Scrapbook worthy, but not blog worthy.
After a bit of frog catching we headed back to the stream to clean off the swamp muck and to explore.
It was so peaceful back there. The water gurgling, the birds singing, my children chattering and the sun warming my face. AHHHH! Bliss!
Nothing’s better than spending a couple hours outside soaking up God’s glory. It is one of the best places for me to feel close to Him. A time spent in leisure of the body, but not of the soul.
Check out my shop! I’m having a sale!
****NEW**** I’ve been crocheting up these hair pretties for my daughter for several years now. I decided awhile back to add them to my shop. However, I am now just getting them done so that I can list them! These roses are crocheted right to a Goody no pull hair twisty. I use them for ponytail holders and also I place them on my daughters headbands. Making a super cute accessory!
Hope you can stop by and take a look!
