stop a smell the wildflowers

We drive this road often.  I always think to myself, “Photo op.”  Today, I decided to take one minute (that’s all it took) to pull over and snap some shots.

Carpe Diem.

The kids thought we were getting pulled over by a cop.  Thanks a lot guys!  I haven’t had a ticket in years, but we’ve gotten plenty of fix the light tickets, cracked window repair, ect.

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.”—Psalm 19:1-3

farm life

So far we have bust our tails to get the farm ready for gardens, chickens, and a fleet of children.  We’ve moved in many of our belongings already.  Saturday is the big move.

We have discovered that most of the 30+ trees and bushes on the property are on a drip system, yay! The kids discovered some fun things as well.  If you’re into that type of thing that is.  We’re plugging away at the endless work, and learning the land.  Don’t forget to subscribe to the farm blog in the side bar for all the latest happenings.


springing up

Spring is just around the corner…and not a moment too soon as far as I’m concerned.  We have enjoyed a very mild winter, but I’m ready to work in the yard with warm sun on my back. 

Spring is popping up and showing its face around the yard.  God is so good.  Spring is just another ways He shows that.  I love how everything looks dead one week and the next life is thriving.
