Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Oh, This and That

Not sure if I’m feeling reflective or just a little rambly right now.  I had my eye dr. appointment this morning & his wife lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.  Terrific guy with 3 little boys.  It’s just heartbreaking.  Sometimes it’s hard to see the rainbow through all of the rain.  It’s things like that and Lauren’s 5 year battle with agressive cancer tumors that put my minor complaints in the gutter.  Honestly, what do I really have to complain about?  So . . .  I won’t!!!

I went into the sewing room on Saturday to start on the girls’ new bedroom curtains & started cleaning instead.  I ended up with a huge bag of fabric to get rid of & tons of scraps very useable for quilting.  It got me thinking about garage sales.  So, I called my friend, Heather, to see if she’s going to have one this summer.  Sure enough – YES!  So, I begged my way in and promised to bring my own table.  Now I have to sort through all of those school books that we haven’t used, aren’t going to use, or will never use again!  The up side is I have a really tidy sewing room right now.  I also have the usual huge pile of projects (but I hid or got rid of most of them!!!).  I have a tote bag I’ve been meaning to make for my Mom for about 10 years!  By the time I get to it she will forget all about reading that last sentence!  I have sleep pants I need to make for Kristen before they go camping in August.  I have cute shorts for Kurt and summer is almost over (the good thing with Kurt is that like Karra, he never gets any bigger around!).  And I bought a new skein of yarn and went to put it away and thought – I can’t wait until knitting season!  The sweater that I wanted to get to a certain point before my vacation so that I could ask my Grandma about it, isn’t anywhere near where I needed it to be – oh, well.

I got to show Joel where I want to put the pasture gates & we talked about the chicken coop & run, etc.  We will eventually (but probably not this winter) put the chickens in a coop in the barn and then keep the one we have for either a summer brooder or for turkeys.  I think we could comfortable house 2 or 3 turkeys in the existing coop.  That would be fun to have our own free range turkey for Thanksgiving!  I need a few more questions answered from my friends at Hobby Farms & we’ll be good.  I’ve been told that, yes, the animals probably will eat the willow trees in the pasture.  RATS!

It looks like there’s a storm coming in from the south.  Kristen is supposed to have a riding lesson in less than an hour.  Hope it’s not tundering by then.

And That’s What’s Happening (Reflectively) on the Homestead.

  1. I need to get started on some sewing projects. I need to gather some fabric. I think I have some in the closet but not sure I’m brave enough to dig for it 🙂 Blessings! ~ Nikki
