My prayers for the people of Manchester, and the latest victims of terrorism. May God strengthen and comfort those who survived, and although I’d like to say a lot about the people who committed the crime, I will let the vengeance belong to God.


Scourge of the Lawn Mowers Revisited

May 22, 2017

I mowed the back and one side of the yard today, and for once it was a semi-pleasant experience. Due to the ridiculously unreliable nature of our other lawn equipment, we purchased an electric mower (battery operated). It was great, and will be even better when we get a second battery, so that while one is charging, we can mow. I only had to pull out the gas push mower at the very end. No stalling, no fumes, no pulling until my shoulder was shot, no spark plugs popping off and I get to keep my first born.
SO, if you’re like us, and you can’t get the lawn mowed without rubbing a few bones together and slapping someone with a dead chicken, do yourself a favor and buy an electric mower.


A Bit of Art

While out and about this weekend, I bought this unpainted pie plate set.  The bottom is what it all looked like when I bought it. I still have another coat to go on the top.

Me (to my youngest, Tessa): You want to watch a movie?

Tessa: No, I don’t want to watch a movie.

Me: Why not? We could find a movie to relax, kick back and fall asleep to.

Tessa: No, if I’m going to watch a movie, I want to watch a movie, not fall asleep to it.

Me: You know nothing about relaxing.


I Love Farm Living

One of the best things about living on a farm is eating fresh food. Today, while on a walk, we picked a few blackberries. Enough to make a pie!

Scary Business

May 18, 2017

Today I was doing a search for Halloween decorations and props (hey, this is a LATE start for me), and I noticed that one of the pictures was from when we were in our other house. Not surprising, since I post a ton of pictures that time of year. What WAS surprising was that the source was not from me. This made me curious, so I went down the rabbit hole and found page after page of the same image that people were using for various reasons. One of the links actually “cited” the picture source, and it wasn’t me. heh Very interesting…
