Sister passed away

After a long battle with cancer my sister Angie passed away. It will be hard to imagine Angie not being here with us after 39 years of life. Even though it is hard to see her go at such a young age I know she is not suffering any more. She is resting peacefully now. I miss you Angie.

Wood Supply

We have been busy getting our wood supply for the winter and have been blessed by some friends to cut wood on their property. Today we get to cut some walnut wood, (my favorite) and I got to pick up walnuts last time we went too. I learned that you need a pair of gloves when you are taking the walnuts out of the green outer shell. Or your hands will be stained for a week. Nothing like fresh walnuts. If you get a chance to walk out in the woods be sure to gather some nuts for the winter. They are tasty in many different recipes!

Light at the End of the Tunnel

I knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Feeling better each day. Sun is shining bright outside. I just got the first load of laundry done and getting ready to hang it out on the line. I have lots to do today, housecleaning,homeschooling,cooking,taking care of the couple of family members who got the flu last and did I mention start a worm farm. Yes as a part of our home school we will be starting a worm farm for fun and who knows a profit God willing. This week we are mainly studying the different containers you can use to get your worm farm started. This is exciting and pictures will follow so stay tuned.

Fighting the Flu

Well the rest of the family got the flu too so we are all trying to help each other get over it. I have got to say even though I feel bad I am on the road to recovery. It has been a rough week but at least we will have this over with early in the season. Lots of cough drops and fluids. Glad to know it's almost over!

Flu Season Here

Happy Birthday Dad! Wish I could go visit but I am sick with the flu. This flu is a bad one. I have coughed so bad that my stomach even hurts. I have been taking Vit C and finally broke down and drank some yellow root yesterday. It helped some but I am still dragging. This has been about 4 days now so there has to be a light at the end of this tunnel. I hope I will be better soon.

September Days

Enjoying another September day. Another birthday is coming up soon, my dad's then my sons. My dad's most favorite cake is the peanut butter chocolate and Ben picked out a lemon cake. So we have some baking to do soon. As far as organizing, I have alot to go. So I hope to get it all together soon. We have been trying to make it to church on Sundays and that is always refreshing to praise God and fellowship with others who love Jesus. If you have not been to church in a while. Try to find one that believes like you do and visit every now and then. Have a great week!

Devin Bowling singing Revelation Song

Here is Devin (oldest son) singing one of my most favorite songs. The Revelation song. He is sitting in the back yard with the dog, if you look real close out by the truck one of the little chickens come walking around. It must be dancing. Hope you enjoy.
