So much Rain


The rain is still pouring. It has been pretty much constantly for weeks. We have the garden pretty much ready but now it has rained for almost 3 days straight so we can't get into plant. :( I bought many plants and seeds for the garden. We wanted to plant today but alas more rain. Now the sun has come out so hopefully by Wednesday we can get into the garden without sinking.


My brother's fiance's daughter had prom last night. Oh what beautiful ladies. It is sad though they don't do tux's. When I went to the prom all the guys wore tux's. How sad the standard is going down. The one guy that was there looked like he pulled his shirt and pants off his bedroom floor. Stained dingy white button downed shirt with a tie and black wrinkly pants. I felt so sad. Your prom is a once in a lifetime experience :(
This picture is my brother and I while we were taking pictures of the prom goers.

Clothesline


A clothes line was a news forecast
To neighbors passing by.
There were no secrets you could keep
When clothes were hung to dry.
It also was a friendly link
For neighbors always knew
If company had stopped on by
To spend a night or two.
For then you’d see the ‘fancy sheets’
And towels upon the line;
You’d see the ‘company table cloths’
With intricate design.
The line announced a baby’s birth
To folks who lived inside
As brand new infant clothes were hung
So carefully with pride.
The ages of the children could
So readily be known
By watching how the sizes changed
You’d know how much they’d grown.
It also told when illness struck,
As extra sheets were hung;
Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe, too,
Haphazardly were strung.
It said, ‘Gone on vacation now’
When lines hung limp and bare.
It told, ‘We’re back!’ when full lines sagged
With not an inch to spare.
New folks in town were scorned upon
If wash was dingy gray,
As neighbors carefully raised their brows,
And looked the other way..
But clotheslines now are of the past
For dryers make work less.
Now what goes on inside a home
Is anybody’s guess.
I really miss that way of life.
It was a friendly sign
When neighbors knew each other best
By what hung on the line!

Count Your Blessings Monday


I am greatful for many things in life. Being able to stay home and take care of my family and mom. My hubby for being there for me. For everything he does to make my life easier (well most of the time) My kids for their loving gifts and kind thoughts for Mother's Day.
I am greatful for knowing the ones I love that have went onto heaven before me. My daddy is missed horribly. My grandparents and their wisdom. I miss them all. But if it weren't for them I wouldn't be the person I am today.
*An excerpt taken from Marci Blubaugh's blog* I have followed this little boy's journey since he was diagnosed 4 years ago :(
This past week a precious little boy named Samuel Backus went home to be with Jesus. He was just 6 years old. For the last 4 years of his life, pain was the norm. He went through more in his short life than most of us will ever face in a lifetime. There is a web page that tells his story and his family's story and his struggles. Read the updates on the last couple of days of his little life. Then pray for his Momma and his family. They have a lot to work through and heal from. It makes me realize how little suffering I have had to be part of in this life. For that I am grateful. I don't ever want to take that for granted.

Mother's Day


Mother's Day was wonderful. Had a few unhappy kids but that was mostly from being lunchtime or tired. Saturday we hubby took a load of stuff to the dump (cleaning out the garage and sheds) went to his Grandma's (mom to him she raised him) picked up his David Bradley and a rottitiller body. We are looking for a motor for it. He came home used the Bradley and plowed up the garden. :) He took the trailer to his sister's house and got a load of wood for this winter. We are almost stocked up for this winter.


Mother's Day was special. Josh made me a pin that says I love Mom. Chelsea planted a flower at school earlier this year. I got that. She went with her friend to the markets and they got me a flower and necklace. Audrey got me a hanging flower. Hubby got me chocolate mint plant, peppermint plant and horseradish plant. Yummy....I can't wait to be able to plant. Really hope to find a motor for that rottitiller.


My mom and I got each other a bag of candy. :) And we ate it together chatting away. Don't ever take your mom's for granted.

Count Your Blessings Monday

I feel blessed to have 4 healthy beautiful children. They are all sleeping but the baby. He is sitting here with me eating his "ish" (cheese) and playing with his train. My mom's surgery went very well. I am taking the next 2 months off to care for her and sell my dad's books online to see if I can make a decent income so I can stay home. I am leaving the next two months in God's hands. I have a wonderful feeling it will all work out. I am blessed to have such a wonderful hubby to let me do this. I love you dear...




Art's Festival






For Audrey's birthday we went to the Lewisburg Art's Festival. Gorgeous day for a wonderful event.

Tommy (Audrey's boyfriend) and Wyatt play on the playground. It was such a fun day. I hope Audrey had a wonderful 17th birthday!
