I finally took the time to make a list on paper today. Normally, I list the things I want to accomplish in my brain. I then struggle to remember all the things I want to get done. So, today I wrote it all down. I had given a young friend a glass cookie jar for her hope chest. She asked me to paint on it. That was several months ago. I would see it sitting there, but my paints weren't out, or I had to do something else. Today, I decided was the day to paint it. She likes strawberries and hopes to do her kitchen in a strawberry theme. Here is what I painted. My husband said it looks good all except for it looks like it reads Gookies. =) Maybe that could mean Good Cookies!!Here are some lamby pictures. I think that Knit and Purl might turn brown. I am seeing bits of brown showing up. These first two pictures are of them. You can see it in the wool on the one on the right in the second picture.
The three smaller calves have been getting out. I don't know what I would do without my Cow Patrol. They have more than earned their crowns in heaven. Here they are all hanging out under the peach tree. Michael is just off to the right moving fence to give them more grass.
This is an old potato planter that was left on our property. I would love to repair the seat and the wooden boxes. I would then fill the boxes with flowers.
These next two pictures are of baby oak leaves. This is one of the last trees to lose its leaves. In fact it has many dead brown ones that hang on all winter. I love the colors of the leaves as they start to grow. They are almost Autumn like.
Here is my Honeysuckle. The whole bush is full of blooms. They smell good, but are not very strong. I always thought that Honeysuckle was a vine, but it grows in bush form everywhere around here. It is considered a weed.
You knew I would not forget to put some Wisteria pictures up. I can't even begin to tell you what joy these blooms have brought me this Spring. The wind blows across the pasture and as you walk into or out of my house, the delicious scent of these blooms floats by you on the breeze.
These pictures show much of the beauty around our farm. There are lots of spots, you will probably never see on my posts. I want to say again, I am a very real human being with lots of warts. I don't in anyway want to paint myself or my life as more than it is. I just choose to not share lots of the downside of our lives. Like you did not see my mention the great fall I took last Thursday when I flashed the Amish women with my bright flowery underwear. I ended up covered in mud all the way down the back of me. Sigh...... =)
