We put on fertilizer ….
Wow. A lot happened last week and it seems like a long time ago already.
We baked cookies.
We made Easter/spring cupcakes that I hope to give their own blogpost…
We burnt candles. I’ve felt blessed to have the cozy flickering of candles on many days through the winter and into spring. They cheer me. I have a friend who loves candles and it’s always easy to buy her a gift. If no other inspiration strikes, I always know she will love a new candle. In fact, she helped influence my love for candles when I really stop and think about it. She was one of the friends who reached out to me when I first moved to Kansas and I spent a lot of time with her those first couple of years. God is so good at supplying our needs in so many areas and so many ways.
Visual reminder hanging on my Suburban’s rearview mirror. Everyday I need it.
Sneaking this photo in. My son has reached the age where he doesn’t always like to have his picture taken and isn’t always thrilled for me to put it on my blog. Ever since I started blogging, I’ve always tried to “do unto others as I’d like” when it comes to posting pics on my blog. I’m not going to post unflattering pictures and for the most part only pictures of our family. There are some people who I know don’t or won’t care if I post pics of them and others who wouldn’t care for it or I’m not sure about. This has just been my unspoken rule of thumb. When I started blogging my children were still at carefree ages without too much pressure of other’s opinions. It does feel like it gets trickier to me as they get older. I definitely want to respect my pre-teens and teens yet I also love creating memories here. I do love this picture of my son and I know how fast the years are getting away!!
This is the kind of picture you might get when you’re waiting at the field for the tractor to reach you. A photo in the rearview mirror of your Lilla Rose hairsticks! The tops anyway!
We don’t officially take spring break with our home school, but a lot of times the kiddos will get together with friends who are on spring break, so in one sense we have a “mini” spring break. 🙂 We generally have other days that come up here and there that we take off throughout the year. We just work around our farming and our schedule.
I can’t seem to spell today. I keep leaving letters out of words or hitting the wrong keys.
We bagged cookies.
70 of them to deliver to Grandpa for his 70th birthday.
It’s called having a husband who’s not extremely fond of lasagna and a wife who is. It’s called having a husband who loves hominy-bean casserole and a wife who is kind of “meh” about it. It’s called having a light bulb moment several years ago and serving the lasagna meat dish and the hominy bean dish at the same meal.
And each to his or her own.
Lovely green peas, just calling, “Take a picture please!”
Blue or purple?
That is the question!!!
You never know around a farm house what you might find soaking in your basement sink.
Guacamole? Yes, please!
Farmtrip. Some days when you get up, you just don’t know where you’ll end up at the end of the day! That’s how our farm schedule is at times, anyway!
That’s a lot of grain bins.
I posted some pics over on Instagram. I always enjoy riding along with my farmer and spending time with him.
Loved this beautiful, big flag. Photo not so great.
Sign for a fabric/quilting shop we passed by.
On a side trip of our farm trip, we made a quick visit to Bass Pro Shop in Springfield, MO. It is one huge place. And we ate supper at Lamberts. Their web address is cute. And perfect for them, of course! It is www.throwedrolls.com.
Kiddos stayed at Grandma’s. They aren’t always excited about riding. And I don’t mind having a farmdate when they don’t go. I didn’t think about Bass Pro or Lambert’s till we were on our way. They would’ve enjoyed both places. But they enjoyed Grandma’s house and fudge bars and Nutty bars. It had been a while since they’d stayed overnight at Grandma’s and they helped her with some chores.
Managed to mark a few things off of my to-do list.
I wonder how many times I’ve baked chocolate chip cookies over the years. They’re my favorite. I realized I’ve been baking for over 20 years. And I still get things overdone or underdone! 🙂 And sometimes just right.
Tucker did a Patrick McManus impression for me from one of the stories he read.
Friends here overnight a couple of different nights. Girls in go-kart. Snacks consumed. Basement a mess. Basement cleaned up. Late nights. Supper out with friends/employers.
Renae helped Grandma at Red Cross. Big day. Several things and big days in a row. More baby-sitting. Cleaning job canceled for the week for her because of sick people.
Craft stuff arriving. Now to craft! I hope! I really want to do a wreath before Easter, but I also want to enjoy it and am telling myself if it doesn’t get done, it’s ok. Yet, I often work better with a deadline in mind!
And oh my goodness!! This old blog post when Renae got her bottom braces on. I can’t believe how young she looks!!
