Saturday was work up front, which always is followed by play time, so I'll suck it up at first. Jeffrey had a pump suck up the (lake) water in the pool, and I
I also had to water my garden. Oh, wait....I should show you! You're gonna 'peer die' as mama says! In two weeks, these puppies have grown like, well, veggies! It must've been my TALK I gave them....
The zucchinni squash have prospered well!
And I believe I see jalepeno poppers in my future! And possibly some stuffed bell peppers! Mmmmm!
Grow tomatoes, grow!
Now, let me take a minute here to tell you I learn something every day out here. My most recent lesson was in planting my green beans. Too.close.to.the.duck.pen.
This papa duck has apparently been sticking his squirmy little neck through and ate every last seed on the back row of beans! Next recipe to try: GRILLED DUCK. Sometimes a farm can have one too many animal. Just sayin....
After a long day of cleaning the pool and yard work on Saturday,
because I'm so impatient with prizes, I the Easter Bunny decided to make a special delivery early to the cute yard boy. :)
Full of his favorite candy bars (Zeros-yuck), gum, a smell good candle, a movie we've talked about a lot and I finally found! (Who doesn't love, and CRY at Where the Red Fern Grows...and Old Yeller!)
We watched a breathtaking sunset, and enjoyed a ride around the farm, and I anxiously awaited Sunday....the stone is rolled away! With skies like these, plants that grow, and animals all around, it's so easy to see how GOOD God is! How ALIVE He is!
Sunday morning started
unfortunately with a migraine--but we medicated and ignored with a wonderful service at Calvary Baptist where Brother Don told us to watch our punctuation! Never put a period (or a question mark?) where God has put an exclamation! So let me say this, He IS ALIVE!!!
Roscoe and I even took a few glamour shots for my love. :)
Can you go wrong with iTunes and candy? And for Kyle, a serious slingshot...maybe for my benefit mostly...there are some seriously pesty birds in our ferns... And Emmy's been dying to read "90 Minutes in Heaven," a tear jerker, but so sweet. But the best was they thought they'd dug through it all, but Daddy had hid one plastic egg in the bottom of both...they looked over it....until one found it....with a 50 dolla bill ya!
Next it was over to Grandmama's (Jeff's grandmother's) for lunch. Lot's of people. New people for me. But I already felt like family. No handshakes, only hugs. The way I like it. I'll be back, that's what I told Grandmama. But what I loved the most were these faces. Hands down.
And thanked God for his Son. For his sacrifice. For my sins. For that ol' rugged cross.
