3 POSTS IN ONE DAY!!!





Its been a month & might be another month before I post again. Just some updates. The Summer months have brought a lot of work. Besides the normal work...up keep of the trees, I've been putting up vegetables & such. 8 bushels of peas (pink eyes,purple hulls, Mississippi Creams, Reds, Sudandees), a bushel of butter beans, 4 bushels of tomatoes, 4 bushels of corn, a bushel of squash & blue berries. Pickin, shellin, creamin....good night & there is still more to do as the growing season continues.

There is a new shelter being added on to store the pecan bins & tractors. We are trying to make some changes to make the pecan harvest easier & with less labor.

The Package has been recurrently sick. I think its from the RSV she had in February causing her to have a lot of respiratory infections. Danny has been sick too. In 18&1/2 years he has never had to take an antibiotic. Well the time has come.

So I guess like all of you....life is busy! I am enjoying a really good Bible study by Beth Moore called the PSALMS OF ASCENT. Some of her studies can be hard and complicated but this one is simple but deep in spiritual truths. I highly recommend it!

No more posts for me. I've got work to do. Just thought I would give a little update with some pictures.

Oh Tina, I miss you when you are not posting. I love all the pictures. Poor little Package. Do you get to see her a lot?

I enjoyed hearing from you girl. We did squash, okra, tomatoes and bell peppers and cucumbers this year. Starting with sweet potoes for our fall garden. Sounds like you have been a busy bee.
Sorry about the baby...hopefully the humidity will die down and she will get better soon.

It's wonderful to hear from you, Tina! I will pray for the little sweetie..it's no fun when they are sick. Wonderful pictures-it looks like you are having a busy, but great summer.
Hugs,
Kelli

Hi you busy girl! Nice to hear from you! I've been busy too, and of course there is much extra to do during these summer months! Keep a smile on your sweet face!

God is truly blessing you with plenty of frsh vegetables to put up. We are praying we can at least get one decent meal out of our garden. We need rain so bad.

One of my daughters gave me Beth Moore's DAVID, 90 Days with a Heart Like His. I have not had time to read it yet but I am going to start on it today.

Tina, stopped by to say 'hope the summer is good to you'. May the trees be full of nuts this fall.

Kelli said...

What a great harvest, Tina! There is nothing better than homegrown veggies! I hope the little package is feeling better soon. It's wonderful to hear from you!

Three extraordinary moments. Vegetables, flowers and insect and a beautiful macro of a creature of nature. I liked your blog, I visited his house, met his family and took tea with biscuits in the shape of a leaf, thank you for the wonderful reception.
