Day 167-Thankful for our tiller, my husband, and God preparing our hearts to plant a beautiful garden!

Saturday morning was cold, after having reached near freezing, but by afternoon it had warmed up and had become a beautiful day! It was a perfect day for tilling the garden. The strawberry plants already have blossoms, and I’m already harvesting asparagus. But the rest of the garden needed to be tilled before we can… Read More Day 167-Thankful for our tiller, my husband, and God preparing our hearts to plant a beautiful garden!

Day 36 – Thankful for Snow Days, Heat, and Adventures

This past Sunday was a beautiful day with temperatures in the 60’s Fahrenheit. Monday, sleet began to tap, tap, tap on the air conditioning unit that is still in the kitchen window. Then an inch and a half of snow fell over the next few hours. The temperature dropped to 10 degrees Fahrenheit by Tuesday… Read More Day 36 – Thankful for Snow Days, Heat, and Adventures
