Chats on the Farmhouse Porch
1. Joyful Keeper asks, "What makes you smile a happy,content smile in the course of a day?"
I think when all my work is finished. The house is clean, dinner is almost finished and my husband will be walking in the door, it is moments like those I realize I have been given the world.
2. My Kid's Mom asks, "Are you married, single, or divorced?"
I am married and it will be 32 years in April. It still only feels like I am 17 and I looked up and there he was, He is still that cute guy to me.
3. Empty Nester asks, " Do you have any home remedies for allergy or the common cold?"
I really don't have any, I think for me that being proactive is the best medicine. Keeping up my good yeast to keep my immune system healthy. Staying away from white refined flour and white sugar, One thing I have to say that has helped me more than anything I have tried in a long time. I have had U TI 's My sister told me about taking 1 teaspoon of soda with a whole lemon or lime mixed with 8 ounces of purified water. I was completely sceptical, but I was so tired of the pain and having to be on antibiotics. So I tried it. I haven't had one since. Even with antibiotics I was always aware of the pain. After drinking that all the pain was gone. So that has to be the best and easy fix I have found. This is in no way medical advice it is just something that helped me to return to normal.
4. Stephanie asks, "How many different addresses did you have growing up?"
Four times as a kid but the funny thing since I have been married all of the streets we lived on have began with the letter "M"
5. I've just recently realized...that I am to obey God and leave the consequences to Him. I know this with my whole heart, but today while I was driving and I was thinking it just seemed to shout at me. All I have to do is what He is telling me to do and I don't have to worry.
I am so tired of worry. I was thinking today, I am committing suicide slowly because I worry so much. I have to stop.
I want to thank Patrice once again, I hope your week is a nice one, it feels like spring outside today. I can see the pear trees on the next street over and the light sheen of green appearing and the tell-tale blooms on some of the lower branches. We aren't finished trimming trees yet.

So he worked the already perfect soil with his tractor and then on Saturday he had got a load of this wonderful mulch he goes to buy for his little trees but it is wonderful in the garden too.
He also bought 3 Rhubarb plants. We planted those but only in a giant pot so I can move it when it gets hot. It gets to hot out in the pasture so I will have to find a place that gets shade part of the day.
He said they had Artichokes. I would love to have some of those too. I love growing Artichokes. Eating them is nice too.
It was a very nice day, we got to be outside in shirtsleeves.
Now off to get stuff done, it is after all Monday.
Have a great week,

When I started this blog, I thought I was going to be a real farm girl. I had my bees and my garden and I thought I would have so much to write about.
Then the bees flew away and my garden hasn't been that hot.
|New bees in their hive.|
I forgot about the stings, and the vet bill because Sasha got stung so bad we had to rush her to the emergency vet. I forget about my husband getting so sick from the stings because he is allergic to them.
All I remember are the good times.
