my afternoon

No more Thursday thirteen, It went down hill.

After our morning posts, Dove found pleasure in painting while....

I did my art. I showed her my morning schedule.
This project is finished now , but I can not show you it yet...Ho Ho HO

Once it was warm enough we headed outside. After cleaning the coop the compost bin was full to overflowing.

She gleefully played in the clean pine shavings while I worked and, cleared the soil, fork turned it and then tipped over the compost to amend it.

I gave her an earth worm I dug up in my labor.
She was delighted with it.
It was a bit frustrating to be doing the hard labor with my sweet kid calling me to "come see" every few moments.
I had to get this task done.
I must get the food crop planted in a timely manner.

That black bag is news print for the compost, I do not like using it however. It does not break down very fast.

using a shovel all of the good earth was dug from the bottom and then the bin was pushed back into place and tamped down a bit. Not full any longer.

Well my compost may not have turned out just perfect , but for a first timer it is pretty good. There is so much yet to learn. There will always be so much to learn.

Hello! found another little fellow. Bless God this one is unharmed.
Perhaps it is another of the scarab mothes?

Soil cleared , turned, and amended with home made compost.
The cantaloupe vines are now in the compost.
The beans and peas will be picked after while.

The straw is all piled to the one side until I see where it will be need.
Look at that rich earth i created!
I did it!
Now that was a lot of work to get it going over the last few months, but now nature has taken over.

Cantaloupe harvest , as it is. Very small. One was found ripe so the chickens enjoyed it. I assumed so small no value to us. These will be saved until we are all together and cut them open then.
At this point Dove got out of the coop we brushed her off, and the garden gate locked behind me.

This is where the pitch fork entered my shoe!
It missed my toes!
I am not sure how?
This pencil is touching my toe dead center.
"Angels watching over me!"

We are both showered, and have had a late lunch of Tuna and crackers.
Dove is enjoying the first t. v. time of the day, a movie.
Dash is due home in 15 minutes.
This post is finished just in time.

Praise God for angels watching over you.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
