Yard care, prepairing for the Garden extention.


While I was cleaning the coop yesterday,
My Darling was scooping the doggy doo.
We used the wheel barrow to haul the chicken doo to the compost.
He asked me if I still wanted to move the shed...:}
Oh, Oh, yes yes yes!!!!!!!!!
So we teamed up and used a drip pan to slide the compost over.

Trimmed a bit of orange tree limb to tuck the shed up under it a bit.
This way the neighbor does not have to look at it.
He mowed the seedy grass for me.
I have bad allergy to grass, real bad.
We used the old Egyptian technique.
We slid it on boards and then I would shift the planks over and over until we got real close to the spot. Sweet baby cut a finger and poured out his own blood to complete the job.
Now I have a place to store the tools and supplies...
They will now be close to the garden.

So sweet as it is a garden shed.
This will have a nice work surface, and a place for all the plants and foods.

This side will be extended out to a garden with some raised beds.
We will be fencing it off eventually in some way.


This Morning I was given some grapefruits.
So a morning at the patio to do the mail, calls I had to make and such.
I enjoyed my coffee, and fruit.

The dogs were thrilled to get the grapefruit scraps.
Yes they eat grape fruit!

The girls were happy to get some feed and attention.


Steve tied up the trellis by drilling a screw into the masonry wall and then used a wire to attach it. The beans, are doing well. These are the "blue Lake" vine beans.

Pulled my first onion. I am like a little kid...just too curious ;}
I wanted one for supper tonight.

With the shed gone off the west side I have all this room here.
I love the wide open space over here.
This will get gated off to be used for the berry garden in the future.
I have to acidify the earth. I will do this over the hot summer months.
I'll add some compost too.
near the outer corner where the black water pipe is...
I will have the pomegranate tree put in soon.
I am so concerned of the dog eating the tree though.
I have a budget for some trees this month.

Everything got hosed down, the laundry hung today and the porch hosed off.



With the dogs inside The patio got a good hosing off.

I hope to get this spray painted this week.

As well as this.
I purchased these things when I got a settlement years (like 12-15?) ago.
I had a bad fall in a shower stall where a maid had used lemon oil on the shower stall.
I got hurt pretty bad.
So with what was left after all the bills , I earned this.
I earned the patio furniture the HARD WAY ;}

The cushions were purchased from the funds left me at the death of my Dad.
This is mine.
In marriage never is something looked at as his or mine.
These things are what I liked though.
They are a set that meant a lot to me.
Now they are not something I think we would have chosen together.
Steve does not like them much.
Funny in marriage how we can loose ourselves if we are not careful.
Fortunate we have also found ourselves too.

I found a way to keep the mess down while loading the feeders.

Well I better tend to supper.

Ok.... here is how I see it..... You are not a real person but someone from outer space.....Somewhere out in the vast expanse God must have a little spot where HE has HIS "gifted beyond all that can be imagined kids" and every once in a while HE puts one here to show us how we are to live!

I am thinking that you are one of those kids........

What a gal, what a gal... You remind me of that song...

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."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “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
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
