Saved 239.71
That includes three $15 knives 50-60 pounds of beef for the fall.

Today will be a grind 
Meat grinding that is...

Saved $84.02
That includes 40 pound chicken legs , thighs and quarters. Sardines, lunch meat and 
100 %cranberry juice. Also they had nail care for 50% off so 4 manicures plus.

 This was a sweet morning. Dash and I walked our lab around the block after Daddy man was off to work lunch in tow. The kids wake now independently. YA!!!
This gives us plenty of time to get ready and then be together.
WE aggravated each other before they were off to the bus stop.har har

To be finished after school. 

I'm listening to some sweet JOHN DENVER music.

 Monday is laundry day
Finally got a good process going now week after week.
It is so wonderful to have my strength back.
 I'll need it for the kitchen saw little attention with the full weekend.
Dishes were neglected.

 Dove won a water bottle with a candy bar in it for helping so much with the bus evacuation drill on Friday. I am so proud of her. This girl is so thoughtful of other kids. A real kind heart of a kid. Makes me feel real good about my example.
 Laundry is being hung out and the morning is agreeable. Not too hat this morning. Fall is teasing us. We get a good hour of cool (all things relative) in the morning.

 Our lawn has come back and thriving pretty well. Soon I'll feed it and in a month or so toss the winter rye. So good to see the summer lawn thrive. Beloved mowed while I cleaned the coop when we got home yesterday. We were so hot and sweaty we figured we would push ourselves a little more.

 We got together and moved the compost of chicken and straw one compost barrel and started a pile as to be better able to turn it. It will be right there in the garden too.

 Lots of work to do out here this week.
Soil needs to be turned so the seeds can get in.
 Speaking of work...
This all needs to get gone.
Craig's list get this all cleaned up!
 Try something new...
boiled water with Anis, use some cheese cloth the strain it. 
If you like licorice you'll love it!
Well my cup is empty and the dishes have soaked some.
Better get up my 45 minute break is over.

 Speaking of breaks some things here have broken free and I feel awesome!
Clean hands pure heart!

What a great day! Your kitchen looks like mine after this very busy weekend. Still, I think we both accomplished a lot, at least you did. We'll see what I really accomplished. Oh, thanks for sharing this post. I love the menu board. That is much more my style- easier to change. Your photos on your entire blog are so beautiful. God made food look too yummy, or maybe that is just your food. I'm going to see if you posted about your laundry soap recipe...

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
"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."
