taken a much needed break from blogging and it has been quite refreshing.
But, I thought I would write a quick little post just to let you know that I am still here and I do plan on blogging, just not very much during this busy time. My children, mainly my oldest, are doing what you might call a media fast from the computer. Because of this, I feel that I need to join them. I have allowed some quick moments for them to do what they need to do on the internet, but, it is a good thing for them to focus on other things that are of more importance.
I have three children in 4-H right now, all showing horses, goats and dogs. I am also trying to keep up with the large garden. Let me tell you, I have a love/hate relationship with the many garden hoses that I was moving around all day to keep our scorching, dry, sandy soil somewhat moist! Nothing is more frustrating than turning on the water to the sprinkler and there is no water. So, I have straightened up kinks, fiddled with the sprinkler that doesn't want to rotate sometimes and am constantly moving the one sprinkler to cover our 10,000+ square foot garden. Many times have I fixed the sprinkler and got it rotating, then as soon as I walked away it would stop. I have not thrown it yet, but, that thought has crossed my mind! Needless to say, it has finally rained a few times and I am so grateful!
Zucchini, yellow squash and cucumbers are coming on like crazy. Some of the candy onions and beans are ready. I have had some broccoli, but, unfortunately, a little goat decided she could jump the slanted garden fence and eat some of those broccoli heads. The radishes and spinach are done, so, I plan on planting more green beans in place of the spinach.
All in all, the farm is busily humming along. There isn't much time to focus on blogging, but, once this time of year is in the past, my posts will become more frequent.
It has also been a good time to reflect on His will for me. The miscarriage was a major blow to my family and I. We needed time to listen, really listen to His voice. In doing so, I really needed to back off from the computer and listen to the Lord. It has been good!
I will post here and there and I hope you all will stick with me during this busy time. I appreciate you!
