Hey there and happy Friday! I hope that despite the craziness and uncertainty of the world right now you’re having a good week. I’ve struggled with a bit of an attitude this week, but I’m finding that if I take the time to really examine my life there are SO many blessings…
Since it’s sunny today and there’s rain forecast for the next few days we’ll be getting outside and working. We’ll be cutting down and burning several overgrown Honeysuckle plants… Reading about Honeysuckle plants in books always left me wondering what they were like. However, now that I’ve seen them I’m not a fan…At least not of the overgrown/ingrown into the fence variety I’m surrounded with. Maybe confined to a pot I could change my mind…but I’m doubtful.
We’re also going to be cutting more firewood-a chore that never ends when living on a homestead. And we’ll be working some more on the worm towers. I’m not necessarily afraid of worms but the idea of receiving and moving over 1,000 of them is not exactly my cup of tea…
This past week though was good.
I received a long letter from a friend out of state that brought a smile to my face. I love getting happy mail and wish that letter writing wasn’t becoming such a lost art…
We’ve all been experimenting with recipes lately. The other day we grilled chicken legs for dinner. I’m not a huge fan of chicken legs, especially grilled. I find them to be rather slimy. However we bought a new grill and Bradley made some sort of sweet & spicy rub from The Pioneer Woman to put on them and… IT WAS SO GOOD! (and I’m usually the first to admit that foods like chicken shouldn’t be sweet, BUT this rub/sauce was the prefect balance of sweet and salty)!
Remember those Pear Trees we bought a few weeks back? We finally got them in the ground! Planting anything makes me a little nervous. I’m always afraid that I’m going to harm the plant while trying to help it. But the tree that I helped plant seems to be doing nicely in it’s new home!
Life may not always be as we planned or hoped but it is good…if we only allow ourselves to see it. To embrace where God has put us and to trust that His plans for our lives are better than our own…
“A man’s heart plans his way,
But the LORD directs his steps. “
Until next time,
