Yarn Along {All The Places To Love}

Last week I was finishing my Seaside Blue dishcloth. When I finished it I set out this linen color. I snapped some pictures of my collection of solid colors. The golden yellow and coral-y pink found a new home, so they aren’t in the stack anymore. I love how all the colors look together. This [Read On]

Happenings on the Farm: Fertilizer Spreading

  Summer is waning, even if I don’t want to quite admit it or let it go. Though I did love opening up windows and enjoying the cool air, when our temperatures took a lower swing last week. Fall approaching. That means in the farming cycle that we keep preparing and sliding closer to the days [Read On]

Memoir Monday {No.86}

    War Room. Go watch it. Take Kleenex. Beautiful, awesome, powerful message. Jesus and prayer intertwined throughout it all. Playing in theaters in America! Go support it.

Passionate About Marriage

I have a heart for marriage. I feel passionately about it. The commitment to marriage and the plan God has for marriage is sadly becoming lost and tossed away today like so much litter. I want for people to love their spouse, love their marriage and be grounded in God. Does this mean I have a [Read On]

Quotes to Remember {No. 2}

Affirm your husband often! Husbands have a need for our affirmation. This is at the heart of the “helper” role and why God said it is not “good” for man to be alone. Your man needs your affirmation!

My Pie Crust

It’s Pie crust day! Or post pie-crust-recipe-day anyway! One big reason to add this is because I have a three-ring binder that contains all the recipes I’ve posted on my blog. I print them out and stick them in it. They are my well-used, often-used, go-to, loved, favorite or family recipes. My pie crust recipe isn’t [Read On]

I never really pictured doing style posts for my blog, but Renae and I have been doing some photo shoots here and there and it’s been fun!

Salsa

I had a friend asking me about my salsa recipe. It’s one I have planned on adding here sometime. I needed to rewrite it with the changes and tweaks I’ve done and it struck me that it would be almost as quick to simply add it here. Then it would be here and she could [Read On]

Birthday Blooms

    Beautiful bright blooms. Brilliant sunshine streaming in. Light bouncing, dancing, catching, casting shadows, sparkling. Fantastic flowers. Fluid light flows from outside. Finding its way to fling glorious rays around. Camera clicks. Capturing radiance and freeze framing it. The splendor and the wonder in bright bouquets. A simple bud. Simply complex. I could never [Read On]

Corned Beef Cheeseball

Cheeseball. It’s just a yummy snack. It intrigues me how cream cheese can be so tasty as a salty type snack and so delicious in a sweet recipe. It’s all about what you add to it! We tend to fix cheeseball around the holidays, it seems. But, I also fix it some in the summer [Read On]
