My friend Teresa Akey will be going back into the work force and Rachel will be leaving for Florida so we got together Monday for lunch. It was fun hearing about everyone’s plans for the Holidays and the future. I am excited for them both and hope they enjoy their winter endeavors. After thatContinue reading “My Heart Is Full and I Am THANKFUL“
This week I spent a good portion of the week setting in front of our coffee table shelling beans or in front of my spinning wheel carding and spinning wool. In between I kept my flour grinder busy with some different flours I wanted to try. My Flour grinder can only run 15 minutes atContinue reading “Grinding Flour, Shelling Beans, and Loving the Quiet Views of Fall.”
Counting my blessings and at every corner I see more to be thankful for. That is actually how I started writing this little news letter. I was challenged with 30 days of thankfulness before Thanksgiving. It so affected me that it continued after Thanksgiving. Eventually it turned into more like a news letter of ourContinue reading “Thankful Thoughts as Garden Chores Slow Down.“
If The World Could Look at the Diversity of Colors of Skin Like We Look at the Fall Leaves We Would All Appreciate the Diversity in the Contrasting Colors.
Fall is perhaps my favorite time of year. Our conservation ground and the woods are filled with bright yellows, dark evergreens, and burgundies, reds and oranges. I have told Duane more than once that no matter where we have gone to see fall colors the most beautiful scene is from the cemetery hill just beforeContinue reading “If The World Could Look at the Diversity of Colors of Skin Like We Look at the Fall Leaves We Would All Appreciate the Diversity in the Contrasting Colors.”
Fall, Letting Go, Gathering Bounty, Loving Family, Chasing The Sunset and Singing Praises To The One In Charge Of It All
Short nights and early mornings were my friend this week. Monday morning I made a trip to Shipshewana for some fall and winter supplies. Salt, rolled oats, etc. etc. I love E&S for their different flours, grains and spices that are usually reasonable. I also find some really good bargains when I go. Seems IContinue reading “Fall, Letting Go, Gathering Bounty, Loving Family, Chasing The Sunset and Singing Praises To The One In Charge Of It All“
This week started out with laundry from the weekend and putting the rest of the bell tower garden pots in the ground. I then did some cooking and got my garlic in the garden for next year along with some of the garden clean up. I am holding off on doing too much because IContinue reading “A Hard Good Bye, However New Blessings Still Overflow”
My Birthday Blessings tell me it is fall however on my birthday I noticed my lilacs are blooming again. When I posted this on Facebook several others confirmed that theirs were too. This seems very odd as I do not ever remember regular lilacs blooming twice in one season. Most of the trees are stillContinue reading “Is It Spring or Fall Y’all“
Monday between storms I checked the winter squash patch. Bugs and wet weather can cause them to rot. I am sure glad I did. A couple rotted and it was time to harvest. I picked and Duane carried them in. We also needed to get my phone fixed to be able to trade it inContinue reading “Drizzly Ducky, Diddle Do Days Here on The Wade Homestead“
This week I dug all but 2 barrels of sweet potatoes and have them curing out in my little tent in the basement. We love sweet potato greens and I will wait until the vines stop producing them to dig the last 2 barrels. Speaking about barrels I was really excited to find 55 gallonContinue reading “Amazing Provision”
Sometimes Storms Are Good and Fill the Soil in Our Hearts With Love My week started out quiet with gentle rains, shelling beans and spinning wool. I had lots of beans picked to shell during the rainy days that were forecasted. I did find more cucumbers and tomatoes to make another batch of our favoriteContinue reading “This Week Started With Calm Gentle Rains Before a Storm of Activity”
