I Think We Maxed Out Our Storage On WordPress…

It appears that we just maxed out our capacity on WordPress here. I am going to see what options we have so maybe we don’t have to upgrade to the $100 a year plan. It may be a few weeks… I was just about to post the cutest post about our turkey slaughtering day. See you all soon…. I’m not going anywhere, we just may need to wait until next month when we have more available funds to upgrade.


Well, it looks like we’ll have to do the $99 a year plan, but next month. I contacted godaddy.com and they shared that WordPress is unlike others who will release the FTP (whatever that is) in order for me to migrate the blog to a new one… I guess that’s how they get you!!!   : ) They’re pretty smart! Well, I’ll have to play catch up with pictures. I just took pictures of the girls sewing with their first sewing machine we bought them. It arrived today. I have a huge bin of fabric scraps (some quite large) that they can play around with over the Winter.  : )

Just Kids


I don’t have many recent pictures of Matthew. He will be 6 years old in November. He is a very sweet, touchy boy. He loves to rub my arm and be all lovey when he is doing his reading lesson to me. I think he will be a true romantic, loving young man when he gets married one day. He loves to love. Loves to touch.


Beautiful eyes… Warm brownish green on the inside with a dark ring of blue around them.


Here’s Pup with her new dress I made her. I got the fabric at Walmart for $2.00 a yard and the shirt for under $8.00.

Close sisters. This picture reminds me of the one I took of them in Iowa a couple of years ago. They share a room and the same bed together. Little sweeties…


I think Elisabeth’s eyes remind me of that one woman’s eyes that was on National Geographic many, many years ago.

Bike Ride Part II



The West side of Lake Wannacut. People like to walk down to this point and fish.


Down the road I go. This road is very bumpy with ridges and pretty sandy… Not my favorite place to ride, but soon I will be on pavement.


The South end of the lake.

Cows on the North end and horses on the South end. Now I’m on pavement for the rest of my ride.


Where this road goes, I do not know. There are no houses to see…


My favorite part of the ride… this road goes down to a barn on the left. It’s vast openness out here is incredible. I’d much rather live in an area like this than the lake. I wish the camera would capture what it really looks like out here on a sunny day.


There’s the barn, my turnaround spot. I’ve had a good ride for 3 to 4 miles I am guessing.


This is close to the barn. Just look at how thick those trees must have been.


To show you how big it is out here, note the gate up on the hill…


Heading home – I think I will go for a walk tomorrow. It was just a harder ride today and time for my body to rest a bit.


My Bike Ride – Part 1

I go for a bike ride each day for about an hour. It is my favorite time of the day because it’s simply beautiful living here. I thought I would take my camera along today to take pictures. I go one of two routes, so tomorrow I will do “My Bike Ride – Part II”.


Down the road, maybe a mile from where we live. Wannacut Lake is on the right which you will see in the next picture, and there is a little body of water across the street from it as you see on the left.

Still riding…  Heading towards Blue Lake. Isn’t it pretty? DSC_0107 Approaching Blue Lake. DSC_0108 DSC_0110 DSC_0113

My little turtle friend who came up to see me. DSC_0117              Up close DSC_0121

Shallow water with a clean, sandy bottom gives it this pretty green look. DSC_0134

On my way back, I stop here to drink some water and do whatever else is necessary.DSC_0136

Our neighbor’s cows. Almost home!
