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. : )
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.
Here is some of the product from our honey…
Propolis which has great healing and antiseptic properties in it.
See our dark, honey colored wax next to the stuff I bought at the health store some time ago?
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.
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.
Wannacut Lake – We live on the right side of it.
Up the first hill and looking back towards the lake which is on the left.
Pretty rock formations.
Still riding… Heading towards Blue Lake. Isn’t it pretty? Approaching Blue Lake.
My little turtle friend who came up to see me. Up close
Shallow water with a clean, sandy bottom gives it this pretty green look.
On my way back, I stop here to drink some water and do whatever else is necessary.
Flower going to seed…
Our neighbor’s cows. Almost home!
I just had to post this. My husband some years ago prayed that we would have 8 children. We felt like this was God’s Spirit leading him to pray this. We’ve always believed we’d have 8 children after we had the first five. Well, it’s been a couple of years now since the twins have been born, one miscarriage soon after they were born and we’ve been pretty content. Still waiting, not much in the way of planning for the perfect moment to come together in hopes for another baby… no supplements or anything else to try to conceive. But, our time is closing in if it isn’t done already. With the thought of possibly taking down the cribs for the twins in a while, my heart somehow panicked. I want another baby! One more pregnancy. One more (or two – I love twins), baby to hold, to nurse, to love, to watch while he or she is sleeping. So, with prayer and more of a dedicated focus on trying to conceive, taking some maca and red clover and more prayer, maybe we’ll have another baby. Just maybe. Please Lord.
