Well things just keep getting better with Spring upon us. It’s nice to get the kids outside – and me outside too. Here’s a few pictures of the past couple of days. I’ll put up the rest of the pictures soon.

Elisabeth’s sweet letter to me. It says, “Thank you for all that you do I love you very much!” Thank you sweetie!
Playing with their ponies…
The blue carpet – all gone!
Some wonderful pickled garlic that my neighbor Carol gave me. I believe it has a bit of honey in it, it has just the right amount of sweetness to it. I will have to do this myself now as I cannot stay away from it!
Another gift our neighbor gave to us. I can’t wait to get it going and try it. It is a hearty green herb that supposedly tastes like spinach. It has good medicinal properties to it. Thanks again Carol!!! Again, I just love my neighbors here.
Pup with a new doll we picked up at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago.
Baby turkeys. Matthew took the kids out yesterday to pick up some baby chicks at Princes. They only had a few left and they were only straight run, so they walked over to look at the turkeys. They were nearly ten dollars a piece, just too pricey for our liking. One of the employees there, (he suspects to be the manager) happened to be talking with Matthew and the kids. She shared after a few minutes that she wanted to buy the kids some turkeys. Matthew shared that she didn’t have to do that, but she insisted. She bought them 4 baby white broad breasted turkeys (the ones we use to raise) and a bag of feed. What a dear thing for a stranger to do! We have never been in such a community that is so giving – and they give freely here. It brings me such joy to be able to give and exchange here with little opportunities that come our way. Thank you Sue for blessing us. The kids are surely enjoying the baby turkeys you bought for them.
Matthew is in his glory. We are raising them for a couple of weeks in our basement. Keep them nice and warm.
… and sugar free chocolate. Keeps me away from the sweets and good for you! Black cocoa, coconut oil, cream, a little butter and stevia. I keep it in the fridge. I just enjoy a little spoonful each day.
