It's that time of year when farmers begin to think, and prepare for the next year's growing season. Our strawberry sets arrived this week and we got them in the ground with no problems. We use black plastic with drip irrigation....All 500 plants.
Hopefully by the end of April we will have plenty of luscious berries.....
We had a group of friends from our church here on Wednesday evening, for our Thanksgiving-Christmas dinner. There was seventeen of us, and we had a great time of fellowship. DH and I have been busy getting ready for this occasion, we love to have our friends over to eat and fellowship.
I was elected to carve the turkey, but if you look closely there is a shadow standing beside me just waiting to grab the knife, and finally ended up with it, when I was called to another room by dh. The ladies in our church can really put on a spread.
The dining room waiting for guests to sit down and enjoy time together. Remember I said I combined Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations together. I like to have everything done so to enjoy time with family when they come home!
I took my camera and went out on the farm yesterday for some photos...
The Bradford pear trees were in their full glory, while standing beneath these beautiful trees I was in awe of God's handiwork. and would you believe I found this....
by the pond sitting in a pot on the deck, dh said that the trees had protected it from the cold and frost. Quite a contrast wouldn't you think so? They are both so beautiful.
Before I leave I must show you a photo of two of my favorite people...
This is my sweetie and a very dear lady at our church, she is very special to us... This photo was taken a few weeks ago, when dh crashed a baby shower that I attended. Aren't they cute, yes they both have their pacifiers. lol My dh is such a good sport about everything.
And now dear friends, may I wish you and your family a most blessed Thanksgiving. This is the season when we are especially thankful for our many blessings, and I have so many that I cannot count them, but please know that you all are among my most thankful blessings, and what a privilege to know you.
Psalm 103:1-2 Bless the Lord, oh my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not all His benefits;
This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."
My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.
