~To live, love, and journal our days at~

Good Saturday morning!
written by Sue, Saturday December 4,2010

It is Saturday, isn't it?
 I have been so busy this week, finishing projects that have been on my "to do" list for a long while. It took us two days, yes, I said two days to get our garage cleaned and organized. Oh! I am one  happy camper that it is completed!

Before we started Mr P said "oh! we will have this done in three hours." I just smiled and said to myself , "I wish." And would have taken a picture to show you but was to embarrassed to do so. lol

We were so tired from this job, that we took the next day off, and loafed, lol and then we were even more tired, but  both  were a "good kinda tired".There is a feeling of accomplishment after completing a job like this that I can't find words for except this one "relief."
When going through all of that stuff, I mean treasures, I found a hidden one.

Let's see, what could be hiding in all this bubble wrap?
Have you guessed yet?
A plant stand! I have been wanting one to put some of my plants on in the M-bath, but is wasn't priority on my shopping list, as having food, electricity  in the house was priority, besides the Lord knew I already had one and He knew where it was and had me find it.

This plant stand has been bought for years, and was put in the garage, why I don't know. It must have  really been on sale, as  I don't buy unless it is on sale, and then marked down some more. Truth is I  just forgot about it. Now I know you ladies have never done anything like this, now have you?lol 
My plants are so happy, and so is my bathroom. Plants add so much to a home, even though some around here think I might have gone a little overboard. lol

....Do you remember my goal, of having all Christmas decorations up, and cards addressed by Dec. 1st. Yank! not done! The garage saw to it that this was postponed. lol. I have finished inside,(well almost) and cards are going to be done tonight. That is if I  don't get  side tracked by another project. lol
Enjoy your weekend!
Ecclesiastes 2:24~There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This  also I saw,that it was from the hand of God.

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

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.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
