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

~And what have we been doing?~

Written by Sue,SaturdayApril, 14, 2012                        absolutely a sun kissed day, temps, 80 degrees
This project is almost finished!  Just a few touch ups,  putting the gate back and adding the wire to keep unwanted guest from helping themselves to our dinner.

Savoring a few moments,... Can you see the mallards flying in the Carolina blue skies?
Meet our new orphaned lamb, how could a mother abandon a beautiful baby like this one, though her face is a little dirty from drinking and then playing in the dirt, she is still adorable, and has the sweetest personality, typical child, ~smile~ We have been feeding her for about three weeks.  She also is in need of a name! If you have a child that would like to help us name her, please let me know and I will put it in a hat, and draw it out.

She wants to be with us at all times, and when out of her pen she is alway near by, except when
running around,and up and down the rows in the  garden wanting me to play with her. What we really need around here are some grandchildren to help babysit , any volunteers? ~smile~
I have been busy gathering strawberries, making jam, recipe will come later, and let me tell you it is so simple and delicious.

"Whew! I am tired and need a rest!"says she. Animals are like us, they thrive on love, and kindness!

"Okay, nap time is over, now lets play."
"How much  do you love me? I know my face is dirty, but hey! I am just a kid."

This is what my lavender looked like two days ago, I didn't check it today as I was afraid the frost might have hurt it. I absolutely love the fragrance of lavender, and it is so pretty too!!
The bees were enjoying them too!
 This cabbage will soon be ready.
I must run as we are going to be visiting my favorite garden nursery, and making our hanging baskets today! We have also been planting and tending both veggie and flower gardens, repairing the farmhouse, painting and still savoring our days at the farm! God is good!! all the time , and yes!!! even in the trials of life we find His peace, and contentment in knowing Who is in charge.  Enjoy your day and savor each moment as they are gifts from our heavenly father.

I am so thrilled. I thought you went private but i see your newest post. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! Praise Jesus! Maybe I am showing how computer illiterate I am. Don't care. So thrilled! In His love, Kim

Oh what a cutie pie you're babysitting. If Sam or Jake are by anytime this weekend, I'll have them take a peek and see what they come up with. (That would be interesting.) Wonder what your own grandgirlies would come up with, too.

As always, you're busy. I can not get over all the things you are already harvesting — strawberries! Yummo.

Hello mother,

The farm looks beautiful as always!My garden is a few weeks behind yours. My onions are half your size. Wish we were there to pick some strawberries. Where are the tomatoes? The lamb is so cute! The name that I am picking is precious. Love you and give Daddy my love as well. xoxoxo

Your one and only daughter,
Susie "Q"

So glad you updated. What a lovely lamb. I can see how she keeps you company.
I love how good your garden looks already and your strawberries a luscious. I am supposed to be drying my hair so we can go to the nursery too today. Here I am on the computer.
I have missed you so much.
We have had such rain, we can't get out to the garden yet.
No frost, just wind, rain and hail.
We even have had a tornado.
Have a lovely weekend, Will you post pictures of your new green house soon?
Bye for now,

Patsy April 14, 2012 at 1:00 PM  

So glad to see your post, enjoy seeing the cute lamb and the garden.

Aww, he is sweet! You are ahead of us with the veggies- we put our onions in the ground a couple of weeks ago. Love your quote- just finished Beth Moore's Mercy Triumphs study of James. It was fantastic!

Doniene April 14, 2012 at 1:43 PM  

Hi Sue, always thrilled to see your posts!! I can tell that your seasons are a little ahead of us - such a lovely garden!! Such a cute little lamb!! I have 8 bottle goats - so cute, but sometimes so annoying!! LOL

Have a blessed day!!

NanaNor's April 14, 2012 at 1:49 PM  

Hi Sue, As always you are so busy with the upkeep on your land and garden-great job! Love your lamb,so very cute! Oh your strawberries look incredible. At home spring was just starting, the yard greening up but here in the islands, I'm just soaking up the sun. It is always such a blessing to visit you-just wish it were in person.
Hugs, Noreen

You have been busy - with all the wonderful life things...

That lamb is cute - I'll ask my kids if they have a name suggestion.

The farm is beautiful!


Debbie April 14, 2012 at 3:02 PM  

Oh it is so nice to come by for a visit today! The farm as always looks soo good. The lamb is just adorable. My grandson Jeffie would just LOVE to baby sit. Wish he could see this all in person, he would hardly be able to contain himself. Your strawberries look sooo good, and how I LOVE LOVE LOVE strawberry jam, yum. But I especially love the lavender. The look and the smell. Enjoy your day! HUGS

That photo of your little orphan running through the garden is so darn cute.
Haven't we been having the most beautiful weather here in NC? I was looking at my one little strawberry plant today and counted three flowers. I was excited by that, but thrilled to see your beautiful bounty and that cabbage looks so delicious and healthy.
I'm so glad you share life on your farm with us. I thoroughly enjoy my visits.

Jenni April 14, 2012 at 9:46 PM  

Hello, dear Sue! Such fun to catch up with you on the farm today..... and oh, the lambie is adorable.... love the pic of her wanting your attention to play with the shoe strings.....

and those strawberries look so yummy..... LOVE strawberries, peaches, necterines, and cantaloupe..... to me, they are all blessings of summer....


Debbie April 14, 2012 at 9:58 PM  

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I want to live on Pear Tree Lane Farm. Yeah, I know... I probably wouldn't want all the work.

But the lamb would have to make it all worth it! If I had a child around here, I would ask them to name her. Since I don't I'll just wait for the update.

It's nice to see an update from you, Sue!

Christine April 15, 2012 at 1:02 AM  

You have been BUSY!
And that what I think you should name the lamb, Busy. What a face.

Your grandchildren's words are so full of love to you and their grandpa. What a blessing.

Walking on Sunshine... April 15, 2012 at 5:49 PM  

Love all the photos you always share with us. The strawberries look delicious just as they are, but I'm sure even better as jam! Hope you had a nice Sunday!

Cheryl April 16, 2012 at 1:01 AM  

Sue, I just love the new photo you have in your header! It is the perfect one to represent your blog name...the pear trees in the foreground, the beautiful farmhouse...perfect!

As always, I am so happy to see you pop in with news of your life on the farm. What a sweet little lamb! Bekah is in bed (I'm up way too late...again), but I'll try to remember to ask her for a name idea. She will oooh and aaah when she sees him, I am sure.

Your new fence looks great, as do those gorgeous hanging baskets on the porch.



Elena April 16, 2012 at 11:22 AM  

Your garden is beautiful! Mary loved the little lamb. She loved it so much she would like to suggest, Love, as a name for her :)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter April 16, 2012 at 12:57 PM  

Oh, how sweet! The little lamb is just so adorable. And I love how your new fence is looking!
Your garden is coming along so nicely and the strawberries are looking delicious. I love strawberries and wish I had a good spot to grow them.
I always enjoy seeing what's going on at your place, Sue! What a delightful post!

Southern Lady April 16, 2012 at 8:59 PM  

So good to catch up with you, Sue ... your little friend is adorable (I think Sunshine would be a good name for her), and I loved seeing the pictures of your garden. Everything looks so pretty and fresh and the fence is the icing on the cake!

So glad you're feeling well and enjoying things again.

Take care ...

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.
