~All God's Creatures~

Written by Sue, Friday, September 6, 2013     beautiful sunny, temps. 80's low humidity. 
 Here are a few visitors to the farm, that I was able to capture with my camera lens. I love nature, and if you think your children and grandchildren might like these feel free to download them.
These were feasting on my blueberry bush. I wasn't to impressed with these.

 I found this one napping.
This one just wanted to strut his stuff. Dragon flies are very friendly, and love to pitch on our shoulders, or hands.
 This one is a first for me, look at the details,his skin looked and felt like leather. If you can identify please let me know. God certainly has a sense of humor, only a mother could love this face. ~smile~
As you can see it doesn't take much to entertain me. Though I have been very productive this week, making applesauce, and apple juice. I can now say the  apple trees in the orchard are bare of fruit.whoopee!!! I added no sugar, didn't need any, but know if I want to I can add spices and sugar later. So nice to know I can pronounce the ingredients in the applesauce...apples and water.
I have no fall decorations up inside the farmhouse yet, hopefully next week.
Until next time,

Just beautiful, the apple jars that is.
The little critters are fun to look at but ugh!
Hard to think about fall decorations , it just got here to soon for me.

Dear, dear Sue, I just caught up on your last few posts - always bring a smile to my lips and a song to my heart! Love all your produce - mine is/was very slim this year, but am thankful for every jar I've put away! Your photos are so fun! Thank you for the sweet post about your mom - she is so lovely and what a treasure to be able to share some time with her! My mom has been gone 14 years now - but I do have wonderful memories of her. Now I try to be the mom to my girls that God desires me to be.

Blessings and hugs in abundance sent your way!

Wow! I am totally impressed with your photography...really good pictures! Somehow I just know your applesauce is wonderful. I did get my test results back and I am not diabetic, however my fasting blood sugar is a little high so I really do need to watch my diet. I need to lose weight. But with my knees and not being able to exercise much it is soo hard. Thanks for the prayers Sue, I SOO appreciate it. Have a wonderful week-end!

Pandora Sphinx for the leathery brown guy, but is that second photo a frog? I think an inquisitive mind is a healthy one!

The older I get the more in awe I am of God's creativity in designing our world and all that lives in it!

Oh Sue! I love the dragonfly...the others I'd rather see from a distance. I prefer critters with fur. ~smile~

You have been a busy gal...no shocker there! You're going to enjoy that yummy applesauce this winter!

No autumn decorations here either. We've been too busy this week with Ron off from work. Maybe Monday...

Have a great weekend, friend!

Great pictures of your little friends! I'm sure the applesauce & juice is wonderful. You are going to really enjoy your bounty this winter.


Cheryl @ TFD September 7, 2013 at 2:26 AM  

I love nature, too, and marvel at God's creations. But, I am like the other Cheryl and prefer critters with fur. However, I do like the dragonfly. :)

The applesauce looks so good. It made me think of my dad. He used to put applesauce in a glass of milk! Yuck! I never could figure out why he would want to do that. Oh, the things we never forget! Ha!

Love your nature photos!! And I also like to can things with minimal ingredients. I've been making/freezing lots of spaghetti sauce with just veggies and herbs (and ok a "pinch" of brown sugar too .. lol). -Tammy

You got great shots of these interesting creatures! And some delicious looking applesauce :)

Elena September 12, 2013 at 12:35 AM  

I loved your critter pics. The first one I had to enlarge before I could see it was a frog with lots of hair. Your applesause looks yummy!

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.
