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

~I have no idea what to title this post~

Written by Sue, Tuesday, March 25, 2014             cold with rain, temps. low 40's
Do you ever have days when you work and work and feel as though you didn't accomplish anything, that was me yesterday. After washing dishes I started the laundry, went to the master bedroom closet and saw it was a mess,(I already new it needed cleaning,and organizing).

 so I  started cleaning it, which meant more clothes to wash, before I had finished this job, I found myself in the dining room looking at some bewildered plants, this is as far as I got on organizing the closet.

Off to the sink the plants went for a good soaking, would you believe my Thanksgiving cactus is still blooming, while I was waiting for some of the plants to drain and to finish the others, I noticed.....
Miss Lucy Lou needed to get spruced up for spring, off I went to find her outfit, she has one for every holiday of the year. She thanked me and wished me 'Happy Spring".

 Then it was back to laundry folding and putting away,... phone rings, a dear friend called inviting us to their church supper , that meant quiting everything before it was finished to get dressed, this was the best offer of the day, I find spending time with friends especially if they are experiencing difficult situations and just needing to talk more important.  This country girl loves dinners like this, listening to folks who just saw each other the day before talking as if they had not seen one another in a long while, just brought a smile to me. Yes, that is me stuffing my mouth, I don't usually use both hands to eat, just a slip, it must have been that good old southern cooking. ~smile~
When we got home we remembered the fruit trees needed wrapping,as old man winter was coming back, even this job was incomplete as we ran out of coverings.
Today is Tuesday, I would love to report that the closet is finished, that all of the plants are watered, and that our laundry is washed, dried, folded and put away, but that would not be truthful, I 'm still working on the laundry, closet, and plants, in between chores, I decided to make a chocolate pie , watch an old movie (Adam Has Four Sons) with Mr P. and I am getting bedrooms upstairs ready for company this weekend.
This is the easiest pie to make.
I hope you are having a blessed day,

Well it sounds to me that you got a lot accomplished. Glad you were able to get out and enjoy your friends and good food!

Barb March 25, 2014 at 5:19 PM  

Hi Sue!

I made me tired just reading your post! My goodness you are a busy girl! Does it seem to you that the more we try to do, the more behind we get?! So glad you got a chance to be with friends though, and a church dinner is always a good thing!

Love your, Miss Lucy Lou - she's adorable!!

Haha! Sounds like after all that work you needed a break of pie and TV. :-) Your wrapped trees remind me that this year I need to build a CAGE around my newest apple tree to keep the rabbits from devouring it next winter!

Cranberry Morning March 25, 2014 at 6:06 PM  

P.S. I'm following you via Feedly. :-)

Vee March 25, 2014 at 7:18 PM  

Hahahaha...thank you for including that photo of you and your beloved at the church supper. You are so cute and your hubby's expression is priceless. Love it!

Sorry that spring is bouncing around so for you and hope that it settles down. As for closets...well, you're a brave gal to tackle it at all.

Cheryl March 25, 2014 at 8:11 PM  

Sue, this post makes me smile, as it sounds more like my style...going from one thing to the next without finishing either of them! I guess it happens to everyone from time to time! :D

I think you made a good choice by going to the dinner though. Chores will wait, but the opportunity to be with friends is priceless.

Happyone March 25, 2014 at 8:37 PM  

Yes, I have days like that too. : )
Still you got a lot almost done!!

Mrs.Rabe March 25, 2014 at 8:41 PM  

I love days like these that are filled with home keeping work!

That pie looks delicious!


Lea March 25, 2014 at 9:09 PM  

I'd love to drop by, share a piece of that pie and a cuppa coffee and have a nice visit with you. I bet we could talk for hours.

And, I love cleaning out, organizing and getting the laundry done.

Sounds like a great day topped off by sharing special time with a friend.

Blackberry Lane March 25, 2014 at 9:10 PM  

You have been busy! As I walk from room to room, I get distracted about what to work on first! Your pie makes me hungry.

The Quintessential Magpie March 25, 2014 at 11:03 PM  

You are far ahead of me! I keep getting totally off track, Sue.

Nothing like being with friends at church. :-)

That pie = yum!

And I loved your shepherd post yesterday. I couldn't find the comments so I am leaving one here.



Debbie March 25, 2014 at 11:49 PM  

Well can't tell you how many days like this I have. Though I have been procrastinating on our closet for at least 3 weeks now! Sounds to me like you made the best choice though. The pie looks scrumptious!

Cheryl @ TFD March 26, 2014 at 1:41 AM  

Being with friends takes priority over housework anytime! I get started on one project and jump to another and, consequently, nothing gets done. Your pie looks good and if it weren't my bedtime, I'd be looking for something chocolate! :)

Elena March 26, 2014 at 2:12 AM  

Your chocolate pie looks so good. I know I need to organize and clean Mary's closet :) I always love to come here and visit. So sweet and so refreshing!

podso March 26, 2014 at 8:12 AM  

Wow that sounds like my kind of day except i would not get so much accomplished! So good of you to jump up and join your friends who needed encouragement.

Christine March 26, 2014 at 4:08 PM  

Sounds like just another day at the Farm.... lol! Your day, it's seems, is similar to days we all have had, me included.
By the way, great title!

Farm Girl March 26, 2014 at 7:06 PM  

It looks like one of my days. I do that so often I start and then something come in to get my attention. It all looks good to me though. I hope the freeze didn't hurt your trees.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch March 28, 2014 at 5:20 PM  

This is exactly how I clean- I flit from one job to another to another- the only difference is I don't usually get too much accomplished. At least you finish things! LOL! The pie looks yummy.

Debbie March 30, 2014 at 6:16 AM  

Spending a few minutes trying to catch up this morning, and your post title caught my eye and then made me grin. I'm grinning WITH you because you described the story of my life perfectly. I guess I could title my life and your post, "The Best Laid Plans".

You did get a lot accomplished... just not what you planned. Grin.

GratefulPrayerThankfulHeart March 30, 2014 at 7:40 PM  

Well, it sounds to me that you did get a lot accomplished just in different areas :). The fellowship with friends and the movie and pie seems just right!

Kris Anderson April 1, 2014 at 11:58 AM

SarahGeorge April 2, 2014 at 4:27 AM  

It's always great reading your busy posts :) I smiled for this line "listening to folks who just saw each other the day before talking as if they had not seen one another in a long while, just brought a smile to me" I think I fall in the same line :) I too like good gatherings :)Your pie looks great and so is Lucy :) Have a great day!

Hi I am a new follower coming over from Happy One's blog. I love your blog and will be following along. I love reading positive blogs that show how wonderful and satisfying life can be. See you again soon!

Post a Comment

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.
