Hello, dear Friends, my,... it has been quite a while since we have visited, much to long for sure. I will try and make this a short post  today, as I want to have some time to visit  over at your homes.

The past nine months have had a few ups and downs, mainly dealing with a few health issues with myself and family, last fall my Mother was in the hospital for a lengthy stay, and was doing quite well until this past week, she now has a chronic case of bronchitis as well as a bad sinus infection that is affecting her eyes. Please remember her in your prayers.Thank you so much.

Like you and as always  I am so busy with farm chores and it seems I am always looking and finding new ways to preserve food, there is always something brewing on the kitchen counter top and pantry shelves.

 I learned to make fire cider, good for immune system.

Have I mentioned that I learned to make apple cider vinegar, It turned out so well.

We planted our vegetable gardens, the garlic is really growing, as you can see I need to do some weeding.

The potatoes are really big, it looks like there will be an early harvest.

I will be replenishing  the  herb garden as soon as this weather clears up. I have already purchased a few herb, to plant Saturday.

We also visited our favorite wholesale nursery for our ferns which have been repoted into hanging baskets.

I enjoy this time of year, everything refreshes itself, there seems to be more optimism in the air of new beginnings,{Hope} if you will, If there was ever a time for Hope for a brighter future it is now. Always my  Faith and trust  remains  in the Lord Jesus Christ! 

Much love from me to you,


p.s. So sorry for long and boring post,💤😱💤

Well Sue you can make more than I can. I can make a mess. LOL. I thought the canned things looked interesting but was not sure what it was. I like that you have a green house. Nice. Praying for your mom, we all love our mommies. I sure do miss mine. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
