There is nothing quite like the morning I have had already. I got up knowing I would be taking one child to the doctor as soon as RevMrKnowTea got out the door himself. He is driving back to Ruston to officiate a funeral for a lady who attended the church there. Lottie had fever Sunday night, low grade, but fever is still fever with the 24 hour rule. I broke it to her that she would have to stay home Monday from school. She is a routine child! I prepared myself mentally for one of her melt downs, but she did well. She was sad and cried, but she did well in spite of her bad news. She woke up yesterday doing seemingly well and we went on about our day. Last night at dinner we noticed she has some drainage in her right eye. This morning both eyes were practically “glued” shut from the drainage. Off to the doctor we went.
We spent an hour and a half at the doctor’s office. I got home to find my sweet sweet Windy cat had a large gash in her foot and she was hiding in my office. So back out the door I went with my kitty to the vet clinic. UGH! She was such a good kitty for them. I have always said she is the sweetest thing and she proved it today. THe doc cut off the excess skin (hey! at least I’m not posting pics of it) and said she was keeping it good and clean and he’d rather let her take care of it. So a couple of shots and one hour and forty-five minutes later I was back in the car.

Advent – coming. Today marks the beginning of the church year. These next four weeks (approximate) of preparation and anticipation of the birth of Christ. For those who do not know what the church year (a.k.a. the liturgical year) is the best explanation I can give: it is the observance of the life and ministry [...]

I was going to title this post Dropped Ball, but I already get interesting Google hits as it is. Sorry. I dropped the ball these last few days of NaBloPoMo. It was simply too busy to get much done. I had the last few posts set and ready; they were supposed to self-publish at a [...]

Our favorite pumpkin pie! I always have to make at least two of these at Thanksgiving. There must be enough for everyone on Thanksgiving day, but the tradition is Pumpkin Pie for breakfast the Friday after Thanksgiving. These are a must! It is better than a doughnut! We will bake, make, or take any excuse [...]

Here are the list of chickens I am hoping to get soon. Ultimately I want between 25 and 30 chickens. We cook lots of eggs, but I want to share and sell them as well.

Two more hours this morning clearing brush and vines and small trees. We can see sunshine in the back of the lot now. We even found some neighbors we never knew were back there. We still have a good bit to do. We are concentrating on clearing the perimeter where we are putting the fencing. [...]
