Recent Randomness, Grandkids and Michael's Birthday...

Hey, dears!!
Well, as the title pretty much sums up this here postling, we'll be off to pictures...
Around Mike's birthday, Kressant threw a lovely (and delicious) dessert bar party for her dear husband. What a wonderful evening! She made two fabulous cheesecakes, creamy milkshakes, and had ice cream and milk and everything! We played Rook, Guess Who, :) and Monopoly that evening, amidst much laughter, eating, talking and just having such a sweet family time.
Monopoly has been our craze lately.... :) Uncle Cleve and Critter (Michael III) havin' fun!
The exchanging of land...
LOL, Paul won that game-how cute! Such a smart little guy. Must have had to have been very frugal by the looks of his little stash. ;)
I now interrupt birthday pictures with a peek at Dee's adorable skirt she made the other day!! Isn't it precious, girls?
I love the fabric and trim she used.
And here's Sam Man. I just love his smile...

And.....drum roll, please---Ta-Da!! A fan! In the laundry room! Ah, it feels soo good in there now...Above is our dear, rejoicing laundress, showing off the little beauty.And, another little joy of life-we got a new ironing board cover while we were fixing up the room. :) It's even blue, y'all.
See, to match yon' walls!! How neat is that. Oh, what do y'all think of our new laundry room color? It used to be a yellow shade, and it made you feel hot in the summer, so we figured this cool toned blue would be refreshing. We're really happy at how it turned out! Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to liven up a room...
And, now back to birthday and Monopoly...LOL, Sam looks like he's been jipped or something.
The horse and rider are rejoicing over their newly acquired property...
LOL, I just love each of their expressions in this one...
Our dear Kress and little Carlos!! Michael about to blow out the little torches.... Happy Birthday, dear brother! We love you so much! Thanks for the wonderful time, y'all!!
And I shall end with a picture of the three (present here at the farm) grandchildren: Here's Mikey,
And Joe,And Carlos!! :D (This child has got some jaws-he makes us all laugh when he stuffs enormous objects in there! Haha!)

Ah. What cuties.

Well, gotta' run, y'all!

Love in Him,

Polls, anyone?

Take a minute to vote over on that poll to the right, would you please?
Thanks, y'all!! I just love these little things. :)

Hope everybody is having a wonderful Wednesday!

Martha Harriet

Here's my precious 'little' sister!! She was dear and let me use her for a photography subject-and such a lovely and delightful one! We three girls had a great time down in the woods, laughing, talking, climbing over fences...LOL, sisters are wonderful.
Here's my favorite one-although the 'picture' might could use some help, I love what the picture is of-it is so Martha-ish. She is always so joyful, even when she may be having a hard day or if circumstances may be difficult. She is such an inspiration to me.
Beautiful blue eyes!!

Anybody have a favorite? Oh, and if any of you photographers out there have any more pointers, please, as always, send them on!! I would be very grateful.

Well, gotta hop along, y'all...have a lovely Saturday afternoon. The Lord has helped me to catch up on some of the things I sorta' felt behind in. Isn't He good? :) He gives us such peace, even when we feel overwhelmed at times...Ah.

So blessed in Jesus,

Our Life of Late

Hello, dear people!

Ahh...So much of life-God is good! Also true to the title, it is late, as well. :D Here's what's been happening in the past few weeks.
First off, Pauly has been wounded-the poor lad tripped on the umbrella he was running with and sliced his little hoof open. After being rushed to the doctor and receiving 7 stitches and the orders to stay off that foot, our boy has taken to the couch and wheelchair, and has done a great job of occupying himself-looking at books, playing with kittens and pairing socks, a job that has earned him the title of Chief Sorter of Sockages. :) It's getting better everyday, praise God!Martha's mullin, mullen (?) plant is about to bloom!! Our dear Resident Herbalist is quite tickled. :)
And here's Carlos on Memorial Day-ah-does it get any cuter!?
Beautiful Grand Mama smiling at her grandbabies...
I subjected this poor child to my hoodie-torture. But doesn't he look cute!? He loved it! (well...Dorothy adds, "for a few seconds" ;) a statement to which I agree... :)
Cards. Do you have any of those things at your house that, no matter what you do, you can't seem to keep them in order? Ah! Cards were our lot. The rubber bands didn't do the job. Here's John Man, ever faithful, sorting them all out again. Since this picture was taken, however, The Lord gave us the idea of putting each deck into a little sandwich zip-lock bag, and it's worked!!! Tra-la! The Lord is so gracious to give us those little tips on house keeping.... :D
We had all the married kids and grandkids over Memorial day for a big dinner-we had such a great time. Here's a little plate detail....
And a rose detail-there's just something about raindrops on the velvet petals.
And---My people, read the signs above for your own safety, because...TA-Da!! No steps, dear-but look! See, Daddy and the boys are building a big deck/porch on the back of our home! We are very excited.
Oh, and see that window, farthest to the left, in the row of three? It was replaced with a door, so that way you can go to any floor of the house you want from outside, with out having to wind your way up from the inside. :) Lord willing, a second story "sleeping porch' will be the ceiling of the bottom porch, and there will be stairs leading up to it-then, from the Sleeping porch, stairs will lead up to those two windows at the very tip top, where the windows will be replaced with these French doors!
T'arn't they purty? The Lord blessed us with a great deal on it, too. I love the door handles...
And here it is, as of today. I believe new siding is in the plans, and can't you see Confederate Jasmine climbing up the pole things!!? God is so good.
Where many feet, Lord willing, will patter one day. With out the nails and screws, of course. :)
I saw this yellow mushroom and thought it was so interesting. The broken part's bottom 'pleats' are amazing!
Paul with the kittens, before his injury-aren't they adorable!?Church meeting was at our home last week-here, some of the men fellowship together...
and here are some of the girls visiting...
The hydrangeas are blooming down here!! They bring such delight to me!
Oh, Mama and Daddy just returned Saturday evening from their 27 wedding anniversary trip to Charles, SC-they left Wednesday, and had a wonderful time! They stayed at the Inn at Middleton Place, and enjoyed the lovely gardens and delicious food...we miss them lots here, and were so glad when they got back. It was fun for a day or two with it being all kids here, but after a little while, it got very, very old very quickly!! :D
I am so grateful for my parent's love for the Lord and each other, and for the beautiful picture of Christ and His Church that they live out...It's such a blessing to have parents who are so deeply in love after 27 years of marriage!! "It gets better everyday" Daddy says. This sunset was one of the most beautiful I've ever seen, I think. Ah, sun sets and rises bring such glory to their Maker!!
A Rusty Rake
Anna The Cat had 5 or 6 of the cutest little fluff balls recently-aren't they precious? There is one who is extra hairy, and he just cracks me up, especially when it rains and he gets wet-too funny!! See, there he is, in the middle-LOL!
Oh, on Sunday, for supper, we got pizza-haha, look! Tons of pizza!

Ahh...well, I hope to be back soon with more soon-I'm super behind on posting...and journaling, and writing and cleaning and sewing and studying. And allot of other things, it feels like. Ah! pray for me, when you think of it, that I would be diligent and get all that I need to get done, done. I know the Lord will help me. He is soo good!!!

Have a great afternoon, y'all!

Love in Him,
