Where you go, I will go; where you live, I will live. Your people will be my people for your God is my God.

Rain, rain.

It’s an overcast Saturday afternoon and I can hear both my men breathing heavy as they sleep.  I’ve been a mom long enough to learn to enjoy the stillness while it lasts….and enjoy the crazy once it begins again! 

I, too, was blessed with an afternoon nap, but the wee little lass decided it was time to be on the move again.  I can’t help but smile each time she starts flopping around.  It takes my breath away to think of the wonder of a little life inside my belly.  Sometimes that breath being taken away is only figurative, but most of these days, its quite literal too! 

Our days have been rainy of late.  Tis’ the season.   They mean more time at home, cooler days, and a lot more togetherness.  I love it!  It does make shopping and outings a bit more complicated though.  We are high enough in elevation that flooding and other nasty side affects, really don’t reach  us.  I wish I could say the same for our neighbors across the state and country.  

Another wonderful affect of all the rain is the GREEN.  My garden looks more like a jungle.  And it makes the rest of the world think I have a green thumb. You and I know better, but we’ll just keep that our little secret, okay? 

The days come with patches of sunshine and we’ll drop most anything to get outside to enjoy it, cause we know it won’t last too long.  Below are some pictures Job and I took a few days ago….

Grass, in desperate need of a hair cut.  The roses behind it are in five gallon buckets, just to give you an idea of how tall it is.  Once its dry! 1368798_522300307848010_2065991008_n Squash beginning to blossom.


Morning glories, not yet flowering, but beginning their clime up our 15ft walls.  I dream of the day they will spill over!1370241_522300321181342_1877725078_nTomatoes.  Both the green and red varieties.  



Beans, cilantro, and cucumbers. 

Cilantro, thyme, and lettuce are the only things in harvest at the moment, but it looks like it won’t be long till we bring in a few other things as well!
