The mornings Country Boy isn't heading off to work we have our usual routine. Either he comes home from work or we wake up and go sit on our back porch to have our morning coffee. That is, of course, once all the cats are fed, otherwise, there would be no peace and quiet! We sit and talk about what went on during his shift, we talk about our dreams, we make plans and sometimes we sit quietly and listen to the birds and the wildlife around us. The other morning it was extremely foggy. Country Boy took this shot when the sun finally broke through the fog (I was in the house getting us some more coffee and nature doesn't wait for you to refill your mug!) I'm so glad he grabbed my camera and got this shot!
There was some excitement both in the garden and kitchen today. While I was kneading the bread dough, Country Boy came in with our first crop of green onions!
We really enjoy seeing (and eating!) the fruits of our labor. I'm not sure if everything tastes better because of the effort put in to grow it or if it's because they're picked when they are ripe. Either way, we reap the benefit!
I also had great success in bread making today. I tried yesterday to make the same bread but my yeast was old and the bread was flat as a pancake and hard as a rock. The coons and squirrels enjoyed it though!
This is after an hour long rise time. Looks pretty good so far!
And for the finale...
It was delicious! Country Boy had a couple of pieces with our homemade peach jelly on it for lunch and I had a slice with butter. Yummy!
I will post the recipe on my Recipes page. So check it out if you are interested!
Speaking of Recipe page, for those of you who have been following for awhile, did you notice the format change of my blog? What do you think? The cats have their own page now and the new chicks will probably have their own page as well! Eventually, I will add a few more tabs.
Even though the title of this post is 'Life is Good', please don't get me wrong and think that our lives are perfect with no stress or troubles. I know it can sound like that from reading what is posted on my blog, but I tend to post things that are positive and make me happy because I am hoping to help someone else look for the blessings in their life as well. Everyone has positives and negatives in their life. Choose to focus on the positives and the negatives will seem, well, less negative!
We are currently praying about Country Boys' job situation. Some changes are going to be made six months from now and we're praying for wisdom, guidance and direction. Our RV is also currently in the shop undergoing some major engine work. We don't even want to know what the total expense will be on that. But you know what? We're believing Phillippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. NIV
So, yea, our Life is Good! We are very blessed and will continue to focus on our blessings and pray for wisdom and guidance in all the other areas of concern.
I hope you can name and be thankful for the blessings in your life!
Till next time,
