While many of our friends were enjoying this beautiful Florida day, which means they were at the beach, Bikefest, or just loafing, Country Boy and I heard a wonderful sermon on tithing. Yep, you read that right... Tithing! Of all things! Our pastor did a fantastic job of reminding us that everything we have belongs to God and He only asks for 10% to go back to Him to further His work. He also stressed that the most important factor is not tithing so much as it's a personal relationship with Him!
We then went out to eat some yummy Mexican food with our neighbors (and chauffeurs!), then came home, read up on BeeKeeping and promptly took a nap on the couch! Ya gotta love lazy Sunday afternoons!
And yes, I said Beekeeping! Good grief, I can hear my Mom saying now why in the world would we want to keep bees?! One of the blogs I follow, Jayme from Tales of the Coop Keeper (just love her!), showed a video of her not too long ago where she was getting the honey from the hive. I could almost smell the delicious honey right through my computer! And I LOVE honey! After telling Country Boy about her video and mentioning that we should get some bees, he agreed since he knows how much honey I eat and the price of honey in the grocery store. Not to mention the price of delicious, RAW honey which is slightly more. Anyway, we'll do a little studying up on it but hopefully before long we'll be BeeKeepers!

This is actually another step towards our goal of being self-sufficient and living off the land. The way things are going in this country, I'm glad we're taking these steps now towards becoming self-sufficient.
And for all you Hunter lovers... here's some Hunter silliness!
So much for being a black cat!
Aw! But who can resist such a face!
I hope you've had a lazy Sunday afternoon also!
Till next time,
