Lazy Sunday Afternoon

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,

cute little dirt kitty! :)

one of the blogs I follow has been relocating hives and combining them (since once was too small to survive). it's interesting, to say the least. having to determine if they have a queen, patience, patience, patience, etc.

Loving me some Hunter! Just want to kiss his little face.!!! I can't wait to see how that pans out. Oh, and the sermon for us yesterday was on tithing too - gee, you think that Someone is trying to get a point across? Loving the way the Lord moves. :)
