Hunting ,porch swing

    What could be better on an early afternoon, than sweet tea, porch swing and a nice breeze. I have the windows open and the house airing. Sheets on the line and heavy winter coats drying in the breeze. Saving electricity  and peace of mind.  Those sheets blowing in the wind remind me of us five kids playing around our clothes line growing up, until mom caught  us and ran us off……. that woman could run. With 5 kids she needed too and climb trees to get us Oh yes she would, good days..
    Thought about going mushroom hunting but really not good for me to go alone. My brother will be here to go sometime soon and I’ll wait on him. Do you like mushroom hunting? We stock up all we can, but they go fast. It had rained last night and this morning so they should even be popping out more, well that’s it I talked myself in to going anyway…… have a good day I’ll see ya in the woods..


Coffee smelling good

      Breakfast is done and kitchen cleaned up, load of laundry on the line and now enjoying blog time and coffee. Hubby has went to pick up wood, to restock what we have used this winter. I can not say enough how much I love our outdoor furnace, it has saved us so much money the last 4 years that it has now paid for itself.

   I am hoping to get a few things planted today if all goes well. My plants that I had out before the frost have done well, I did lose one but it has a green leave started so it didn’t die out just yet. I should have covered them  better but ….

       Been a short night, really couldn’t sleep a sound sleep, I have decided this will always happen when I have to work the next night. I go in tonight at 12 to serve the 3rd shift a light meal, and to make donuts for all those churches who have placed orders and want them by 5. I will be off at 8, then off meet my family at church, followed by a dinner at my brothers, I hope. Then home for a short while before I crash into my pillow for the night. Just to start it back up at  3 the next morning. Everyone have a Happy Easter!!!!!!!!

Flooded road

I’m sitting on the porch swing just before daylight .The Birds are busy getting the morning breakfast I guess because they are chirping like crazy. I can hear turkeys in the woods and see the dawn coming up. 

 It’s a peaceful place to be. I would of worked today but with the flood, comes our roads blocked off. I have a lake out my back door, side door and in front a river rageing but for now I’m drinking coffee enjoying the sounds of nature. I can’t think of a better song, or view.

Today it was suppost to get to 70. I can’t wait, the breeze is blowing and I will put some wash on the line and air the house from it’s winter slumber. I would like to move my small lilac bush. Would love to have it’s pretty smell coming through the house. Not sure if I can or not might have to wait on the hubby….

Guess I’ll get to the laundry……..and the fresh air.



Yearly Food

We first had snow now we are having a flood! My prayers to all those who are in the waters path. We will be flooded in, in the next few hours. The pantry is full and water is stocked. All the roads that lead to our house flood over 6ft or more. We can’t leave because of livestock and well to tell the truth the people who boat in to rob you while your out. My kids always enjoyed the floods they could stay home from school and ride their bikes,skate, everywhere because there was no cars. They would play forever just checking things out. I’ll put in pictures as soon as the water hits,right now it looks like it will take about a foot to get us stuck in.
