Starry Night Crib Quilt (Homestead Crafts)

The making of the Starry Night crib quilt

How to Build a Summer Compost Pile

How to build a summer compost pile.

Last year I began composting in earnest. Before that, I'd done it in a haphazard, small-scale fashion but when I expanded the garden and needed to fill those new raised beds, my homegrown compost was the best way to go.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- bees on the squash flowers in the garden
- the first red tomatoes
- listening to the large population of mockingbirds this year singing in the mornings
- watching three young wild rabbits chase each other in circles in the barnyard
- letting the 2-month-old chicks loose in the coop 
Silver Sunday

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1,2 NIV
