My Garden is My Happy Place, Where Is Yours?

My garden is my happy place, a creative outlet. Do you have a happy place?

Life goes on, doesn't it?

Our lives have changed so much since we moved to Oak Hill almost fourteen years ago. I'm not talking about the changes we've made on purpose, such as striving to live a more sustainable and healthy life; instead, I mean things that life has thrown at us. But life marches onward, and we all need to roll with the punches and make the best of them.

Silver Sunday

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

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

- rain in August
- our riding lawnmower
- hummingbirds
- my horse Ella's long eyelashes
- my glasses
Silver Sunday

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; 
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30 NIV

A Slice of My Life

I think squash curlicues are so cute. I bet you do too.
See the baby squash in the background? I hand-pollinated
three flowers over the weekend; I noticed 
that several little squash nubs turned black
and didn't develop as they should, and I think it's
because they weren't well-pollinated. Crossing my fingers
that there will be three more baby squash on the vine.


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams
of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. Join me here:
