Your once yearly, visit to the farm, post.

I know, I know...if you wanted to see pictures of farm life, you wouldn't come here to view it through the lens of my point and shoot. That's what the Pioneer Woman is for, that gal can weave an entire post around a single, wrangler clad hiney, let's face it...she makes country livin look good.

There will however, be no wrangler clad hineys in this post. Believe me, you're welcome.

With the way PW has turned her husbands hired hands into stars, it has really put the pressure on all of us regular farmwife bloggers, you should hear the tantrums...

"BUT! Whyohwhy am I not a blogstar...I've got wranglers!!! This is a bunch of hogwash...I'm moving to Oklahoma!"

If I had a pound of cotton for every time I've had to listen to that song and dance.

Anyway, he asked for it...

Meet Puddin'

Alright, I admit...I made 'Pippi' up... that's not his real name at all.

But PUDDIN, Puddin, I did not...

In facts:

A) The guy has 'PUDDIN' emblazoned oh his belt, I hear it's on his checkbook too. Don't laugh. Too hard.

B) I actually refer to him as Puddin'g', heavy emphasis on the ing.

C) The proof is in the puddin...

How you like me now, Jello?

Uh, your mom's got a camera and a computer...

Take that, Tapioca.

What Farmers Do ALL Day. A Postumentary.

There's a lot of sitting in the dappled shade of old oak trees, sippin on mason jars of sweet tea, with wedges of orange and sprigs o'mint.

Farmers like to sit back and take it easy,
when they're not out delivering doughnuts, that is.

Little Sprout calls them "Nonuts".

The donuts... not the farmers.

Occasionally, there might be a little mechanic work to be done.

"What a ratchet! This job sockets."
Looks like Cow's about to throw a disc out.
I need more farmers reading this blog, they would have got that.

Hey Puddin, If you're thinking that you might pursue this line of work, I thought it only fair to show this 'side by side' comparison of where you'll be in ten years, or rather, where your hair won't be.
This one is my favorite, it's the moment they realized one of the Sprouts had walked away with their tools.


Welders and Grinders, Welders and Grinders
Navy Beans, Navy Beans
Welders and Grinders

Puddin? How come whenever I stop by, Mama Cow is always kneelin down to pray?

Is it me?

Is it you?

The shot I wanted.

The shot I got........


"I want you to hold that great big wrench up where I can see it."

"No, make it look natural."

"This feels pretty natural."

What a tool.
If you don't own a single piece of John Deere clothing,
and you've made it this far, I applaud you.

Vanna Cow seriously wanted me to write about the befores and afters of these thingies. There's like 8 more of these shots. You're welcome, again.
Well, looks like the guys are ready for plowing and bedding.

Micheal Scott, you can take it from here.

Dear Lord

Dear Lord,
As I sit here reminding myself that You called me into motion. I am not here to merely exist or to serve myself. You called me, you have a plan for me, I have a purpose.
Lord, I ask that you keep me humble enough to be your servant and to always be mindful of others.
I am here to serve you , to love others, and to spread the word of Jesus Christ Your Son who died and paid the ultimate price for me. I can't repay that debt, but I can do what you have called me to do.
To be obedient, keep your commandments, love one another.

Father, I thank you for your word, for your unfailing love for me. For your GRACE, MERCY, and FORGIVNESS you have  given me. Thank you for revealing to me piece by piece your will for me.
It is an honor to serve you Lord.
In Jesus mighty & Holy Name AMEN!!!!!

My Love

Where do I ever begin here......

What could I ever possible say to you, that you don't already know?

Your the best man a woman could have.
Your an awesome father.
All these things you know.

I just wanted to take a minute and let the whole wide world know
just how much you mean to me.
Words will never be enough
Love you more than the day I married you (how is that possible)

Your my rock, my shoulder to cry on
my ear to listen
my hand to hold
my eyes to sit and stare upon
my partner, my companion
my prayer warrior

You always put God first
then me before yourself

Your my encourager
my drive

I just love you....

Love your wife, B

Baseball time

My youngest had a baseball tournament this weekend and these are the only three pictures I got before my camera died. But I am every proud of them .They played three games in ONE day and lost only one game by one run. They didn't even have there regular coach with them, was almost late because the major highway was shut down due to a cattle truck turning over, so while they waited on the side of the road they got out and warmed up and threw the ball around. CRAZY KIDS......they were awesome.

Heavy Heart

I have a lot of things going through my  mind today. I received a challenge, and I took it. The challenge was to read 1 Peter. Yes, the whole book everyday for 1 week. I am on day 3. I decided to read it in a different Bible version each day. So far I have gotten something new from it daily, but that how God's Word works isn't it?

You know He gave us an example to live by, Jesus and we are to do as He did.I am finding myself struggling with this. Why you ask???? Think about it. We make sure we have life ins. We have 401K's we plan for the future, just in case we need it. We have savings accounts. WHY????? Do we not trust that God will not provide for us? (side-note- I have all these things too,not bashing anyone who also has these things)

Jesus focused on LOVE not money......have we really focused on loving each other, or do we practice this on Sunday and Wednesday. Do we show others by our fruits that we are Christians or do we show them we are the kind of Christians that keeps them from wanting to come to church? Are you out there preaching the gospel as God commanded? Can you tell someone what you belief if they ask? Are you sure you know what you believe are you just going through the motions to put a check that you attended church this week?

Can you see my heavy heart? I see so many people in my own town who have bad fruit.....we gotta reach out. I am blessed with my job because I can read my Bible at work, I can tell the clients about God, are you sharing God? I urge you to.

It is the Lent season  for some and more and more people are making the sacrifice to God and participating in Lent as I am. Fasting is also big this time of year, and maybe that is why I am heavy hearted for this world and people......I will stop my ramble here, just something to think about. Hope you enjoyed the read and PLEASE leave your comments, I treasure each one of you.
