Catch up....

It has been a while since I have posted a entry. I have thought several times that I would write and I have had a hard heart during this time and I have been working it out. It is funny when you think things are going good how you can allow something to creep in and destroy your day or your week. I know that I am not alone. I am on day 256 of reading my bible and finding my way with God. I am learning things that I never knew and finding happiness like I never fulling grasped. Don't get me wrong it is not easy. I have to work on my tongue almost daily and every time I let it slip I pray and ask God for forgiveness. I am learning Grace!!! Most days something happens that shows me that God is in control.

Over all things have been going pretty good. We have been back from the beach for almost two weeks know and missing it everyday. We have gotten chickens back, and it is so hot. I went to Carter's Farm and got 4 bags of corn with 5 dozen ears per bag. I canned 2 bags and we ate a bag. I ended up giving one bag to the Farmer's Uncle. I got 40 pints or more canned. My family loves canned corn.

2 bags

One bag shucked

One bag spread out.

Here is a dark picture of a few of the jars of corn I canned .

Our garden has started producing. We are going to have some green beans, and squash from the garden for supper today. I love fresh garden food. We have been going to Parson's produce stand in Candor and getting a few peaches, cantaloupe that is so sweet and seedless watermelons

We went to Deaton Thresher's Reunion on July 3rd and walked around. I only took this picture of the old church. 

I am working on a new photo adventure of taking pictures of old white churches. I have taken several and I am going to put them all together in a photo book. We went to an old cemetery to get a picture of an old church but there was a gate across the road to get to the church. I hope to get permission to get a picture of it later, but I did take some of the cemetery. Most of the graves where just a slate rock stuck up some of the were more modern but over all it was old. 

I got a picture of a hawk beside of the road on a tree that the storm had knocked down. 

I  also captured this doe in the field at the end of the chicken house.

Well thanks for stopping by. I need to get supper started. Hope you have a blessed day!


  1. Vicki that corn looks delicious! I could eat a couple of ears right now. Seems like it would be a lot of work to can corn. I would love to know how to can corn. Your pictures are really good. Love you!

    1. Thank you Henny. It is not hard to can corn and I love the taste so much better than frozen corn.


Thank you for any comments! I love knowing who is reading my blog.
