"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Happy October!!

Once it turns October, I feel like Fall is really here.....I love October! Maybe because I was born in October, do you think?? And it begins
looking and smelling more like Fall.......
Cut back my huge
mint plant today.....

And baked a Deep Dish Pear Pie.......maybe warmed later with Vanilla Ice Cream melting over the top!!! And sour dough starter under the cloth.....ahhh....signs of Fall!

Lovely Shade of Green......

My daughter and I layed these 20 rolls of sod yesterday....I LOVE and am so THANKFUL for every bit of green we can ad to our desert landscape! AND it was FREE!!

From Cake to Cookies......

Mmmmm.....Harvest Bars for the guys last night!!
I took a Carrot Cake recipe and poured it into two pans, so instead of cake we had bar cookies. Sometimes there is pineapple in a carrot cake, well this recipe called for mandarin oranges. I had neither. So, I used some apple/pear sauce that I had in the pantry and remember back a few posts?.......I had grated carrots in the freezer!! Made some very good bars.

Great Deals.....

OK, so we were just innocently driving along on our way to see Aunt JoAnn after her hip replacement...fresh loaf of bread in hand for her.....and what should appear but a PRODUCE STAND!!!! with a deal on peaches toooooo good to pass up......
So, guess what I am doing this week?!?
After, the Harvest Bars for the Shepherd's House tonight, laying the sod my son just set aside for me today (He gets it for FREE), having breakfast with a friend tomorrow, and I really needed to clean out the shed before the rain comes next weekend so I can get to my garage sale stuff and have a garage sale!!!
Peaches WILL get done!!!
I am so happy when God provides in such fun ways....we are trying to stock up on certain things that can get us through the winter and foods we just need to have on hand because hubby's jobs are not coming so fluently right now, so I am very grateful and thankful that God happened us upon this produce stand Saturday. :)
