"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..........

My Lazy Afternoon.....

Last Saturday a friend and I went to Lark Gardens......
it was the Grand Opening of their little store!
There chef (who, by the way, had a very ENGLISH accent:)...
was tossing things around in the kitchen and
giving us samples in order to taste
the vinegars made at Lark Gardens.
I bought one small bottle to try. He had it on kale with shallots
and garlic (also available in the store).
We tried it the other night and it was GOOD!! You just splash some
vinegar in a couple times during sauteing....
They had different vinegars on plums, potatoes, strawberries.....
They also have little starts in there greenhouses and in the
winter will have fresh greens for sale in the store.
And speaking of greenhouses!!! One of them had citrus
trees!! There was a lemon just about the size of a football!!
We all decided we needed a greenhouse like that attached to our
house that we could just leisurely wander in to, but with glass
ceilings in order to see the sky......maybe your hottub could be in
there or just a spot for tea and reading!!
I also brought home Organic lollipops for those who
stayed home that day. :D

The Store......
