Friday, March 11, 2011

It's quite and peaceful this morning. Bob is still sleeping and as usual I have been up for about an hour. Not much movement in the neighborhood and I stood and looked out our patio door at the barren fields. Soon the soil will be cultivated ready for wheat. I love watching the wheat grow. First a sea of green that just seems to turn to gold. I think that is my favorite crop doesn't interfere with the view of the tree line that hides the levy. The night scenery is beautiful too. You can see the lights from the bridge that spans the Mississippi River.

We will be working the fish fries this evening and along with that we have a quilt raffle for our parish. Those funds will be given to our CCW for bereavement dinners.

Today I feel gratitude for the life God has given me. My blessings are great.

My challenges will be eating in proportion and not grazing on the food that is so conveniently put in my reach.

    Marie - Oh how I've missed you on the daily chat. I know it's not always easy to go there but I still try to drop in with a line daily as much as possible. So many have left there.

    Wanda & I are still there.. and Shirl.. and Nancy Jane. Kathy drops in sometimes. That's about it of the old gang... not old as in age... you know what I mean.

    So nice seeing your blog. I'll look for them from now on. Have really missed you though. I've often wondered about my friend Marie. Take care. ((((((((Hugs)))))))) Friends always, Marla

    I've got most of my little seeds in their starter pots now and am anxiously waiting for them to show signs of sprouting. I'm excited about my garden again this will have more than last year and that hopefully translates into more canning for me. I really enjoyed the opportunity to get back into canning last year. Thanks to you....all your blogs about canning inspired me to get back into doing it.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Pssst.... Guess who... Gee I have missed you! Just happened to see your blog in passing...
    I see you are enjoying that Wheat. I can see it by the way you describe it. Always Love your Blogs.
    Nope I haven't Blogged in a very long time. Not sure why... I think cuz I was getting some negative comments... Was not enjoying it.
    But when I need some Positive I just go visit the Positive Bloggers and get a lift from them.
