Sunshine on my shoulders.....................

in November, who would have thought. We have had such nice, sunny weather it is hard to believe that it is November here in the Thumb. The sunshine has made it very pleasant this busy week. There are many things I wish I had been able to get done, but don't we all feel like that when wanting to take advantage of good weather. The kids and the husband have kept me busy with their needs, and I was also spending alot of time in prayer supporting a dear friend whose mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly. The busyness has kept me from blogging like I had planned, so I apologize to my readers for that. Hopefully I can start picking back up again. I am off in a minute to help Kara move her chickens, then it's time to finish up the fencing for their super coop. I will be so glad when that is done. We are also pondering putting up fencing and bringing our horses home instead of boarding them. Alot of things to decide in a short amout of time before freezing weather begins and fence posts won't go into the ground. I love where we board them, but if we can put up fences and such that we can reuse at our new farm it would maybe be money better spent in a tough economy. It it sometimes hard to squeeze in time to go see them, so being able to run out and love on them anytime we want sounds very appealing. I just keep praying for the right answer so we can keep our girls. They are lovely horses and I do not want to give them up. I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the weather, if it's good where you are.

The Road to Healthy..............................

I am really, truly hoping our family is on the road to healthy. No one way streets, no detours, I just want to be on that one road and drive until we are at the destination known as back to normal. It has been a very long last week. First the kids were all sick, then they passed that love onto momma and papa. Everyone went to school today and I think hubby may make it off the couch today too. I am always amazed at how much further I can get behind on all the daily chores that need to be done, let alone all the projects and extras that need attention too. Anyone in that same boat with me? It seems overwhelming, all the things to do to return to that destination of normal. I am sitting in my chair looking around and trying to decide where to start first to clean up and put away things. I have a feeling this is one of those days where I will be saying to myself, alot, that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I wonder if I pray enough if maybe a maid will appear at my door.
