A few days of blessings and photos
Our son, Raymond and his female friend, Faris, came up for a visit on Thursday. They are on their way to Alaska for a 1 1/2 year stay.
Friday morning, we got a call saying, We could get hay out of the field for $3.00 a bale, and we could make payments on it. But we would have to get it that day as rain was coming in the next day. Now here is the Blessings: First, Raymond and Faris said them help me load it ( as Tommy was having a really hard time breathing and was hurting, there was no way he could loaded the hay), we loaded a 112 bales. It took us two trips to get it home. Tommy drove the truck around field, and even that was hard on him. Second: We have been paying $7.95 a bale, and we need a 100 bales to make it through this winter. We are still in a drought here, so we were not sure how to get the hay this year, or how to pay for it. The Lord opened His window on us. So thank you, Raymond and Faris for your help, and saving us almost $500 on the hay. Below is some photos of us getting hay and these two city- beach kids helping us and blessing us:
Raymond and myself loading hay.
They both were really happy when I told them we didn’t have to get the big rolls of hay, just the square bales.
Faris and myself
She said,” This is not so bad”.
They both did such a wonderful job. Faris had not been on a farm before. She tried cows milk and butter, and really like it. I sent her some milk in a cooler for their trip. She also said, “Haying was fun.” That’s a city-beach kid for you. I am so thankful our winter hay is on the farm. The Lord poured His blessing out of us. Thank you, Lord. A friend on the blog is blessing us with homemade goat soap and shampoo, and sending yard. Thank you again my friend. May God bless you to over flowing. Well, my haying muscles are calling for another hot shower. Just wanted to Thank Raymond, Faris, and my blog friend and mostly to thank the Lord.
God bless you all,

My new life as a widow, mother, and Nana. This is now about our new journey down the road of new beginnings, our ups and downs, and what we are doing and learning. And hoping to keep as much of our old ways as I can, while learning new ways along this road. We live off a fixed income and make as much as we can ourselves. We find new ways to use old things, or use them in a different way. We try to live as simple as we can, by choice. I’m hoping that this blog will help others along their journeys in life. As our journeys here on earth are changing, some changes we like while others are hard on us,but by God’s grace we will make it through them all.
The simple life, living off God’s land, one day at a time.
(Before becoming a widow)I’m a homesteading, homeschooler, farm mom and wife. I’ve been married 10+ years, kids(his ,mine and ours is 9). We raise and grow 80%+ of what we eat. I enjoy : knitting, cooking from scratch, reading, blogging, canning, quilting, and more. My husband has prostate cancer in his bones. So I’m now learning all about that and new drugs. I love learning new things. I like to find all the ways I can to stretch a dollar, it’s become a mission. I am very creative and try to make do with what I have on hand. And would like to share with others what I know. I by no means know it all. We started living off the farm more then ten years ago. Tommy said I could stay home with the kids. What a blessing. But with only one income and 5 mouths to feed, well I start homesteading, farming, gardening, canning out of have too. Now I do it because it’s just much better food. The Lord has blessed us much over the years. We have only had the Internet for a few months, we have no cable etc. We do have power but we hang clothes out side, use the power very wisely, it’s going up in cost too.
Lately, a lot of my friends have ask me how to do this or that, how to store food, what to store. So I started blogging, they can come here.
Welcome to our life on a farm.
