Becky's Farm Life

The simple life, living off God's land, one day at a time.

This & That 1/29/09

I have not had a lot to say. ( alright now, no laughing)  And I’m not sure what else needs to be posted on stocking foods and getting ready for the hard times ahead. I have been doing a lot of reading on the Internet, and checking on everyone.  This site is still showing a lot of hits on stocking  up and canning potatoes, etc. 

I’m not liking what I hear on the News:  more job loses, more people losing their homes, more companies lay off and closing down, and now the recall on peanut  products. This mess will not be leaving us any time soon.  So I’ll continue to keep  a watch on our money, keep stocking, and keep looking for more ways to save money.  And I’ll post any new finds I find out about. 

Here we  have seen good days and bad days but/and  overly blessed.  But we are still kicking hard.  And we are thankful for grace and mercy for each day. This world is not our home. Tommy  has good and bad days.  And still loves his mp3 player. While he listened to it this morning, he found a loving message from Tommielynn.  I did not even know she put it on there. But it brought a wonderful smile to Tommy’s face. 

Tommielynn has stayed up late with Tommy a few nights, watching and helping him. I was informed by her that I needed my sleep and it was her alone time with her daddy.  She has been a great help to me  in helping with Tommy’s care.  I am so very blessed to have a wonderful family.

With the weather not being the greatest(snow, rain), I admit I’ve been using the dryer for the clothes. In a way it’s been nice using it. (It does save some time, but also uses more power). Well I’ll use it as a treat for me.  And it really   only took the power bill up about $20, not bad for using it 4-5 times a week for about a month.  This last week’s  weather has been really different: one day is shorts, and the next layered clothes. No wonder I can’t get rid of this  head cold.

Well I hope you all have a great day.
