mud and other things...

Recently, I was thinking I would really like to get a potting bench for my husband. He has been using his workbench in the garage. Which is fine, I just thought it would be nice and more practical for him.

The very next morning I found this bench at a tag sale on a farm. It was outside in a part of their yard where cows frequented. I asked the owner if it was for sale. She hadn't even realized it was out there. It was in bad shape and I had to tiptoe around some cow manure to get it. Hubby powerwashed it. It cleaned up nice and was only $5.

The whole experience was rather funny and I had a good chuckle.

This one spends a lot of time outside with Daddy when I am doing lessons with our other daughter. This is usually how she comes in.
This one is always getting dirty...

We went for a nature walk the other afternoon. I wanted to gather up some rosehips in preparation for Christmas decorating and crafting. The bushes that are usually filled, had disappeared. We don't know what happened to them. =(

On our way back we stumbled across this gal.

She let us get very close...

Our dd7 was overjoyed!

She said Jesus gave her a gift and she will never forget it.

My heart sings when I hear that kind of praise.

Have a great day!

Lindsay misses that sweet girl of yours! She has been sad that we've had so much rain and that the lessons have to be cancelled.

Great find in that potting bench!
