Sitting here this morning with my coffee, the sun shining in through the picture window and..a chicken looking in at me. She's jumped up on the storm cellar door and is peeking through the spider plant. She must be done with her "job" of pulling out the onion sets that were planted yesterday. I really need to finish the garden fence that I started yesterday. We put in the onion sets and some potatoes, and carrots. Today I want to get the peas in, lettuce, chard, radishes and anything else I have the energy to do. I started mowing the lawn and would like to get more of that done. Today would also be a good day to make dandelion jelly. The dandelions are out in force.
Spring is sure a busy time, but I love being outside. Unfortunately, my house suffers for it. My kitchen is full of items for the rummage sale. It looks like we're moving out. My livingroom is so dusty I can write phone numbers on the computer desk with my finger. My honey needs to roof the new addition before the thunder storms tomorrow. I hope he can get half of it roofed. Then he needs to finish my goat fence. I can't get the wire pulled tight enough. I have quite the list for the poor man. He is always doing for others and I feel bad when I have a list for him, too. The goats are out everyday, but with my garden going in, I really need to get them their own "space".
I also need prayer for resentment. Our two older, public schooled, children are so busy with their public schooled lives that they haven't been home right after school for over a month. I need their help and I know that I've allowed them to do this. It was so much easier than fighting. Now I would like it if they could be more considerate of the needs of others, but the consideration just isn't there. I'm resenting all of the things they want to be involved in and that they don't want to be involved with the farm. The older one says she'll never be a farmer. I laugh. I've learned to never say never. They are "good" girls, but I am troubled because the world and it's approval seem to mean so much to them. A time of prayer and fasting is perhaps in order.
Time to get going. It promises to be a lovely day. Truly God has blessed us.
