Miriam has been using Sarah and Elizabeth to weed the back side of our garden where the apple trees are. Yes, they like each other and when one gets taken out of the pen, the other one snorts and runs up and down the pen like she's crazy!
This is Miriam with Sarah, Isaac's horse. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but our horses are Welsh Ponies. They were originally bred to work and live in mines. They are extremely hardy and can live on very poor quality food. They get our worst hay and thrive on it!
The apple blossoms are so pretty. Isn't it amazing how God makes things so beautiful when they could be very plain? The bees were also out in full force, another of God's neat creation. I guess that means we should have some apples come fall as well!
Priscilla and I went over to the J. barn to see how their house is coming along. This is the entrance to the large girls' room that the girls are so excited to move into! Every house has character, but to transform a barn into a house with it's high arched ceiling is going to be really unique. Mr. J. is a carpenter and so everything will be done just right. They finished all the plumbing and electricty, have put up some sheet rock, and are finishing up the septic system. By accident, while using a tractor to plow up a garden spot, they found the old septic tank from the house that used to be on the property. It didn't take long to figure out a way to dig it up and recycle it! Saved the J. family a lot of money. If you think of it, please pray for this family that the dad and two older sons will find jobs. When they made plans to move everyone was hiring, but times have changed, and there's not exactly a lot to pick from in our little town.
Well, have a great day in the Lord!
