Well Hey there Sweetie. Good to have You back visiting with Us again here on Our Front Porch. How have You been? Hope the Family is doing great. So glad You got a chance to stop by today. I’ll put some coffee on and I got some real good blueberry bread I made this morning to go with it. We can eat and visit… two of My favorite things to do! 🙂
How was Your weekend? Ours sure went by quick! It feels like it was gone in the blink of an eye. We had a few visitors at the Ranch, Neighbors and Church Family mostly. I baked a couple of My French Coconut Pies for My dear Friend Elaine. The Ranch Family ate some real good Hot Dogs and homemade Chili. Oh yes, and We started the underpinning on the Ranch House and the fence in the Courtyard. We did make a quick trip to town for supplies too.
This week We are going to get back to scraping and painting the Ranch House if the rain stays away. I think Jake and Grace are going to start painting the coffin for Halloween. We have to get the Halloween decorations from the loft in the Barn too. The Kids are so looking forward to decorating this year. We got to finish up the shelves in the Greenhouse too to make ready for the Plants that are going to spend the winter there. I think Jake has a few winter bulbs he is wanting to plant for Holiday Gifts. Our Fall Cleaning is just around the corner, (Our version of spring cleaning this time of year). That’s always a fun chore.
We also got to figure out how the chickens keep escaping from the chicken coop at night. If They can get out, then something can get in and We surely don’t want to lose any of Our sweet Hens to the foxes or coyotes around here. All but one Hen, We hatched Ourselves. That makes Them extra special to Us.
We have a few projects for Christmas that will take awhile to finish so We are going to start them this week too. I have two Christmas quilts I want to make. One of those tops is already finished. Grace is going to start learning to hand embroider. She has a couple of Christmas presents she is wanting to make and so do I . “Presents from the heart”….. that’s what My Momma use to tell me when I would make Her things. <3 <3
We have a couple of Front Porch Friends and some Family Members that are having some health issues and are in need of Our Prayers, We would also like to ask for Prayers of Peace and Comfort for Our Communities filled with strife. Prayer costs nothing but a few moments of Our time and it’s something We All can give. It’s truly the greatest Gift and one of the most powerful things that We can do for Each Other. We appreciate all of Your Prayers.
We sure have enjoyed Your visit with Us today on Our Front Porch. When You get the chance, come back and visit again real soon. Stay safe and hope You have a great week. Be sure and tell the Family We said “Hey”.
~Love from the Ranch~
