No. This is not a spam blog post! I just tried to make what could be a boring title… interesting :)
Spanish, German, Dutch and Swahili.
In English it’s known as routine, typical, ordinary everyday life.
Hang in there, this post really has no order to it, it’s just happenings from
April and May. Enjoy!
These are newly hatched baby birds from a robin family who made a little nest in one of our peach trees!
Our garden in early May…
…and late May
We just got our first batch of green beans picked and canned!
For those of you who don’t know, we’ve had SO much rain this past month!
We’ve hardly had any sunshine for more than a couple hours, that’s why the okra is so severely stunted! It thrives in hot weather.
We decided… we know God won’t flood the earth again, but he might try Oklahoma and Texas!
No, we didn’t fill the rain gauge up with the water hose, this is from just a couple days of rain!!
Great fun comes with our little pond in the back yard!
Our flower beds have looked beautiful this year thanks to Mom’s wonderful touch!
With the month of May came rain, but also with rain came severe storms that brought tornadoes with them. We only had to go to the cellar once, but other parts of Oklahoma didn’t fair so well!
This is Heidi in January… and Heidi this May. She has changed a lot and is so full of energy, but she is very sweet too! Carinna has been doing lots of training with her.
The nursing home that Abbie works at celebrated National Nursing Home Week by having a different theme each day like “hillbilly day”, the ‘70’s’ (you should have seen Abbie’s hippie style!!) and Hawaiian day! This is the only picture she approved for the blog. :)
The love birds.
What else can I say. They’re in love! And diligently working on wedding plans.
Carinna and I took Grandpa out fishing and we caught a fish nearly every time we cast out (big or small) and came home with 9 keepers! That’s fun fishing.
If you want to see some beautiful Oklahoma country and have a blast doing it, come on down! We’ve been having so much fun taking Granddad’s Model T out on gorgeous Sunday evenings and discovering “new” territory and routes to take. The fun has included… trying to drive it only on paved roads (hard to do around here), taking a 40 mi. drive round trip, Dad treating us to ice-cream, taking our little neighbor buddies on a ride and realizing how absolutely gorgeous Oklahoma is! Just sayin’.
Did I say we’ve had LOTS of rain?!
No, we didn’t take the Model T over that!! (although we probably could have made it). :)
It’s not often Dad sits in the back seat, he’s either driving or riding shotgun, but somehow this past trip when Carinna was driving, that’s where he landed!
He got the full experience of the wind in the back seat!
Our bees are doing well. We have 20 hives… at the moment, I say that because one hive just swarmed and we have a couple of hives that are kind of struggling.
But it looks like the honey flow will be really good this year!
He is so fun! This little guy bring so much joy to our lives! He’s not walking yet but he’s getting braver! He’ll “give hugs”, blow kisses, sign “please” “more” and “thank you”, he’ll say “bah” and wave when ever someone leaves, and he’s got this adorable growl that comes from way deep in his throat! His birthday is coming up so we’ll post more about him later!
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and
spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.”
