1. Being a mom is much harder than I thought it would be.
2. Sol is much more incredible than I could have dreamed.
3. Having some space to stretch out (like a slightly bigger house) can take a huge burden off your shoulders.
4. Having someone to stretch out with (Dave) can take a huge burden off your shoulders.
6. This little turkey is the apple of my eye. He loves his 'Mama' and 'Dagee' (daddy) so much.
7. Our future may be uncertain, but who's isn't really.
8. Heavenly Father will watch over and take care of our little family. We have been blessed more than we could have asked in our life together and I know if we put our faith him Him the blessings won't stop.

- Ragtime music to his cattle
- as he swings
- Back and forward in his saddle
- On a horse - a pretty good horse -
- With a syncopated gait, and
- There is such a funny meter
- To the roar of his repeater.
- How they run
- When they hear this fellow's gun
- For those Western folks all know
"He's a high falootin',
- rootin', tootin'
- Son of a gun from old Wyoming.
- He's some cowboy,
- Talk about your cowboy,
- Ragtime Cowboy Joe!
We are in Wyoming!

I'm learning a new skill to add to my homemaking quiver that I'm quite proud of. Mainly because this always seemed like something that was not really me, not something I would spend my time doing. See, this is my sister:
Well she could be. My sister, Melissa, has a natural ability to do anything homey related, cook, sew, grow, craft, etc. She's really much more talented than me. This is my sister:
(on the right)
She is teaching me the ways of provident living and surprisingly I'm loving it! She's taught me how to can! It feels so good to get so much food for so cheap and then preserve to last the year. We've made tomato soup, spaghetti sauce, stewed tomatoes, jam, and zucchini relish. She's shown me how to do some other cool thinks with garden foods. She did a bunch of peaches for me too just out of the kindness of her heart. This weekend we're making applesauce. Wish us luck!
Maybe someday I too can be a Martha... yeah, probably not. But I'm digging the canning!
