This week's adventure in the backyard...

Hubby's favorite thing to do is "work". He is happiest when he is working, and he loves to do it non-stop. So after he gets home from his "paying" job, he goes straight to his "volunteer" job, the backyard.

At the end of our day, this was my reward:

A happy hubby!!
A sweet baby girl that wanted to join us!! While big sister stayed home, not wanting to brave the ticks. See our "little house on the prairie", on the upper right hand corner of the hill behind her.

Come "hang out" with me in the backyard...

My husband likes it when I "hang out" with him while he works on his projects outside. I tend to not always want to be out there with him. Especially around the oak trees where I happen to know that the ticks sit waiting for me to pass by so they can jump on me.

Yesterday when he asked me to go into the backyard with him, I decided to go with a good attitude and a happy heart. I grabbed my camera just in case I saw something wonderful.

He made a trail for us, and a path that leads to my future garden, he staked the corners to show me the layout of the garden so I could have a visual of where I would be planting my raised beds. I have dreamed of this garden for years, and the time is getting closer. It may take another year or two, since this garden has to be deer, cow, rabbit, cougar and coyote proof. This is going to be the most beautiful secret hiding place, where Joe and I can just runaway to. A place where the girls can see God's beauty unfolding before their very eyes.

Afterwards, he asked me to "hang out" with him while he worked on his never ending project, of building the fence which is going to hold his future cows (little does he know that we have already picked out names for his "beef cows").

At the end of our day, this was my reward~

PS. And just incase you were wondering, I am a tick magnet!! I did manage to have one jump on me, but hubby made sure it did not come inside the house!!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

~Isaiah 55:8-9

Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS...

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

~Philippians 4:4-8

What have I been missing?

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all you heart.

~Jeremiah 29:13
