(The old fence on our land, Rustic, worn and full of untold stories)
We have a chicken that is getting into the bunny hutch to lay eggs. I get a giggle every time I find one. Sunday, I found three! It must be a good spot and the one chicken has told her friends and they all want to try it out. I get that vision of the Cadbury commercial in my mind where the bunny is clucking like a chicken when I think of the hens in his hutch. I'm getting more and more eggs every week and that is exciting. My dreams are coming true, finally, after feeding and caring for these chickens for so long now. I was starting to think I'd never see an egg!
Sunday was the best day by far from the weekend. Church was lovely and our Sunday school class is just so in tune and amazing, you leave the room feeling so up beat and positive for the week. The service was, as usual, touching and positive. As we move through our 40 days of lent, I feel a strong attraction to following the times of Jesus and what he went through during his life. I love to read the scripture and follow the story of his journey to the cross. Although, a feeling of sadness comes over me considering what he endured, a feeling of peace, love and hope over shadows that feeling with knowing that he died for our sins, and there was a purpose in the large scheme of things. Truly, no better gift could ever have been given to us and I am so thankful for it. After church we went out to eat dinner and ran into to shop for pants for my middle son, who...drum roll please... GOT A JOB! It has been such a difficult process for him to get a job. But, finally after almost a year of consistent applying and trying, he succeeded. Yay, I'm so proud of him! We all came home and started working on my flower beds that I have designed in my mind. We have so many downed trees laying there and it is such a waste not to re-purpose them somehow. I have decided to build all my beds from the trees, stacking two or three high, and securing them with very large screws to hold them together. We have the first row of logs on both sides of the area now and I can see it coming together. It is going to be exactly what I pictured in my mind. The beds will be rustic, beautiful and perfect for years to come. So, today I will continue to shovel dirt and fill the areas with soil so that I can begin planting in the next few weeks. What a wonderful weekend overall!
