Friday Evening

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m so thankful it’s Friday afternoon! I left work, got drinks at Sonic, filled my rig up with gasoline, and now waiting on my son to finish basketball practice. Then, I plan on going home, getting into comfy clothes, doing a few chores, and chilling. I will cook supper, do a load of laundry, and then catch up on my shows. After a long work week in the SpEd Department, I plan on calmly relaxing in my tiny home. I’m picturing something cozy to drink, my electric throw, the couch and remote. I’m hoping my husband doesn’t try to steal the remote and take over my laziness. 😅

Are Y’all Hanging in There?

Hey, everyone! I hope you are all healthy and doing well. We’ve been enjoying a relaxed semi-hermit life since March. I’ve just been hanging out at home gardening and enjoying farm life with my boys. Enjoying the peacefulness, and avoiding as much of the depressing and even disturbing things going on in the world right now. Summer is winding down way too fast for my liking. Before we know it, it’ll be back to school. (Bah Humbug! Lol.) I really dread the new rules of social distancing and masks. I’m sure it’ll make us school employee’s jobs a bit more stressful, and I feel bad for the students as well. Can we just fast forward past covid, Lord?

Stay safe out there! ~A

Tiny Home Cooking

Sourdough Pancakes
My youngest helping with potatoes & broccoli one evening. (Like his Quarantine hair? Lol)
Homemade banana bread with pecans
Roast, deviled eggs, & biscuits.
Sausage & veggies, & an egg.
Hamburger steak, loaded potatoes, & deviled eggs
Steak, baked potato, & green beans
Grilled Steaks & zucchini

I hope you have enjoyed all my food pictures. The beef is from our farm, & the eggs are from my hens. Those of you who live in a tiny home or a camper will understand how magical these meals are. 🤣😂 Full meals are interesting at times living in itty bitty spaces. I love cooking meals & treats for my family, & enjoy the challenge though. I hope you are all staying healthy during quarantine time. Take care.

We are the Church

Even though things are crazy in the world right now, the Church must continue on. Don’t quit serving the Lord just because your Church may not be in session as usual. WE are the church. We must carry on. Whether it be through online services, quiet time with the Word, or parking lot services. Share hope and keep your joy for those struggling. Don’t give up. Hang in there, folks.

Weekend Shenanigans

We had a great weekend! My youngest finally got to use his little survival kit from Christmas to build a small fire. He and I had s’mores together Saturday night. Today, after our online Church service (Hosanna! Happy Palm Sunday!!!) and brunch, we worked on two garden spots for me. Hubby also continued working on a shed to park our 4wheelers and BBQ grill under. It was a busy but blessed weekend. I still have a lot more garden work to complete, but it’s coming along well.

Putting the roof on the little shed.

I hope all of you have a very blessed week! May God keep you all safe, and His hand be with all you Essentials out there working! ❤️🙏🏼

Quarantine Life

Is it crazy that I’m loving quarantine life?! Of course, I don’t love the sickness or the unknown. I’m an introvert though, so I’m absolutely loving being home. I love having my boys nearby and hanging around our farm. I love planting veggies and lavender. I’m enjoying the serenity of farm life and having time to breathe without chaos of a busy schedule. You’d think since we are living tiny right now, I’d be pulling my hair out. lol. It’s actually nice to have less to clean and worry about though.

B and our dog, Jingle Bells

There are so many people complaining about being bored and missing friends. This is what I was born to do, people! I was made to hide from crowds and chaos. I desire to be home in my comfort zone. I’m at peace here. I’m happy here. I am counting my blessings and actually enjoying life at home. It’s my thing. I do miss worshiping with my church family, but otherwise let’s do this home thing. ☺️❤️

Quarantined Worship

Happy Sunday! Today like many others, our Church was closed, and only had online services. Our Pastor and his family recorded live for our congregation, since we couldn’t gather with them. We watched our church service via YouTube. I gathered up my guys and cooked breakfast, and we “had church” this morning.

Waiting on service to start.

I hope you all had a blessed day. Stay healthy! God bless. ~A

How’s Quarantine Life?

How are you holding up, Friends? I hope all of you are safe, healthy, and enjoying some family time. God bless those still working, especially those in the medical field and those delivering supplies! I hope your children are adjusting as well to being home as my farm boys are.

Working on his AMI packet
I seem to be handling the stay at home life ok.

We are enjoying a laid back life around here. We’ve cleaned, filled our pantry (no hoarding in our tiny house!), worked around the farm, cooked, & chilled. Overall, it’s been a great week of downtime.

Please, stay healthy by washing your hands and staying home as much as possible. God bless you all.
