Busting Ice & Hauling Water

Y’all seriously, I don’t know if I’ve blocked it from my memory or what but, I don’t remember hating winter chores this much! Busting ice & hauling water has easily become my most dreaded chore!!! It seems to take FOREVER. The temperatures are staying colder longer for the area I live in. Maybe that’s why I’m struggling to survive the mundane water chores. Usually, it warms up by mid-day in the past. That would help with the troughs melting. There has been zero melting the last couple of weeks. By the time, I make sure all our farm animals has access to water, I’m exhausted.

Other than that, we have a hog hunting dog in our house on “Farmer’s Wife Vet Care”. He fell into an old well/cistern while hunting on New Year’s Day. Poor baby got soaked and was treading water when my husband found him. He’s getting lots of TLC and being spoiled rotten. He’s feeling much better. No signs of pneumonia or anything yet. He’s an older dog and an amazing hunter. He’s probably my husband’s favorite, other than his two brothers being a close race for first.

I hope you are all having a great week, with little to no drama. šŸ˜

Take care.

Happy New Year!

I am sitting on the couch with my man. He’s watching a cop show, and I’m reading blogs. We are together in our pjs. We are sipping hot chocolate and apple cider, while our boys sleep peacefully in their beds.

As this year comes to an end, I’ve been thinking since Church tonight: We are blessed. Extremely blessed by a great big God. A powerful God who holds us all in the palm of His hand. A God who loves us. A God who cares enough to know how many strands of hair that is on our head. In case nobody has ever told you, God loves you. YOU are important to Him.

I don’t like resolutions really. Resolutions are so easily broken. I try to always do my best. I love my boys and husband big. I try to serve God big. I try to do my best at my job. I love my farm animals big. I pray expecting big things in faith. I strive to read my Bible through each year. (I believe this is the fourth year I have.) I believe the most important thing I can do is live for Jesus. To show my boys Jesus. To smile and share Jesus. To reach out to the lost and hurting, and show them God’s love. I saw this picture earlier on Pinterest and loved it. I hope you enjoy it too.

I hope all of you have a very blessed New Year!
