Can it be that hard...yes it can

Ok, this week I decided that I want a luscious green yard and that I am going to follow my friend Lisa's tips. I went and bought the Scott's fertilizer for fall. I poured it into the Scott's spreader. I read the directions 3 times. I felt confident at this point. My spreader has a flower guard on it . Well, the stuff was flying out everywhere and the guard was always on the wrong side. I just know my yard will be jacked up and my flowers and bushes will be dead. Good thing they are going to die soon anyway. The grass will probably be real green in spots and dead in others. I tried to follow the tracks of where I had been. I turn 40 in December and my eyes are not what they used to be. I guess I will wait and see. I really needed Tootsie to help me with some straight lines. Tootsie's yard always looks like a golf course and I want mine to look that way too.
I have hired professionals before but they never did it to my satisfaction. I actually caught them spraying the front and not the back...little stinkers. I rely wanted to show my husband that I could do it. I guess time will tell.

The Smile Award from Susan Moonlight and Magnolias

I am so ashamed.... A while back, Susan from Moonlight and Magnolia's http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ gave me this wonderful award. I am s.o.o.o.o behind in my blogging that I failed to get it posted properly. The award means so much to me. I really admire Susan. She has amazing talent and is a wonderful blogging friend. I feel very honored that she chose me for this award. If you have not seen Susan's blog please check it out. She is brilliant!
I would like all my blogging friends to pick up this award, because you all make me smile!

Haven Of Rest

I just returned from a relaxing 3 days at The Haven of Rest( you can click on the pic on my sidebar). It is located in the boon docks near Crofton, KY. The property has been my favorite place since I was a young child. The land has been in my family for many years and is now owned by my sweet Aunt Gail.
When my aunt and her family first moved to the "country" the only thing that stood was a old log cabin and a few old barns. They did not have running water or electricity. This way of life was a choice for them. They could have lived anyplace that they wanted. They had a real passion for the land. They worked night and day and built a nice home, all by themselves. They now have electricity, water and phones. I believe it took 7 years or so.
After my cousin Renita grew up she built Haven of Rest. It is nestled in the woods. She no longer lives in the cabin. She is now renting it out so others may enjoy it.
My Aunt has prayed for many years that the property could be used for the Lord. The cabin is used many times by ladies retreats and missionaries. I enjoy the peace that I feel there. It is definitely a place that has been blessed by God.
I feel like a new person this week. It was much needed time away from Main Street USA.

The greatest gift of all....







My brother and I have a $30.00 limit for exchanging gifts at Christmas. You can imagine my surprise when I arrived at my parents and there was a big tarp hanging. They made me wait until last before I could look behind the tarp. I was so surprised! My brother had hand-crafted/designed this beautiful bed for me. It took him a couple months to build. He sanded every piece of Cedar making it smooth and then torched all of it for a weathered look. I got him a sweat suit.... Gifts from the heart are the best. I will always treasure the bed and it is sure to be a family heirloom.
