Favorite Marine

Blaine Barby, far left.

This is an article about my friends platoon. Don't tell him,  but I think it's precious. He would rather hear any other adjective than precious. 
Dangerous, manly, courageous... those still work too, Blaine! 
His platoon blows up car bombs and such before they can detonate and hurt civilians. 
He also works one getting to know the people of the area. 

So cool. So proud of him! He is a good leader. Keep him in your prayers!
We love you Blaine!

rain and strawberries

we needed rain. it was dry. in early spring we needed rain. then it didn't stop raining for almost a month. oklahoma is crazy. and i love it.  i love when small town churches pray for rain for their fields. 

a gentle reminder to rely on GOD. everything good and perfect comes from HIM. 

if you would like to pick your own strawberries, come on out! what a fun date.... you could even picnic under our trees. i would share them with you. how romantic. bring a quilt and something to drink. watch the sunset. i could plan an awesome date! or, pick a pint of strawberries for a fun girls afternoon. just do it. summer could be over before you stop to savor it... and that would be sad. enjoy the small things with the ones you love. TGfarms can help you :D

*tgfarms website is not updated often... sorry for that, but i have nothing to do with it. if you want to do a little research you can, but i most likely am your source for up to date activities and produce/animals etc.  my family isn't too computer savvy. feel free to email me!

springtime fun & free range EGGS

the little lazy-blogger-prairie girl
can't really tell you why i haven't blogged since before finals... in fact i started writing this post with an apology. i quickly remembered my aversion to "forced" relationships, chores, obligations, etc. and hit delete. i am promising myself that this will be a fun, stress free place for me to document memories and thoughts... and that no one really reads this besides my MOH (maid of honor & bestie since 3rd grade, darcie challis).

there, that's out. here are some pics of springtime fun.

these chickens lay eggs in multiple colors.... very cool. everyday they are let out to roam (free range) and they get lots of yummy nutrients and diverse cuisine to flavor their eggs and make them rich in color & nutrients.  i'm such a fan. it's cool to eat green eggs. brown ones too! 

please please shop local and support our farmers. if you are interested in some free range eggs we have a ton every day! AND you pick them up on our farm, using the honor system. can you believe it? believe it. everyone should buy their eggs less than 50 feet from where they're laid :D

shop local. just do it, or you'll make me really sad. and mad. i can go on. but i won't. maybe i will. no, i won't, because my sister is coming over and we are going to play. and i'm going to finish knitting my hat. i sound lonely? i'm talking to myself through my blog? at least it's not out loud. typing to yourself isn't as bad as talking to yourself is it? sorry. oh wait.... no apologies.
