Summer Projects

Our June month has been busy so far.

We have been trying to get a few outside projects done around here, then a few pauses for parties, get togethers, and rest.

I would love to show some pics of our projects but I will hold off and post them when we’re done.

We have had some rain here the past week and it has been well needed. Our garden is coming along fine. Atleigh is so excited to see our “widdle  madoes” in the garden.

It’s so nice to wake up and hear the birds singing. I love having my coffee and prayer time outside. I’ve got flowers and bushes blooming like crazy and smelling so good. I forgot to take some pics of my two flower beds I worked so hard in a few weeks ago. I planted some caladiums and wild flower seed and they are growing good. I will put some pics in my next post.

Dear hubby is working on his projects too.

We are trying to get everything prepared for our annual 4th of July cookout at our house. We didn’t get to last year because he was in AR working for the summer. So it’s on this year.

We have got to enjoy a few things with my momma. One day we loaded up kids for Grab Your Granny Day and went to a park. We had an extra kid and she took up with my momma pretty good.


Fathers Day came and we spent some time with my daddy.


I got up that morning and threw everything in my Pressure Cooker and lunch was served. PhotoGrid_1561126216586

After that we had a big girls bday party to go to. Yep, our Atleigh turned the big 2. My, my, where does time go. This girl is a character.  She will keep you laughing and has such a sweet heart. She is a lover not a fighter that’s for sure.


We went down to their house for her bday party.


Then Sunday, Fathers Day, we spent it with Dakota and Dear hubby.


We have been enjoying our time with the girls. Poppie especially.


Caroline turned 10 mths old this month. She is growing and learning fast. She started walking here at our house and has not looked back. Her nickname is scrappy because she loves to fight with Poppie.  She will sike you out. She thinks everything is funny and she loves food.


Their Lolly had a photo shoot with them.


We had the chance to go to my 30th high school reunion.  It was nice to see old friends.


I have been having to go to drs appts

This clot in my leg is not getting any better and my RA dr doesn’t like the fact that it is still there. So he sent me to a DVT dr. We did another ultra sound and the clot has not changed any. It has  not moved, shrank or broke up. Nadda.  Nothing. He said blood is still flowing through the vein and it is not completely  blocked. The blood thinners have not done any good on the clot because it has gotten so old and had calcified. He said there is nothing they can do right now unless it becomes life threatening. What? I can’t help but think that they should just be able to go in and remove it. He said the only thing we can do right now is try compression therapy.  I have to wear a compression sock to help force the blood to flow better.

I think it is causing other problems as well since my blood flow is restricted and slow on that side. I have been light headed alot and short of breath and heart palpitations.  It is kind of scaring me so I went to my primary care physician. I kind of broke down in his office because all this together on top of my RA  is driving me insane. I have always been a busy person who could not sit still. I have to be doing something. But the past few years I’ve been forced to just sit and rest sometimes. I am restless and bored. I have so much I need to be doing and want to do just don’t have the energy or motivation to do it. We are just doing process of elimination to see if these are connected or if I have more than one issue going on. I have dr appts scheduled in July.

As of today, dear hubby and I are both sick. I think the heavy rain fall stirred up pollen. We have sore throats, stopped up noses, fever and coughing. I am about to go stir crazy laying up in here. I’ve only moved from the couch to the bed and back. Maybe by this weekend it will pass and we can get back to normal. I have too much to do.

Well, I hope everyone enjoys their day. I’ve got to take some Ibuprofen now. I feel feverish again.

About 4dfarms

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.

    Your lunch looked yummy! My daughter loves her pressure cooker. I’ve only tried hers a couple times, haven’t used mine yet…kinda scared of it! The photo shoot pics are precious ♥ Sure hope the clot gets better.

      Thank you. I found alot of video recipe demonstrations with Eric Theiss. People don’t realise how simple these things are. We got our daughter in law one for Christmas but she says it freaks her out. I think it’s because it’s so big , she is scared of it. Lol


  2. Looks like a wonderful website and family and post!
