“Home is the nicest word there is.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder






“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder, Writings to Young Women from Laura Ingalls Wilder - Volume One: On Wisdom and Virtues






I am having a Christmas in July auction on my Facebook this weekend if anyone is interested.

chrstms auction

You can find it here~ CHRISTMAS IN JULY AUCTION .Try to stay cool this weekend. The temperature here will be at 112 and we will have our sons dog Kimber~ a beautiful gray pit-bull.


They are going away for the weekend and were going to leave her in the kennel in the yard, but being so hot we decided to take her. We are not dog people so if you have any advice, please share. (we have a cat lol long haired Maine Coon Cat)


That should work out just great!!! Blessings~Sara
