We spent a lot of time this past weekend at the hospital visiting the new baby Kassie and family. She is so pretty! Her big sister, who is two, loves to give her kisses. They went home on Monday and are trying to get into a new routine with the baby. Hopefully, she'll be a good night sleeper!
We're getting closer to installing the above ground pool! We had dirt brought in today and another load will be brought in tomorrow. Then, we'll need the tractor brought back to level it all. Wow! Seems like every project we take on takes F..O..R..E..V..E..R.. to complete! I guess that's all part of being diy homesteaders!
Oh, I harvested the mystery plant today! It looks sort of like a straight neck squash, but I could see faint lines in it. I think it might be a mixture of gourd and cucumber because that's what grew in that area at one time. I cut it up and sauteed it in butter with onion, but it didn't really have much flavor. I'm still baffled as to what it really is!
It's also hard to believe that we are coming upon the end of the month with a holiday! I'm looking forward to this weekend since my brother is coming in from Mobile to interview for a job. We really want him to move back! Pray that he will have favor and that God's will be done in his life! Thank you so much for praying and thank you for reading this blog! Blessings from Bama!

|Beautiful baby Kassie!
|Look at that tiny bow!
|Daddy, big sister, and baby.
|Checking on the bees.
|Not much smoke is coming out of the smoker.
|The bees are so gentle they don't seem to be bothered.
|They have multiplied so quickly!
|Guess who's number 64?
|They are devouring a watermelon rind.
|More sunflowers open everyday.
|Roses, day lilies, and irises.
|Such a beautiful rose!
|We have several of these plants in bloom.
|Me and hubs at Carrabba's.
|Another butterfly bush in bloom.
|Me and another friend's baby boy. I don't know whose arm that is!
|The hubs and baby's daddy put this up last night.
|Mystery plant veggie. Looks like a squash.
|It seemed almost tough.
|Sauteed in butter and onions. It tasted o.k. but not really like squash.
|Fill dirt. Another one will be brought in tomorrow.
