You can make plans in life. And then plans change. I had planned on blogging all this week on canning but other things have come up:
1. We got our two pigs.
2. Wyatt's appointment at the Orthopedic surgeon (that's 1.5hrs away) got changed to Tuesday (yesterday) and the surgeon is pretty certain that he's going to need surgery to repair his meniscus.
3. We have family in town until tomorrow morning and then more coming on Sunday.
4. Mason was sick for 3 days with a fever.
And the list goes on.....
The family though that is coming this Sunday are my parents! They'll be here for a week and guess what my plans are? Canning all week long! I am really excited about it. So I'll be blogging about it next week sharing all the different things I can each day. For now though I'll share a couple great pictures I've taken recently.

Layton wanted to share his drawing. He said it's a boy and his shark. :)

Mason is up and running. Well, not really running but crawling and scaling everything else! And today he is finally feeling better!

Drying parsley.....with hangers, in the laundry room. With lack of room in our home, one has to get creative!

Here are the piggies, Pork Chop and Bacon. We didn't really name them that; actually they don't have names. It's probably best not to name animals you're going to eat.

Great pics! Every boy should have a shark!LOL! I'm glad Mason is feeling better. That is such a worry when they have a fever. I love the pigs, and their names. I know you shouldn't name them but it just sorta happens anyway. Our chickens were names Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Were being the key word. The hawks got them. I love the shot of your laundry room. The rolling pins that your aprons are hanging on are adorable. I love it. I like the parsley too :)

Great pics! Now how hard did you have to fight to not name either of the piggies "Wilbur"? lol

I'm glad Mason is better...praying for a quick recovery for Wyatt too!

Ya gotta love "life"!

Good Morning Heather :)

"Blessed are the flexible" is what our pastor used to say :) So true! We never know what God has in store for us and who we are to minister to.

I'm glad that Mason is feeling better, poor little guy. Praying for Wyatt too!I LOVE Layton's boy and shark picture, very good! Keep it up Layton!

I had to smile because I dry my herbs in the laundry room on hangers too, then I secure raffia across one of our windows and hang herb bundles from paperclips shaped like the letter 's' :)

Have a blessed day Heather and a wonderful weekend :)

A good post, it's always best to be flexible because the only constant in life is change and that's, generally, on a daily basis -smile.
The yeast arrived and I thank you for it and the towels, cloth. Whenever I use any, you'll be tucked into prayer.

Glad your little man is feeling better. He is looking so big standing there! Cute.
