Fall is harvest time...

Digging up Sweet Potatoes!

This is the 2nd year we have grown sweet potatoes. They are really quite easy to grow and don't require a lot of care. Late in May I bought 25 sweet potato slips (small plants) and planted them. After mulching, we really just left them alone until this past week. Cordell and Ryan have been a great help in digging them up, and it is nice that they can just take over the task for me now.

We will be eating these soon. Yummy!

Contract on House!

Less than 2 months after putting our House For Sale by Owner sign up, we have a contract to sell it. We used Rollanet & Craigslist to advertise it, which are both free classified website listings. We are just amazed at how God is providing for us, and with His perfect timing. We are closing by November 8th, or possibly sooner if our buyer can get everything done on their end. This is right after soccer and volleyball, but before basketball and deer season. Not to mention perfect weather for moving as well.

The surveyors and termite inspectors are here today. We have started packing up our extra stuff. Walter has already moved a lot of the outside farm equipment to the farm as well.

You might be asking where we are moving to? Well, we are not sure ourselves yet. We have a possiblity we like, called Plan A, but won't know more about it for a couple more weeks yet. So, we are also preparing a Plan B option in case the first doesn't work out. So, you will have to be in suspense for a couple of weeks, just like we are!

We have really enjoyed living here these past 9 years. Great location close to our church and to town, beautiful scenery, and I have especially liked watching the squirrels play in the trees through the kitchen windows. The creek has been a great place for the kids to play, at least before the poison ivy gets bad. I am already missing living here before we have even moved!

But, I believe God has other things planned for us, and His plans are even better than what we can think of. So, I will quit reminiscing, and get busy packing!

I am in the process of designing a new blog template.
It isn't finished yet.
So, please bear with me as I get all the colors and such worked out. =)

~ Proverbs 3:5-6 ~

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Real men can wear pink!

Wearing pink is nothing new for Walter, but now he is wearing pink for most of October! Check out the following link for the story about his department wearing pink for breast cancer awareness month:
