"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

From the Photo Vault of This, That, and Blurry!

If you have read this blog at all, you may appreciate that my life is a simple life. Simple does not mean that life is easy. Simple means that it is filled with less hustle and bustle of the world, and more of God, family, and home.

This post is a bit of photos from my daily life that have not made it to the blog.  Yes, some are blurry. I know that with cameras today,  many are instant photographers,but~ I am not!  

This is a project I am working on.  I need to build a rustic wooden frame 
to complete it.  For Bill as he may be reading~when I say I need to build,
we both know  what this means :)! I have been scouring the wood
piles and such about the property for the perfect pieces and hope to
complete this soon.

Here on the farm we try and live a life where we are constantly learning new things.
That being said, I picked up this book to learn some old school preservation methods.

Third and his bride from the annual family photo shoot in November.
They weren't posing as I was taking other photos and yet when I quickly saw them
I tried to hurry and snap this photo.  Blurry is the result...but it is still a precious photo.

My road.  Yep.  This is the road the farm is off of.
Since we have moved here~not one county vehicle has ever done
any work on the road.  We moved here in 2007.  Bill hauls a bit 
of gravel every now and then to fill the holes...and that is how one
has a lovely but remote life!

My mountains a few months ago capped in snow.  This is a rare
image as we only have about 1 day a year that the mountains east of
the farm look this way.

We did not have a cold winter.  This wagon load of wood was
one of the last loads of wood brought to the woodpile by the house
as we did not use the woodstove much at all this year.
That is a worry for us this spring and summer as we have far too
many mice, rabbits, and bugs already.
My head gets blurry thinking about how many rattlesnakes are 
here as a result of the crazy mouse population~shudder!

My dates one lovely day~ Bill and Bill2. 
Proud of Bill to the Second~absolutely!

This was one of my volunteer plants of 2013.
I already have several volunteer plants of 2014 and that is pretty neat.
By the way, this is a gourd plant that produced a few items that

This is an old photo of the mesquite tree Bill has been braiding.
We hope that it grows to be about 6 feet this year.

This weekend is Purim for those that celebrate.  
For those with a Bible and wish to know why Purim is celebrated
take a few minutes and read the Book of Esther.
