Been wondering what's going on? (plus a prayer request!)

Ok, maybe I flatter myself by thinking that my readers even wonder if anything is up.  However, I thought that perhaps they might have noticed that I didn't post a recipe for two Fridays in a row, and that last week's posts were rather disoriented.

I'm here to tell you that I have been rather busy.  Ok, that is a lame excuse, I suppose...  When I decided to do this whole shebang, I forgot that it would land right in the middle of cattle season! Whoops!  So, my family and I have been a bit busy working cows, doing regular chores, and trying to do a decent amount of school work in our spare time.  Yeah.

Just so you know, I won't be doing any of the "regular" posts this week.  So, in other words- no giveaways, recipes, etc.  I might do some of the interviews, but I'm still getting that all worked out.  My sister and I realized that it would be a whole lot more fun if we had prizes for the winners of the photography contest.  So, I've been trying to organize what I have on the list so far (of items to giveaway) and deciding which items to do as giveaways and which items to do as prizes.  Doesn't help any when you come up a few short!  Oh well, it will work out eventually, I guess!  Sorry, I'm rambling.....

What you might see this week-maybe-would be a couple of posts that I've had laid on my heart to write up.  If you don't see anything this week, then just come back next week as I get back into the swing of things for the LAST WEEK in our Photography contest.  Remember that you've only got 16 more days-SIXTEEN- to get your entries in and spread the word!  Thank you to those who have entered so far.  It looks like it is going to be a pretty tough choice to pick winners! :-)

Alright, I guess I don't have a whole lot more to say.  Off to 'hold down the fort' (it can literally become one with two brothers playing soldiers... ha, at least I get to be the General!). 

Oh, please be praying for a dear friend of ours, Mrs. H.  She just recently had her third little boy by C-section due to the fact that the baby just didn't want to come out.  However, while the doctors were trying to get her baby out, they ended up cutting through her bladder (which had been flattened during pregnancy), pulled a baby through it, then had to do a 3 1/2 hour surgery on the bladder.  So, needless to say, she's had quite the experience.  She has two other little boys (aged 6 and 3). Both have missed their Momma.  The youngest LOVES to snuggle, so he doesn't quite understand why Mommy can't hold him right now.  Oh, and not to mention that while all of this is going on, she still has to take care of a little newborn.  So, please keep them in your prayers. Thanks!

Ok, now I really will "Officially" sign off. ;-)

In Christ's Service,

I would be willing to make a background as a prize for you but I can't do anything more at the moment. I'm very busy getting the farm ready for the winter.

Hope this helps!
