We were blessed with rain!

Tuesday we were blessed with the rain we needed so badly!  The garden was very happy to get a good drink from nature instead of a water hose.  Hopefully our cucumbers will start producing again, they are covered in blooms and the lima beans may have a chance too.

We also got the good news that all of our six grandchildren will be with us Saturday for our BBQ.  I am anxious to have them all here together - reminds me of times at me grandma's house when all the cousins were together we had such good times.  Family is so important!

Despite the dry weather, we put up dill pickles yesterday!  We also shelled two quarts of purple hull peas for the freezer.  We are watering the cucumbers and tomatoes and praying it will rain soon to help with the other veggies we have planted.  Vegetables just seem to like rain better then being watered with a garden hose! It is a very hot 98.9  degrees in our part of Arkansas today, so we are just enjoying our Sunday afternoon inside until we go back to church this evening.  God blesses us everyday even though we fuss about the heat sometimes.  The rain will come just when he thinks we need it the most.

Baby Joy

Yesterday my son and his wife became parents of a little boy!  He is our first grandson, Ethan Douglas weighed in at 6lb. 12oz., 19 and 1/2 inches long and a head full of red hair, just like his sister!  God is so good to us, it was a very easy delivery, mom and baby both doing well.
