Well, there has been much but little to go on around here. We are just living life and to some that is just boring. Nothing outstanding has happened, just enjoying life with family and friends and my precious children.

I am doing well, very well actually! We had quite a scare a few weeks back thinking that I might have cancer, thankfully it was one really BAD infection that had taken a toll on my body and white blood cell count. I am much better and looking forward to the harvesting season!

The bys are still fighting allergies and it is bad enough they are using prescription meds and eyedrops. They haven't had any nosebleeds in a few weeks now and we are so thankful for that. AT one point they had 18 between them in a 36 hour period. The boys are growing and thriving so well! the peds office was so excited to see us for their well visit in march. The longest they have ever gone without seeing the doctor was 4 months and that was the four months prior to their well visit! John is now 35 pounds and 41 1/2 inches tall. Mason is 40 pounds and 41 inches tall! We are so blessed by them, everyday! They started back to "school" today at the center where they go while I work.

Hubby is doing well except for the allergies too. He is working 6 days a week. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday he works from 8-8, Wednesday 4am-8pm and Saturday 12pm-6pm. To bad he is not paid by the hour! ;)

The garden is going all just fine. We planted over 6,000 plants this time. There is 6 varieties of tomatoes, okra, cantaloupes, various types of watermelons, eggplant, various tupes of peppers, cabbage, different types of cukes, cauliflower, broccoil, zuchinni, yellow squash and other things I know I have forgotten. The peaches and all tree crops look very well for the minute as well!
I picked the first yellow squash Saturday before last and the first cukes this morning.

Two years ago we lost my mother-in-law to cancer at the age of 64. My father-in-law is 82 this year and now we have loearned that he also has cancer. We are waiting to see the oncologist the 27th of this month. We not know any details, not even where it is located. They found it in routine blood work. Please be in prayer for my husband and his Dad.

I hoep you all are haivng a great Spring and are looking forward to the Summer!

It's wonderful when things are nice and quiet, isn't it? I have decided that I don't want an exciting life. Exciting usually ends up being bad, like sickness, accidents, well, you know.

I will pray for your husband and your FIL.

Enjoy the quiet while you can! I know that you are about to rev up to being super, SUPER busy!

You're picking?!? We had frost last weekend, and I'm hoping the rain stops for a day or so so that I can PLANT! I'm jealous... ;)

Prayers for your family, dear...glad you are well!

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your garden pictures. Right now I have to live vicariously through other gardeners/farmers, because we are having too much rain to plant just yet.

Allergies are miserable, aren't they. I would rather have a cold that I could get over with in a few weeks. I hope you all are able to get some relief soon.

I agree with Nikki. Simple and happy is better than exciting and crazy. Though I suppose they all have their place in life. I'm glad to hear life is being calm for you right now. And praise the Lord that the cancer passed you by. Take care.
