I am a mother of 4 great kids and help meet to one amazing country man. We are learning how to be as self sufficient as possible by getting back to the basics. I strive to surrender each day to my Savior, Jesus.
Country Man and Son working on the winter wood. We are going to sell some and save some for a wood burning stove we hope to install this year. This tree has been slowly dying little by little and dropping limbs on our driveway. We have repaired two cars already and decided that it was time for it to go. We should get quit a bit out of it. My country man loves his new chain saw!
The sun is setting on our day but there is still plenty of work left to split this big boy into pieces that are ready to burn. It will have to wait until tomorrow.
I love this picture of our old barn with the sun setting behind the trees!
Some days I really need to reflect on God's mercy and grace to understand how much He truly loves me. He is so faithful even when I am not. I know that I am flawed and He loves me anyway. I just want to strive to glorify Him in everything that I do because other than that, nothing really matters.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer. (Ps 19.14)
Everyone loves to show off their children and I am no different! Here we have Bretta 21, Brandon 19, Bailey 14, and Bennett 12.
We have 3 1/2 wk old baby bunnies. They are about to outgrow their nesting box. We love to go out every morning to see how much they have grown from the day before. It is amazing how fast this happens. They just learned to drink from the water bottles on the side of the cage. It is so cute to see them all trying to drink at the same time.
This is Mr. Tom. He is a rescued kitty from a friend's barn. We just couldn't turn his adorable face away. He was quite fiesty when we first got him, hence the name "Mr. Tom". I felt everytime he hissed at us that he was demanding respect. Well, he has turned into a sweetheart!
This is Lucy our beloved 11 yr old dachshund. She is the guardian of all things and let me tell you she takes her job very seriously! She is a better mouser than any of the many cats we have had. She is getting older and a little slow on the draw. Her hobbies include: eating, sleeping, and she loves a good coon hunt!
More family members to come.... stay tuned!
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth."
This is the beginning of our Wimberly Family Farm Blog! I am excited and a little hesitant. I have admired other blogs from a distance and wanted one of my own but wasn't sure about the responsibility. But as you can see, I am diving in head first. I hope to use this space to share some of what we are doing.
We love to till our own land, raise bunnies, grow our own everthing possible, and have lots of future plans for this place. We live on 13 acres and have 4 terrific almost grown kids. It only seems like yesterday when the first child came into our lives and now here we are 21 yrs later and our last one is almost 13.
I enjoy homeschooling (two still in the nest), baking, sewing, crocheting, knitting, painting just about anything, gardening (vegetables & flowers) and reading. I want to learn more about self-sufficiency and lots of other things. I hope to be able to share with you some things that I do and learn from you as well. Thanks in advance for any comments that you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
Today was bread baking day so I thought I would share with you a yummy photo of the results! I got this recipe from a friend, thanks for sharing Eleece.
