Of Piled Dishes, Blueberries, and Hard Work

Well hello there! I pray that you are having a wonderfully blessed day in our LORD! The sun is shining so gloriously bright today. There are some clouds dotting the sky, but they are the big white fluffy ones that you could sit and watch for hours, and imagine them to be all sorts of shapes. Oh, and the temps today are already up into the mid 80's. A perfect start to the month of June. :D
 
So, how have ya'll been of late? It has been what I call "crazy busy" here of late. I think today might me the first day in almost a month I do not have to go anywhere. Unless of course my darling hubby gets home before dark, and he's itching to work on our newly purchased land. Which has been the case more times than I can count since purchasing it. :)
 
 
So far we have where our house will go marked, the driveway mostly mapped out, and a field partly plowed.



 
I love working our land, but sometimes it can be very draining work. It's one way the LORD is teaching me patience, and not to complain... ;)
We have even been able to camp out one evening. :)

Campside breakfast...
And oh yes! We discovered we have several blueberry bushes on the property! We don't think anyone planted them, as the property is completely undeveloped. So most likely a bird helped out with that. :)
 
 
 
Our property has not been the only "adventure" embarked upon of late. I am now on day 22 of a Whole30! I hope to share more of this adventure soon. To make it brief, the past 22 days have been grainless, sugarless, dairyless, chocolateless, and peanut butterless. All in an effort to reset my thought and mind set regarding nutrition.
 
A lunch salad, with grilled venison, tomatoes, and fresh basil from my garden. Oh, and a side of my special blend of iced red rasberry, and nettle tea
 
With those said adventures, my K-3 teaching job finishing up for summer, 2 graduation celbrations, attending a wedding, directing a wedding, grocery shopping, exercise , and everthing in between, I pray that if you want to drop by my house you give me a wee bit of warning. :)
 
From constant cooking on the Whole30, and not being home everyday, housework has become increasingly difficult to keep caught up on. Which has drove me CRAZY on more than one occasion...
 
Piled dishes...
 
And the never ending pile of laundry...
 
This is real life folks.

 
So, with all that being said, I think I'm going to get off of here, and try to spend this day organizing my little castle. :)
 
After I share these two pics. :D
 
The girls enjoying outside the coop time
 
 
And this cute couple that had to have matching outfits while attending a cousins wedding. :)

What have you been up to of late?

Have a wonderfully blessed day! Thanks for stopping by!
