Haven’t written in a long time

My family and I have been very busy, like so many people are.  My kids have rabbits. They had some litters. It was a great experience.  However, there were too many rabbit babies. It cost too much money and time to take care of them. We sold some and then had to surrender the rest to the animal shelter.  It was during the beginning of Easter week , so we hope that all of the rabbits were adopted. Usually that’s a time where those who want rabbits for pets are most interested in buying.

We have three dogs now. One is a puppy. Lots of training to be done.

The drought here in California has been bad, and very noticeable by us farmers.  We heard that at least for this next season we could get a lot of rain.  We’re praying about that and for God’s provision for our needs.

We’re about to start our new homeschool year. No need to do anymore book shopping. We have all of our curriculum. We’re getting excited about starting school.

Raisin harvest is underway, and off to a good start  The weather has been good and sunny.  The weather forecast for the month of September is looking good too.

Praise God. He is good and loves us very much. He loves everyone.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.    Psalm 23: 1 – 3

A few thoughts on Christmas Day evening

I am thankful for my family. We had a very nice day together. The weather was very cool in the afternoon so we spent less than one hour outside. We played with our new toy remote control vehicle and took care of our rabbits.

For dinner we ate leftover turkey because we didn’t need our oven to reheat it.  Our oven needs a new element. Also, I would have done some baking (cookies, special bread, or cake), but not this time.

We enjoyed listening to Christmas music.

I thank God for His love and for being near us.
