Plain and Simple

at the cottage...
Dewberries blooming like crazy, love it!
The wisteria is getting ready to burst into color and fragrance.
Ashley has started babysitting just once or twice a week for a couple of hours. She wants to jump to child development in Home Ec. I think this will be good for her, hands on experience. This morning she learned that some young children need constant amusement. ;)))

The children learned that some people can live without TV. The oldest asked a few times, "Why don't you have TV?" It was rather funny, their grandmother told me that their mom was baffled as well, to our lack of that mode of entertainment. :)

We are sitting on the backporch while Ashley now finishes an English test, Wyatt is eating an apple and sharing some of it with his rescued Ferret. Ashley found a young, starving ferret in the forest Saturday. She is young and in very bad shape it will be slow going for a few days but she is eating, drinking, and sleeping alot. She is very friendly and you can tell the playfulness is there, but right now her energy is reserved for building her weight and strength back up.

I haven't taken a lot of pictures for this week's Plain and Simple with the wedding trip and the hectic weekend.

But, today we are busy with laundry and hanging it on the clothesline,  making laundry soap, blessing our home from the weekend, and enjoying the wonderful weather. Over the weekend we planted strawberries and counted several potatoes that have popped the surface.

Hubby and I had a wonderful trip to Birmingham and enjoyed our time at the temple seeing such a cute couple marry and then Saturday celebrating with them and their families at the reception.

I hope your weekend was wonderful have a blessed day



This is Isis, Wyatt named her after an Eygptian goddess. He is into Roman, Eygptian, and Greeks myths etc.


  1. Oh my dear, I have to constantly explain to others why we are not connected with a dish outside our porch.

    I am glad that your daughter is trying her hand at learning how to be around small children. Many teenagers don't seem to connect to much with small children.


  2. Mike was in Birmingham over the weekend! Crazy small world. His Dad ended up in the Hospital with pneumonia on their way home from serving a mission. Mike flew out to be with them and is now driving them home.
