{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ November 10, 2013

Linking up with Leila again this week for {pretty, happy, funny, real} . . .


I forgot to show you this.  I put this together last spring using Cottage Thoughts free printables. I just printed it, trimmed it, and cemented it to scrapbook paper I already had. I already had the frames too, and I painted them with leftover black paint.  This favorite verse from a favorite hymn is a daily reminder to live in God's grace.

I used scrapbook paper because the printables are not a standard size and
needed mats to fit my frames, but I didn't want to spend money on mats.
These are hanging in our windowless hallway.  It's so hard to take a decent picture of them!  (Obviously, I failed.)  The walls are really not bright yellow.

For your edification, here is Fernando Ortega singing "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing."


Dave did some work with the compost pile not long ago.  It's hard to believe that anything is ever really happening in a compost pile, but when he dug below recent layers there was all this lovely dirt, full of worms, which he has been working into some of our garden beds.


I dug sweet potatoes last week.  Goodness, do they ever taste good!  Some of them are puny and scrawny, but there have been some whoppers too, like this one:

The quarter is for scale.
This is the record-holder for the year. Someone said it looked like a chubby critter with an eye and a nose!
