This wall seems to be the best for our rock (?) hearth and wood burning stove!
We are trying to get as much self-sufficient as possible. We have two gardens, chickens (23 to be exact and 1 rooster), 2 deep freezers and going to be purchasing another one for our beef we will be butchering. One freezer has garden veggies, the other one is our 2 hogs we butchered recently and then the beef is coming in May! We feel that the only time we will need our electric is during the summer! I have to have cool air! LOL Especially after riding my horses in the morning and coming in from a 'hot' summers day!

It looks pink but it is taupe~
This room has needed a 'fresh' coat of paint for some time now. I have ignored it, because it is an extra room. We are putting our wood stove back in our home for next winter. After being without electricity and heat over the winter snow/ice storm, we have decided that it was a necessity. John is coming out to drop an outside line out of our meter box so we can hook our generator up to the house (for outages only). Then we are having a rock hearth installed in our living room for our wood burning stove. I guess we are going back some years, because my grandmother had an ol' wall heater that stayed on very low setting and she heated her home with the fireplace and her gas stove when cooking. In the long run, it will save us money in the winter, cause that wood heater will run you out of the house when it is going! The front room at this time, is being turned into a sitting room. We have to move a couple of chairs in the front room so that we can make room for our stove!!

......This fantasy/dream of a movie is unbelievable for ones who love to watch adventurous, thrilling and love story movies! I have to say I am somewhat envious that author Stephanie Meyers of the Twilight series can fantasize and write such a wonderful love story! I had to purchase the movie (yes, I am one of the 3 million who purchased one the first day of release) for my collection. I hear the second one "New Moon" will be out in November!

Every flower is different, no one flower is the exact as the other!
So many flowers on one small branch!

BB - #34 trying to block a shot
B received All-District honors this year in the 2008-09 basketball season! Even after tearing her ACL, she has a great comeback when she hits her 3 pts shots with 70% and scoring an average of 17 pts a game and average of 8 rebounds, 3 steals and 5 assist, and her free throw percentage is at 75%. Once she was used to her brace she was the ol' BB back in full force! We knew she had received these honors a couple of weeks ago, but we were not able to release the information until after State finals! CONGRATULATIONS BB.........GREAT JOB! We are proud of you and luv you!
