A wee posting..


Hello dear hearts.. 
Just wanted to say hello and let you know that I have responded to each blog comment last post... 
That is now on my agenda to do so but you know me and how consistent I am not.. smile.. 

Found the pics on the web and as I am 
  a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan I thought I would share them with you this afternoon.. 

I have just scrubbed my kitchen floor and thought I would do this and as I am using my new desktop computer I only had a few pics downloaded and chose these.. 

Hope you lovelies are having a great week.. 

We are preparing for a Valentine Supper here for the Keepers and friends on Saturday nite so this old house is getting a few corners cleaned and cobwebs torn down.. grin.. 

We have Bible Study tonight and Pastor is teaching on the Book of James.
 Excellent.. 

Thanks for visiting and leaving your dear notes.. 
God bless.. 
Very wise words.. xo

  4. Hello Faye, I.am glad I am not the only one with cobwebs here and there. It has been too hot to do much housework during our protracted heatwaves but today it is coolish and windy so we have a reprieve to recharge our batteries before the next blast of heat arrives. We need just a little of your snow over here to cool us down. LOL!

  11. Lovely that you are honoring Laura Ingalls Wilder in this post. I think every one enjoys her books! I shared one of her housekeeping tricks of the trade in my blog post yesterday titled, Homemaking, A Challenge and A Survey. :-)

  12. Faye, as always I enjoy reading your blog and looking at your pictures. So neat to see the quote from Laura Ingalls Wilder. I was at the Ingalls Homestead in DeSmet, SD., this past September. After touring the old homeplace, I got to drive a team of horses and covered wagon out to a school house like she taught in. When the family was in town for that long cold winter they had to have a supply of heat day and night. We were shown how Laura wore down the sleeves of her coat by taking long pieces of old dried grasses and folding them over and over to make a bundle that would feed the fire. She had to do that for hours every day. If they hadn't had those grasses, they would have frozen to death. I have been down to MS to visit family and just flew back to southern PA this past Wednesday. Thank the Lord, I made it in before the snow that I woke up to on Thursday. But like my husband says, "another day closer to spring." We are to have warmer temps today so hopefully it will melt the snow.

  13. It indeed has been a long winter, Faye. Happy Birthday to Laura Ingalls Wilder. I don't see a spring day ahead probably until May or so...at least in these parts of New York.

    Hope your Valentines Dinner went well, hopefully you will blog about it, smiling. Have a lovely week ahead.

  14. Faye, I love Laura Ingalls Wilder, and I'll tell you a little secret.....I still watch the Little House on the Prairie reruns all the time. They are probably my favorite series (also Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman). I just love hearing about those pioneer days, and the women were such troopers. This quote of hers you have shared is wonderful.

    Have a nice Valentine supper with friends.
