These are the people I love! That's my sweet mama in the middle. I wonder what she's thinking.

Things I love

I love my dog, Niko.  He's a black goldendoodle.  That's a mix of a golden retriever and a poodle.  He's so sweet, unless we have company, then he's a idiot.  But I still love him.  I love my Jersey milk cow, Sweetie.  I love her more every day as we get to know each other.  I love milk, especially raw milk.  We used to have 16 gallons of milk delivered every Thursday morning when we were little.  Our milkman's name was Don.  I remember sitting at the kitchen table, before school, with our bowls of oatmeal.  We would be out of milk by Thursday, so he'd be there to deliver for breakfast, and he'd leave with oatmeal on his cheek. 

I love making goat milk soap.  It started out as a 4H project with my daughter, and ended up being my hobby.  I love growing a garden and canning the harvest.  I love my fruit trees.  They haven't given me anything yet, but they will.  And when they do, I will love that too.  I love baking.  I love fine point pens.  I love making lists, and I love old barns.  I love photographing old barns too, especially in black and white.  I love lilacs and cedars.  I also love braids.

I love camping, Mexican food, beer and coffee.  Yes!  I love coffee!  I love the sunrise and the sunsets.  I have a picture of the sunrise from this morning for you today.  I love smiling, and receiving one in return.  That's one of my favorites, too.  I love listening to Dr. David Jeremiah on the radio every morning on my way to work.  I love visiting farms.  I love my magazine subscriptions;  Mother Earth News, Backwoods Home, Hobby Farm, and Hobby Farm Home.   I love Jackie Clay's canning book!  I love the Bible, old familiar hymns and I love teaching Sunday School.  I really love the Apostle's Creed.

Most of all, I love my life.  Everything in it has been a wonderful gift from God.  I thank Him every day for all He has blessed me with. 

What do you love?
