I love making executive decisions. One of the best lessons I learned early on in the small biz world was to MAKE decisions instead of wallowing in wonder and questioning every detail to death. Decide already! Yep, I made (make!) lots of mistakes and changes, and it's all part of the game (of life and biz and the world in general!).
Therefore... I've decided not to keep using the #joydare prompts. As much as I love them, with limited Internet access at the castle, it's just not possible (nor fun!) to try and keep up with them, and it doesn't make sense to just use some of them and not all (thus the counting to 1000, #1000gifts). I'm still intensely grateful daily and will keep blogging...just less stressfully--which isn't what should be at the core of a blog about being grateful anyway. Go figure!
So on to my list of gifts this week.... chickens! Thirteen to be exact!
Thirteen beautiful additions to the castle population! We're super excited to learn how to take care of them, and we've already gotten 13 eggs as of this morning.
The girls are intrigued, of course.
Celia loves looking for eggs already (let's hope this joy lasts!).
And now a gift for Easter week...
But now that you’ve found you don’t have to listen to sin tell you what to do, and have discovered the delight of listening to God telling you, what a surprise! A whole, healed, put-together life right now, with more and more of life on the way! Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God’s gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master. || Romans 6:22-23, MSG ||
Hi, I'm Kristi! Christ follower. Farmer's wife. Mom. Gardener. Artist.
I love to create surface design patterns and mandalas (and, and and...). You can find my work at the links below. We live on a little 20 acre farm in the middle of nowhere, and that's what I mostly like to blog about. Home, gardening, Jesus, cats. All my favorite things.

This is one of my most very popular designs. I love seeing my fabric on children's clothing and accessories. <3
