A beautiful spring afternoon with just hubby and me...
And the temperature outside is absolutely perfect today. Tim asked me to go for a walk on our land...He showed me where he and Christian mowed around the pines in the front pasture so the kids would have a safer place to shoot..right into a hill of sand. We now have a neighbor on our left side and we don't want to shoot in his direction. There is hunting property facing west, so that's where Tim has the boys aiming now.
The blackberry bushes are growing wild all over the place and my legs got scratched up. Jeans are much better for trekking around here than capris are.The bees are all over one of the trees near the deck and hum continually .... and they seem so happy! All of the trees are blooming except my peach tree. I took a few pictures because the blooms last such a short time and I'm always missing them! I guess I just don't get the camera out quick enough.
Tim and I had lunch on the deck this afternoon and had a really nice long talk...about blogging of all things! We also talked about his work and a major hurdle he had just overcome with keycoding on Linux. Of course, I was just 'sooo' interested! Actually, I was probably more interested than you might think. With the company being so small, we've gotten to know his business very well..especially since Tim has worked from home all of these years.
Anyway, we talked about how we are going to make our own private 'campsite/picnic' spot in the front pasture which is now quite wooded. It's in a really strange spot, but Tim was so excited to show it to me. When we first bought this land a few years ago, everything was mowed down, but we really wanted wooded land. We've kept the back land mowed as pasture, but the front three acres are growing very fast!
The original landowners had dug a huge pit for a pond, but they dug too deep and got through the clay into the sand. Sadly, the pond never held water for long. (We have an ornamental pond, but it's not huge like the tank.) Now the pine trees have grown up around it and into it so that only the very bottom has no trees.
Once you walk into it, the world seems a million miles away...and that's where Tim wants a private picnic spot. It makes me think of Narnia somehow.
But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. I John 1:7
