Daily Workout and Morning Routine

morning routine sky

It’s chilly out there. Well, at least for now. Here in central Oklahoma, we tend to get this warm snap early in the spring. However, we usually get a late freeze too. I am typing this on April 18th. Our last projected frost date is April 19th but we are expecting a freeze on the 20th. Geez! Some one spring! But regardless of how cold or hot it is, I work hard to get my daily workout and stick to my morning routine.

Even though we still have cold mornings, things on the farm must be done. Each morning, I begin my daily workout and routine as usual. First and foremost, I always begin my morning in the Word and spend time with God. It is the most important thing I do all day. I pour a cup of warm coffee with a little bit of cream, open my Bible and study His Word. Spending time with God is the most important part of my day. I spend a good amount of time speaking to Him in prayer. To make this happen, I wake up extra early just to make this happen.

What to Plant in Your Fall and Winter Garden

what to plant in your fall and winter garden

It seems almost impossible to think about what to plant in your fall and winter garden here in Central Oklahoma as it is still 90+ degrees Fahrenheit outside every day! As I type this, we received a heat advisory for our area ….. 103 degrees Fahrenheit today. URGH! That’s all I have to say! Yet now is the time to get those seeds and veggies into the ground in preparation for my fall and winter garden.

(This blog post is in collaboration with a sweet friend of mine, Megan, over at Simply Rooted Farmhouse. Be sure to head on over to her blog HERE and learn how to plant a great fall garden. She also shares what to plant in your fall and winter garden. She is located in Rhode Island, Zone 6, which is a bit different than me here in our 7a gardening zone. Also head over to her Instagram account as well HERE. She is cultivating an eco-friendly, simple lifestyle from her handmade home.)

Blackberry Crumble with Fresh Blackberries

Our Homestead Treasure Find

Making fresh, from scratch blackberry crumble wasn’t something that I expected to do this week. However, a homestead treasure that we found changed that. Don’t you love it when you stumble upon something that may be something you are looking for? Don’t you love when you stumble upon something that to you, is a huge treasure? I love a good find. Whether it is new or old, whether you are looking for a particular thing or not. I love stumbling upon something that truly is a great find. I am always on the hunt for vintage baskets, old pictures, white vases, old tables and chairs, and even old dishes. But something I love that happens is when you stumble upon self-starting and growing veggies and fruit around our homestead. That truly is a blessing and treasure to my family and me.

Welcome to the Farm!

Welcome to the Farm! We are SO thankful you are here. The journey on our farm started a little over two years ago. Not sure how the hubby felt but we three girls all wanted land and animals so much that we could almost see it in our minds as if we were there. We had discussed it time and time again over dinner but each time, we put the idea in the back of our minds because we didn’t ever think it would be a reality.
