Follow Me ...

Too bad butlers don't have "follow" buttons.

I don't know what I've done (I'm sure it was me) but I've lost my "Follower" button on Blogger and can't seem to get it back. Even clicking on the Add A Gadget button in the Layout section doesn't help. It's not even listed as an option.


Aw well. Onward and upward. I hope other bloggers can still follow me, but, like Scarlett, I'll worry about that later.

How do you like my new blogger header? Hubby snapped that of me while we where walking home on our country dirt road today. The building in the distance is the Mill Creek Primitive Baptist Church. I thought it looked almost, well, prophetic. I'm walking home and looking Home. *smile* Huh? Get it? Guess ya had to be there ... *giggle*

Our little vegetable garden is coming along nicely.

The above photo is from March 30th.

And below is the one from today:

"Give my creation LIIIIIFE!"

I can't wait to be munching down on fresh Zucchini, Yellow Squash Ford Hook Limas and the like. Even the Giant Zinnia's are doing well. I'm so pleased.

One of the joys of country living is one has to be pretty self sufficient. If something goes wrong, you have to deal with it. I don't mind this but sometimes it's a bit of a bother. Today the points on the well pump decided that this would be a good day to no longer function. GREAT! (not) *lol* Thankfully, it's no big problem. Our Go-To-Guy for the well repairs saved our bacon in no time.

A few dollars spent later, we're back in business. Hubby did try to repair it himself (he's so smart) but well pumps use special parts and we still would have needed our rescuer. Thank you Lord for people with these special skills.

And this was an absolutely lovely Spring day. And what could be wrong with that!? *smile*

"This is the day the LORD has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it."
NLT [Psalm 118:24]

It was a gorgeous day for sure!
I love your header photo.
My blog follower button comes and goes - it must be a blogger thing. It will show back up!
The garden is looking nice.

I do like your new heading...the garden is coming along nicely. I know what you mean about being able to take care of things, as we lived on a 30 acre farm and reared our children there. Our water was a was so good. Have another beautiful sunny day! Your followers will come back when you least expect it! I see the 'networked blogs', but not the following one. Gotta love dear old Facebook.

@Blackberry Lane ~ I love this kind of weather. Glad your part of GA was also pretty. Thank you for the kind words. Nope, the follower button seems to be gone for good. Guess blogger doesn't like me anymore. *smile*

@Monkeywrangler ~ Thanks gal! And can't wait to start munching on our fresh veggies. I'll be sure to gloat, uh, I mean share when they are harvested. *giggle*

@Linda Eller ~ You're a country girl too and know how one has to keep after one's own equipment. The water is good. Only had to add a water softner because hubby was getting kidney stones from the minerals. I think my follower button is gone for good. I must have zigged when I should have zagged when posting one time.

@Simply Linda ~ Yep, hair is past the shoulders now. I should have hubby take a close up of me so you can see how it's grown.

@Patsy ~ You caught the "going Home" meaning (as in, going Home to be forever with Jesus). Excellent!

Thanks everyone for your always kind and welcome comments. Hope your day is as pretty as ours right now. God bless. ~:)
