Here is what our newest project was making soy candles. We did some thirft store shopping and found some cute tea cups to do a few in. These are my favorite.
Here is all the rest of them. We had lots of jars around the house to use.

So today we are going to make a few more. They are so easy to do and fun. They also smell great. This is what I'm planning on for Christmas gifts.
It is going to get pretty hot here today. Really humid that is the worst. Avery is mowing our hay for the first time today. Summer is for sure here now the haying season starts. We have had two goat kids since the last time I posted. Also a new bull calf. We still have 5 cows to calve. They are our late calvers. I will get some pictures of the babies around. The goat kids are so cute. They are from my daughters goat and they were so little. Two girls I told her how lucky.
Yesterday a nerby town was having city wide clean out. So me and the kids went after church to pick curbs. We had so much fun and got two loads of metal. We also got some other goodies. I can not believe the things people throw out. We really live in such a wasteful society.
Have a great day! Rebekah

I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked up to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him,
and delivers them.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
Come you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Who is the man who desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
The righteous cry out and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as have a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones: not one if them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.
The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.

Hello everyone, the corn planting is all done on our farm such a relief. Now we will be on to planting the beans. I'm thinking it is time to start my garden. We are scaling way back on the garden this year. I'm going to have tomatoes, beans, zucchini, lettuce, onions and corn. My husband planted the corn as I was telling you in my last post with the corn planter. He planted two rows out in the big field with the field corn. So therefore the kids are going to have corn to sell this year.

My hubby has another two weeks off work and I'm loving it. Saturday we went to a big farm auction
for the day. We were able to get a grain truck we have been needing. I also got a chicken brooder, a water er and some tub feeders. So it was worth going.

Sunday we attended church and in the afternoon my aunts came to visit. It was such a nice quiet day
of peace and rest.

Today I'm taking the oldest son to get his truck legal so he has his own way to get around. I'm very excited about this!

We have about 6 ducks and 1 bantam chicken sitting on eggs so lots of babies soon.

Have a great day and God bless. Rebekah
