That little front loading washer came
and now I can do my laundry once again by machine
we do run it by solar power as that is the only electrical power we have
and I do like the way the washer works for me
it sits just outside the kitchen door under the covered herb garden
should I ever need another machine in the future...
I may not want to go back to a top loader...
with agitators that...heh... agitate me
seems washer agitators can get into trouble over time
in any case, I am glad for some help with the laundry
speaking of which...
half of the roofing is on
hopefully soon, we will get that finished in the not too distant future
we had a visitor who has stayed thus far
a jersey cow that came to see our Ms. Ruthie Moo Moo
they seem to get along well
she belongs to someone who had her tethered on the land next to ours
she broke the tether and came on over
the funny thing is...
we have been looking for a jersey cow for a while
they are rare here on this island and those who have them...
don't care to sell them
so, it very interesting to me that this one shows up...
I would dearly love to have this pretty little cow
she seems gentle and is very quiet
she is also going to have a calf soon for the first time
my husband is inquiring if the owner would like to sell her to us
in the meantime, we are letting her stick around as the owner...
hasn't seemed interested in picking her up, yet
we will see what the Lord will do
my husband is in the center bottom of the photo below
that's how tall and big many trees are around here
he's been busy planting more banana trees
we like lots because...
we eat, sell and use the fruit as treats for the farm animals
so, the more bananas, the better
my husband is checking out the jersey cow that came across to our land
carefully, at first, as he doesn't know the cow at this point
she checked him out, too...
and they both gave each other a thumbs up
a local carpenter made our table and chairs from white cedar
because the wood grain was so lovely...
we didn't have the heart to cover it with paint
so, the carpenter varnished it clear
and I will make the cushions for the chairs
my one sweet little chick is growing nicely...
and I'm happy to report...
she is definitely a she
the chick looks just like her mama
and I had to snap a photo of the moon the other night...
just because it looked so pretty behind the tree branches...
in the early light of dawn
May your day or night find blessings of grace from the Lord.
