Welcome to the Goodwife's blog! Here I write about our lives and the journey God is taking us on. It's a wild and wonderful ride, full of happiness and the occasional heartbreak, but the one constant is our love for Jesus Christ and our faith that God has a plan for us! We strive to submit to His will for our lives in all ways. We try to be good stewards of the land and animals God has blessed us with.

Sweet corn, green beans, peppers, and 'maters....see my ole' boy Champ in the background?
Itty bitty peach tree loaded!
The whole garden.........
Things are good here! Garden is thriving, hawk is working to keep the pesky blackbirds out of it, weather is warm (ok, humid and HOT, but who's counting).
We had a good three day weekend. I love spending time with The Man. We did some wrenchin' on The Dodge, which I love to do. The Man and I put the motor in on Friday night and then Saturday morning we went to the drag races, but it was just too hot so we came home. Sitting in the blazing sun on acres of ashpalt is a very hot way to spend a day, so we came home and I tilled the garden while The Man weed-whacked and The Youngun played in her pool. Sunday we had to run to town to get some other parts for The Dodge and The Man bought me a creeper of my own! I'm very excited about it! This way when we are both under the car, one of us doesn't have to lay in the floor. Only problem is I usually run over my pony tail with the creeper wheels! Ouch!
We are glad that The Dodge is finally up and runnin' again and hopefully for good this time. I won't go into the details of what was wrong with it, cause I know you all could care less, but hopefully it's all good to go now. It's going to get dyno-ed this week and then we'll breathe easy about how it's going to do. If they don't blow it up on the dyno, then we won't blow it up at home! We did manage to get the cops called on us, we are such hardened criminals. Darned busybody neighbors! As Hank Jr says........if ya'd mind yer own bidness then ya won't be mindin' mine!
