Book review:

You can be everything God wants you to be.
by: Max Lucado.
This book is about showing you how God made you unique and has given you special gifts in
which you can use for your one special job. He calls it your "sweet
I honestly had a hard time making it through this book, but once I got started it did challenge me to think about how I have expertise in some areas and how I could use that in my life.
He told stories about different people that were interesting and inspiring like Moses, David and others. About how God called them to do different things.
Would I recommend it? Not really, It wasn't fascinating or neither did it convey something that I am terribly convicted about.

Don't worry.

It's still summer here.

A green hallway. Otherwise known as appliance graveyard. If you look to the right of the picture you can see the deceased ovens and washers. :)

Tomatoes are getting ripe. That is very exciting. I ate about 10 on Saturday.

Our herd of goats.

New pipeline! This picture is facing west. We were riding on the back of our property.

I love a good blue sky. It makes me feel happy.
( Luke makes fun of me for saying things like that. )
( Yet I persevere)
Love, Keren

Just in case you were missing winter,
Here are some pictures of it.

Snowy post.
One thing.... Sunsets are better in the winter. Or maybe it is because they are earlier on the day I notice them more. :)

Elf Gregory.

Gloomy, gray snowy day. This was Christmas day actually.:)

In January I posted pictures of summer, so I thought that since it is the middle of summer I would post some of winter. :)

Love, Keren

p.s. I don't miss wintertime.

A few of my favorite things...

So. I have a few pictures to share with you.
of a few things I'm a fan of.
that I LIKE.
that are cool.

Just kidding. Not all of them are cool. or do I like. or am I even a fan of.
Okay... Actually I like all of them.
yep. This is also part of my series... that I've kinda haven't posted about in a long time.
my Thank-ful list.

I'm a fan of thankful, by the way.

It is a very healthy thing.
Healthy for your soul, and I believe that the healthier your soul is, the healthier your body.


I think whole wheat is also healthy, and green beans and bananas. But now we are totally getting off track. :)

Luke found a four leaf clover. That was cool.

I painted my fingernails an obnoxious shade of pink and I didn't really care for it at first, but now I kind of like it.

I'm a big fan of silly.

I rode a Ferris wheel. That was cool.

I almost got run over by a cart. I'm thankful I am here to talk about it today. :)

I saw some really sweet piglets. Are they not the cutest!?!

SO sweet.


Fairy Bea.


Bea girl. I really like this picture. I like shadows in my pictures. the right kind of shadows anyhow.

My lovely Anna Marie.




It was a big bee.

On the way home from the cities we stopped at Cabala's and Bea and I played checkers at one of their fake living rooms in the furniture part of the store.

I did some of the chores while Dad and Mom were in IA, I gathered eggs. and fed and watered chickens and watered goats and .... That's about it.
I like going home new ways, Sometimes when we go home from church I will ask Luke if we can go a different way. It is fun. and today after bible study, I went a different way and had to go on a detour past a second hand shop, so I decided to stop. I had the most delightful time wandering through it.
so.. Moral of story- Do try different routes.
It's fun.

Last night, since we were home alone, Luke and I decided to go out to eat for supper, We went to Mariachi, a new-ish Mexican restaurant. The food was kinda gross, but I like the atmosphere and the company. And it was really cute, 2 different kids at different times peeked in our window when we were eating. That was fun.

Dear Buster,

Buster got his first letter today.

Dear Buster,

Don't scare Piper, Then if you don't scare Piper, I'll pet you more often.

Did you know that cats are a type of lions?

Friendly Be friendly, Buster.

It's from Megan

Sometimes you don't sit, So I don't think [that] is nice.

I think that it is a very constructive letter. :)
