The Sun is Up

{this post was started Friday morning and I thought I would publish it Friday morning but now it’s Monday and I’m just now done!}

I love when it rains at night but the sun is shining in the morning… just wonderful! Unfortunately, I had to spend a few minutes outside at 4:15 am, when I heard the thunder, and was afraid the quickly approaching storm would wash out my seedlings and drench the toys and shoes that I knew were still scattered across the patio. So in a partial state of slumber I was up, outside on our patio at 4 am picking upΒ  seedlings, toys and shoes that I feared were about to get washed out. It was a successful retrieval, but unfortunately I’ve been up ever since!


Some friends of ours {Suzanne & George} own and run a family farm called Gaucho Farms. Last week my mother-in-law and I headed out with the kids to see their new lambs.Β  And my goodness, as you will see, they are just precious. George and Suzanne raise and breed Katahdin sheep {which are hair sheep, not wool sheep}. Suzanne is a wealth of knowledge and I loved learning all about what they do and how they operate.





They keep all the pregnant mothers together until they give birth then they separate them to a smaller pen with their babies. If they don’t separate them they steal each other’s babies. Suzanne explained that usually they have twins. Most of these ladies were busting at the seams.


I felt especially sorry for this sweet girl, I told her that I felt the same way when I was pregnant. And then I prayed it wouldn’t be much longer for her because she was wider than she was tall and I was afraid her little legs might break.



George and Suzanne also have chickens and a wonderful winter garden. We had a great little visit, the kids were in heaven! If you’re local and interested in any of their produce, eggs, and dare I say lamb I’m sure they’ll be happy to accommodate you, their website is gauchofarms.com.


Now before I go I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite things from pinterest this week. I don’t know if you know about pinterest but it’s a wonderful tool for creating an online bulletin board of the inspiration you find across the web. I’d tell you all to hurry over there and sign up, but apparently they are in beta and now have a waiting list, but you should get on it because it’s a fun little place bubbling over with eye candy. Now, I will admit that I have to have a heart evaluation every time I get on there… reminding myself to be inspired by what I see yet still grateful for all that I have.

So, for this Friday afternoon I thought I’d pull one image from each of my boards.

{Now it’s Sunday and I’m picking back up}

My mother is a saint and has been helping me fix up our master bathroom for the last 2 days. When I say fix up, I mean the two of us in there together puttying and painting and laughing often at ourselves because it’s a little tight in there. Ideally I’d set her up outside with a comfy lounge chair, tall glass of iced tea, and a stack of magazines… but that would mean I would be inside painting all alone andΒ  well I know she wouldn’t have it and honestly, I need her help because I HATE painting. I do it, I try to enjoy it, but it is what I imagine is going on in hell around the clock… blazing fires and people cutting in around trim. Our bathroom is just getting a little face lift because it was SOOOO ugly. I mean, seriously ugly, birds that looked like white flamingos on the wallpaper. Anyway, they’re gone now and this makes me very happy!


We’ve had a great weekend and the highlight has been being able to attend our church’s annual missions’ conference withΒ  speaker Steve Brown. I don’t know if there are any Steve Brown fans out there but if not, you may quickly become one from the comfort of your home or iPod. His voice is captivating but more captivating than is voice are his words, words that flow effortlessly from his mouth. He’s funny, honest and aΒ  humble sinner saved by grace. He encouraged us Friday night to “smell like Jesus”, to radiate the love & grace of Christ in all aspects of our lives. Sunday morning he was back with more encouragement to weep with those who weep… really good stuff!

{now it’s Monday morning… this post has taken 3 days}

Sorry about the cruddy phone pic… I’ll snap some real ones later.


About 2 years ago I had draperies made for our playroom and have been waiting ever since to put them up. In case you didn’t know drapery hardware & rings {especially if your window is SUPER wide} can be really expensive. We didn’t really need draperies so I just waited and waited. Finally, a few weeks ago, I bought a drapery rod on ebay, a Restoration Hardware one that I knew would be perfect. Then I bought rings at Lowe’s and spray painted them to match it. The drapery rod was a good deal, but still expensive because it’s 120″ wide… and can I just tell you that the rod I’ve been waiting for two years for came in a box filled with popcorn and I threw away the stinkin’ finials with the box. Insert a few cuss words of your choice here. Well, I never saw them in there, the seller tells me they were in there and it’s basically my word against his and these days I wouldn’t be surprised if I did throw them away. Anyway, long story short, more finials are coming to me at a small cost. I feel almost the same way about hanging draperies as I do about painting, but when I hit studs on all three brackets I threw out a few fist pumps {for the Loerkes}. So the draperies are up {waiting for UPS to bring the finials} and they were well worth the 2 year wait! I used to not mind hanging draperies until one time Justin and I installed draperies for some friends of ours and once we had them all up we stood back to admire our work and watched as they ripped out of the wall, anchors and all… it’s been a year or so and we can finally laugh!

Again… poor quality picture but you get the gist… fun, funky playroom fabric with blackout lining so our guests, who sleep in our playroom, can sleep ’til noon if they so desire.


Ok, wrapping this up…


one last thing, do y’all like kids in raglan sleeves?



Rover has this “rooster” shirt and I love it on him, wondering about trying a raglan sleeved t-shirt for Honey Bee Tees, any yay’s or nay’s out there?


Happy Monday!!!

I love pinterest…now I’ll be checking yours along with all of my other fav. ones! I LOVE your drapes (and the fabric!)…I’ve had drapes and blackout liner for Soraya’s nursery sitting in her closet for a good 6 months waiting to be sewn together so that I can hang them. I can’t wait to see pictures of what you’ve done with the master bathroom! maybe it will inspire me to paint our master again…right now it’s like a neon lime green – it’s awful, but the thought of painting makes me want to pull my hair out. I love raglan sleeve shirts – you should do it! πŸ™‚

  • Kelley
    February 28, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    Well first of all,I never knew those were called Raglan sleeves. Learn something new every day!

    And yes, I like them. My oldest used to wear a Dukes of Hazard shirt that was mine (1980 holla!) that has said sleeves in BRIGHT yellow and he kinda rocked it. So yes, I like them.

    Second of all, those lambs are the cutest things ever (second to your kids, of course, who are always adorable). Makes me reconsider being a carnivore.

    Third of all…what was my 3rd point? I can’t remember #3. So instead I’ll just say thanks for a great post!

  • Abby Maddox
    February 28, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    My daughter and her family raise sheep also. Weekend before this past one, she and son went on small trip. Husband came home from work, checked on a pregnant ewe, she had had triplets. He went to the house to change clothes and went back to check on her and she had had another one–quads!! Next day he had a ewe have triplets, then on Sun. a single. The first of last week they had had another set of twins, and a couple of singles!! Made 12 lambs in 3-4 days. They sold one of the quads to a home school family, one of the quads had died earlier, so that ewe only has 2 to take care of now. They sold one of the triplets and the twins were both born dead. She said they would have a two week breather before they started it all over again. Lambs are sweet!!

    And? You have great taste, in pretty much everything.

    We have the same issue with our living room windows (super-long rod needed) at the new house. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to spring for one or just have to be okay with the back-yard neighbors possibly seeing me grabbing food from the kitchen in my undies every now and then… πŸ˜‰

It’s published by LifeWay and I assume mostly distributed in Southern Baptist churches like mine. The article was on how the online community can be used for fellowship among Christian women.

    One of my favorite posts, I love all the inspiration pictures. Don’t you LOVE Pinterest? I could spend days on there. It’s like crack for me. And the raglan sleeves. Yes please. Right now. Love them.

    i loved this post about the lambs! i made a list of 30 things i want to do before i’m 30 and shearing a sheep is one of them. the lady who has the sheep farm here in idaho said i can only watch the sheep be sheared because i might cut it’s head off. yikes! your post made me even more excited for my sheep-watching extravaganza! πŸ˜€

    Your drapes look great…well worth the wait. Your wee ones are just too cute. Those animals are precious, how great to know someone who owns a farm. My boys would get a kick out of that. Yes, that kind of shirt is a great kids one. Joined pinterest last week and I am smitten.

    I’m late seeing and commenting on this post but I had to say that I loved those grocery totes until I had a reality check and thought – but where would I put the kid (or two) that are usually back there buried up to their neck in groceries? Maybe one day when I go to the grocery store with no kids I’ll look into those. AND I’ve been saying for YEARS that there is a special place in Hell where all you do is paint ceilings for eternity. In fact when I hear about a particularly evil person I usually refer to them as a “ceiling painter” πŸ™‚

    I love that you added a Sheep photo in your play room! Those curtains are Perfect too. Lord provide sister Darby a painter she can minister to.

    1) home depot has sold totes like that with the clips for the market buggy– check it out– when I first saw them last year bought four– one should instruct bagger do not make too heavy at check out line 2) I feel for the finial fiasco. as I sat here appreciating my finials I was motivated to repair the tab top fraying on my Pier 1 patch work indian sari curtains with bright colors and gold metalic threads– the frayed tab was soo frayed, but I was soo motivated by your images Darby to fix my curtains to fully appreciate my finials!! –my repair consisted of a layer of pellon , gold lame’ fabric, the remaining original tab fabric with stitching removed — which looked like an artifact from long ago and and crinolin/net( which secured and allow for a tranparent look) I traputo stitched the layers to create a workable fabric thus to rework the tab. the front that I see as I post this; was the side most intact of original red and gold saree(sp) fabric it is so sheer and in my dining area even with the dimmer switch on full illumination no one is the wiser. Thank you for getting me up on my chair to fix that curtain– I can’t believe I did soo much before my afternoon shift at work. I was beaming with the thought of my completed task.

    I love raglan tees. I love Airstreams. I love twin beds and painted floors. I love mommas helping out with the dirty work. And I love lamb. Especially on Mother’s day for my special dinner. ;o) (Is that bad?)

    I absolutely LOVE the outdoor dining picture. It makes me want to create that for dinner tonight! I also love the “clean house” sign. I have one on my kitchen wall that reads, “A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen….mine is delirious” it kind of lost its humor when my MOM gave it to me!!!!!
