I will be 66 soon and Roy will be 70 in January. Our growing up lives were very different than the lives of those growing up now. We have memories of odd things in our past. Odd to those growing up now but very natural to us. I saw these photos recently and they brought… Continue reading 07.28.20 Who remembers using or doing this…..?
This blog post has been in the making for quite a while. I am so thankful that the project and this blog post is completed! I believe that adding a patio with a patio cover was one of the best things we've done. Yes, we (meaning Roy, not me) built a 27 x 16 patio… Continue reading 07.25.20 The new addition to our home and Roy’s new techy toys!
Are you a bit concerned with the shift away from cash or does it seem like no big deal? This information from Dave Ramsey was very eye-opening for me. I hope you will read his article with an open mind. It’s a two-minute read and he does a nice job of explaining this. A cashless… Continue reading 07.20.20 HERE’S WHAT NO CASH ACTUALLY MEANS, by Dave Ramsey
I looked back at last year's Chauvin Produce Company blog post for the end of June and wow what a difference. Hardly anything that we are growing this year is nearly as big or healthy-looking like last year's was. We are using seeds from a different company so since we are doing everything the same… Continue reading 07.05.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 June Update

I truly had forgotten how much time and effort is needed to grow vegetables. And just when some are starting to ripen, the temperatures soar to the 90s which makes being out there really difficult. The only fruit that has required anything has been our blueberries. Since those are necessary for my brain health plus… Continue reading 06.04.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – May Update
Roy went down to check on Bo and Peep and their four little ducklings a couple of days ago. He found these four precious little ducklings dead. I can't tell you how shocked and saddened Roy and I were.We were warned that male ducks are known to sometimes do harm to the babies. Because of… Continue reading 06.01.20 Our precious little ones are gone
This is one of those blog posts that is written to help us know when Roy did a couple of projects and what it looked like! The first project is the replacement of the glass in one of our bedroom windows. The second is pressure washing all of the exterior and touch up painting those… Continue reading 05.30.20 Seeing through the bedroom window! and a little pressure!
I was in my craft room painting rocks and Roy walked up outside to the window. He said "Come outside now and bring your camera!" He had a big smile on his face! I knew (or hoped I knew) right away what happened. Bo and Peep are now proud new parents and we are very… Continue reading 05.27.20 The most amazing thing happened at our house this week!
A quiet thought from Sunday, May 17th, By Bro. Bob Adams Church is not like it used to be! Neither is shopping, sports, business, travel, medicine . . . the list is endless. The ground beneath our feet has convulsed and turned the old paths into rubble. Everything has an odd feel to it. It… Continue reading 05.24.20 A quiet thought, By Bro. Bob Adams
