Hello, My name is Barbara and this is my first day!

Posted by Barbara at 4:36 AM 0 comments

This was my very first post in November of 2008 and it was a real step for me.  I have now posted 366 and have over 200 fantastic followers.    Life is good and blogging friends are the best.  

We finished one fence project yesterday 2000 feet of new fence and today we will begin another shorter one. 

Yesterday we had 3 workers and Roy, this afternoon, we will have one worker and Roy.

Why one the weekends?    This is when our young man can help out, he has another job during the week.  We can’t afford to hire him full time…….wish we could.

Have a Blessed and Happy Sunday and pray for the people in Mississippi that suffered and died from the tornados that struck their area.

Barbara, I think I discovered your blog when you were pretty new!

I know that fence work is hard but men seem to like it. It's a man thing. Right?

Hi Barbara...

My friend, I was just elated to have you join in with the fun of the Sunday Favorites "One Year" birthday celebration this weekend! Welcome!!! What a great post for Sunday Favorites...your very first post! Who would have known in the beginning that blogging would bring such bliss into our lives! Thank you for sharing this post with us! Boy, I know all about that fencing stuff. My Dad managed a very large cattle ranch in Texas for a number of years...fence repair took up alot of time!

I also wanted to thank you for your sweet notes and well wishes...also for adding the giveaway button to your sidebar...I sure do appreciate that!!!

Have a wonderful day and best wishes with the gift card giveaway!

Hi Barbara...Mississippi will survive because God will guide them...I feel Mississippi is a Christian place who know how to help each other out. I know many of our local churches have ministries who go there!!!
PS...feel bad when you get that chandelier and I don't get one!!! :-)
Thanks for the comment, I loved it!!!

Hi, Barbara,
I am thankful for friends like you that I have met via our blogs. It sounds like you all are very busy with the fences. Always work to be done, isn't there? Yes, I am praying for and thinking about all the folks hit with the horrible tornado. It will take them a while to put their lives back together. I hope you are having a happy week, my friend. Love and blessings~ Vicki

We missed the storms here in the North. I remember your first time blogging, because I was new then, also. You have tons more followers than I do, but then, you post more than I! I remember at one time you wanted to quit blogging...glad that you didn't!

Hi Barbara, you had me going for a minute. It didn't sink in that that was your first post. I started in May 2008. You have come a long way baby. I love your posts. I know I have said it before but it's true.

Congrats on 366 posts. Also on the many feet of fence. It seems monumental to me. Perseverance pays off. I am glad you are able to get some help.

I am praying for those who suffered terrible losses of life and property Barbara. How sad for them. How blessed that we are as well.

If you can take a break from fencing, come over for a moment. My grandson is 13 today and I did a special post. He will be looking for comments. Just being a grandma!!!

Thank you so much.
Hugs, Jeanne
