Harvey~



Today we went to somewhere in Kansas~out on snowy hills~ to only God knows where~ to collect our new farm truck. Now don't laugh just yet. My Brian can do just about anything. I have watched him take down to mere pieces~ a 1967 Chevy truck and a Harley Davidson Motorcycle. In the end they were beautifully restored. So I have no doubt my ugly little truck will one day shine again! I have learned to never question his abilities. He really can do anything! So come Spring ~Harvey will look like the cute little truck on one of my favorite Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks.

The owners were sad to see Harvey go~he belonged to their father who was the first and only owner until now. They had many offers to sell him to be made into a "hot rod" but the family was sure their father would have wanted him to remain a handy dandy little farm truck to be used on the farm. Which is just what is in store for Harvey as Farming On Faith's truck.

I wish to have him restored in a bright red or candy apple red color. However~ his true color is the little bit of yellow you see~kind-of gold. What do you think? What color would you paint Harvey?



Once In A Blue Moon~


Once in a Blue Moon ... is a common way of saying not very often, but what exactly is a Blue Moon?

There will be a full moon tonight for New Year's Eve~and it will be blue to boot. In fact here at Farming On Faith it is just beautiful.
The second full moon in a single month is commonly known as a 'blue moon,' and that's what we'll see on New Year's Eve.

Provided the weather is clear, you will be treated to a view of what's commonly known as a blue moon, defined as the second full moon in a single month, or as the third full moon in a season that has four full moons.

Tonight's moon is the second full moon of December; the first occurred Dec. 2.

Though the expression "once in a blue moon" is used to describe extremely rare events, blue moons aren't all that unusual, occurring every 21/2 years or so. But a New Year's Eve blue moon is somewhat more remarkable -- we haven't had one since 1990.


So as you ring in the New Year don't forget to look up and praise the Creator of this spectacular Blue Moon!
