This is one of the things I have been busy working on. My friend, Retia’s daughter is expecting a baby girl very soon and I wanted to make her something special from me. I finally got it finished. So little Miss Jocelyn, you can come whenever you are ready.
We have had beautiful weather here today. Our temperature is upper 50′s with lots of sunshine. AMAZING! I love it. We had a little snow Tuesday night. It was pouring down. Looked like a blizzard but it didn’t last too long. Just long enough for everything to get a good covering, making it all look beautiful.
The youth did their Christmas play Sunday morning at church. They all did a great job. I know we are a small church but our plays always seem to be so good. Everyone seems to put forth a lot of effort to do it and I think it shows in their performance. I do have some sad news though. I don’t think I have shared this with you all but Pastor Tom is leaving us. He said he really feels like the Lord wants him to step down and have someone younger step in as our pastor. Now I’m not one to try to tell someone what the Lord is speaking to them about but we certainly will miss him and Mrs. Sally. He says he will stay until the committee finds someone else but it just doesn’t feel the same knowing he will be leaving soon. The committee has interviewed several people and one is scheduled to preach a trial message on the first Sunday in January. I would appreciate your prayers for our church on this matter.
Well, I think that’s about it. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Every year the girls and I try to do a gingerbread house. I think this years one turned out pretty good. We buy the kit and then decorate it however we want.
Another thing we try to do every year is enjoy this coffee. It comes from Fresh Market and we LOVE it! It is (of course) only around at Christmas so that makes it kinda special. I think I will have to make us some after I finish this post.
Grace is finally feeling some better. She had to go back to the doctor on Monday. They gave her an inhaler to use here at home and that seems to be helping. Julie is feeling better as well. Yeah!
We had ice on Sunday so church was cancelled. The youth were supposed to do their annual Christmas play. We were kinda glad church was cancelled, that way the girls didn’t miss doing their parts in the play. Hopefully, we will get to do it this Sunday-depends upon the weather. Sometimes December is a rough month here. Today is nice though with sunshine. The temperature is mild-40 degrees with not much wind.
Well, I guess that’s about it. That Christmas coffee is calling my name. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Hello everyone! Things have been kinda busy here. This is one of the things that has been going on.
On Monday, Jessica dropped one of the big cans (from Sam’s) of green beans on her toe. Her toe is broken and as you can tell very smashed. I went down, spent the night and Tuesday helping her out. She has definitely been in pain with it.
Then on Wednesday, we took Grace to the doctor. She has bronchitis. They gave her 3 different medicines so hopefully she will be well soon. We have a few Christmas decorations up but not many. We do not do a lot of decorating. I hope to get the tree up next week but we’ll see.
Well, that’s about it. Oh by the way, Jasper is completely healed. He has decided though that he really enjoys being inside with us. He is kinda an inside/outside dog now. I hope you all have a great week and God bless.
Not much going on here. Just the normal things that happen this time of year. We are going down to Jessica’s for Thanksgiving. Hopefully, I will get some pictures to show you all. The kids are growing so much.
We have definitely been having some strange weather. Last Friday, we didn’t even need a fire. Today we are 15 degrees with a wind chill of 5. Yesterday our temperature was 10 degrees with a wind chill of zero. We have some snow and it feels like January instead of November. Hopefully, this will soon be gone and it will warm up some.
Well, that’s about all I have time for today. Everyone is about ready to leave. I pray you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. God bless.
Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well. Things have been moving right along here. I’m trying to think of what all has been happening since my last post and the first thing that comes to mind is our sausage making. Our local supermarket had pork on sale for $1.58 a pound. So Jess and I got some, the butcher ground it up for us and we made sausage Saturday. It was a lot of fun.
Another thing that has been happening here concerns our dog Jasper.
About 2 weeks ago, on a Thursday night, we heard him barking and running off the coyotes. We did not see him all day Friday. This was very usual as he mostly stays close to home. On Saturday, we were really getting concerned. Jess and kids came up. She and I were going to a friend’s baby shower. We drove all over the farm looking for him but didn’t see him anywhere. At the shower, I told all the ladies about him being missing. On Sunday afternoon, the husband of one of the ladies found him in the woods across the Parkway. Praise the Lord, he was alive. We think perhaps he was chasing the coyotes and ran across the parkway and maybe got hit with a car, the damage seemed to be contained to his back and leg. We will never know for sure. He was very hungry, very thirsty and could not walk. Hubby had to carry him out of the woods back up to the truck. We have been doctoring (babying) him since we brought him home. He can now walk but still favors his leg. He seems to still be in pain but not near as much as when we first found him. I think it will take a long while for him to recover. We are thankful to have him back with us. He would definitely be missed.
Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd. Lots of sunshine, blue skies, wind. Temperature is 55 degrees. A GREAT day for drying clothes on the line. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.
