Beautiful days

Hello everyone!  We certainly have had a beautiful fall here in Floyd.  Just for fun, I went back through my old blog posts and found the picture below.  It is the same tree as the above picture in Oct. 2010.  It was taken from a slightly different angle though.  

Absolutely beautiful clouds.

Our God is so good.  It saddens me to think people get so busy with their lives they fail to notice His gifts. 

We spent some time working in the garden this week.  Grace gathered her Indian corn she planted.  Isn’t it pretty?

We also found a few peppers left.  I plan on drying them and  making the pepper spice we like.

We are drying a few apples right now.  We love dried apples.  They are such a good snack.

One day this week I helped a friend of mine clean the upper windows in her house.

My last picture.  I took this picture this morning.  Just another gift from the God I love.  Enjoy your day.

Fall Pictures

Hello everyone.  I hope you have all had a good week.  I wanted to share a few fall pictures I have taken.  This little creek runs on the back side of our road.  It is always so pretty.

Last week on Friday and Saturday we helped a friend move.  Then on Sunday I went with Dave,  Jess and crew to West Virginia to get Dave’s new toy.

We stopped by Chuck’ s house on the way home.  Everyone needed some time out of the vehicle.


Jess’s kids had fun riding with Chuck’s kids while we grown ups visited.

Since Dave has the side by side now, Daniel gets to move up to what was Dave’s 4 wheeler.  Fun stuff!!

I am making a new yogurt.  Vicki and I went in halves and ordered this heirloom variety pack of yogurt starters.  The thing I really like about it is no heating of milk and then cooling it down.  You just put the yogurt starter in the milk and leave it sitting out.  So much easier.  So far, I have made 2 hatches.  I really like it.
I spent the day yesterday at Jessica’s.  We made a double batch of these popcorn balls and enjoyed homemade chili that she had made for lunch.  I LOVE fall!

I will leave you with a few more fall pictures.  Enjoy your day and God bless.


Beautiful 

Good morning everyone.  I hope you are having a good week.  I enjoyed this beautiful sky this morning as I was letting out the animals.  

I am so blessed to live here.

We have had rain this week so we decided it was time to do an inside project.  This is the new colors in the laundry room.

This was the before. We will be so glad when all the soot is gone from all the rooms but we are taking it one room at a time.

The ceiling before and after. We love the colors.  So bright and cheerful and the entire room is done. YAY!  

Today we will be getting some groceries, cleaning house and just enjoying the day. 

God bless.

A Good Week

This week we have had the most beautiful moon.  At night, everything looks so pretty.

We have been pretty busy here this week.  The first of the week was just normal stuff, haircuts, groceries, cleaning vehicles,  things like that.  

We had a picnic with our friends the Horns yesterday evening at Smartview Park.  It was SO nice.  Many deer came by.  They didn’t seem afraid of us at all.  It was fun eating our meal and watching them.

Then today we decided to tackle another building.  We will certainly be glad when all of them are done.  Three more to go!  This is the before picture and …

This is the after picture.  Definitely an improvement.  

Then off to the dump.  YAY!  This old truck sure earns its keep here.  We are so thankful we have it.

Then for fun, we did a little fall decorating.  Something we haven’t done in years.  All in all, it has been a good week.  I hope yours has been a good one as well.  God bless. 

Good morning

I love it when the fog starts to rise.  Now don’t get me wrong I do not love fog when it covers everything for days and I can’t even see my front porch.  But times like this it is beautiful.

This young lady is sitting in our art room right now.  We had to take her to the vet yesterday to have a warble worm removed.  She is on antibiotics for 5 days and will have to stay inside.  

We got our first egg from the baby chicks.  Isn’t it cute?  Hopefully soon we will start getting some color in that basket as several of the baby chicks are Americanas.

I spent some time at smartview park with Jess and the kids last week.  We took some snacks and just enjoyed each other’s company.   The kids and I took a walk around the park and gave mommy a little quiet time.  The leaves are starting to fall which makes the park so pretty.

John Luke loved his popsicle.  Usually he doesn’t like cold stuff very much but he sure loved this one.  Jess and the kids have been studying Mexico in school.  She got these popsicles in the Mexican section of Food Lion.

Saturday we rode to Meadows of Dan on the parkway.   This little store is called Poor Farmer’s Market.  

It is a really nice store with lots of local produce.

I finally had to build our first fire of the season.  Nothing big just enough to take the chill out of the house but enough to remind us of what is coming.  

I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
