Crochet Projects

Good morning everyone! Remember this project from my other post. I finished it! I really like how it looks. It is definitely the most intricate and challenging project I have accomplished so far.

Another project I recently finished. I think this pattern is my favorite. It is called a virus stitch. I really like how it looks. Both of these shawls are for friends. I love giving hand made gifts!

This yarn will be used for future projects. Grace surprised me the other day with a gift of $20.00 to use to buy yarn. Michael’s had Caron cake yarn on sale and the white pound of love yarn came from Joanns. I have already started another project with the white yarn!

We had a really good day. We did some fun shopping then picked up groceries. We ended our fun day with a special treat.

God bless.

First Fire

Hello everyone! I hope you have all been having a good week. We are good here. The weather has definitely decided to feel like fall. We built our first fire today and it feels really good! Having a fire means more work but I really do enjoy it!

I canned some thing new to me today. Herbed potatoes. I think I will be using them to make potato soup. I love potato soup! I followed the recipe from here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XzUzhlOQD3I&t=362s.

This is my latest crochet project. It has been very challenging but fun. I like to stretch my abilities 😀

God bless!

Jekyll Day 2

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your week. We definitely are! It is so beautiful here!

We did another walk yesterday. This trail is located at one of the piers.

It is a very nice walking trail.

We walked for a long time, about 2 1/2 hours. Needless to say, we were pretty tired but it is a beautiful walk.

After we walked the trail, we walked along the pier. So many birds for Grace to take pictures of.

We finished off the day by going back to Driftwood for sunset. My phone was being charged so I didn’t get any pictures.

God bless!

Jekyll

Good morning everyone! Guess where we are? We are at Jekyll!❤ We left Floyd monday morning about 6:30 and got here at Jekyll about 4:30 Monday evening. It takes about 10 hours to drive here but it is SO worth it. We love it here!

One of the first places we always visit is Driftwood beach.

It is so pretty here!

We are so glad Grace’s friend, Micah, was able to come with us this trip.

Hurricane Ian came through here at the end of last week so Monday and Tuesday were a little chilly. As you can tell we have jackets on. I think it will be warming back up today and tomorrow.

Grace got this cute little backpack at the welcome center. Then we did our walk behind Dairy Queen.

We saw the alligator. He sure has gotten big!

We also saw the bird!

We saw a beautiful sunset yesterday. We went to a new (to us) place on the island to see this sunset. We saw dolphins swimming.

Grace took this picture. My phone couldn’t get a good picture of the dolphin. We went back to Driftwood and Grace took some awesome night pictures.

The moon was beautiful!

I think she has so much talent!

I love these pictures! Thanks Grace!

I took this picture of Grace! I absolutely love it! She didn’t even know I was taking it.

That’s all for now. We have more adventures planned. God bless!
