Wild Roses

Wild roses are blooming everywhere here.  We took this picture over at the job site.

Also, blackberries are in bloom.  If the amount of bloom is any indication of how many berries we will have, there should be an abundance of them this year.  I helped Hubby again today at the job site.  We pulled wire all day for the electrical.  I think I have always taken for granted the amount of wire that is run in a house to make everything work.  I will be helping him again tomorrow.  Hopefully, tomorrow will finish up most of the electrical.

I wanted you all to check out the size of this toad frog.  He was huge!!  He had wondered up in the back yard.  The girls carried him back down to the pond.  We thought he would be much happier there.

Another picture of the goslings.  I hope you all don’t get tired of seeing them.  It seems every time they come up into the yard they have gotten bigger.  Well, that’s about all for today.  I put a beef roast in the crock pot before we left this morning.  Green beans and biscuits sound good to have with it for supper.  I try to keep supper easy when I work with Hubby.   Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Tee Shirt Dress

This is a picture from several years back.  I was reading one of my blogger friends post and she was looking for a modest dress pattern.  I commented about how I had made these dresses before but I felt like my instructions were lacking.  I dug in my old pictures and found this.  I hope this makes it a little easier for her to understand.

Today has been cold and very windy.  Wind gusts of about 40-50 mph.  We are doing school as usual.  I hope to get some sewing in after school.  Supper tonight is homemade pizza.  Yesterday was very busy cleaning the attic.  We use this space as storage and every year it seems to get way out of hand.  It looks very organized now.  Not for long, I’m sure.  I’ve been trying to do some cleaning and organizing this week.  Eliminating some clutter.  I seem to have an over abundance of clutter. 

Well, time for school to start back.  Lunch break is over.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Still No Pictures

Well, we came back home yesterday evening and I did remember to bring the camera.  The problem is the camera card is in Jessica’s pocket book.  So still no pictures.  Anyway, we have got a lot done.  All the walls and ceiling is finished.  Dave and Jess are painting it this weekend while we are home.  She decided to paint the room a light blue, the official name is icy blue.  It sounds really pretty.  We are staying here until Monday morning then going back down to work some more.  We will be coming back home Tuesday evening as Hubby has some work coming up this week.  He still has to lay the tile on the floor and do some more to the electrical.  We will be starting our revival at church tomorrow.  I am really looking forward to hearing the preacher who is bringing the message.  I have never heard him before but others that have say he does a really good job. The youth from his church will be doing the music.  We will be having a fellowship meal tomorrow following the service (of course), you know we gotta eat.  I think I will take potato soup and salisbury steak with gravy.  I’m not sure if I’ll have time to make a dessert or not but there usually is an abundance of desserts.

Temperatures here are cool-mid 50’s.  It has been raining most of the day.  It is also pretty foggy.  I think it will be a nice sleeping night.  I just made some blueberry muffins and they are ready to eat.  I think I’ll see if they are good.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Critter Chompin

Tonight our church sponsors something called a Sportman’s Banquet, or as we call it The Critter Chompin.  Our church has a really great men’s ministry that reaches out to the hunters in our community.  Many women and youth from our church are hunters too.  So this is a great opportunity for them (and us) to enjoy the fruits of their labor.  They will bring lots of wild game especially deer as they are in abundance here.   We’ve taking turkey chili and it is simmering now in the pot.  It smells SO GOOD in here.  I can hardly wait to sample all the good food tonight.   We give away door prizes and have people give testimonies to what Christ has done in their life.  A very nice way to spend an evening.  Today has been a georgeous day in Floyd.   Sunshine, wind, warm temperatures.  Just wonderful.   I think I’ll go enjoy some outside time before we have to leave.  God Bless.
