Our Trip

Hello everyone!  I thought I would tell you all a little about our trip yesterday.  I did not get any pictures-sorry.  We didn’t actually go down into the town of Mt. Airy so we didn’t see any Andy Griffith stuff.  We did have a great time though.  We left here about 8:30 yesterday morning and got home about 6:00.  A full day.  We stopped at lots of produce stands.  They were all stocked with beautiful fall mums, pumpkins and such.  We ate lunch at Libby Hill.  We enjoyed it a lot.  We then walked around inside the Mayberry Mall for a while and had ice cream as a treat while in the mall.  On the way home, we stopped at a few more produce/farmer market type places.  Hubby bought 2 knives that he thinks will be good knives for working up deer and other meats.  I bought 10 lbs of pintos, 5 lb. kidney beans, 4 lb. black beans, 3 lb. yellow eyed beans, some white sweet potatoes and a cushaw.  I am hoping to can most of the beans to have on hand when I need them quickly.

We are working on our last sack of apples today.  I am ready to start canning something else (beans, soups, and chili).  Temperatures here are beautiful.  Much cooler with lots of sunshine (after our downpour the other day).  Dave, Jess and kids are coming up tomorrow.  The pastor has a clay shoot at his house every year.  Dave and Hubby are going to it while the rest of us go check out some yard sales and maybe a trip to Michaels.  Jess has requested an oatmeal pie for tomorrow.  I plan on making that this evening.  It is a very good pie that tastes like pecan pie, just less expensive to make.

Well, I guess that is about all that’s happening here.   I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Rainy Tuesday

Hello everyone!  We are really getting rain today.  I think it is predicted to get about 5″ but I think we have already gotten that much.  Well, we really need rain so I’m thankful besides I love the sound of rain on our tin roof.  Makes me want to curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee or tea.  However, that is not possible as we are still working on apples.  I love the fact that we have all these apples but I am getting a little tired of working on them.  So Thursday or Friday, Mrs. Faye and her hubby and us are going to Mt. Airy to purchase new crop pinto beans.  We will be spending the day looking at little shops along the way and fun things like that.  Then she and I are going to get together next week and can them or at least that’s the plan as of now.  I went to her house yesterday to help her with her apples.  We did apple juice, applesauce and canned apples.  We had a lot of fun together.

Well, that’s about it.  Sorry I haven’t posted much but there’s not much going on here.  I don’t think I mentioned it but Mt. Airy is the home of the Andy Griffith show.  Have any of you ever watched it?  I’ll try to take some pictures to show you all.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
