Winter Wonderland

I thought I would share a few pictures of what it looks like here in Floyd.  Maybe I shouldn’t say Floyd because from what I can understand not everywhere in Floyd looks like this.  Some areas only got ice but we have snow on top of the ice.

Yesterday was spent not doing much of anything.  Just chilling out, reading, playing games.  Just a fun relaxing day.  Watching it snow.

It is very beautiful, however, I do believe I am ready for warmer temperatures (I think I have said that before!)  Next week, we are supposed to warm up considerably.

My hero!  The first thing he does after a snow is to clear the vehicles and the walkway-just in case we want to get out.  Thanks, babe!  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

 

Peaches

We were very blessed to have these peaches given to us.  They are called Saturn peaches or donut peaches.  These are very small and I was not really sure how to best use them.

As you can see, we had quite a few.  We decided to make something like an applesauce from them.  We used the food strainer.   We made a pie from our peach sauce yesterday to see how it would taste.  It actually was very good.   Hubby was home yesterday and he helped.  Thanks, Babe. 

Temperatures here are hot.  We are getting a small shower here  this morning.  Much needed.  However the sun is already back so it probably will get hot fast.  We are headed into town for piano practice.  I also need a few spices for the beets.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Snake

We have lived here on the farm for 7 years.  This is the first snake we have ever seen.  There have been a few water snakes at the pond but never one close to the house.  Now I know this is a black snake and many people think they are good to have around.  I am not one of those people.  The only good snake I have ever seen is a dead one.  This snake was at the door to the canning building when Grace went to put the applesauce up.  She came running down and Dad went to the rescue.  Thanks Babe!  I think this is probably the biggest snake I have ever seen.  Now Shadow (our old dog) was resting in the shade when all this took place.  I guess he knew Hubby could handle it. 

The girls and I had fun at town today.  No great deals to write about though.  I saw a few dresses at Goodwill but nothing really caught our eyes.  The girls used their chore money to purchase a new game for the Nintendo DS.   They are really good about saving up their money to purchase things they want.  We think it is better for them to work for things like that, then they appreciate them more.  It teaches them how to manage their money, set goals and attain them.  Good life lessons. 

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

New Project

My latest project.  Today has been a rainy, cold, windy, and just plain ucky day.  So I decided it was a good day to start a new project.   I worked on this quilt top all day.  What do you think?  The big pieces are called fat quarters.  Those of you who quilt know all about these, but I am just learning.  I think they are pretty neat.  How else could someone who knows very little about quilting make a quilt top in one day.  Hubby helped some with the design, then hurriedly left the room.  Thanks Babe. Quilting is one of those things I wish I had learned to do at an earlier age, when I would have lots of instructors to help me learn.  However I have had to basically teach myself what I know.  I really enjoy doing it though.  Hubby got a shot at a deer today, however the distance was too far.  Better luck next time!  Gotta get to work.  God Bless.
