Happy birthday to my baby boy!!! MawMaw loves you so very much. You will never know the joy you have brought into all our lives. I pray for you every day. There are no words to describe how happy my heart is when you look at me and say those magic words “I love you, MawMaw!”
Here’s a picture of our latest yard sale find. Saturday we went down to Jessica’s to celebrate Sam’s first birthday. Happy birthday, baby boy. We ended up not getting to stay for the party as Grace was not feeling well. When we got down there, though, one of her neighbors was having a yard sale. We walked over with Dave to check it out and found these books. I could not believe it when she told me the price. $5.00! Yeah, I was one happy mama. 10 childrens classics. I love old books.
Yesterday was my beautiful Julie’s 13th birthday. Happy birthday my darling girl. After church we went out to eat and then went to the movies. We watched Kung Fu Panda 2. Going to the movies is still a big treat for us. We don’t do it very often because we want it to remain special and because there are very few good movies to go see. Anyway we had a fun but busy weekend.
We got a little rain last night. Hopefully enough to get the garden growing. Sunshine today with comfortable temperatures. Saturday morning we were down in the 40’s but I think that will be the last of the cooler mornings. Well, I have clothes to hang out and school to do. Enjoy your day and God bless.
We had a really nice weekend here in Floyd. Dave, Jess and the boys came up to celebrate Hubby’s birthday. Jess and I went to a yard sale in town. Later that evening they took us all out to eat at a local Mexican restuarant. We had a great time. On Sunday we went on a picnic down the parkway. This is a picture we took from one of the lookouts.
Today, we went down to watch the boys while Jess went to her doctors appointment. All is going well with her and the baby. Thank you, Lord. She will find out next month if she is having a girl or a boy. Daniel said they don’t want any “gwirls” there. Jess told him “but what about Mommy.” Daniel said “You’re not a “gwirl” , you’re Mommy. We are just praying for a healthy baby-boy or girl.
We have been getting lots of rain here. We have had a little sun this evening but mostly overcast. We still do not have our plants in the garden yet. It has just been too wet. We don’t have the brush pile burned or the lower garden tilled. I still have lots of flower seeds to get in the ground too. Oh well, all in God’s time.
Enjoy your evening and God bless.
Yesterday was my Julie’s birthday. We celebrated by having a picnic lunch at Groundhog Mountain with our friends, the Horns. The building you see behind the kids is the lookout tower.
This is one of the things you can see from where the tower is. The mountain in the distance is called Buffalo Mountain. I think you can probably guess why.
We had birthday cake, hot dogs, chips and all the things that go with it. We are so blessed to have friends like the Horns. Their kids and our kids have so much fun together.
After the picnic, it was time for some work. We went to Levering Orchard in Ararat, Va. Time to pick some cherries. We had a great time. It is a pick your own orchard or you can purchase them already picked. It is, of course, cheaper if you pick. Besides who would want to miss all that fun. We picked almost 9 lb. or the equivalent of 2 gal. They are very good. After getting all hot picking cherries, we stopped on the way back at this little store for an ice cream cone. It certainly tasted delicious. All in all, it was a great birthday day. Prayerfully tomorrow I will be making a post about a beautiful new baby boy, with lots of pictures. I am making sure I have my camera with me. We are getting ready to leave as I type this. I need to be there by 5:00, as she is scheduled to be at the hospital by 7:00. I know I have asked before, but remember to pray for us. Take care and God bless.
The field above our house has come to life. Several new calves have been born. They run and jump through the new grass. They have so much fun and are such a joy to watch. Today we worked outside most of the day, picking up in the yard, getting the garden ready. David, Jess, and Daniel came this afternoon. We had hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill. Ate them outside at the picnic table. The sun was shining brightly. A beautiful day.
The girls enjoyed some fishing time. It was one of those days that I just thank the Lord I live where I do. Clothes blowing dry in the wind. The birds are singing so beautiful. Frogs peeping. It makes me want to do all my work outside. I even open my window just a little bit at night so the frogs can sing me to sleep. Wonderful time of the year in Floyd. It’s been a really hard winter but spring in sweet. Just like life. Sometimes life is hard but the Lord is good and brings us through to spring. Well, I must go. My baby boy is here. Take care and God bless.
