A New Chair

I thought I would show you all a new chair design Hubby is working on.  I have requested 4 of these to use with an outside table we have.  After years of use, the bench chairs we used with this table finally gave out.  I think these will look very nice.

Just a few flower pictures.  It won’t be long until these will be all gone.  I have a fall flag hanging under the goldenrod but the wind was blowing it too much for me to get a good picture of it.  You can see Shadow sitting at the stoop in the background.

As you can tell, this little arrangement is in the green swing area.

I almost pulled these up earlier in the summer because they are right in the doorway.  Every time I would go out the kitchen door, I had to walk around them.  Now I am so glad I didn’t.  I think they are very pretty and they have decided to behave and fall over in the other direction.

We went over to a friend of ours yesterday to collect some wood pieces he had that he didn’t want.  Some of it will be for burning, some will be for making toys.  Hubby usually finds all kinds of things to do with scrap wood.

That’s about it.  Not a lot going on here.  I hope you have a great day and God bless.

 

Yard Sale Find

I wanted to share with you all my lastest yard sale find.  I love these old books.

Grace had a mishap with her glasses and we had to go get them repaired yesterday.  A startled chicken flew up from the roost and hit her glasses.  It messed up her nose piece.  On the way to Wal-Mart I noticed a yard sale sign.  Well you know, it is so hard to pass up yard sales.  I am so glad I stopped.   I got these books for 10 cents a piece.

I just love the pictures and the stories in these old readers.  I have several of them.  Look, they even have a dictionary in the back.

I know my girls are way past these books but I still love them.

A picture just for fun.  This little lady seems to be an escape artist.  She manages to get out of the fence almost every evening.  We looked out the window the other day and she was sitting here on the bench just resting.  All our animals seem to love this bench.

Well, I better go.  Our VBS starts tonight.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

 

Around the House

I thought I would show you all a few pictures of around our house.  This picture is one of the old walnut trees that is in the yard.  The faithful horse you see has survived Julie and Grace and is now being enjoyed by grandchildren.

This picture is looking out my dining room window.

As you come down our driveway, this is one of the first things you see.  Hubby built the bench a few years ago.  The swing was one purchased from Wal-Mart.  When the cloth seats gave out, Hubby made a wood swing to hang on the frame.  Can you tell we love to sit outside here?

This picture looks up into the field from the side yard.  You can see our grapevine and garden.  Well, I have a few more pictures but they will have to wait for another day.  Time for us to leave for church.  Tonight’s menu is meatloaf, mac & cheese, corn, rolls, cole slaw, cooked apples and watermelon.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Spring

Forsythia in full bloom.

The only thing missing here is my bench!

More forsythia bloom.

I just love spring!  I think yellow is such a bright, cheerful, happy color.  Busy day here.  Piano practice, shopping, a little school.  Beautiful temperatures.  I have clothes hanging on the line to dry.  Everything is getting green quick.  I pray things don’t get in too much of a hurry.   Frost is still very likely.  Tonights menu is shimp stir fry.  Dessert will be jello with whipped creme.  Simple.  Easy.  I hope to get some outside work done this evening so I want to keep the cooking at a minimum.   Hopefully more spring pictures tomorrow.  Take care and God bless.
