Here are a few pictures of the decorations for bible school.  Our theme this year was Harvesting God’s Word.  We had lots of good lessons, fun crafts and games, and of course good food.   We averaged around 17 kids each night.   I wanted to get some pictures of the kids, but Hubby put it all on video and I don’t know how to load that on the blog.  Our pastor was there every night.  He has such a heart for kids.  I think he had as much fun as they did.

Progress is slow but moving on the new room.  A minor setback occurred when we decided to put the door in a different place.  This required undoing almost all we had done.  Hubby had to remove the floor and do all the plumbing drains different.  This will be much better though than the original plan. 

The girls and I have been busy today putting up gooseberries in the freezer.  We had 6 bags.  This is the first time I have froze gooseberries.  I hope they will be good.  I also gathered some squash and zucchini to put in the freezer.   We will  be enjoying the first of our broccoli this evening with supper.  I think home grown broccoli is so much better than store bought but then I think everything is better home grown.   If I finish these other veggies in time, I think I will put up some rhubarb.  I have gotten a little behind with my harvesting due to bible school and the new room.  Oh well, all in God’s time.   It has been a very pleasant morning for me.   I so much enjoy putting up our own veggies that we raise in our garden.  It always gives me a feeling of peace and contentment. 

We are planning to go to the fireworks this evening in town.  We had hoped the Horn’s would get to meet us there but Quentin had to work.  Jess and Dave are going to enjoy fireworks down at their town.  They will be coming up next weekend.  Sam’s first trip to the mountains.  I can hardly wait to see them all.  I guess I better get busy if I expect to get anything done.   Happy 4th of July.  Take care and God bless.

My Yard Sale Find

On our way home from Grayson Highlands Saturday, we stopped at a yard sale.  This is what I found.  I know it needs some work but I got it at a really good price-$5.00.  I figure my Hubby can do some repairs and it will look great.  I need to find a belt for it.  Hopefully, this will not be too hard to find. 

This week is Bible School at church so things have been really busy.  We have to leave around 6:15 P.M. and don’t get home until around 10:00.  This makes for a long but fun evening.  We start on Sunday and go through Thursday.  The first night we had 11 kids, last night 19.  As I have said before we are a small church-few in number but large in our love of the Lord.

Hubby has some days off this week, so he has started a project.  We want to box in half of our back porch, move the washing machine and dryer in this new room.  We also plan on putting a half bath in there too, as we only have one bathroom.   All this means a really busy week here. 

Time for lunch.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
