Hello everyone!  I thought I would share a few sunrise pictures from yesterday morning.  It was a beautiful sky.

Saturday was very cold here.  We ended up not doing much outside as it was just too cold.  Sunday was cold in the morning but warmed up nicely as the day went on.   A good thing too as it was parade day here in Floyd.  We LOVE our Christmas parade.  It is always so much fun.  Pastor Tom and Mrs. Sally came home with us after church.  We had taco soup and applesauce for lunch.  Then we left for the parade.  Our church did a float this year for the first time.  Julie, Grace and several others walked behind the float and gave out candy.  It was a lot of fun.

In this picture is Pastor Tom, Mrs. Sally, myself, Julie and Grace.  Our float was one of the earlier ones, so everyone got to watch the remainder of the parade.

We are getting back into our routine today after a week  break from school.  We are working on science now.  We have already finished bible and history.   It promises to be a nice day here.  It has warmed up already.   Our temperature is upper 40’s with lots of sunshine.

Well, I better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

Old Books

100_7207

I love old books, especially old school books.  I thought I would share a few of them.   I thought I might share how our school days “normally” go.  I usually wake the girls around 7:00 A.M.  They get dressed, make their beds and come downstairs by 7:30.  Sometimes they fix their own breakfast and sometimes I do.  It mostly depends on what they are having and how our time is running.   I begin cleaning up the kitchen and they start piano practice.  They practice 30 min. each.  While one is practicing the other one is helping me and then vice versa.  We shake the rugs and sweep the floors every morning.  We have certain days that we do other things, clean bathroom, dust.  I have a chart made with the days of the week on it and the designated chores for that day.  We try to have all the house chores finished before we start school.  It is so difficult for me to concentrate on school if these things are not already done.  Laundry gets worked in  every day.  We are normally finished with all this around 9:15.  They then get a 15 min. break to do whatever they want.  We try to start school by 9:30.  We say our pledges, pray and then begin.  Bible is always first.  Then they take turns chosing what subject they want to do.  Our subjects are bible, spelling, history, science, math and language.  Most days we are half way through by lunch time.  We break an hour for lunch.  Free time for everyone (except Mom).  We then finish up somewhere between 1:00 and whenever.  Yesterday was a long day for us.  It was about 3:30 when we finished.  Julie’s math was very long.  Today is an easier day.  It is now lunch time and all we lack is math.  I’m glad as we need to work up an 1/2 bushel of apples.  I already have them in the steam juicer and I want to make applesauce from them.  Well, our lunch break is almost over.   I hope I didn’t bore you all too much.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Our First Decoration

100_4878

This is our first decoration of the season.  I like to use decoration that will work for all winter, not just for Christmas.  This is due to laziness on my part.  I so enjoy putting them up but not so much taking them down.  This way I get to leave them up longer.   Both my girls are sick, so today has been a rather slow day for us.  We only did what we call “half school” which was bible, math and language.  Then we took a break, went up to the building and found our little village.   This village sets every year on this table.  When the girls were younger, it was continuously getting rearranged.  They would play with the houses and the people for hours.   My dad built this table for my mom when they first got married.  There is a shelf underneath and when I was a little girl, my golden book collection sat on the lower shelf.  Funny, the things we remember.   After decorating, we enjoyed a game of cards and now they are upstairs playing a board game.  I so enjoy days like today-just sorry my girls don’t feel well.

 It is chilly here with rain moving in.  A good day for enjoying the fire and each other.  I pray your day has been as enjoyable as mine.  God bless.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl!!  Yesterday was party day.  Best Friends celebrating together.  Life is good.  Yellow cake with chocolate icing and only a few sprinkles (just the way she likes it).   Yesterday, Hubby and his brother went out to cut more wood and today he is going with our friend from church.  Hopefully lots to split and stack.  He is deer hunting this morning , something he truly enjoys, and something we all truly enjoy eating.  Good Luck, hon.  I’m not sure what the girls and I will get into yet.  There is always something to do around here.   Tomorrow we hear another trial sermon from the candidate for pastor.  We will have another fellowship meal after church.  We also start our new study on Revelation from John MacArthur tomorrow.  I think the book of Revelation is one of the hardest books in the bible to understand and probably the most misunderstood.  Hopefully, I will know a little more about it when this study is finished.   Next Sunday we will vote on the pastor.  I’m still not sure how to vote Yes. or NO.  I’m still praying.  I think this is a very BIG decision and I want to make sure I’m on the same page as God.  Pray that all will go well and that we, as a church, will vote according to God’s will.  Well, better get busy.  God Bless.
