An Unusual Visitor

Hello ladies!  I just wanted to thank all of you for your prayers.  The visit at the doctor today went well.  The doctor is treating him for a kidney infection which she thinks is definitely part of his problem.  She also wants him to come back in 3 weeks for more blood work.  There is a possibility he is a diabetic.  Thank you all again for your prayers.

I also wanted to show you these pictures of a visitor we had at the pond the other day.  Our pond has been seeing LOTS of activity.  The morning this guy came in we had about 60 geese and several ducks there.  They are lots of fun to watch.

I have no idea what type of goose this is, maybe he is a domestic breed.  I don’t know but he sure did stick out from the rest.   We also had a visit from these quys.

There were 2 males and one female.  The males were so aggressive.  They fought most of the day.  I’m not sure which one ended up being the victor but today when the ducks came back there was only one male and one female.  I guess one of the males finally gave up.

I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.

Hello everyone!  Today we have beautiful sunshine with temperatures in the low 30’s.  We are going to the Horn’s after school.  I am making  a simple vanilla cake with caramel icing.  I got the recipe from Mrs. Faye at http://theblessedhearth.blogspot.com/  I think it looks really good and can’t wait to try it.

We have a doctor’s appointment on Monday at 9:45 to go over the results of the blood work.  I would appreciate your prayers concerning this.

Well, that’s it.  Just a quick little post.  I have cake to bake.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

 

Monday

Hello everyone!  Seems like time goes by so quickly.  I wanted to give you all an update on Hubby.  He is doing some better.  We did go to the doctor on Thursday.  They did some blood work and we are waiting on the results.

We had a very busy but great weekend.  Chuck and his family came and spent Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday with us.  Irma and her kids were gone to N.C. to see her family.    Her dad has been diagnosed with cancer.  Anyway, Chuck and kids went with us to church on Sunday.  We had a really good crowd at church.  Several visitors, which is very unusual for us.

Today was school as usual.  I had hoped to work on Sam’s quilt but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  Probably won’t happen today.  I have all the squares sewn together now and am ready to start putting it all together.  I think it looks pretty good.  I will take a picture and show you all when it is finished.  I gave Alexius her quilt this weekend.  She slept under it Saturday night.  When they were leaving Sunday evening, she forgot to carry out her overnight bag.  Chuck carried it out for her.  He asked her if she had forgotten anything.  She said, “No, I got my quilt.”  She wanted to make sure she didn’t forget it.

We have been cold here today.  Morning wind chill temperature was zero when we got up. We did have sunshine though but it still has been cold all day.  I think I am ready for warmer temperatures.  I got a new seed book in the mail today which we have already looked through.  Looking at all that beautiful produce always gives me the fever to go play in the dirt.  Well, it won’t be too much longer (I hope).

Enjoy your evening and God bless.
