Blueberries and Squash

The girls and I picked a gallon of these beautiful blueberries yesterday.  It was a nice day for picking.  It rained on us before we got to the blueberry place but stopped before we got there.  The bushes were wet but the temperature was not bad and the bugs even left us alone.

Today we made this zucchini pineapple recipe.  We used yellow squash instead of zucchini.  It actually tastes like pineapple.  You would never know it had squash in it.  I got the recipe from here.  http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/zucchinipineapple.htm  A blogger friend of mine had made it the other day.  She posted about it here.  http://holcombhappenings.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/a-day-of-canning/  I think it will be really good.

Now, question time.  I found out from the internet this squash is called a patty pan squash. Do any of you ladies have a recipe for it?  Our pastor gave them to us and I really would like to try them.  Online it says it pairs good with tomatoes but I thought I would ask you all.

Our weather change here has been amazing.  We had rain yesterday which we so much needed.  We laughed and said the plants in our garden were doing a happy dance for God.  The temperatures have cooled off so much.  We are right now at 73 degrees!!!  Thank you Lord.

Well, that’s about all.  I hope you have a great evening and God bless.

Just a Swingin

Sam really loves his swing.  He does not however like his car seat.  He was sooooooo ready to be home Saturday after shopping.  He wanted his swing and some sleep.  Us girls got up early and went blueberry picking.  We picked 2 gallon-1 for us and 1 for Jess.  We came home just before the rain started.  Good timing.  It rained  most of the day there.

Afterward, we all went out to eat at Golden Corral.  Then we went to look around at Lifeway.  I purchased a new bible study.  It is Ruth by Kelly Minter.  I think this will be our next Friday Ladies Study.  It looks very interesting.   I saw so many new studies that I want to do.  We even picked out one for the girls to do for their bible class this coming year.  It was a great day.  We all had lots of fun.

We are getting some much needed rain today.  Temperatures are cooler too.  74 degrees right now.  I like that.   Did you all notice my drying log on the right.  My darling baby girl, Grace, did that for me.  She told me she watched David put the others on.  I was very impressed with her knowledge as I have no idea how to do any of that.  Thanks Grace.

Church was very nice yesterday.  Our pastor’s sermon was on what it takes to make a man.  It was a very good sermon.  Then we had communion, followed by a fellowship meal.  LOTS o f good food.  Then we had more good food last night with our Sunday Evening Study.  All in all it was a really good day.  I better get busy.  Take care and God bless.

Home Place

This is a picture of our Grundy home.  The original house was built by my grandparents.  It (like most old homes) had rooms added on.  I was 12 years old when I first moved into this home and 40 when I left.  Leaving was hard.  Life changes though and we must be able to change with it.  I have so many happy memories of this place but I also have many happy memories of where I am now.  

The girls and I have been busy.  We had 23 qts. of green beans.  We finished them today.  We also put  more squash in the freezer.  We are going down to Jessica’s this evening.  Tomorrow us girls will be going blueberry picking while Dad and PawPaw watch the two boys.  After that we plan on going to Lifeway and then out to eat.  We will be coming back home tomorrow evening. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.
