I know I share lots of sunrise pictures with you all but I thought this one was a little different from the others. I like the way it looks like a flame shooting up. That is not a trick of the camera. It actually looked like that. Our God is amazing!
I am making some more yogurt this morning. Today, I am trying the stawberry flavoring instead of vanilla. I’ll try to remember to let you all know how it turns out. We are still cold with flurries but I think it is supposed to be warmer by the weekend.
Supper tonight is crispy fried fish, oven roasted asparagus and rice. I guess it will really be lupper instead of supper. We plan on going to C-burg after we eat. Sally’s Beauty Supply has conditioner on sale in the gallon container. We want to pick up one of those and a few other things.
Not a lot going on here this week. Grace has had a little sore throat and congestion going on this week. Hubby has been dealing with something going on with his tummy. Not exactly sure what. I think a trip to the doctor might help but he thinks for sure (today) that he is doing better. We’ll see.
Yesterday, Julie and I went to C-burg while Grace and Hubby stayed home. I was hoping to find a few twin size flat sheets at Goodwill to use as the backing for the quilts I’m working on. I did find one but I don’t think it will be for Sam’s quilt but hopefully it will work for one of the other ones. We picked up a few things at Wal-Mart, paid a few bills and came on home. I’m glad we got all that done yesterday before the storm hit. We also downloaded sheet music for Julie. The song is titled Hope’s Song by Rebecca St. James. She wants to play and sing this song at church for Easter. She’ll have to work pretty hard on it though as Easter is just around the corner.
Julie and I spotted a few of these colts foot blooming yesterday. I took this picture from an older post of mine as we did not have the camera with us yesterday. It is always so exciting when we see these starting to bloom. They are (to my knowledge) our first wild flowers to bloom in spring. YEAH!
Well, I guess that’s about it. I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
Our apple tree is in full bloom. It certainly looks like we will have lots of apples on it-if the warmer weather holds out with no frost. Our temperature was 36 degrees this morning. It has already warmed up to lower 50’s. As I type, the birds are singing, the sun is shining, clothes are drying on the line. I truly have a blessed life. Thank you, Lord!
We will be starting school in a little bit. After school, I need to go into our little town and get a few things. Then hopefully get home and get a few things done here. I want to get our seeds started this week. Tomorrow, Julie has an eye appointment in C-burg. This usually is an all day thing. We want to visit Goodwill while we’re over there. The girls are hoping to find a few books. Our Goodwill has an actual used book store in a separate building. It will be a fun girls day out.
Our back road is full of wild spring flowers. We see something new blooming every time we travel that way. Yesterday, the columbine was blooming. I so enjoy seeing all the spring flowers come to life.
I thought I would show you all a picture of the apron I just finished today. I think it looks so cheerful. My friend, Vicki, found this pillowcase at a thrift store last summer. I think it turned out really nice. I like using old pillowcases to make aprons. They have a vintage look and the cost of material is greatly reduced. My aprons have not sold as much in the fall and winter as they did in the summer. I hope to make up quite a few this winter to have on hand for the upcoming summer.
The girls went to the Horn’s yesterday to celebrate Bubby’s birthday. They had a great time. Hubby and I went to C-burg to get tires put on the car so I had to miss Bubby’s cake. Our church collects fleece throws, lotion and socks for our local nursing home. The pastor’s wife meet us in town so we could deliver them. Today we have cleaned out the chicken house (YUCK!) The temperature here is mid 30’s. Not too bad. I know it could be lots colder.
Tonight’s menu is hamburgers on homemade buns, home fries and peach dumplings for dessert. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.
Thursday evening we went to our pastor’s home for a visit. We ate supper with them and had a wonderful visit. Mrs. Sally, pastor’s wife, had lots of beautiful Christmas decorations up. This nativity scene was purchased in Israel. It is made of olive wood. Very pretty.
This carousel came from Germany. You can’t really see it but on top of the carousel are propellers. The heat from the candles cause the carousel to go around.
This is Miss Izzy. Pastor Tom tells her all the time she is the most beautiful cat God ever created. I think she believes him.
Julie and Sadie had a great time together.
Mrs. Sally is a great seamstress. I think I have mentioned before she is teaching my girls to sew. This quilt was so bright and colorful. I thought you all would enjoy seeing it too.
We have still been having vehicle troubles. Today, we took the girls over to church for play practice. Our youth christmas play is tomorrow. Hubby thought the alternator was going bad on the van. We were going over to C-burg to Auto Zone to have them check it. We started having more serious trouble with it, so Hubby thought we should just try to make it home. We didn’t make it. About 4 miles from home, the van decided that was just all it could do. It stopped right in the middle of the road. I’m here to tell you all God is good! Not more that 5 min. after the van quit a young man came by that we used to go to church with. He went up to his Grandpaws and got a pickup truck and a chain. He and Hubby hooked the van up to the truck and he pulled us all the way home. No charge! Anyway, it is the alternator. So I guess the van will have to be parked for a few days until Hubby can get it fixed.
Well, that’s been our day. I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
We had such fun day yesterday. We went with the Horn’s to Natural Bridge. I have lots of pictures to show you all. We’ll start today with the bridge itself. Isn’t it beautiful?
This picture shows how big the bridge actually is.
I love this picture of Grace. I wanted one of Julie too but she was ahead of us with the Horns.
I wanted to tell you all the amazing blessing we had on Friday. We went with Hubby to check on a job and were coming home from C-burg. We had some rain and then the sun came out. When this happens, we are always on the lookout for rainbows. Well, we found not one but two. The girls and I had never seen a double rainbow. These both were complete arches reaching from one end of the sky to the other. They were so huge. Sometimes it seemed as if we were driving right into them. We got to see them for at least 15 min. It was so amazing. We were so excited. I wish I had my camera with us to take pictures but it probably would not have done any good. Vicki was at home with her camera but she couldn’t get a picture of it. She said it was too big to get it all. Isn’t God good to show us something like that.
I’ll show you all more pictures of our trip next time I post. I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
Hello, ladies. Seems like we have been busy here for the last few days. Friday, I worked all day (in my spare time) on aprons. I managed to get two finished. I took them down to the Bread Basket for selling. She had sold all my aprons except one. YEAH! This month is our month to clean the church and mow the churchyard. We went Friday evening to do this. Grace took this picture of the sky on our way over to the church. Hubby did the mowing and weed eating while the girls and I cleaned inside. Our homecoming is tomorrow morning and then our revival starts tomorrow evening. Here is a picture of the inside of our church.
Twice a year, our church sponsors a clay shoot at the Coonhunter Club here in Floyd. Today we had about 25 shooters. The girls and I stayed for a while and then we had to go to C-burg to buy ink. Monday we will be starting school and I needed a few supplies.
I guess I better get busy. We will be having a fellowship meal following services tomorrow. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Today will be a busy day. We will be doing our bible study, then cleaning the church and of course, school. This is our last week of cleaning until next August. After we clean, we will be going to a friend’s house to gather pears. She has generously offered us all the pears we want. Thank you, Becky.
Yesterday, we did school and then we had to go to C-burg to pick up a few things. Our printer was out of ink, Hubby needed some banjo strings and some shells for the Saturday shoot. Temperatures are still a little cool here but very beautiful. Low 50’s, lots of wind and lots of sunshine. I like that.
Better get busy. I am doing a applesauce pie for dessert today for the ladies. Take care and God bless.
