Tag Archives: Calling My Name

A Finished Shelf


Hubby finished the shelf we have been working on this morning.  I couldn’t get a really good picture of it because the room is a little small but anyway all the stuff is up out of the floor and I even had room to move my bulk containers from the kitchen in there.  Doesn’t it look good? 

This week has been pretty hot here.  Not near as hot as some of you all but hot for us and HUMID!  I think that is what makes it seem so much hotter.   I think I hear my green swing calling my name.  Time for a little rest.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Horseshoe Picnic


Yesterday was our second annual horseshoe pitching picnic.  I thought I would share a few pictures with you all.  We had a great time with lots of good food (of course), good fellowship and good music.   I think that hammock is calling my name!


A few of the people sitting around enjoying themselves.


What do you think he might be looking at?


Deer, right across the river from where we were. 


The creek.


The Lord blessed us with a beautiful day. 

Our VBS starts tonight.  The girls will be playing the music all 5 nights.  Julie is in charge of the games tomorrow night.  When did my babies become workers instead of just participants?  Well, it does this mama’s heart good to see them serving the Lord. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.



It’s been a while since I posted pictures of our garden.  It has really grown.  Everything looks to be doing really well.  You can’t tell it from the picture but the potatoes are beginning to bloom.


This is our beans and corn.  We kinda got a late start on planting them but they look strong and healthy.   Today is an absolutely beautiful day here in Floyd.  Temperatures are in the lower 70’s with a nice breeze.  It’s one of those days where it is hard to work inside.  I would much rather be outside enjoying the day.  Hopefully, later after our inside work is done.  I plan on spending some quality time with my green swing.


This is the kind of space I always dreamed of having.  It is one of the most peaceful places I know.  I so much enjoy coming and sitting down in this swing.  The Lord and I have had some of our best conversation here.   I am so thankful to my hubby for making this swing for me and for helping me keep this area beautiful.


I wanted to show you all how the sun was glistening off the rows of corn.  The corn stalks seem to be glowing.  I thought it was very pretty.  I guess I’d better get busy if I want to get my housework done today.  After all, the green swing IS calling my name.  Enjoy your day and God bless.





Here are just a few shots of our garden.  We hope to soon enjoy squash as you can see the bloom on it.  This one tomato plant will be an early one.  The others are not near as big.  Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Hubby and I finished getting the garden out.  We planted a few more tomatoes and beans and corn.


Later in the evening we got a good rain.  I guess God knew our seeds needed a drink.  The girls and I are working on cleaning the house today and washing clothes.  My house is a little behind as we have been doing up the beef.  Our total is 80 quarts of canned beef and 88 bags of hamburger.  Pretty good I think.  Tomorrow is bible study day.  We are studying I Corinthians. Little Samuel will be here in 4 more days.  Unless he decides to come before then.  We all can hardly wait to see him and hold him.  God is good!  Also hopefully David will have my computer back in operation soon.  I really miss it.  It’s sometimes hard for me and Hubby to coordinate on one computer.  His free time is usually my free time too.  Well, my time is up.  The wringer is calling my name.  Take care and God bless.



Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Lots of snow.  It’s really hard to get an accurate measurement here because of the wind but we know we got at least 8-10 inches,  drifts are much deeper.  The girls have already played in the snow and we have made snow cream.  For those of you who do not know what snow cream is, you put snow in a large container, add sugar, vanilla and evaporated milk.  Stir it up with a mixer and you have snow cream.  Very good!  The amount of ingredients vary so just keep tasting until you get it right.  This is a favorite of ours whenever we get snow.  I think today is a quilting day.  You know one of those days where I just snuggle in with a project and enjoy the life the Good Lord has given me.  I guess there will be no church tomorrow.  I really miss going to church but it just can’t be helped.  The roads are too  bad to go anywhere.   Jess even got snow in N.C.  I wish I could see Daniel’s face when he gets to play in it.  They do not get snow very often there.  So it will be a treat for him.  Well, I think I hear my quilt project calling my name.  Enjoy your day and God Bless.
