A Splash of Color

My Christmas cactus is blooming.  I don’t think it has ever bloomed at Christmas but it’s very pretty no matter when it blooms.  I love the bright pink color.  It always makes me feel happy when I look at it.

Temperatures here this morning were mid 20’s with a heavy frost.  It has warmed up already to low 30’s and the sun is shining.  I think it will be a nice day.  We will be doing school as usual, then we have some wood to unload.  We also need to go into town to get some chicken feed.  Thank the Lord, we have once again sold enough eggs to pay for the feed. 

Jess and Katie are doing well and big brothers are adjusting nicely to having a little one in the house.  Katie seems to be (as of right now) a very content little girl.  She sleeps very well at night, 3-4 hrs between bottles.  Amazing!  David will be going back to work on Thursday.  He took a week vacation during Katie’s birth. 

Well, it is almost time for school and I have clothes to hang out.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Christmas in March

I think my Christmas Cactus is confused.  It bloomed around Christmas time and has decided (to our great pleasure) to bloom again.  It looks so cheerful and happy in the room. 

Todays temperature was a little warmer when we got up, 26 degrees.  It is a little overcast  but the sun is coming through.  It is now about 30 degrees.  I have one load of clothes on the line and am getting ready to take another.  They are predicting rain for tomorrow.

On the menu for tonight is pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, and kale.  I think I will do homemade biscuits with it and have cooked apples for dessert.   Time for us to start school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Just Beautiful

Our Christmas cactus is blooming so beautiful this year.  It adds so much color to the room.  This plant was a gift years ago from one of the bible study ladies.  It is an easy plant to keep alive.

Today is ladies bible study.  We will be watching the movie “The book of Ruth”.  This will be the first time we have watched a movie on bible study day.  We thought that since we had just finished our study on Ruth it would be good to watch the movie as a little break before we start our new study next week.  I will also be busy making rolls for our thanksgiving meal at church.  I have never frozen the dough before so I hope it works out well.  I think I might make some cinnamon rolls to take also. 

We have sunshine here today.  A little cool but not too bad.  I think I will be able to hang our clothes outside to dry.   Enjoy your day and God bless.

What do you all think about my Christmas cactus?  Ain’t it pretty?  It was given to me several years ago by a dear friend.  I’m not very good with indoor flowers but this one has been beautiful every year.  I quess I just have it in a good location.  Thanks, Barbara!  I really enjoy it’s color so I thought I would share it with everyone.  Today is a very dreary day in Floyd.  Rainy, foggy, windy, chilly.  Yuk. No outside activities today, except carry in some wood for the fire.  Oh well, it could be much worse.  School has went very well today.  We are learning about writing reports in language.  Not very exciting but necessary information.   Tonight is church night and the girls always look forward to Team Kids.  They have lots of fun and learn about scripture too, so it makes them and us happy.  If anyone wants to learn more about Team Kids, it is a program through Lifeway.  You can go to their web page and find out all about it.  We are still doing the Beth Moore study on the Fruit of the Spirit on Wednesday night.  Pretty good study.  Well lunch break is over and I better get busy.  God Bless.
