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.

Old Books

I simply LOVE old school books.  Here are a few that I have collected over the years.  I learned to read with Dick and Jane and taught my girls with the same books.  They have such wonderful pictures.  The last picture is of two old books from my Dad’s childhood.  Inside the cover, there are the names of many of my aunts and uncles.  I suppose they just passed the books down.  Gotta love that.  We still do that here in this household.  Just pass them on.  These books have a very important place in my schoolroom/dining room, along with an old Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox.  The lunchbox is metal and still has the thermos in it.  It belonged to Jess.  Such happy memories.  100_2971

As you can tell, it was a much loved lunch box.  Lots of rain here last night.  Today has been overcast.  Temperature in the mid 40’s.  Not too bad.  Supper tonight will be pork tenderloin on the grill, fresh pineapple, home fries, home canned green beans and homemade biscuits.  For dessert we have some cinnamon rolls left over from the other day.  This will be served with cold mint tea.  Are you all hungry yet?  I am so I guess I better go get that grill going.  Take care and God bless.
