A Pretty View

This is the view from my favorite sitting place.

This, of course, is my favorite sitting place.  Hubby and I spend each morning here in this swing drinking our  coffee together. Notice the rose bush running up in the tree.  It took me a long time to train it to go up there.

I think God is ever so wonderful to allow me to have this beautiful place to live.   Thank you, Lord!

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Free At Last

Our chicks.  Look how big they are getting.  Today we finally finished their fenced in area and let them out from their little house.  They were very excited and loved pecking in the grass and dirt.  They are so much fun to watch.  Now when Daniel comes up, he will be able to see them much better.

Today has been nice here.  We worked on the fence and made the gate.  Then Hubby and I went to get haircuts.  A lady from our church cuts our hair.  She does it at her home and always has home baked goodies to share with us.  It’s like a visit instead of just a hair cut.  We always sit around eating a snack, drinking coffee and talking after our hair is cut.

Tomorrow is our church’s trout fest day.  Hopefully I will get some good pictures to share with you all.  Maybe, after we get back, our garden will be dry enough to do some work in it.  I hope to get the plants in the ground from the greenhouse.  They are definitely ready to be planted.   Next year, though, I don’t think I will plant any pepper or broccoli seeds.  They just did not do well at all.  The tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers though are huge.

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

 

Birds

We have been entertained all day today by these beautiful birds.  Many, many birds.  Every time I looked out my dining room window, I would see 50-60 birds in our yard.  Probably 20 of these were doves.  We love feeding the birds.  They love sunflower seeds.  This morning as Hubby and I were sharing our coffee together, we listened as they sang morning praises to the Lord.  Beautiful!  We take care of them by feeding them and they take care of us by providing beautiful praise music.  I think that’s a fair trade.  It was a little distracting doing school and watching the birds, though.  Well, the fog has moved in here.  Super foggy.  High wind warnings for tomorrow and Thursday 25-30 mph  with gusts up to 50 mph.  This will be for Wednesday and Thursday.    I never knew what fog and wind could be like until we moved to Floyd.  No church tomorrow night-it’s already cancelled.  I guess it isn’t done snowing yet.  I just looked out and the snow is pouring down.  Oh well.  We are warm inside our home, our tummy’s are full and our children are happy.  Life is good!  God Bless.

More Snow

More snow!  We already have about 3 more inches and as you can see it is still coming down.  It is supposed to snow all day today and tomorrow.  Wow!  I think it is going to be a snuggle in weekend.  I hope to work on Grace’s quilt this weekend, maybe make a few aprons, have fun with my girls, make a pot of coffee to share with my hubby.  Our front porch is enclosed with glass.  We love to sit out there, drink coffee and watch it snow.  All the beauty without the cold.  I have a beef roast on the wood stove cooking.  I haven’t decided what to put with this yet, probably potatoes and carrots.  Yesterday’s menu was meatloaft, mashed potatoes, green beans, mac & cheese, and biscuits.  School today as usual, maybe make some snow cream later.  Enjoy your day and God Bless.
