A Dirt Road


I love dirt roads.  Yes, for those of you who live or have lived on a dirt road, you are probably thinking that I’m a little bit crazy.  Well, yes, I am that but I do think dirt roads have a yesterday feel to them.  Forget about the fact that your vehicle is always dirty, either with dust or with mud.  They just have a slower type atmosphere about them, which I love.

Yesterday, we went to play with the boys while Jess went to the doctor.  She and Katie are both doing well.  Time is ticking down for them, just a few more weeks to go.  Well, I’m going to tell you all, those boys sure know how to pull on MawMaw’s heart strings.   I made the comment that it was getting time to go and Sam immediately wants MawMaw, following me everywhere, wanting me to hold him.  Daniel doesn’t want us to leave either.  We finally get out the door and I am almost to the car when Daniel opens the back door and says “MawMaw, I wish you could just stay forever and ever.”  I tell you, I sure love those boys.   They will be coming up this weekend.  Saturday, our pastor is having a men’s shoot at his house.  David and Hubby will be going to that.  


I will leave you all with a sunrise picture Grace took the other morning.  She was standing on our front porch when she took it.  Enjoy your day and God bless.


Dirt Road


I thought you might enjoy the view from our dirt road.  I know lots of you don’t have the luxury of dirt roads anymore.  There are quite a few still around in Floyd.  This one leads to our driveway, turn left at the big barn.  I was coming back from the milk barn and thought how pretty this is.  So I took a picture.  I am getting into this picture taking. (Hubby took the ones for this morning).  Notice the big maple tree, already starting to show some color.  I guess thats what temperatures in the low 40’s will do.  I canned 10 pints of spaghetti sauce today from some tomatoes we gathered last night. (Yes I said last night)  At church they were talking about how it was supposed to be colder than the night before, so we took a flashlight out to the garden and gathered tomatoes.  Hey, I’m not taking any chances.  I want these fresh tomatoes to last  as possible.   I made homemade pizza this evening for supper using the sauce I’d made.  The crust recipe was not as good as I would have liked.  I guess I’ll have to do some more searching.  The sauce, however was very good.  Everyone seemed to like it.  I’m glad.  It was a lot of work.  It sure did make the house smell good though.  It’s getting late.  God Bless.
