Our Trip

Hello everyone!  I thought I would tell you all a little about our trip yesterday.  I did not get any pictures-sorry.  We didn’t actually go down into the town of Mt. Airy so we didn’t see any Andy Griffith stuff.  We did have a great time though.  We left here about 8:30 yesterday morning and got home about 6:00.  A full day.  We stopped at lots of produce stands.  They were all stocked with beautiful fall mums, pumpkins and such.  We ate lunch at Libby Hill.  We enjoyed it a lot.  We then walked around inside the Mayberry Mall for a while and had ice cream as a treat while in the mall.  On the way home, we stopped at a few more produce/farmer market type places.  Hubby bought 2 knives that he thinks will be good knives for working up deer and other meats.  I bought 10 lbs of pintos, 5 lb. kidney beans, 4 lb. black beans, 3 lb. yellow eyed beans, some white sweet potatoes and a cushaw.  I am hoping to can most of the beans to have on hand when I need them quickly.

We are working on our last sack of apples today.  I am ready to start canning something else (beans, soups, and chili).  Temperatures here are beautiful.  Much cooler with lots of sunshine (after our downpour the other day).  Dave, Jess and kids are coming up tomorrow.  The pastor has a clay shoot at his house every year.  Dave and Hubby are going to it while the rest of us go check out some yard sales and maybe a trip to Michaels.  Jess has requested an oatmeal pie for tomorrow.  I plan on making that this evening.  It is a very good pie that tastes like pecan pie, just less expensive to make.

Well, I guess that is about all that’s happening here.   I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
