Friday Ladies Bible Study Group

100_3262

This is our Friday Ladies Group.  Okay so two are looking down but it is the best we could do.  The sun was shining directly in our eyes.  The study as I have said before is really good.  We have 3 more lessons to go.  Then we are going to do I Corinthians using John MacArthur’s study book.  Today has been busy.  I made a loaf of bread, then made a batch of laundry detergent.  We are doing school and in my spare time I have hung out 4 extra large loads of laundry on the line.  Rain is supposed to come tomorrow so I wanted to get as much dried outside as I could.  We had frost this morning with temperatures about 28.  The house is just now started to warm up.  I didn’t want to build a fire because then the clothes I put on the line smell like wood smoke.  Not a bad smell-just not that fresh spring smell I wanted.  Tonights supper menu will be baked chicken, broccoli and cheese, and mashed potatoes.  And of course the  bread I made today.  Dessert will be rhubard dumplings.  Sounds pretty good.  I guess I better get started on all this food.  Hubby has just come in and seems to be VERY hungry.  Take care and God bless.

Thursday’s Fun

Here are some pictures of the fun we had last Thursday on Jess and Daniel’s visit.  In the first picture, we are outside playing, the next picture is coltsfoot (one of our earliest wildflowers to bloom).  We took a ride around the farm in “MawMaw’s bumpy truck”.  On the tractor road, we spotted these kildeer walking on the road.  Jess took the picture from the truck.  I think they might have a nest somewhere close as they did not want to leave thier area.  The last picture is Daniel, thinking.  I am not exactly sure but it looks like he is trying to figure out how to get the sawdust in his wheelbarrow.  We had lots of fun!

Tonight’s menu is pork tenderloin on the grill, french fries and corn on the cob-frozen from our garden last year.  I gathered some rhubarb today and plan to make rhubarb dumplings for dessert. 

Rosemary Marinade Recipe

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp minced garlic

2-4 tsp dried rosemary-crushed

Combine all ingredients.  Pour over beef, chicken, or pork. (I use this on all types of meat).   School is finished for today.  Time to enjoy the sun.  We got our bikes out today, pumped up the tires,and oiled the chains.  We rode for a little while.  Long enough for me to discover how out of shape I am.  It will take a while before I can keep up with the girls.  I hope to work some on the garden this evening.  We have some clean up to do before Hubby can plow.  I hope you all enjoy your evening.  Take care and God bless.
