What We’ve Been Up To

The temperatures here have been wonderful.  Upper 50’s for several days now.  We actually did not have a fire yesterday or today.  Amazing!  So what do we do when it’s this warm outside-cut wood, of course!  Here are a few pictures.

This tree had been dead for quite a while.  It was a pretty big tree.  I hope you can see it.  If you look at the right of the picture you can see where we cut it down.  Hubby was very glad for his new larger chain saw.  His old one would never have cut through it.

The wooded area where we were cutting opens up into a beautiful field.

We wheelbarrowed the wood to the truck.  This made it a little easier to load.  Hubby had to split most of the blocks just so we could lift them into the truck.  We worked on this tree for 2 days and still didn’t get it finished.  Hubby’s chain messed up on his saw so we had to quit until he gets it fixed.  We did school in the mornings and then after lunch we would go cut wood.  It was hard work getting the wood around the hill but we had a good time working together.  I told Hubby all this physical exercise was keeping us young (lol).

What is more fun than riding in the truck bed after a hard day of working.  God is good. We are getting ready to leave for Sunday night bible study.  We are studying in Exodus.  Tonight’s menu is sloppy joes, potato chips and dip, cole slaw and dessert (unknown at this time).   I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Sunday

Hello everyone!!  Yesterday was our annual horseshoe picnic, however, being how I am I forgot the camera.  I did take pictures last year so if any of you haven’t saw where we do our horseshoe picnic, you can check out last year’s pictures here:  http://merryheartcrafts.com/2011/06/26/horseshoe-picnic/

We had a great time yesterday, with lots of good food(of course).  After eating we played horseshoes, had some pickin’ and grinnin’ (I did the grinnin’) and all around good fellowship.  I think we are very blessed at our church.  We have lots of fun together.  Next Sunday, will be our annual picnic and baptizing at Gallimore Pond.  We do not have a baptismal at our church.  We baptize at a beautiful pond that is close to our church.  And, of course, while we are there, we might as well eat.  The next Sunday will be our annual Sunday School breakfast at Smart View Park, just about a mile from our house.  We eat a wonderful breakfast and then have Sunday School.  There’s just something about eating outdoors that I love.  Every time we are having a church service out in the open like that, I feel so blessed to live in this country and so thankful to everyone who has sacrificed in one way or another so that we can freely worship where ever we choose.   There is just something special about the sound of hymns as they float through the trees. We take so much for granted here in this country.

Okay, sorry about going on like that but it is how I feel.  Tonight is our last study lesson on Titus.  I think we are going to do Exodus next.  Not sure though, we will decide tonight.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
