A Beautiful Sunrise

100_8757-Panorama

Hubby took this picture for me this morning.  I thought you all might like it.  It was very beautiful.  Today has been a gorgeous day here in Floyd.  Temperatures have been in the low 50’s.  Lots of sunshine!!  Amazing.  Need I say, I LOVE it.

Not a lot going on here other than just enjoying this warm weather.  I have finished another apron and have started another one.   I need to get a few supplies though before I do any more.  I plan on going into our little town tomorrow.  I want to go to Schoolhouse Fabrics.  I think I have mentioned it before.  It is an old 3 story school house that has been converted into a fabric store.  3 levels of material and any thing else a person might need for sewing. 

Tonight’s supper is chicken alfredo with homemade garlic breadsticks.  We are having homemade cinnamon rolls for dessert, thanks for the idea , Cary Ann.   I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Pioneer Lady

This is my friend Barbara.  No, she is not a real pioneer lady.   She is one of our Friday Ladies Study group.  She needed an outfit for a Red Hat function and this is what we come up with.  She looks so good!  I made the skirt and the apron for her.  She got the bonnet at Schoolhouse Fabrics here in Floyd.  I had so much fun making the apron.  I have never attempted an apron this this before.  It was challenging for me but I so enjoyed doing it.  I think I will make one for myself, maybe even the girls.  We think this would be an excellent costume for Christfest (halloween alternative) at church.  The sun is trying to shine here but the clouds seem to be winning the contest right now.  Hopefully it will be warmer today.  School as usual.  We are almost finished with spelling, only two more word lists.  This is when it starts getting exciting again.  When you can see the end in sight.  I have to make pickled eggs today.  My hubby loves pickled eggs.  I make  some every year at Easter and Christmas and sometimes in between.   I will try to document the process and post on it tomorrow.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Golden Hills

This was the view this morning from my kitchen window as I washed the morning dishes.  Am I a blessed woman or what?  We did get to have our Ladies Study today.  Hallelujah!  The snow has not started yet.  They are predicting 10-13 inches.  This will probably mean no church on Sunday which of course makes for a long week.  However if all goes as planned Jess and crew will be coming up next weekend.  She wants us to sew her some maternity clothes.  We will be going to a local fabric store called Schoolhouse Fabrics.  They have 3 stories full of nothing but cloth.  Then we will come home and snuggle in for 2 days of sewing, and of course lots of MawMaw time.  I can hardly wait!  It is almost supper time.  Tonights menu is one of Hubby’s favorite.  Fried chicken, gravy, corn and biscuits.  I think I’ll throw in some cooked apples too.  YUM!  Are you hungry yet?  Well, I am.  Guess I better get started frying that chicken.  God Bless.
