Creeping Phlox

I took this picture of creeping phlox last week in Salem when Grace had her eye appointment.  Lots of things have been springing to life around here this week.  I hope to have pictures to show you later in the week. 

Yesterday was spent outside.  We got the fence posts in the ground for the new chicken lot, picked up the yard, got some mowing done and worked on a flower bed.  Then it was time to get ready for church.  Our church was having a special singing last night.  The group singing was The Hylton’s.  They were 4 generations of them singing praises to the Lord.  The youngest was about 3 and she sang “Jesus Loves Me.”  It was beautiful.  I can just imagine Jesus listening to her sing and saying oh, how I love these little ones. 

Today we have overcast skies with a light drizzle.  The temps have dropped some and the fog is moving in.  I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and God bless.

Butterfly

I took these pictures the other day when we were cutting wood.   This butterfly is especially for Jess.

A picture of a fire pink.  There were lots of these blooming in the wooded area.

There is a little trial you can walk that circles around.  This is the beginning of the wooded part of the trial.

About 1 second after I took this picture, a squirrel came running down this trial straight toward me.  I was not fast enough with the camera to get a picture.  I am experiencing technical difficulties with my computer.  My technical support team (Dave) says it is my hard drive.  For now, I am using Hubby’s computer.  For all the people whose blog I read and comment on,  there may be a season of silence.  I have them on my computer in my favorites list and I do not know how to transfer them.  Dave will fix all this in due time.  I hope to learn how to post pictures on this computer.  Pray for me as you all know I am not very technical.  This is my fourth attempt to post this.  The pictures were already loaded from my old computer yesterday before it said goodbye.  Well, enough of all that.  Tonight’s menu at church will be hot dogs with homemade chili, slaw, chips, salad and some kind of dessert (unknown as of yet).  Lunch today was beef roast in the crock pot, potatoes cooked in butter, home canned green beans, and watermelon for dessert.  I guess I better get started on my study for tonight.  Take care and God bless.

Cutting Wood

Here are a few pictures of the wood pile we have been working on.   During the past winter, Marvin decided to have some logging done here on the farm.  They wanted to clear out a new pasture land.  After the logging crew was finished, they piled up all the unwanted wood.  The pile is smaller now than it was at first as several truck loads have already been removed.

This picture shows better how tall the pile is.

This is the pile of locust wood that has been moved to the side.  Billy is using this as fence posts for the new pasture land.

Hubby sharpening his chain saw.  This has to be done frequently.  I wanted to show you all the wood we have cut so far but I didn’t get the picture yesterday and it is raining here this morning.   I’ll save that for another post.  Last nights low was only in the lower 40’s so hopefully we are done with chilly nights.  I have several vegetable plants I want to put out in the garden.  I’ve just been waiting for the danger of frost to pass.  I’m not very good at remembering to cover them up at night so I usually just wait.  School today as usual.  We are getting close to being finished with language.  It is always exciting to finish a book.  I was hoping to do some laundry today, however if I do, I will have to dry them inside.  I might just wait until tomorrow, not sure yet.  The pile is pretty big today, it will be even bigger tomorrow.  I better get started on my day.  Take care and God bless.
