Naked Lady

I’m sure everyone is thinking what a strange name for a post but it really is the name of the flower.  For the last few years we have had these flowers come up in our yard.  They are a gift from God.  We love them.  I guess they are called Naked Ladies because they have no leaves.  They just grow up straight and have a beautiful flower on them.  We had 2 others but something broke them before they got to bloom.  (probably small 4 legged creatures-kitties). 

This morning’s temperature was 56 when we got up!  I think it definitely is starting to feel like fall.  I really enjoy all the seasons but I think fall is my favorite.  (Even if it does mean time to cut wood).  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Baby Sam.  I think I see a little mischievousness in his eyes, don’t you?

Little Daniel.  What could be better than sitting in Dad’s lap, doing big boy stuff (watching the clay shoot) and drinking a coke. 

I consider, after my salvation, my family to be my greatest gift from God. 

Today has been a nice day here in Floyd.  Rather warm for this time of year.  Mid 80’s.  Beautiful sunshine.  One of those days that I just love.   I have clothes on the line drying, school has went very well and my house is ”relatively” clean. (okay, so we’re still working on the house part)   Overall, just a wonderful day.  Thank you, Jesus!

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin growing in our garden100_2066

This year as a gift from God we have pumpkins.  Quite a lot of pumpkins.  We have decided to harvest them a little early as bugs have decided they like them too.    The pie was made completely from scratch as you probably can tell.  The crust is a very simple recipe that doesn’t require being rolled out.  I like things simple.  The filling recipe came from an old lady at a farmers market we visited years ago.   If anyone is interested in these recipes let me know and I will post them.  Today has been a good day.  The girls played piano at church today.  Grace played the special and Julie played the congregational.  Big step for Julie-playing while others sing with her.  They both did great.  When I hear them play like that I think all that money and time for lessons was REALLY worth it.   It’s almost time to leave for Sunday Night Bible Study at church.  We are using John MacArthur’s study on the book of Daniel.  It has been a very interesting study so far.  The pie is for church tonight.  After bible study we always eat(Its the Baptist way)  Tonight we will be having a feast.  Pinto beans, cornbread, onions, tomatoes, hot dogs, cole slaw, and pie.  Who could ask for more.  As I tell my oldest daughter, we really do study, the food is just extra.  Gotta go and God Bless.
