Hi everyone. I’m sorry about no pictures lately but I have been having trouble with my computer. Hopefully all is fixed now. Saturday, Dave, Jess and kids came up for a visit. Dave and Hubby went to Pastor Tom’s shoot. They had a great time. Then on Saturday afternoon, Chuck and his kids came over too. I was one happy mawmaw. All my grandbabies here at one time. I hope this becomes a habit. We all went to cut wood. I so wish I had taken my camera. It was so cute seeing them all carrying wood to load in the truck. Everyone went. We even had Katie and Sam in the stroller, which did not make Sam happy. He kept saying, “I wanna help PawPaw too.” We thought Sam might be a little too much “help.”
We had a great supper of pork, pintos, mashed potatoes, rolls, peaches and pears. After cutting, loading and unloading two truck loads of wood, everyone was hungry. As they were leaving, I gave them all an apple for the road. Alexius was getting in the car and got her finger shut in the car door. Chuck asked her how she managed to do that and she said, “I was trying to hold my apple and I wanted to give MawMaw another hug”. I felt so sorry for her.
I have been helping Hubby all this week with a bathroom remodel. We finished it today. Tomorrow, he will start installing the cabinets at the old farmhouse he has been working on. We plan on going with the Horn’s this Saturday to Grayson Highlands for their fall festival. We are looking forward to it. It sounds like lots of fun. Well, I think that’s about all that is happening around here. I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
We went down to Jessica’s today and I finally got a few pictures to show you all-thanks to Grace.
Sam was saying “cheese”.
Miss Katie. Hasn’t she grown? She had a well visit check up today and she weighed 15 lb.
We went to work with Hubby yesterday. I will try to get some pictures of his progress next time we go. Tomorrow after school, we will be going to get Grace’s new glasses. I am so glad. For those of you who do not know, Grace has worn glasses since before she was a year old. Last year, when she got a new prescription, I noticed she was wearing them down quite far on her nose. I questioned her and she said they hurt her eyes if she wore them up farther. I should have taken her back but to be honest I guess I thought she had just got in the habit of wearing them down on her nose. WRONG! They had put her bifocal up way too high in the glasses. So I know she will be so glad to get her new ones.
We had a tremendous amount of rain over the weekend. Lots of areas close by had large amounts of hail-3 to 6 in. I’m very thankful we didn’t have any. Temperatures dropped considerably after the hail. This morning it was 28 degrees with a heavy frost. I think I will have to build a fire this evening. It is fairly chilly inside the house.
I’m not sure if this worked or not. I was hoping to show you all a picture of the hail at the shooting range nearby. This is where Hubby and others from church go to shoot clays.
I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
I thought the pond looked very pretty this morning. The sun was shining and the water looks beautiful. We need to enjoy this sunshine while we can. Weather reports are calling for a winter storm tomorrow with significant amount of accumulation. The girls are excited about this. Sledding! Prayerfully we will get to meet tomorrow for Ladies Study. We are going to meet earlier in the day to avoid anyone getting caught in the snow. In the 6 years we have been doing this study, I don’t think it has ever been this long since we met. I counted it up yesterday. This Friday will make 7 weeks. No wonder I miss those ladies. Today will be filled with the usual things. School, house cleaning, cooking, eating. Enjoying the love of family. I pray I never take the little things for granted. They are all gifts from God. Feel free to sit on my porch for a while. Bring a cup of coffe or tea and enjoy the view. Warning though, it can become habit forming. God Bless.
