Home Place

This is a picture of our Grundy home.  The original house was built by my grandparents.  It (like most old homes) had rooms added on.  I was 12 years old when I first moved into this home and 40 when I left.  Leaving was hard.  Life changes though and we must be able to change with it.  I have so many happy memories of this place but I also have many happy memories of where I am now.  

The girls and I have been busy.  We had 23 qts. of green beans.  We finished them today.  We also put  more squash in the freezer.  We are going down to Jessica’s this evening.  Tomorrow us girls will be going blueberry picking while Dad and PawPaw watch the two boys.  After that we plan on going to Lifeway and then out to eat.  We will be coming back home tomorrow evening. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Old Books

I simply LOVE old school books.  Here are a few that I have collected over the years.  I learned to read with Dick and Jane and taught my girls with the same books.  They have such wonderful pictures.  The last picture is of two old books from my Dad’s childhood.  Inside the cover, there are the names of many of my aunts and uncles.  I suppose they just passed the books down.  Gotta love that.  We still do that here in this household.  Just pass them on.  These books have a very important place in my schoolroom/dining room, along with an old Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox.  The lunchbox is metal and still has the thermos in it.  It belonged to Jess.  Such happy memories.  100_2971

As you can tell, it was a much loved lunch box.  Lots of rain here last night.  Today has been overcast.  Temperature in the mid 40’s.  Not too bad.  Supper tonight will be pork tenderloin on the grill, fresh pineapple, home fries, home canned green beans and homemade biscuits.  For dessert we have some cinnamon rolls left over from the other day.  This will be served with cold mint tea.  Are you all hungry yet?  I am so I guess I better go get that grill going.  Take care and God bless.
