Pickled Eggs

100_5601

Every year at Easter and Christmas, I make pickled eggs as a special treat for my Hubby.  He and David both like them so I will be taking them down with me for our Easter dinner.  Don’t they look so colorful in the jar?

Yesterday we had some pretty hard wind.  Our plastic is still on our greenhouse, YEAH.  I had clothes on the line drying and looked out our dining room window and a pair of Hubby’s jeans had blown off the line and into the dogwood tree.  I should have taken a picture of them hanging from the limb but I didn’t think of it in time.   Anyway, the wind is not as bad today.  Our clothes are all still on the line.  Hubby and his brother are working on the van window.  Hopefully, they will be able to fix it.  It has been more difficult than he first thought it would be.

Well, time for us to start back on school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

A Slight Breeze

We have a slight breeze here in Floyd today.  Well, okay maybe more than a slight breeze but not a hard wind.  Just perfect for drying clothes on the line.  When the wind is blowing like this, the clothes are so soft when they get dry.  We had a busy weekend but lots of fun.  The girls and I went to Sam’s Club Saturday and picked up a few things.  Before that we went to one of our local malls and walked around, just looking.  This is something we never do, so that made it special.  They have already started putting up their Christmas stuff.  It was so much fun.  Yesterday was church day.  The pastors sermon was very good.  He compared being a soldier in the Armed Forces with being a soldier in God’s army.  He did a really good job.  Last nights menu was soup, pinto beans, cornbread, tator tot casserole, cooked apples and carrot cake.  Very good.

Today we are doing Grace’s birthday party.  We are going over to our friends the Horns to celebrate.  Vicki is making the cake and I am taking some homemade chicken noodle soup.  We are all looking forward to a great day.  I know I have said it before, but we are very blessed by the Lord to have the Horns in our life.  We so appreciate their friendship.

Well, I gotta go party.  Take care and God bless.

Apple Blossoms

Our apple tree is blooming.  Isn’t it pretty!  We are not sure what type of apples these are.  The tree was here when we came.  However they are very good apples.  The tree blooms very early though and usually gets caught in the frost.  I fear this will happen this year.  Temperatures tonight will be in the upper 20’s.  We have had a very hard wind for 2 days now so of course it feels much colder.  Temperature now is about 50 with a wind chill of about 40.  YUCK!  I guess this is what we call “dogwood winter” as the dogwoods are blooming now.  Warmer temps are on the way though.  Yeah!

My bouquet of flowers for the ladies today.  I love to have fresh flowers out when they come.  Makes the room look so much more cheerful.  We all enjoyed these today.  Forsythia and spirea.  Class went very well.  Two ladies could not come.  We missed you, Wanda and Vicki.  I know I have said this many times, but this really is a good study.  She takes it nice and slow so you get to just let it all sink in.  I like that.  I better get started on supper.  Take care  and God bless.
