I thought I would show you all what it looked like here last Thursday.

Can you believe it?  Snow!

We ended up with about 3 inches!  Amazing!  It was very beautiful but I am ready for sunshine instead of snow.  By Friday evening, most of it was gone except in some really shady areas.  Saturday we went down to the Farmers Market in Greensboro.   An old friend of ours, Retia, went with us. She had never been to Jess and Dave’s since they bought their home.  We stopped there first.  After coffee and a delicious pound cake Jess had made for us, we were off to the market.  Jess found some beautiful ferns for her front porch and some herbs to plant.  We had a great day with warm temperatures and sunshine.  It was a perfect day for looking around at all the flowers and plants.

We started a new bible study Sunday night at church.  It is called “Experiencing God”.  It is a really good study.  Hubby and I have done it before.  Some in our class have taken it and others have not.  I am looking forward to all the Lord has planned to show us with this study.  Every time I do it, I get something new and different from it.

This week has been absolutely beautiful here in Floyd.  Temperatures in the low 70’s.  I LOVE it!!  Hubby tillered some of the lower garden yesterday.  Today, he is working on building a raised bed.  We have wanted to do raised beds for years.  It just seems to be one of those things we talk about but never get around to doing.  That is changing today.  He already has it built and is working now on filling it with dirt.  We will see how we like using this one and then decide if we want more.

The girls and I are almost finished with school for the day.  All we lack is math.  Then we are going outside to help.  We need to get the upper garden ready for plowing.  It will soon be time to get things in the ground.  I hope to get some cabbage plants, onion sets, spinach seeds and lettuce seeds the next time we go into town.

I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

A Beautiful Sunset

For the last few days, we have been enjoying beautiful sunsets.  We thought this one was exceptionally pretty. My thanks to Grace for taking the picture.  It looked like a highway and it stretched almost all the way across the sky.  God certainly is awesome.

We have been doing the usual around here.  Cleaning, canning etc.  Tuesday evening we visited with the Horn’s.  Vicki made her delicious potato soup.  Madison made a tomato pie, with fresh tomatoes and herbs she had raised and dried herself.  It was delicious.  It tasted amazingly like pizza.  We all loved it.

Today, I am meeting Mrs. Sally in “little town”.  She has a stock pot she is going to let me borrow for making spaghetti sauce.  I think the brand name is Calphalon.  She says it is wonderful and that her sauce never sticks.  I am excited about giving it a try and grateful to her for letting us use it.  Mrs. Faye from our church will also meet us there in town.  I picked up an outdoor canner for her yesterday and she wants to get started using it as soon as possible.

Well, I thinks that’s it for now.  I have lots to get done so I better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
