Here are a few pictures Grace took on our Grundy trip. This picture was taken from Granny’s yard looking down on the road.
Looking down the “holler” from the yard.
Granny’s azalea bush in full bloom.
Snowball bush. We had a great visit. It is a very different type of terrain there than it is here. Lots of mountains and lots of trees. Almost everything is built on a hill. I enjoy going back to visit but I prefer living here. Take care and God bless.
I just love to see a sunrise or a sunset. I think it comes from living in the mountains of southwest virginia. Where I grew up, you never saw either one. Our house was in what we call a “holler” so the view was blocked by the mountains. The sun would hit our yard about 11:00 and go down about 3:00. I guess thats one of the reasons I love living here in Floyd. In the summer, the sun is in our yard about 6:30 and leaves about 8:00. Lots of sunshine, which I love. This morning God put on another show for us to enjoy. Thank you Lord! School today as usual. It is hard to concentrate on school now though. We feel like we’re been let out of prison. The temperatue is warm, the snow is almost gone, so of course everyone wants to be outside instead of in. We try to mix a little of both so it doesn’t get to bad. Jasper (young dog) had his first experience with a skunk last night. Not very pleasant. I tried a remedy one of the ladies from church told me about. I sprayed him with Febreeze. It actually helped quite a lot. He still smells but not as bad. I don’t have to cook tonight, we are eating at church. Roast beef and potatoes with all the trimmings. It has been a long time since we went to church on Wednesday night. When the weather is bad, they call it off. I am definitely looking forward to going tonight. The girls are involved in TeamKids there at church. They alternate Wednesdays doing childrens choir and handbells. They really enjoy the handbells. The adults are doing a Beth Moore study on the fruit of the spirit. It has been a really good study so far, however we are pretty far behind because of the bad weather we’ve had this winter. They have decided not to watch the video that goes with it, in order to hopefully get it finished in May. Guess I better get ready to go. Take care and God bless.
