Monday

Hello everyone!  Seems like time goes by so quickly.  I wanted to give you all an update on Hubby.  He is doing some better.  We did go to the doctor on Thursday.  They did some blood work and we are waiting on the results.

We had a very busy but great weekend.  Chuck and his family came and spent Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday with us.  Irma and her kids were gone to N.C. to see her family.    Her dad has been diagnosed with cancer.  Anyway, Chuck and kids went with us to church on Sunday.  We had a really good crowd at church.  Several visitors, which is very unusual for us.

Today was school as usual.  I had hoped to work on Sam’s quilt but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  Probably won’t happen today.  I have all the squares sewn together now and am ready to start putting it all together.  I think it looks pretty good.  I will take a picture and show you all when it is finished.  I gave Alexius her quilt this weekend.  She slept under it Saturday night.  When they were leaving Sunday evening, she forgot to carry out her overnight bag.  Chuck carried it out for her.  He asked her if she had forgotten anything.  She said, “No, I got my quilt.”  She wanted to make sure she didn’t forget it.

We have been cold here today.  Morning wind chill temperature was zero when we got up. We did have sunshine though but it still has been cold all day.  I think I am ready for warmer temperatures.  I got a new seed book in the mail today which we have already looked through.  Looking at all that beautiful produce always gives me the fever to go play in the dirt.  Well, it won’t be too much longer (I hope).

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

 

How Many Snows?

There is an old saying that if you count the number of fogs you have in August, that’s how many snows you will have that winter.

I’m not sure how true that is but so far this month we had have 3 mornings with fog.

The geese don’t seem to mind though.

The girls and I picked a bushel of corn this morning.  We put 40 ears in the freezer, keep out enough for supper, and had a few bags of corn cut off the cob for the freezer.  We also picked almost 1/2 bushel of tomatoes.  We will be using these to make spaghetti sauce one day this week.  I am also trying a recipe for sourdough bread using my bread machine to work the dough.  I’ll let you all know how it turned out.

We had a great weekend with the grandkids.  Chuck brought these scooters for everyone to ride.

And a toy for him to play with.

We then went for a ride in the bumpy truck.  Irma had never ridden in the back of a truck before. (I know, I just couldn’t believe it either).  Sunday we had our church breakfast at Smart View Park.  David and Jess came up.  They had Katie dressed in the little dress and hat the girls had made her.  She looked so cute in it.  Later in the afternoon, we all went for another ride in the bumpy truck.  Daniel so loves riding in “his” bumpy truck.

Well, that’s about it for now.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
