Grapevine

100_9413

Our grapevine is coming along nicely.    Remember last year we cut it back too much and didn’t get not one single grape from it.  We are hoping for lots and lots of grapes this year.

We have been busy this week with school and other miscellaneous things.  Nothing too big.  We went to help Hubby yesterday.  The room he is working on needs lots of work on the floor.  It is sagging very badly.  He has to take the floor up and get under the house to jack it up.   It had little linoleum squares on it that had been put on with some kind of heavy duty glue.  We had to take the heat gun to each individual square and then use a shovel to get them up.  It took most of the day. 

We are having a little cold spell here.  We call it dogwood winter as the dogwoods are in full bloom.  We have been in the upper 20’s at night with frost.  Yesterday’s high was low 40’s with lots of wind.  Chilly but today has been nice.  Sun and temperatures in the low 60’s.  I like that much better. 

Well, that’s about all that is happening here.  I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.

Fall Colors

Here is another picture from our outing yesterday.  Such beautiful colors.  Today has been busy working on the new room.  We have the vinyl flooring down.  Now I should pause to say “where I come from”  we call this linoleum.  Here they call it vinyl flooring.  Anyway, it is down on the floor.  All the trim is cut, painted and on except for the window trim.  It is really starting to look like a room.  I will try to post a picture of it soon so you all can see our progress. 

We did not have ladies bible study today.  Two of the ladies were unable to come so we just decided to call it off.  Probably for the best, my house is a little cluttered right now.  Hopefully, soon it will all be finished and we can get everything back in order.  Today has been a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Nice temperatures, cool but not too much,  lots of sunshine.  We did have a fire all day which has felt really nice.  I cooked my first kettle of pinto beans on the wood stove today so I guess fall is officially here.  There is no better pinto beans than those cooked on a wood stove-in my opinion. 

Well, still more to get done.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.
