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.

 

 

Remember This

You all remember this little dress.  I got it at Goodwill before we even knew what Jess was going to have.  Well, this weekend when we went down for our Christmas get together, Jess had dressed her in it.  She looked darling!

It amazes me every time I see her how much she has grown.  The boys were too busy for me to get a picture of them.  Maybe next time.  We had a great visit with lots of good food. 

Yesterday I put a deer roast on in the crockpot before we left for church.  Pastor Tom’s message was very good.  He preached from Isaiah 40:3-5.  We had deer roast, french fries, green beans and homemade rolls for “lupper” with homemade candy for dessert.  Then we just chilled for the rest of the day.  Our church was going caroling and giving out fruit baskets last night.  However, Julie is suffering from a head cold, so we did not go. 

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

Surprise!

Yesterday, we went down to watch the boys while Jess went for her ultrasound.  This time the baby was not shy.  Jess will  be having a little girl in  November.  All seems healthy which of course is the most important thing.  About 2 months ago, while in Goodwill, I found this darling little dress.  I thought it was so cute  I just had to buy  it.  You know,  just in case it was a girl.  I figured I could always give it as a gift to someone.  

We had quite a lot of rain last night and today has been alternately overcast and then sun.  I have clothes on the line hoping to get them dry.  It is very humid here with a temperature of 90 but we do still have a slight breeze. 

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