Goslings

I thought I would show you all how big these goslings are.  It always amazes me how fast they grow.  They are however ravenous eaters.  We also have ducklings (we think).  She hatched them off and took them up into the field.  We have not seen them since.  Mama  and Papa Duck are still around though so we are confident the ducklings are too.  Mama is just keeping them well hidden.

I forgot to mention in yesterdays post about the chick house, all the planks and the door are from the old farmhouse we are working on.  He said we could have all the old wood.  We have been thinking of ways to reuse it.  I think some of it will go to box in the remainder of our back porch.  Today is a nice day here in Floyd.  Temperature is 66 degrees.  We have had some sun but it is overcast now and I think rain is coming. 

Tonights menu at church is kraut and weiners, pinto beans, cornbread, cole slaw and strawberry rhubarb pie. (Thats just what I know about).  For a class of 10-12 people, we sure do eat good.   Time for me to start getting everything ready.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Enjoyment

Time to enjoy some of the fruits of our labor.  Our first zucchini, our first squash, and our first peas.  Delicious!! I think it is so exciting when the garden first starts coming in.   I combined all these together with a few other ingredients and had a wonderful stir fry for supper last night.  I am eating the remainder of it for lunch today.  Today is ladies bible study day.  We are on our third lesson.  It is about being a true servant of God and how we can encourage our church leaders.  I think it is a very interesting study.  Many times in churches today, the members can’t encourage their leaders because they are too busy criticizing them.  This lesson shows us ways to avoid that trap.  The girls and I cleaned house yesterday, found some new kittens (which are adorable) and in general just enjoyed the day.  Dale and his mom came by for a visit and to pick up his wood splitter.  They came right when I was taking some homemade rolls out of the oven.  It was so much fun to be able to share them.  Hot and buttery.  YUM!  Food is so good when it’s shared.

Can you believe this is the baby geese?  They are almost as big as mama and papa.  It certainly has been entertaining to watch them grow.  This morning as Hubby and I enjoyed our morning coffee together, there were lots of wildlife activity  here on the farm.  The geese were playing at the pond,  a deer was grazing in the field straight in front of us, and a coyote was passing through on the ridge to our right.  Some mornings we don’t see anything but cows and birds.  Other times there are lots to watch.  I so enjoy our morning time together.  We think its worth getting up a little earlier for.  The ladies will soon be here so I guess I better get ready.  We are going to Jessica’s tomorrow.  PawPaw has yet to see his new grandson.  Take care and God bless.
