Around the Pond

The other day we all decided to take a walk around the pond.  It has been absolutely beautiful here in Floyd this week.  Our morning temperatures have been mid 40’s.  Amazing!!  Wonderful sleeping weather.  The days have only gotten into the mid 70’s.  I love it.  For my part, the Good Lord could just let it be this way all summer and I would be happy.

The girls had lots of fun.  They came in the house and got their wading shoes and spent lots of time wading in the pond.  Jasper even joined them for a while.  He doesn’t care much for water.  I suppose after his accident the first winter, he thinks water isn’t much fun.

Lots of cool bugs were flying around the pond.

I have no idea what they are but if you look closely you can see the tiny blue bugs that were hovering around the blade of grass.

We have so many of these birds.  I couldn’t tell for sure from the picture if they were barn swallows or tree swallows.  Both birds are abundant here.  They will fly down to the pond and touch the water.  It is amazing to watch.  Sometimes as many as 50 or more just skipping above the water.  I’m not sure if they are getting a drink or catching bugs but it is one of our favorite evening passtimes to watch them.

I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.

 

 

My Christmas Tablecloth

I love to use this quilt every year as my tablecloth at Christmas.  I did not make the quilt and to be honest I have had it so long I don’t really remember who did.  I love it though.  It looks so pretty on our table.  I took the picture of it on the floor because I wanted you all to really see it good.  I think if quilts could talk, this one would say cheerful, happy things.

Monday, I did some grocery shopping for our Christmas meal.  We visited some with the Horns which is alway fun.  Yesterday, I worked some more on my sewing machine.  I am still not successful in getting it to work properly.  I hope to work on it more today.  I have many sewing projects I want to start on.  I might have to get Hubby to look at it and see what he can do.

We are getting a drizzle of rain here this morning.  Temperatures are warm-33 degrees.  Hopefully it will just be rain and no ice.   There is a chance of snow for tomorrow and  predictions for a winter storm coming in on Friday night.  If this happens, our Christmas meal plans will have to change.  Chuck and his family are supposed to come tomorrow and Jess and her family are coming on Sunday.  It is so hard to plan things in the winter.  You never know what the weather will bring. 

We are doing “half school” today and tomorrow.  Then on Friday, we will start our Christmas break.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Flowers

These are some late blooming flowers in one of my flower beds.  Yes, I actually took these pictures this morning .  Temperatures in the low to mid 30’s.  These flowers are close to the house so they are kinda sheltered.  I certainly am glad they decided to bloom so late, adding their special color to fall.  Almost all my flowers are gone so these are especially appreciated.   I think today I will work on making Grace’s poodle shirt for our Christfest (Halloween alternative) at church.   The girls look forward to it every year.  Lots of games and of course more candy than any 2 girls could eat.   We have a new member at our Friday Ladies Bible study.  So good to have you, Vicki!    We had a surprise yesterday.  We heard a kitten meowing in one of our outbuildings.  When we went to check it out we discovered 3 new kittens,  2 gray, and 1 black with a little white on her face.   I will try to get a picture of them later today and post it so you all can see them.  They are very cute!   Of course, we never seem to have a shortage of cats here on the farm but no matter how many we have it is always exciting to the girls to find new kittens.  Hours of playtime for them.  Well it is time for me to do some work.  God Bless.
