I wanted to share with you all my lastest yard sale find. I love these old books.
Grace had a mishap with her glasses and we had to go get them repaired yesterday. A startled chicken flew up from the roost and hit her glasses. It messed up her nose piece. On the way to Wal-Mart I noticed a yard sale sign. Well you know, it is so hard to pass up yard sales. I am so glad I stopped. I got these books for 10 cents a piece.
I just love the pictures and the stories in these old readers. I have several of them. Look, they even have a dictionary in the back.
I know my girls are way past these books but I still love them.
A picture just for fun. This little lady seems to be an escape artist. She manages to get out of the fence almost every evening. We looked out the window the other day and she was sitting here on the bench just resting. All our animals seem to love this bench.
Well, I better go. Our VBS starts tonight. Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Chuck and his kids came over Saturday. He helped Hubby with some car maintenance. It was a fun day. He got here about 9:00 A.M. as he was wanting to eat breakfast with us. We had sausage and gravy, biscuits, fresh eggs, corn, canned apples and homemade waffles. We had a good day.
Grace was having trouble with her nose piece on her glasses so we made a trip to Rocky Mount to get it repaired. We did some grocery shopping while there. It ended up taking most of the day. We came home and worked on things that needed doing. We had planned on doing school today and then taking a break for the rest of the week. We’ll do school tomorrow instead and then break. I love the flexibiltiy of homeschooling.
Grace put one of our freshly butchered chickens in the crockpot today to cook while we were gone. When we got home it smelled so good in the house. We deboned it and make chicken and dumplings. They are delicious!! I think I am spoiled now to having our own chickens for meat. We plan on making stock tonight in the crockpot from the bones. YUMMY!
Well, I guess that’s about all that is happening here. My girls are wanting me to play a game of cards with them. Enjoy your evening and God bless.
This picture was taken on the back side of the farm. If you look in the right hand corner, you will see the little white house Dave and Jess lived in for a while.
Today we have to go to Rocky Mount to get Grace’s nose piece put back on her glasses. She has not had these glasses very long. I hope this is not an indication of how they are going to hold up. Yesterday, we picked the last of our beans and got about half of them worked up. We hope to finish them today when we get back. We also pulled the last of our corn and got all of it put into the freezer. We picked about 1/2 bushel of tomatoes. I am borrowing Mrs. Sally’s kettle for this week as well. I am definitely on the lookout for one of those kettles. I really liked it. I hope to make salsa and another batch of spaghetti sauce from the tomatoes we picked yesterday.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.
