My girls.

Baby Sam.  I think I see a little mischievousness in his eyes, don’t you?

Little Daniel.  What could be better than sitting in Dad’s lap, doing big boy stuff (watching the clay shoot) and drinking a coke. 

I consider, after my salvation, my family to be my greatest gift from God. 

Today has been a nice day here in Floyd.  Rather warm for this time of year.  Mid 80’s.  Beautiful sunshine.  One of those days that I just love.   I have clothes on the line drying, school has went very well and my house is ”relatively” clean. (okay, so we’re still working on the house part)   Overall, just a wonderful day.  Thank you, Jesus!

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Garden

It’s been a while since I posted pictures of our garden.  It has really grown.  Everything looks to be doing really well.  You can’t tell it from the picture but the potatoes are beginning to bloom.

This is our beans and corn.  We kinda got a late start on planting them but they look strong and healthy.   Today is an absolutely beautiful day here in Floyd.  Temperatures are in the lower 70’s with a nice breeze.  It’s one of those days where it is hard to work inside.  I would much rather be outside enjoying the day.  Hopefully, later after our inside work is done.  I plan on spending some quality time with my green swing.

This is the kind of space I always dreamed of having.  It is one of the most peaceful places I know.  I so much enjoy coming and sitting down in this swing.  The Lord and I have had some of our best conversation here.   I am so thankful to my hubby for making this swing for me and for helping me keep this area beautiful.

I wanted to show you all how the sun was glistening off the rows of corn.  The corn stalks seem to be glowing.  I thought it was very pretty.  I guess I’d better get busy if I want to get my housework done today.  After all, the green swing IS calling my name.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

New Life

The field above our house has come to life.  Several new calves have been born.  They run and jump through the new grass.  They have so much fun and are such a joy to watch.  Today we worked outside most of the day,  picking up in the yard, getting the garden ready.  David, Jess, and Daniel came this afternoon.  We had hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill.  Ate them outside at the picnic table.  The sun was shining brightly.  A beautiful day.  100_2987

The girls enjoyed some fishing time.  It was one of those days that I just thank the Lord I live where I do.  Clothes blowing dry in the wind.  The birds are singing so  beautiful.  Frogs peeping.  It makes me want to do all my work outside.  I even open my window just a little bit at night so the frogs can sing me to sleep.   Wonderful time of the year in Floyd.  It’s been a really hard winter but spring in sweet.  Just like life.   Sometimes life is hard but the Lord is good and brings us through to spring.  Well, I must go.  My baby boy is here.  Take care and God bless.

Snow

Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Lots of snow.  It’s really hard to get an accurate measurement here because of the wind but we know we got at least 8-10 inches,  drifts are much deeper.  The girls have already played in the snow and we have made snow cream.  For those of you who do not know what snow cream is, you put snow in a large container, add sugar, vanilla and evaporated milk.  Stir it up with a mixer and you have snow cream.  Very good!  The amount of ingredients vary so just keep tasting until you get it right.  This is a favorite of ours whenever we get snow.  I think today is a quilting day.  You know one of those days where I just snuggle in with a project and enjoy the life the Good Lord has given me.  I guess there will be no church tomorrow.  I really miss going to church but it just can’t be helped.  The roads are too  bad to go anywhere.   Jess even got snow in N.C.  I wish I could see Daniel’s face when he gets to play in it.  They do not get snow very often there.  So it will be a treat for him.  Well, I think I hear my quilt project calling my name.  Enjoy your day and God Bless.

A Good Day

Today has been a really good day.  We had a quest speaker at church and he did such a great job.  A very humble man with a desire to preach the Word.  It was one of those days when you really didn’t want church to end.   Tonight we continue our Daniel study.  We’re almost finished with it and then we will begin Revelation.  A very hard book to understand.   Tonight’s menu  is sloppy joes, mashed potatoes, cole slaw, sweet potatoes, and who knows what else.  I am taking some hot pepper jelly with cream cheese on ritz crackers.   I know it doesn’t sound too good but it really is delicious.  Well we better get going.  God Bless.
