Eggs

Just look at all our little pullet eggs.  Ain’t they cute?  Notice the ameraucana one.  We were so happy to see it in the nest.  We have been busy here for the the last few days.  Thursday afternoon we went over the our pastors house to pick peaches.  I, of course, forgot my camera so no pictures of his beautiful trees.  They are all full of fruit.  Friday and today was spent working up the peaches we got.  We ended up with 15 qts canned, 3 qts frozen, and 10 1/2 gals of peach juice.  YEAH!  Such a blessing.

We have been HOT here.  Not as hot as some of you all but hot for us.  Upper 90’s for the actual temperature.  I’m not sure what it is with the humidity, feels like, at least, 110 degrees (to me).

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

A Slight Breeze

We have a slight breeze here in Floyd today.  Well, okay maybe more than a slight breeze but not a hard wind.  Just perfect for drying clothes on the line.  When the wind is blowing like this, the clothes are so soft when they get dry.  We had a busy weekend but lots of fun.  The girls and I went to Sam’s Club Saturday and picked up a few things.  Before that we went to one of our local malls and walked around, just looking.  This is something we never do, so that made it special.  They have already started putting up their Christmas stuff.  It was so much fun.  Yesterday was church day.  The pastors sermon was very good.  He compared being a soldier in the Armed Forces with being a soldier in God’s army.  He did a really good job.  Last nights menu was soup, pinto beans, cornbread, tator tot casserole, cooked apples and carrot cake.  Very good.

Today we are doing Grace’s birthday party.  We are going over to our friends the Horns to celebrate.  Vicki is making the cake and I am taking some homemade chicken noodle soup.  We are all looking forward to a great day.  I know I have said it before, but we are very blessed by the Lord to have the Horns in our life.  We so appreciate their friendship.

Well, I gotta go party.  Take care and God bless.

Pretty Blue Flowers

This pretty little stream runs through one of the fields below our house.  A few blue flowers are still holding on.  Yesterday was  a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Today however we may get some rain.  Pretty windy and overcast.  The pastors sermon yesterday was on David and Goliath and facing the giants in our own life.  It was an excellent sermon.   Last nights menu was mostly leftovers from the “critter chompin”.  We had a cornbeard casserole, potato cakes, green beans, baked beans, fresh homemade bread, chips and dip, and cake.  We always eat sooooo good!

Today, hopefully, we will get some more of our apples worked up, along with school.   I am doing laundry but it will have to be dried inside-so sad.  I really miss hanging clothes outside.  I think they smell so good.  Well, I better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Peaceful Scene

We did not get to have our breakfast picnic yesterday morning at the park.   Weather was too bad.  VERY foggy here.   Most people would not have been able to find the park .  Everything is wet, wet, wet.   We did move it to the church, however, so we still had breakfast.  Just not outside like originally planned.  Lots of good food though.  The pastors sermon was on the Lord’s Prayer.  It was a very good message.

I have been told this strange looking flower is called a Naked Lady.  The name suits it.  There are no leaves on it what so ever.  Just a tall stem and then the flower.  They have filled out more since I took this picture however I could not get a new picture.  It is too foggy and dreary today.  The girls and I will be busy making more salsa.  I did not like the recipe in the Ball canning book as much as I like my old recipe.  It was given to me by a Mennonite friend, Judy.  So today we are making her recipe.  Much better.  Temperatures have been cooler here.  Low’s in the upper 50’s, high’s in the low to mid 60’s.  Wet, foggy.  Nice days for doing work inside or just curling up with a good book.  I think I’ll try to work both of these activities in today.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
