Sunday

Hello everyone!  Definitely long time-no post.  Not sure why it has been so long.  I would say I have been busy but then we are always busy.  I guess I am in a blogging slump!  I just can’t seem to think of anything to say (I know, imagine that huh!!)  Well, anyway, today is beautiful here.  Our temperature is 55 degrees and we have lots of sunshine.  We had snow Friday about 3 in. but it is all gone now.  YEAH!  I am so done with snow and cold weather.  I am ready for picnics and hiking and fun stuff like that.

As I said I am in a blogging slump.  Sitting here typing and I just can’t come up with much to write about.  We are enjoying our new pastor.  He really has some interesting messages-gets us to really thinking about things.  School is going well.  We finished history this week, now to double up on science and get it done.

I guess I better get started on my Sunday night bible study lesson.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

I think these are such cheerful flowers.  I like their bright color.  They are among the last of the flowers to bloom in one of my flower gardens.  Fall is definitely in the air here in Floyd.  Cooler temperatures at night.  Upper 50’s lower 60’s.  We even spotted one tree that is starting to change colors.  I love fall!  Many people say summer has long lazy days.  This is usually not true for me.  Fall is more of a slow down time for us.  Most of the canning is done.  We can slow down and enjoy the cooler days.  I love it!  Of course,  I have had to slow down a little earlier than planned this year but I think I have learned a lot from this experience.  What have I learned?  I need to slow down a little, enjoy life more, laugh more, do more things with my girls.  There is much to be said for teaching my girls how to can and take care of the house but also there is much to be said for picnics under oak trees and hikes down favorite trails.  Balance-I think it is all about balance. 

Yesterday the girls and I made homemade vegetable beef soup with homemade rolls.  It is starting to feel like soup weather.  I told the girls the other day, these cooler temperatures makes me want to open up new school books.  Amazing-cooler temps does not have the same effect on them.   We wanted to make chocolate chip cookies yesterday but did not get them done.  I think that will be a project for today.  If we get to make them, I will try to post the recipe we use.  We have some corn that needs to be pulled and worked up so I guess that too will be on the list for today.  My list is not near as long as it was before the back pain.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
