Creeping Phlox

I took this picture of creeping phlox last week in Salem when Grace had her eye appointment.  Lots of things have been springing to life around here this week.  I hope to have pictures to show you later in the week. 

Yesterday was spent outside.  We got the fence posts in the ground for the new chicken lot, picked up the yard, got some mowing done and worked on a flower bed.  Then it was time to get ready for church.  Our church was having a special singing last night.  The group singing was The Hylton’s.  They were 4 generations of them singing praises to the Lord.  The youngest was about 3 and she sang “Jesus Loves Me.”  It was beautiful.  I can just imagine Jesus listening to her sing and saying oh, how I love these little ones. 

Today we have overcast skies with a light drizzle.  The temps have dropped some and the fog is moving in.  I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and God bless.

Thursday

My Grace took this picture the other evening.  The clouds were beautiful.  Thanks for the picture, Grace.  Today looks as though it will be another beautiful day here in Floyd.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing praises.  Beautiful!  I am getting ready to hang clothes on the line.  So much fun.  I also just finished making some homemade yogurt.  I have not made this in a long time.  I usually make kefir.  However I am having difficulties getting it to thicken.  I think it has something to do with temperature.  Without the fire, I don’t think it is warm enough in the house for it to set.   I had this same problem last year in the spring.  So maybe I’ll just make yogurt for a while.   Must be time for a change.  School today as usual.  Hopefully we will finish getting the garden ready to plow today.  I am really ready to play in some fresh turned dirt.  Get some early crops in the ground.  Onions, lettuce, peas, cabbage. YUM!  I don’t think I’ve told you all, but we have a mama goose setting on the island on the pond.  Much excitement.  We have never had one make a nest here before.  We are certainly looking forward to seeing babies swimming around.    We have always said when the birds were singing they were singing praises to the Lord.  On another blog, I read about listening to their praise songs.  I so much like that thought.  So it is time for me to go hang some clothes on the line and listen to some beautiful praise music.  May your day be filled with the sound of praise.  God bless.
