An Unusual Visitor

8541195283_40e04559e2_z

Hello ladies!  I just wanted to thank all of you for your prayers.  The visit at the doctor today went well.  The doctor is treating him for a kidney infection which she thinks is definitely part of his problem.  She also wants him to come back in 3 weeks for more blood work.  There is a possibility he is a diabetic.  Thank you all again for your prayers.

I also wanted to show you these pictures of a visitor we had at the pond the other day.  Our pond has been seeing LOTS of activity.  The morning this guy came in we had about 60 geese and several ducks there.  They are lots of fun to watch.

I have no idea what type of goose this is, maybe he is a domestic breed.  I don’t know but he sure did stick out from the rest.   We also had a visit from these quys.

There were 2 males and one female.  The males were so aggressive.  They fought most of the day.  I’m not sure which one ended up being the victor but today when the ducks came back there was only one male and one female.  I guess one of the males finally gave up.

I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.

Friday

Hello everyone!  Today we have beautiful sunshine with temperatures in the low 30’s.  We are going to the Horn’s after school.  I am making  a simple vanilla cake with caramel icing.  I got the recipe from Mrs. Faye at http://theblessedhearth.blogspot.com/  I think it looks really good and can’t wait to try it.

We have a doctor’s appointment on Monday at 9:45 to go over the results of the blood work.  I would appreciate your prayers concerning this.

Well, that’s it.  Just a quick little post.  I have cake to bake.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

 

Wednesday

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a good day.  Things are kinda slow here.  Hubby is still sick-YUCK!  He has a doctor’s appointment tomorrow.  I would appreciate your prayers for a healing for him.  He does feel better today than he has in 2 weeks.  I can see an improvement every day just not as fast as we would like.

Yesterday another ice storm came through.  Everything was covered with ice.  This morning though all is gone.  YEAH!  We have some sun with temperatures in the upper 30’s.  We are supposed to get more snow come through Thursday and Friday.  I know, though, spring is just around the corner.  The birds are singing so pretty and the air just has a different feel to it.

Not much else going on here.  School, laundry, housework.  You know, just the usual stuff.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Pray for Sam

You  all are looking at one sick little boy.  Please pray for him.  Jess took him Tuesday to the ER and they said he had bronchitis.  They gave him a breathing treatment and a steroid shot.  Last night he got worse.  She called us at 3:30 this morning to be in prayer for him.  He was running a high fever and nothing she did seemed to help.  Anyway, after a long night, she took him back to the doctor this morning.  He now has pneumonia.  They are given him a breathing machine to take home.  She is supposed to use it every 6 hrs, also giving him a very strong antibiotic.  The doctor told her to go to their local health food store and get buckwheat honey.  Buckwheat honey has medicinal properties that will help with all his coughing.  I appreciate all your prayers.  Thank you and God bless.

New Project

Here is a picture of my lastest project.  This picture is of one I did several years ago.  Grace has requested one so I am working on hers now.  I have finished the pink and blue rows and will be starting on the red.  I also have found a new favorite way of making popcorn.  I am not found of microwave popcorn.  It always leaves a yucky taste in my mouth.  I have been making this recipe for microwave kettle corn and we all love it.  You can make it sweet like the recipe says or just leave out the sugar and make regular popcorn.

Much has been going on here for the last week.  That’s one reason why I haven’t made a post in a while.  First off, last week I threw my back out.  I used my mom’s old cane to walk around the last part of the week.  I am so thankful that I do not have chronic back problems.  It was intensely painful.  Then on Saturday we went down to Jessica’s for a pumpkin carving day.  We have never carved pumpkins before.  It was a lot of fun.

Jess made this cheesecake.  It was the first cheesecake she had made.  It was very good.

Everyone had a great time.

Then Saturday evening we went to the “Critter Chompin”.  It is a wild game banquet that our church sponsors.  We do door prizes and I won a new bible “The Story”.  Have any of you ever heard of it?  It is supposed to be the bible but told in a story form   Later on that night though we had some bad news.  Hubby Dad had been taken to Pikeville hospital with a heart attack.  We went down to see him on Monday-11 hrs driving.  Hard day in MANY ways.  He is on a ventilator and unable to breathe on his own.  Later in the week, he had to undergo surgery for a preforated bowel.  Today he is still in extremely critical condition.  I would ask if anyone feels led to pray, we would certainly appreciate your prayers.  He is 81 years old, a Christian man, and wasn’t in very good health before all this happened.  Hubby and I are praying for God’s will to be done.

Well, that’s about it.  I will try to keep everyone posted.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello ladies, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while.  For some reason, things have been busy around here and it’s been difficult for me to make a post.  Grace is feeling better and I thank you all for your prayers for her.  So far, we have been blessed that no one else has gotten sick.

We are on Thanksgiving break from school.  The girls are very happy.  Today is planned out as just a fun day.  We will watch a movie, The Prince of Egypt, also play a few games, and listen to Christmas music.   I will also be busy baking today.  We are doing Thanksgiving at Jessica’s.  Everyone is bringing something.  I am to bring the rolls and the ingredients for punch.  The punch we all love is called Angel Punch.  Jessica’s grandmother, Marie would always make this punch at Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We really like it.

My bread machine just beeped so it is time to start shaping the rolls.  I better get busy.  I pray you all have a safe and happy thanksgiving.  God bless.

 

The Pond

I thought I would show you all a few different views of our pond.  You have seen this view many times.

I took this picture from the tractor road looking toward the house.

We had a little wind yesterday, so I thought I would show you the waves on the pond.  So relaxing.

Today has been very nice here.  Our temperature is mid 60’s with a slight breeze.  We did school and worked on some more apple juice.  Not a lot going on.  Jess had a doctor’s appointment yesterday.  All is going along nicely.  She has to go back Monday(if not before!)  Please continue to pray for her and Katie.  Your prayers are so appreciated. 

It is getting time for me to start supper.  Tonight we will be having canned beef with noodles, green beans, corn and pone bread.  Dessert will be fresh made applesauce.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Goldfinch

These beautiful yellow birds are one of my favorites.  For years, I tried to get them to come into my feeders with no success.  I bought the expensive thistle seeds that they are supposed to love.  They were not interested.  Then David’s grandmother, Doris, told me to buy the black oil sunflower seeds.  Not to buy the wild bird mix, just the sunflower seeds.  That was several years ago and she was absolutely right.  We get all kinds of birds at our feeders and all I ever use is the sunflower seeds.  Today was the first spotting of the goldfinch.  Isn’t he breathtaking?  I love the cheerful yellow of his feathers and of course their song is so pretty.  We have had several male and females at the feeders all day.  If you look closely you can see the sunflower seed in his mouth. 

Grace is feeling some better and so far she is the only one sick.  Thank you all for your prayers.  Today our thermometer says 70 degrees!!!!  I am so happy!  After school, we plan on cleaning the inside of the car before taters start growing in there.  Just kidding, its not that bad but it does need a good cleaning. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Ain’t he handsome!  Everything is going very well.  They both came home this afternoon.  So much different than with Daniel.  I so thank you all for your prayers and I thank God for all His blessings on us.100_3684

He looks a little small in Dave’s hands but he really is pretty good size.  He seems to have taken to food like a true champion.

This is Jessica, just a few hours after delivery.  I told her she could do an advertisement for the makeup she is wearing.  The makeup she is wearing is the same makeup she put on the evening before when they left the house, about 18 hours before.  Amazing.  I haven’t been home long so there is much to do.  Just wanted to show him off a little.  Take care and God bless.
