We awoke this morning to a wintry mix.

Not a lot going on here this week.  Grace has had a little sore throat and congestion going on this week.  Hubby has been dealing with something going on with his tummy.  Not exactly sure what.  I think a trip to the doctor might help but he thinks for sure (today) that he is doing better.  We’ll see.

Yesterday, Julie and I went to C-burg while Grace and Hubby stayed home.  I was hoping to find a few twin size flat sheets at Goodwill to use as the backing for the quilts I’m working on.  I did find one but I don’t think it will be for Sam’s quilt but hopefully it will work for one of the other ones.  We picked up a few things at Wal-Mart, paid a few bills and came on home.  I’m glad we got all that done yesterday before the storm hit.  We also downloaded sheet music for Julie.  The song is titled Hope’s Song by Rebecca St. James.  She wants to play and sing this song at church for Easter.  She’ll have to work pretty hard on it though as Easter is just around the corner.

Julie and I spotted a few of these colts foot blooming yesterday.  I took this picture from an older post of mine as we did not have the camera with us yesterday.  It is always so exciting when we see these starting to bloom.  They are (to my knowledge) our first wild flowers to bloom in spring.  YEAH!

Well, I guess that’s about it.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

Our Mantle Nativity

100_4916

This little Nativity set is the star attraction on our mantle during Christmas.  It is already sitting in its place of honor.  It has been to cold too go to the building to get out our other decorations but we did venture out to get the Nativity.  Hopefully, it will warm up some so we can get the other stuff down soon.  Very cold here last night.  Acutual temperature 7 degrees with a wind chill of about -5.  Our water is frozen.  So sad.  Hubby thought he had fixed every little crack that the wind could get into but I guess we were wrong.  Remember last year, our bathroom water was frozen for about 1 1/2 months.  We were hoping to avoid that this year.  Well, this morning all the water is frozen, nothing coming into the house anywhere.  Definitely not good.  Hubby is going to work on it this evening as soon as he gets in.  Pray it will not be too hard to get it running again.  Then I guess we will just have to keep a small trinkle running at night to keep it from freezing again.  I am so grateful I went up yesterday to the cellar and covered up our pototoes and our canned green beans with quilts.  Hopefully they are in good shape.  Last year they froze in the cellar.  I do not want a repeat of that.  The green beans are closest to the door so I guess there must be some wind that gets in at the door.  Oh well, this is all part of winter, I know.  I can’t say I like it though.

I do have good news.  A local bakery, The Bread Basket, has graciously agreed to display my aprons for sale.   I am so excited!!!!!  I took her 9 aprons this morning.  I pray they sell quickly and that perhaps I could bring her more.  This would be so much better than trying to sell them myself.   All in God’s hands. 

Well, I have things to get done-not laundry though.  Can’t do laundry without water.  Stay warm and God bless.
