Little boys playing with toys!

Big boys playing with toys!

Chuck and his kids came over Saturday.  He helped Hubby with some car maintenance.  It was a fun day.  He got here about 9:00 A.M. as he was wanting to eat breakfast with us.  We had sausage and gravy, biscuits, fresh eggs, corn, canned apples and homemade waffles.  We had a good day.

Grace was having trouble with her nose piece on her glasses so we made a trip to Rocky Mount to get it repaired.  We did some grocery shopping while there.  It ended up taking most of the day.  We came home and worked on things that needed doing.  We had planned on doing school today and then taking a break for the rest of the week.  We’ll do school tomorrow instead and then break.  I love the flexibiltiy of homeschooling.

Grace put one of our freshly butchered chickens in the crockpot today to cook while we were gone.  When we got home it smelled so good in the house.  We deboned it and make chicken and dumplings.  They are delicious!!  I think I am spoiled now to having our own chickens for meat.  We plan on making stock tonight in the crockpot from the bones.  YUMMY!

Well, I guess that’s about all that is happening here.  My girls are wanting me to play a game of cards with them.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Spirea Bush

Our spirea bush is also in full bloom.  I love spring!

Yesterday, my Grace did not feel well.  She felt worse as the day progressed.  I finally ended up taking her to Urgent Care late yesterday evening.  She has strep throat.  Not good.  We are praying for a speedy recovery and that the rest of us do not get it.

On now to more pleasant things.  We have lots of sunshine today and the forecast is for warmer temperatures.  Yesterday was a mix of rain, snow, and wind.  It was chilly all day.  We are looking forward to warmer temperatures the rest of the week.  Last nights menu was meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans and rolls.  Grace, however, did not eat very much as her throat was hurting.

I plan on only doing half school today.  Sickness and school do not go well together.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

“New” Books

Yesterday, we stopped at Goodwill while on our way to the eye doctor.  The girls found these Narnia books.  They were so happy.  It is the complete set except for book 2 “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.  We will have to be watching for it.  Grace got a good report at the eye doctor.  Her vision had improved some.  She will be picking out new glasses next week.  We have been  blessed so much with improvement in her vision.  She will probably always have to wear bifocals but she has definitely come a long way.   We are extremely grateful to God for this blessing.

Today is still chilly here with a chance of rain for this afternoon but the rest of the week is supposed to be really nice-much warmer.  We are doing school as usual.  Later we will be going into town for piano lessons.  Tonight’s menu is kielbasa, cooked cabbage, and potatoes.  I think I will make a batch of rolls to go with it.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
