Here are a few more pictures from our trip Sunday.  This little waterfall was very pretty.

See all the cracks in the rocks.

And last, just a little stream to listen to.  So relaxing.

The girls and I went to Roanoke yesterday.  They had a dentist appointment.  After the appointment, we did a few things they enjoy doing.  We went to Books-A-Million, which is one of their favorite places to go.  We went to Sam’s Club to pick up a few things we needed.  We then walked around a little bit in the mall.  Joann’s Fabric had fleece on sale so we wanted to go by there.  Grace will be making a top with it for her next sewing project with Mrs. Sally.  We discovered that Joann’s was no longer there.  We were very disappointed.  We wanted to stop at Fresh Market to get some pumpkin spice coffee.  It is a specialty coffee they only have in the fall.  Well, we were pulling into the shopping center and one of the girls said, “Mom, look, there’s Joann’s.”  Yea!  So, Grace got her fleece and Mom got her coffee.  Grace chose a red with white snowflakes on it.  I think it will look very good.

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

Dreaming of Summer

I’ve probably posted this picture before, but I thought we might all need a little color today.  The Butterfly bush and the Rose of Sharon are always full of brillant color.  The rocks came from over the hill on the farm.  I got Marvin to bring them over on the tractor.  He said this was a first for him, usually people want to get the rocks out of their yard not put them in.  I think however it adds to the charm.  Today temperatures will probably be in the upper 20’s.  They say a chance of wintry mix for Friday.  February is almost here though.  Somehow in my mind, in February, my thoughts turn to spring, gardening, flowers, sunshine.   Winter,however, does allow more time for things like sewing, quilting, crocheting.  I am almost finished with Julie’s quilted wall hanging.  I will post a picture of it when I’m finished.  I attempted to make homemade hamburger buns yesterday.  I do not own a hamburger bun pan so I thought I might could put them in my cast iron biscuit pan.  Not a good idea.  The tasted good, however, they looked like jumbo muffins.  We ate them last night covered with cooked deer and gravy and mashed potatoes.  No one seemed to mind how they looked.  I don’t like to give up though so I will try another approach next time.  Well, better get started on school.  God Bless.
