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.

This picture was taken on the back side of the farm.  If you look in the right hand corner, you will see the little white house Dave and Jess lived in for a while.

Today we have to go to Rocky Mount to get Grace’s nose piece put back on her glasses.  She has not had these glasses very long.  I hope this is not an indication of how they are going to hold up.   Yesterday, we picked the last of our beans and got about half of them worked up.  We hope to finish them today when we get back.  We also pulled the last of our corn and got all of it put into the freezer.  We picked about 1/2 bushel of tomatoes.  I am borrowing Mrs. Sally’s kettle for this week as well.  I am definitely on the lookout for one of those kettles.  I really liked it.    I hope to make salsa and another batch of spaghetti sauce from the tomatoes we picked yesterday.

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

 

Thursday

Hello Ladies, it has been another busy week for us.  Monday we went with Hubby to the job site.  This is a picture of one of the rooms he is working on.  He has gutted all the upstairs and  Monday we put the new subflooring down in 2 of the rooms.

He put these on the rafters upstairs to give them extra support.  This is a very old house (over 100 years old).  He will be running new electrical throughout the house, hanging sheetrock, lots of updates.  We are VERY thankful to the Lord for this job.  It is the biggest job he has had in several years.

We took our school books and when the girls had finished with school they wanted to go exploring.  

Then on Tuesday, Grace had an eye doctor appointment in Salem.  This usually takes all day.  It takes about an hour to get there from our home.  Wednesday, we did school in the morning and then went to help Hubby again.  Today, we went back to Salem to pick up Grace’s eye glasses prescription and then made a trip to Rocky Mount Wal-Mart to get the prescription filled.  Tomorrow we are going down to Jessica’s.  A week spent on the road. 

It has been warm here this week.  A beautiful week for being outside.  We slept last night with our bedroom window open a little.  I love falling asleep listening to the frogs.  We are getting rain now.  The rain and the warm temperatures will get everything blooming and greening up.  So exciting!  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

New Ladies Study

This is the new Friday Ladies Study.  I think it will be really good.  We have done one by this lady before.  The study of Ruth.  It was a really good so hopefully this one will be also.  I love starting new studies-so exciting.

We are getting some rain today with high winds.  I hung the clothes on the line outside but we had to hurry out and get them when the rain started.  They got about half way dry though before that happened.  Temperature is extremely warm for us, 57 degrees.  I love warmer temps.  Everything is starting to get green already.  We traveled to a little town close by Saturday, Rocky Mount.  On the way we saw some forsynthias blooming and a few Easter Lillies.  We also saw fields that were really green.  Very exciting. 

Lunchbreak is almost over and I haven’t even ate yet.  I better get off this computer and get busy eating.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
