I wanted to share with you all my lastest yard sale find.  I love these old books.

Grace had a mishap with her glasses and we had to go get them repaired yesterday.  A startled chicken flew up from the roost and hit her glasses.  It messed up her nose piece.  On the way to Wal-Mart I noticed a yard sale sign.  Well you know, it is so hard to pass up yard sales.  I am so glad I stopped.   I got these books for 10 cents a piece.

I just love the pictures and the stories in these old readers.  I have several of them.  Look, they even have a dictionary in the back.

I know my girls are way past these books but I still love them.

A picture just for fun.  This little lady seems to be an escape artist.  She manages to get out of the fence almost every evening.  We looked out the window the other day and she was sitting here on the bench just resting.  All our animals seem to love this bench.

Well, I better go.  Our VBS starts tonight.  Enjoy your evening and God bless.

 

What We Still Look Like

Hello everyone!  I thought I would show you all what it STILL looks like here in Floyd.

Ice still covers everything.  I was hoping to show you all how beautiful it is when the sun shines on it but none of these pictures do it justice.

We are still snuggled in and enjoying the slow pace of days with nothing major to do.  We will be starting back school next week.

I have to tell you all about all the fun we had last evening.  We opened the chickens gate to see if they would come out and explore a little.  Well, they came out just fine.  The problem was, they didn’t want to go back in.  I think they didn’t want to walk on the ice.  When it started getting dark, instead of being on the roost, they were scattered everywhere-under buildings, in the wood shed.  We had to gather them all up and put them in their house.  Needless to say, we were SO COLD!  Silly chickens, they will not have an open gate this evening.

Our actual temperature here this morning is 15 degrees.  I’m not sure what the wind chill is but I am certain it is in the single digits.  COLD!!  I am working on another afgan.  I made  Jessica and Chuck one each for Christmas but forgot to take a picture of them.  Jessica’s is purple and white-Chuck’s is green and yellow.

I hope you all have a great day.  Stay warm and God bless.
