Our Visit With The Horn’s

We had a great visit with the Horn’s yesterday.  We were celebrating Mckenzie’s birthday.  They had the table decorated so pretty and cheerful.

Best of friends!

While the kids played, Vicki showed me how to make a blue jean skirt out of old blue jeans.  I think it turned out really nice.

I hope you all have a great evening.  Supper tonight is pork tenderloin roast, fried potatoes, corn and fresh baked rolls.  God bless.

Country Living

These are just a few pictures I took yesterday on our way into town.  This road runs alongside the Parkway for a while.  Then branches off into other roads.  It is one of the many roads we can take to get to town.  I thought you all might enjoy seeing it.

On the side of this road, fall flowers are already beginning to bloom.  Joe Pie and Goldenrod.

In about another month, corn cutting will begin.  This hill will have lots of activity.  These are just a few things I am blessed to enjoy every day.  Sometimes the beauty of this place I live overwhelms me.  I haven’t lived very many places in my life but I do know this place I live now is very beautiful. 

The girls and I had fun yesterday.  We ran some errands, went to the Salvation Army and Goodwill, Wal-Mart of course.  I found Hubby a nice church outfit at the Salvation Army and a tie to match at Goodwill.  He normally doesn’t wear a tie but now that he is a deacon, they have to wear a tie on the day we do the Lord’s Supper.  We also found Grace a skirt and a top to match and both girls got a swim suit.  They did not have one and they hope to get to swim over the weekend at David’s mom’s pool.  We are going down this evening.  She has some more apples that are ripe and some pears. 

Today is Ladie’s Bible Study.  We are still doing it at Barbara’s house, probably all this month.  However today is starting out nice and cool so we might could have done it here.  Oh well.  We’ll just stick to our original plan.  I have dessert this week and I am taking a peach pie I made.  The girls are going to play at the Horn’s while I am doing bible study.  They are very excited.  It will be a fun day for everyone.  Vicki and I will visit when I come to pick the girls up.  I’m planning on surprising her with a new type of tea for us to share.  I guess though if she reads this before I get there it won’t be a surprise. 

Well, I gotta go.  There’s work to do.  We want to be ready to leave when Hubby comes in this evening.  Gotta go get me some MawMaw time.  Take care and God bless.

Pioneer Lady

This is my friend Barbara.  No, she is not a real pioneer lady.   She is one of our Friday Ladies Study group.  She needed an outfit for a Red Hat function and this is what we come up with.  She looks so good!  I made the skirt and the apron for her.  She got the bonnet at Schoolhouse Fabrics here in Floyd.  I had so much fun making the apron.  I have never attempted an apron this this before.  It was challenging for me but I so enjoyed doing it.  I think I will make one for myself, maybe even the girls.  We think this would be an excellent costume for Christfest (halloween alternative) at church.  The sun is trying to shine here but the clouds seem to be winning the contest right now.  Hopefully it will be warmer today.  School as usual.  We are almost finished with spelling, only two more word lists.  This is when it starts getting exciting again.  When you can see the end in sight.  I have to make pickled eggs today.  My hubby loves pickled eggs.  I make  some every year at Easter and Christmas and sometimes in between.   I will try to document the process and post on it tomorrow.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
