Saturday

Hello, ladies.  Seems like we have been busy here for the last few days.   Friday, I worked all day (in my spare time) on aprons.  I managed to get two finished.  I took them down to the Bread Basket for selling.  She had sold all my aprons except one.  YEAH!  This month is our month to clean the church and mow the churchyard.  We went Friday evening to do this.  Grace took this picture of the sky on our way over to the church.    Hubby did the mowing and weed eating while the girls and I cleaned inside.   Our homecoming is tomorrow morning and then our revival starts tomorrow evening.   Here is a picture of the inside of our church.

Twice a year, our church sponsors a clay shoot at the Coonhunter Club here in Floyd.  Today we had about 25 shooters.    The girls and I stayed for a while and then we had to go to C-burg to buy ink.  Monday we will be starting school and I needed a few supplies.  

I guess I better get busy.  We will be having a fellowship meal following services tomorrow.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Friday Ladies Bible Study Group

This is our Friday Ladies Group.  Okay so two are looking down but it is the best we could do.  The sun was shining directly in our eyes.  The study as I have said before is really good.  We have 3 more lessons to go.  Then we are going to do I Corinthians using John MacArthur’s study book.  Today has been busy.  I made a loaf of bread, then made a batch of laundry detergent.  We are doing school and in my spare time I have hung out 4 extra large loads of laundry on the line.  Rain is supposed to come tomorrow so I wanted to get as much dried outside as I could.  We had frost this morning with temperatures about 28.  The house is just now started to warm up.  I didn’t want to build a fire because then the clothes I put on the line smell like wood smoke.  Not a bad smell-just not that fresh spring smell I wanted.  Tonights supper menu will be baked chicken, broccoli and cheese, and mashed potatoes.  And of course the  bread I made today.  Dessert will be rhubard dumplings.  Sounds pretty good.  I guess I better get started on all this food.  Hubby has just come in and seems to be VERY hungry.  Take care and God bless.

Summer Anyone?

Ok, so I’m really getting tired of cold weather and I thought I would have a little summer .  Garden growing, clothes drying on the line.  Mr. Scarecrow on duty.  That’s right.  Stop.  Take a deep breath. Imagine summer in full swing.  Not wind chills below zero, frozen water lines etc. Today has been a nice day, church was good.  The bad news was yesterday.  I went up to my cellar to get some canned goods and discovered my canned green beans had frozen.  I counted 40 quarts frozen and decided I didn’t want to count anymore.  I just shut the door and walked away.  I have never had cans to freeze before so I’m not exactly sure what to do.  I researched this and from what I have discovered,  as long as they stay sealed they should be okay.  I pray this is so.  So much work to lose them all.  Anyway,  it’s all part of life.  I’ve been busy making aprons and discloths to sell.  I have 3 aprons finished and working on the 4th one.  I have about 4 dishcloths made.  I am also working on another wall hanging.  This one will be for Julie.  Oh yea, I also have an afghan in the works.  This is all done in my spare time.  (What spare time?)  Well, it’s time for bible study.  Tonight’s menu includes brunswick stew, green beans(guess who’s bringing them) cornbread, mac & cheese and 2 different desserts, unknown at this time.  God Bless.
