Hello everyone!  I thought I would share a few sunrise pictures from yesterday morning.  It was a beautiful sky.

Saturday was very cold here.  We ended up not doing much outside as it was just too cold.  Sunday was cold in the morning but warmed up nicely as the day went on.   A good thing too as it was parade day here in Floyd.  We LOVE our Christmas parade.  It is always so much fun.  Pastor Tom and Mrs. Sally came home with us after church.  We had taco soup and applesauce for lunch.  Then we left for the parade.  Our church did a float this year for the first time.  Julie, Grace and several others walked behind the float and gave out candy.  It was a lot of fun.

In this picture is Pastor Tom, Mrs. Sally, myself, Julie and Grace.  Our float was one of the earlier ones, so everyone got to watch the remainder of the parade.

We are getting back into our routine today after a week  break from school.  We are working on science now.  We have already finished bible and history.   It promises to be a nice day here.  It has warmed up already.   Our temperature is upper 40’s with lots of sunshine.

Well, I better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

Another Beautiful Sunrise

Hubby and I were drinking our morning cup of coffee together on the glassed in porch and the Lord gave us the beautiful sunrise to enjoy.  God is so good!  We are still cold here.  Temperatures in the mid to upper 20’s with wind chills in the teens.  YUCK!  I am not ready for temps this cold but the Lord knows what He is doing.  Not much else going on here.  Just staying warm, working on school and doing normal stuff.

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

Sunrise, Geese and Jasper

Not much going on here this morning.  Grace is practicing piano and Julie has already practiced.  Then we will do the regular morning chores of sweeping, shaking rugs, etc.  Then time for school.

It is a beautiful day here.  Lots of sunshine.  We were a little cool last night-mid 30’s.  I will probably have to build a fire by this evening.  It is chilly in the house-62 degrees-but I am hoping it warms up in here as the day goes by.  I have clothes in the washer ready to go on the line to dry.

I took this picture of Jasper this morning as he was on duty.  There are calves that get out continuously.  Jasper takes his duty very seriously.  He makes sure they know their boundaries.  He does not allow them in the yard.  He has learned well this summer.  I think he will be a very good farm dog.

Well, Grace is almost done practicing so I better get busy.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

A Beautiful Sunrise

Hubby took this picture for me this morning.  I thought you all might like it.  It was very beautiful.  Today has been a gorgeous day here in Floyd.  Temperatures have been in the low 50’s.  Lots of sunshine!!  Amazing.  Need I say, I LOVE it.

Not a lot going on here other than just enjoying this warm weather.  I have finished another apron and have started another one.   I need to get a few supplies though before I do any more.  I plan on going into our little town tomorrow.  I want to go to Schoolhouse Fabrics.  I think I have mentioned it before.  It is an old 3 story school house that has been converted into a fabric store.  3 levels of material and any thing else a person might need for sewing. 

Tonight’s supper is chicken alfredo with homemade garlic breadsticks.  We are having homemade cinnamon rolls for dessert, thanks for the idea , Cary Ann.   I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Gingerbread Coffee Creamer

Today I tried a new recipe.  Gingerbread coffee creamer.    I got the recipe from food.com I added 1 cup powdered milk to the recipe, as I like mine extra creamy. 

  • 2 cups non-dairy powdered coffee creamer or 2 cups powdered nonfat dry creamer or 2 cups powdered coffee creamer
  • 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend or 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon clove

Directions:

    1. Blend well in a blender.
 
    You will see specks of the spice in the mixture.  I have already tried this recipe and I thought it turned out great.  I think I really like making all these flavored coffee creamer.
    I will leave you all with another fall picture.

And a sunrise picture Grace took this morning.    Enjoy your day and God bless.

Wednesday

I hope you all are not tired of sunrise pictures.  I just love a beautiful sunrise and we get some amazing ones here.   I thought this one this morning was especially beautiful. 

Today while the girls worked on school, I worked on the dreaded refrigerators.  We have two refrigerators here in the house.  One is a side by side and the other is just a regular refrigerator with the freezer on top.   So many little cups of this and cups of that had been stored over the holidays.  It was getting impossible to find space to put new cups of this and that.  I decided enough was enough.  I cleaned both of them out completely, removed the shelves and washed them.  I stood back and looked at them and was amazed at how much better they looked.  Empty but better.  So good that I decided to do the freezers too.  Amazing!  I actually have space in the fridges and the freezers now.   I thought I would never get all those containers washed.  I decided since the girls were working so hard on school, I would let them out of that chore today.  Thats one job I am glad to have done.

While we were inside working on this Hubby was busy splitting wood. (Dave, he has your splitting maul sharpened and ready for you!)  After we were finished inside, we went out and helped him move all the split wood inside the wood building.  It was a fairly nice day for working outside.  Temperature was around 30 degrees with occasional sunshine. 

Enjoy your evening and God bless.

A New Day

We were blessed with a beautiful sunrise this morning.  Thank you, Lord!  I just love sunrises and sunsets.  They make me feel so special.

  We ended up getting some sleet and ice on top of the snow the other day.  Hopefully, it will start to melt today.   I have some errands I want to get done tomorrow.   We have warmed up nicely-30 degrees.  So much better than the other day.  Hubby and I walked down to the barn yesterday to get our milk.  Old Red (our truck) wouldn’t start and we thought the road was way to slick for the van.  It was a nice walk though.  I really enjoyed it.  I so much prefer walking outside to exercising inside.

I think I’ll get upstairs and do some sewing.  I have a few projects I want to get done before Christmas.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Beautiful Morning

What a wonderful way to start a Sunday morning!  Sitting on my front porch, drinking a cup of coffee with my favorite man in the whole wide world, and looking at this special presentation from the Lord.  Beautiful!  We had a really good weekend.  We watched the movie “Fireproof” Saturday evening with some friends from church.  Then our Sunday School lesson was on marriage.  This was not planned to be that way-just our Lord at work.  I said we had an unplanned marriage retreat weekend.  We started the day with the beautiful sunrise and then on the way to church last evening the Lord gave a beautiful sunset to look at all the way to church.  (of course, I did not have the camera with me then)  How good is the Lord we serve?

Here is a picture of my first attempt to make english muffins.  They turned out pretty good-a little dense I thought but good.  I used a recipe I found on line to make the dough in my bread machine.  Next time I think I will try making them by hand to see if they are different.  I am trying really hard to make as much of our food at home as possible.  This really lowers the grocery bill and of course is healthier for us and usually tastes much better.  Well enjoy your day and God bless.

Good Morning!

I thought everyone might enjoy a little sunrise.  God decided to sent us this beautiful sunrise yesterday morning and I certainly was glad.  Whenever I see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, it always reminds me  of the majesty and power of God.  I think we all need a little reminding sometimes.  Nothing much going on here.  School as normal.  Things are getting back to our normal routine.  It was very cold here this morning.  Lots of wind.  The actual temperature was about 14 but the wind chill was much colder.  Hopefully, weather permitting, Jess and Dave will come up this weekend.  I need me some MawMaw time.  She will be going for her ultra-sound soon to find out if the baby is a boy or girl!  I’ll let everyone know when we know.  The girls are wanting me to play a game with them before school starts.  I better go.  Playtime awaits.  God Bless.
