Yesterday morning, we had a beautiful start to our morning. I love sunrises and sunsets.
After church, we came home to eat lunch. We had hamburgers on homemade buns and fries. We ate as quickly as possible and left for town to watch the Christmas Parade. The parade is a big deal here in Floyd. Lots and lots of people come to watch and participate. Here are just a few pictures Grace took.
There are lots of old cars.
wagons pulled by horses. We had a great time! The girls are already anticipating next year’s parade. We have rain here today with fog. Not a good day for doing anything outside. Hubby is working on the bed but he has to do it inside his shop. He doesn’t have a lot of room in there so he doesn’t like to work inside. He is getting very close to being finished however he still does not have his brakes fixed on the van. He has taken the wheel off several times and did different things to it but it is still sticking. He wanted to replace the wheel cyclinder today but it is just too wet to work on it. Hopefully, this will fix it.
Today, I made a spice tea mix. I got the recipe from Nadine at http://nadinesnook.blogspot.com/ She also posted a recipe for chai tea mix that I want to make. These will make excellent gifts. Well, our lunch break is almost over. Enjoy your day and God bless.
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.
These pictures were taken just as the sun was coming up. Isn’t it a beautiful color? We certainly get some beautiful sunrises and sunsets here on the farm. Today is ladies bible study day. We will be beginning the study on Ruth by Kelly Minter. It promises already to be a great study. So many things she has pointed out just in the first week that I had never thought of. I love studies like that. They make me think and help me apply bible lessons to everyday life.
This evening we will be going to the Pastor’s house to start our applebutter making. I am looking forward to it. I have never made applebutter outside before. I think, though, it will be a lot of work. This evening we will be eating sloppy joes, chips and cookies. Tomorrow will be pot luck. We need to be at his house by 8:00 a.m. We will need to leave here by 6:45 to get there on time. I hopefully will get lots of pictures to share.
I better get busy. It’s almost time for the ladies to get here. Enjoy your day and God bless.
