Hello everyone! We are really getting rain today. I think it is predicted to get about 5″ but I think we have already gotten that much. Well, we really need rain so I’m thankful besides I love the sound of rain on our tin roof. Makes me want to curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee or tea. However, that is not possible as we are still working on apples. I love the fact that we have all these apples but I am getting a little tired of working on them. So Thursday or Friday, Mrs. Faye and her hubby and us are going to Mt. Airy to purchase new crop pinto beans. We will be spending the day looking at little shops along the way and fun things like that. Then she and I are going to get together next week and can them or at least that’s the plan as of now. I went to her house yesterday to help her with her apples. We did apple juice, applesauce and canned apples. We had a lot of fun together.
Well, that’s about it. Sorry I haven’t posted much but there’s not much going on here. I don’t think I mentioned it but Mt. Airy is the home of the Andy Griffith show. Have any of you ever watched it? I’ll try to take some pictures to show you all. Enjoy your day and God bless.
I thought the pond looked very pretty this morning. The sun was shining and the water looks beautiful. We need to enjoy this sunshine while we can. Weather reports are calling for a winter storm tomorrow with significant amount of accumulation. The girls are excited about this. Sledding! Prayerfully we will get to meet tomorrow for Ladies Study. We are going to meet earlier in the day to avoid anyone getting caught in the snow. In the 6 years we have been doing this study, I don’t think it has ever been this long since we met. I counted it up yesterday. This Friday will make 7 weeks. No wonder I miss those ladies. Today will be filled with the usual things. School, house cleaning, cooking, eating. Enjoying the love of family. I pray I never take the little things for granted. They are all gifts from God. Feel free to sit on my porch for a while. Bring a cup of coffe or tea and enjoy the view. Warning though, it can become habit forming. God Bless.
