Beautiful Corn

9515189975_85f29883a5_z

The girls and I have been busy working up corn.  At first, we didn’t think it would do very well because of all the rain we had but it seems to have not hurt it any.  We put up 104 ears in the freezer.  That should do us nicely through the winter.

I wanted to share the view with you all from my back porch.  It was a beautiful morning here in Floyd.  Our temperature this morning was 48 degrees.  Amazing!  Grace and I wore jeans to the garden this morning to pull the corn.

This is a picture of some flowers we planted at the edge of the garden.  They sure do add color to the space and look very cheerful.

I have shown you all this flower before.  We researched it and found some people call them “naked ladies”.  Well, this year, we found out more about them.  They are also called “resurrection lily”.  I like that name so much better.  In early spring,  they will come out as foliage, then they die back and in late July or early August these beautiful flowers come up.  Amazing how God works!  All the years we have lived here, the green foliage has come up and I just thought it didn’t have bloom on it.  I never made the connection between the foliage and the flower.  Remember last week when I helped Hubby texture a ceiling, the lady who owned the house gave me all this information.  She had them growing in her yard as well.

Well, that’s about it.  Time for us to eat lunch.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

Ouch!!!

I thought I would show you ladies what happens when a cinderblock falls on your toe. Thankfully, I was wearing boots or it would have been lots worse. I must tell you all though, I really hesitated about showing you this picture. I did not realize I had such strange looking feet until I took this picture. Oh well, they are what they are, I guess.  It didn’t get me out of work though. I had to go with him this morning to texture the ceiling on the sheetrock job. That job is finished now so we can go back to working just the remodeling job. He has been going to the sheetrock job in the mornings and the remodeling job in the evenings. Doesn’t that sound wonderful!!! 2 jobs at one time. We are so blessed.

 Our temperatures did warm up some today. I think we actually got to about 50 degrees. It is supposed to be cold again tonight. I just finished building a fire to keep us toasty warm. I kinda thought we were finished with fires for this season but I guess I was wrong.   I hope all this cold doesn’t destroy the fruit harvest.

 I hope you all have a great evening. God bless.

Finished

Hello ladies.  We are finished with our part of the redo.  Here we are getting ready to texture the ceiling.

The finished ceiling.  There are 11 recessed lights in her kitchen now.  When we started it was pretty dark in her kitchen now it is very bright.

Here we are just starting to put down the floor.  Now I must say, this floor just about did us in.  It took us 2 days on our knees to get it down but it was definitely worth it.

It looks beautiful!  David’s sister will be coming tomorrow to paint the walls.  Jess chose buttercream for the walls.  After the walls are painted, the next step will be to finish taking the doors off the cabinets and stripping off the laminate.  The cabinet doors will have to be sanded.  Then the cabinets themselves will be ready for paint.  Jess has chose black for the cabinet paint.  I will continue to show you all pictures as the process comes along.  I think it will all look really great.

Well, that’s about it for today.  I have lots of catching up to do with everyone.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

Another Update

It is Tuesday evening and we are home for the night.  The project is getting closer and closer to being finished.  Yesterday, we hung all the walls.  Today we got everything mudded and tomorrow we will sand and texture the ceiling and then the drywall part will be done.  After that, we have a place in front of the sink to fix, possibly replacing the sink and sink cabinet.    Then the new floor will go down.  YEAH!

And now some pictures of SPRING!  Jessica’s temperatures are much warmer than ours.  Down where she lives, there are many signs of spring.  Her daffodils are just ready to bloom.   On the road down to her house, we see lots and lots of daffodils already blooming.  We are like kids in a candy shop, looking for them, trying to be the first one to spot them.

The maple tree in her yard is full of buds.

Dandelions are already starting to bloom.  I thought you all should know that while I’m there its not all work.  There are flowers to enjoy, warmer temperatures and, of course,  GRANDBABIES!  I have a blessed life. 

 Well, I better get busy.  I had hoped to catch up on what’s been happening in everyone else life but it is late and I still have much to get done.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
