Rainy Tuesday

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.

An Old Lamp

As you all know, I love old things.  My mother-in-law gave me this old lamp while we were down helping her move.  It needed a new shade and a little cleaning.  Grace cleaned it for me and we are on the lookout for a shade that will do it honor.   I have it on top of my treadle sewing machine for now. 

We are getting some much needed rain here today.  I understand we are about 4 in. below normal on our water level.  It seems very cozy, the rain on the tin roof, a warm fire.   I think I need to light some candles to make it even cozier.

We are working on school today.  Also cleaning house.  The ladies will be coming tomorrow for bible study.  Tomorrow will be our last lesson in this study, “Women who believed God”.  It has been a good study.  Tonight’s menu is sloppy joes, french fries, green beans and a peach pie with homemade whipped creme for dessert.  YUM!

I hope you all have wonderful day and God bless.

P.S.  In answer to the question about what sassafras tea tastes like, it resembles a root beer or birch beer taste.  You can drink it hot or cold.  We prefer hot but it is good cold.
