Busy

Hello everyone!  We have finally moved out of the rain and cold and into sun and warmth.  I am glad.  I am definitely ready for warmer weather and sunshine.  I have clothes on the line, windows open and enjoying the day.  I just finished baking chocolate chip banana muffins.  I have rolls rising for supper tonight so all this added together makes my home smell wonderful.

Well, just a short post to let everyone know what has been going on here.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

Fall Colors

Here are a few of the pictures we took Saturday at Grayson Highlands.  The colors of fall are looking pretty good here.

We have had rain for several days so lots of the leaves have just fallen off.

Hopefully, not all though. I love the colors of fall.

We started school yesterday.  So far, everything is good.  Mostly just review right now.  We had some rather chilly weather yesterday so I built our first fire.  It was nice to feel the warmth and smell the wood smoke again.  Today we made a huge pot of chili beans for supper.  We plan on canning some of it-if there’s enough left.  It sure does smell good.

Well, lunch break is almost over.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

 

They’re Here

We got the baby chicks yesterday afternoon.  Aren’t they cute?  We have 22 of them.  5 are Buff Orpingtons and the others are Rhode Island Reds.  They had sold out all the Buff’s but 5 when we got there.  We took the last of the Reds that they had.  The lady said they would get more in on Monday but didn’t know what breeds they would be.  The odd one is a Ameraucana.  I think they are also known as Easter Eggers as they lay colored eggs.   We are hoping this one is a hen.  The girls thought it would be fun to get something different.  Anyway, they spent the night in the kitchen next to the wood fire.  It was pretty cold here last night with rain, fog and wind so we thought they might be better off inside the house.  Today, we moved them to the coop with a heat lamp for warmth.  The house seems quiet without their chirping. 

The girls and I are off to Sam’s and Lifeway today.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
