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.

 

 

My Accomplishment-Pumpkin Roll

100_4805

For many years, I have thought about trying to make one of these.  However I have always been intimidated by the idea of rolling it up.  I’m not sure why as I make many other things that need to be rolled.  Anyway, today was the day I put my fears behind me and tackled it.  Guess what?  It was not near as difficult as I thought it would be.  With a little practice, I think it would even be easy. 

Today is an absolutely beautiful day here in Floyd.  Temperatures are in the mid 60’s. Lots of sunshine.  Just beautiful!  I can hardly wait to get my stuff finished and get out in this wonderful weather.   Yesterday I cooked a large pork roast in the crockpot.  We had pork roast, cheesy potatoes and pinto beans.   Tonights menu will be pork bbq with homemade buns, home fries and slaw.   I think there will be enough pork left over for burrittos tomorrow night.  I like to do this.  Cook a large amount of meat and then use it in several different ways for supper over the next few days.  This speeds up cooking time in the evening. 

I think I need to get busy.  My “green swing” is lonely and needs me to come keep it company.  God bless.
