We awoke this morning to a wintry mix.

Not a lot going on here this week.  Grace has had a little sore throat and congestion going on this week.  Hubby has been dealing with something going on with his tummy.  Not exactly sure what.  I think a trip to the doctor might help but he thinks for sure (today) that he is doing better.  We’ll see.

Yesterday, Julie and I went to C-burg while Grace and Hubby stayed home.  I was hoping to find a few twin size flat sheets at Goodwill to use as the backing for the quilts I’m working on.  I did find one but I don’t think it will be for Sam’s quilt but hopefully it will work for one of the other ones.  We picked up a few things at Wal-Mart, paid a few bills and came on home.  I’m glad we got all that done yesterday before the storm hit.  We also downloaded sheet music for Julie.  The song is titled Hope’s Song by Rebecca St. James.  She wants to play and sing this song at church for Easter.  She’ll have to work pretty hard on it though as Easter is just around the corner.

Julie and I spotted a few of these colts foot blooming yesterday.  I took this picture from an older post of mine as we did not have the camera with us yesterday.  It is always so exciting when we see these starting to bloom.  They are (to my knowledge) our first wild flowers to bloom in spring.  YEAH!

Well, I guess that’s about it.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

Dreaming of Summer

I’ve probably posted this picture before, but I thought we might all need a little color today.  The Butterfly bush and the Rose of Sharon are always full of brillant color.  The rocks came from over the hill on the farm.  I got Marvin to bring them over on the tractor.  He said this was a first for him, usually people want to get the rocks out of their yard not put them in.  I think however it adds to the charm.  Today temperatures will probably be in the upper 20’s.  They say a chance of wintry mix for Friday.  February is almost here though.  Somehow in my mind, in February, my thoughts turn to spring, gardening, flowers, sunshine.   Winter,however, does allow more time for things like sewing, quilting, crocheting.  I am almost finished with Julie’s quilted wall hanging.  I will post a picture of it when I’m finished.  I attempted to make homemade hamburger buns yesterday.  I do not own a hamburger bun pan so I thought I might could put them in my cast iron biscuit pan.  Not a good idea.  The tasted good, however, they looked like jumbo muffins.  We ate them last night covered with cooked deer and gravy and mashed potatoes.  No one seemed to mind how they looked.  I don’t like to give up though so I will try another approach next time.  Well, better get started on school.  God Bless.
