Here are a few pictures of some flowers that are blooming around our house now.  I am pretty sure these are called violas.  I so enjoy their tiny bright blooms.  So cheerful.  Purple and yellow are my favorite color combinations for flowers.



Yesterday, we made strawberry rhubarb jam.  I had enough rhubarb to make a rhubard pie as well.  The recipe I use is :

1 cup rhubard- finely chopped, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 tbsp cornstarch and 2 eggs well beaten.  Combine all ingredients and pour into 1 unbaked pie crust.  Bake at 350 degrees until done.  It takes about 45 min in my oven.  I have made this pie for about 25 years.  It is a family favorite.

Today was friends day at church.  We had a great day.  Probably about 70 people in total.  Our numbers usually run in the 40’s.  We had some really good music, a good sermon from our pastor and  a great fellowship meal afterward because you all know how much we like to eat.  I took pinto beans, green onions and a peach sauce pie.   We won’t be having evening bible study tonight so we plan on just relaxing this evening.  The girls and I will be traveling down to Jessica’s tomorrow to watch the boys.  She will be having an ultra sound tomorrow to (maybe) discover if she will be having a boy or girl.  This all depends upon the baby’s cooperation of course.  

Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. The flowers are so pretty. I think they have even grown some more since Friday. Sounds like a fun day at church. Have a safe and fun trip to Jess’s. I hope she is able to see if she’s having a boy or girl 🙂


  2. Those flowers are beautiful! I especially like the ones in the first picture. I have never seen any like that before. It sorta looks like a bunch of butterflys landed in your bush. So pretty. Hope baby shows him/her self tomorrow. I grew up in a small church. We were lucky to have over 25 and I was the only child 🙂 We always enjoyed eating at church too. Pinto beans w/ onions is one of my hubby’s favorites (don’t forget the cornbread) 🙂 Hope you have a great week.
    Many blessings,

  3. I like the purple and yellow combination as well. You have a lot of beautiful flowers.

    It sounds like you had a great Friend’s day at church. Hopefully more people will continue to go.

    I will be praying that all goes well on your trip to Jessica’s. I am sure you will have fun with your grandsons.

    Have a great day.
