Beautiful Morning

We were blessed with a beautiful sky this morning. It is cold here with a wind chill of 10 degrees. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph. Nothing unusual for us though. Snow was on the ground this morning but the sun is out. Sunshine makes everything better in my opinion.

Not much going on here. I have been staying busy just not much to blog about. I have been going through my seeds. Organizing them and getting rid of some of the older ones. I have made a list of what I need. That way if I’m out and get a package of seeds I can mark it off the list.

I’ve been meaning to share this picture of Jessica’s kids. I love it. They are ready for anything! Just look at Katie’s face.

Also a picture of this little man, who has been very sick for the last week or so. He is finally feeling better but gave us all a scare.

Well that’s about it. As I said not much going on. Enjoy your day and God bless.

Granola Bars

These are our favorite granola bars.  /  I am making another batch of them this morning.  I just make the basic one.  They are really good and easy to make. I am also making some vanilla yogurt.

We got some snow yesterday.   Very pretty but cold.  Our high yesterday only got to 15 degrees and the wind chill stayed below zero.  Oh well, next week is supposed to be warmer.

The icicles are starting to drip.

Grace feeding the birds.  We get so much enjoyment from watching them come and eat.

Not a lot going on here.  Staying warm mostly.  I’ve did some baking.  I found some cherries in the freezer so I made a cherry cobbler.  

I guess that’s about all for now.  As I said not a lot going on.  Enjoy your day and God bless.


Good morning everyone!  I hope you are all having a good week so far.  I took this picture from the top of our driveway.  We are so blessed to live where we do.  Also very blessed with warmer temperatures this week.

The other two weeks in January have been really cold.  

Lows around zero with wind chills in the negative teens.  Sometimes staying that temperaure all day.  

The girls and I made a trip to Wal-Mart in Radford over the weekend.  I just could not go past Rural King without going in.  I thought they might have a few spring things out already.  OH MY GOODNESS!  They had all their seeds out.  This is just one section of them.  It was like walking inside a seed catalog.  We loved it.  I think I will probably just get my seeds from there this year instead of ordering.  They definitely have a huge selection to choose from. 

We couldn’t believe they had these seeds.  We planted these last year in the garden.  They are really pretty.   I thought I would probably have to order them for this year.  Last fall just seemed to be so busy I didn’t get to save any seeds from them but we found them there.  Amazing!

I guess that’s all for now.  I hope you have a good week and God bless.

Happy New Year

Hello everyone.  Today is the first day of 2018.  Amazing.  It has been really cold here for the last couple of days.  Lows in the single digits with wind chills below zero.  Now I definitely am not a fan of cold weather but it does have it’s good points.  One of which is getting to cook on the wood stove.  

Grace took these pictures of some visitors here on the farm. 

We have all been sick here but I think we are finally on the mend.  It has been rough.

I love looking at seed books.  I am glad I had just got these.  It has really helped pass the time.

I made this cake to take to our Christmas dinner at Jessica’s.   I got the recipe from the Elliot homestead.  It was my first time using a springform pan.  I really liked using the pan and the cake was delicious.  

Grace just took this picture of the moon. Beautiful, isn’t it!

I hope you have a good week and God bless.
