Hello ladies. It has been very cold here in Floyd today. Temperatures have been in the upper 30’s but the wind has made it seem like 20’s. We had snow flurries yesterday but nothing stuck to the ground. This morning was extremely overcast but by late afternoon the sun came out for a little while.
The girls and I worked on school in the morning and then we helped Hubby set up Jessica’s bed. No pictures yet as he has not put the headboard and footboard on. He says we will have to put them on after we take it down to Jess. It would be too big to fit in the van if we put it together here. We are thinking we will take it down to them Saturday, if all goes well.
Yesterday, the girls and I went down to Jessica’s. Sam and Katie had appointments so we went to help. On the way back home, Sam feel asleep. I carried him up to his crib, we ate lunch and then left. Sam was very upset when he woke up and found out MawMaw was gone. Jess had to call me and let him talk to me on the phone.
Here are a few of the turtle pictures we took while at Pandapas Pond the other day.
They were pretty skittish so we had to sneak upon them to get the pictures.
Grace did a great job!
A beaver lodge on the pond. Several geese were resting on top of it.
We have several things planned to work on today. Rain is in the forecast though so we may not get any of it done. We’ll just have to wait and see. I am going to use the remainder of the pork tenderloin this evening to make bbq sandwiches for supper. I have enough rolls left from last night to use for buns. I think I will do homesfries and coleslaw with it. I like to cook enough meat to make several meals from it. This makes it a little easier I think. We have dentist appointments tomorrow in Roanoke, then we are going to Sam’s Club to pick up a few things. After that, we are going to pick out Grace’s frames for her new glasses. The Horns are supposed to come by tomorrow evening to visit. YEAH! It has been a while since we have got to visit.
I better get busy. Hubby and I are working on a big outside project. I’ll try to show pictures next time I make a post. Anyway, he is wanting to get started so that hopefully we can get some of it done before it starts raining. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Today was spent running errands. The girls had dentists appointments this morning. We left home at 9:00 as it takes about an hour to get to Roanoke from here. After their appointments, we spent some time in Lifeway. I picked out several studies I think the ladies will enjoy doing. Then we went to Toys R Us. The girls wanted to look around.
When the girls were younger, we always called Roanoke “big big town, Christiansburg was “big town” and Floyd (our town) was called “little town” . So we came back, went to “little town” and picked up the wheat I had ordered. It is called Prairie Gold. It is a hard white spring wheat. It can be used in all baking, from bread to cookies. The price was $25.00 for a 50 lb. bag. Pretty good price. Tomorrow I hope to make cinnamon rolls to share with a friend on Thursday. If I’m really industrious, maybe a loaf of bread too. Our snow is melting more each day. Temperature today was about 60 degrees. I went out on my back porch and sat on my porch swing. I love porch swings. When I was a little girl, my grandmother had a porch swing and I have loved them ever since. To me, nothing says relaxing more than a swing, so I have 1 porch swing and 2 yard swings. All made for me by my loving Hubby. The girls have had 2 tree swings since they were very small and still enjoy them. I guess we’re just “a swingin” bunch. Take care and God bless.
