Jessica’s baby shower went very well. We had lots of good food.
She got lots of nice gifts.

And baby Sam , well, just being baby Sam.
We have had some cooler temeperatures here this weekend. Saturday our low was 35 degrees, Sunday was 34 and this morning it was 38. I built a fire Saturday and Sunday. Last night, at church we started a new study. We will be studying Phillipians. We had lots of good food (of course). Chips and dip, cheeseball, homemade rolls, kielbasa with peppers and onions, cole slaw, salmon cakes, chicken, cookies, cake, ice cream and apple dumplings. As I said, lots of good food. Well, it’s time for school to start for us. Enjoy your day and God bless.
These pictures were taken just as the sun was coming up. Isn’t it a beautiful color? We certainly get some beautiful sunrises and sunsets here on the farm. Today is ladies bible study day. We will be beginning the study on Ruth by Kelly Minter. It promises already to be a great study. So many things she has pointed out just in the first week that I had never thought of. I love studies like that. They make me think and help me apply bible lessons to everyday life.
This evening we will be going to the Pastor’s house to start our applebutter making. I am looking forward to it. I have never made applebutter outside before. I think, though, it will be a lot of work. This evening we will be eating sloppy joes, chips and cookies. Tomorrow will be pot luck. We need to be at his house by 8:00 a.m. We will need to leave here by 6:45 to get there on time. I hopefully will get lots of pictures to share.
I better get busy. It’s almost time for the ladies to get here. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Yesterday was my Julie’s birthday. We celebrated by having a picnic lunch at Groundhog Mountain with our friends, the Horns. The building you see behind the kids is the lookout tower.
This is one of the things you can see from where the tower is. The mountain in the distance is called Buffalo Mountain. I think you can probably guess why.
We had birthday cake, hot dogs, chips and all the things that go with it. We are so blessed to have friends like the Horns. Their kids and our kids have so much fun together.
After the picnic, it was time for some work. We went to Levering Orchard in Ararat, Va. Time to pick some cherries. We had a great time. It is a pick your own orchard or you can purchase them already picked. It is, of course, cheaper if you pick. Besides who would want to miss all that fun. We picked almost 9 lb. or the equivalent of 2 gal. They are very good. After getting all hot picking cherries, we stopped on the way back at this little store for an ice cream cone. It certainly tasted delicious. All in all, it was a great birthday day. Prayerfully tomorrow I will be making a post about a beautiful new baby boy, with lots of pictures. I am making sure I have my camera with me. We are getting ready to leave as I type this. I need to be there by 5:00, as she is scheduled to be at the hospital by 7:00. I know I have asked before, but remember to pray for us. Take care and God bless.
