Grace and Sam

Grace and Sam are pretty big buddies.  She is usually his watcher and Julie has Daniel.  As you can see, Sam must be barricaded away from the construction zone.  He is just a little bit too much help.

He looks a little sad, don’t he?

The electrical is all done and the ceiling is hung.  Monday we will hang the walls and start putting the mud on (hopefully).  After that, the new floor goes down.   Hubby will be building her a pantry to go beside her new stove.

The boys were very happy when they were allowed inside the construction zone to help.  They worked very hard pulling up the old tile.  Daniel would pull it up with his special tool and Sam would carry it to the trash.  Very good helpers.

Temperatures here are very cold.  Wind gusts of about 40 mph with an actual temperature of 13 degrees, putting the wind chill below zero.  Our wood stove has been working hard keeping us nice and warm inside though.  I hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm.  God bless.

A Finished Project

I finally have Grace’s quilt finished.  I started it last year after I finished Julie’s.  Gardening came upon us and I had to put the quilt away until winter.  I now have made all 3 girls a wall hanging/quilt that I sewed by hand.   I am not very skilled at sewing things by hand so these will probably be the only ones I do.

Temperatures are still cold here.  Actual temperature this morning was 10 degrees with a -10 wind chill.  When the cold wind blows here it is very difficult to keep the house warm.  The wind seems to find its way inside in places we never thought possible.   Anyway, our wood stove is working overtime.  I am very grateful to have this stove.  It certainly puts out a lot of heat. 

I am working on a new apron and hopefully will be able to show you all a picture of it soon.   School as usual today.  The ladies are coming tomorrow for bible study and it is my turn to make dessert.  I am thinking of making a buttermilk chocolate cake.  I got the  recipe from a blogger friend and it has become a favorite of ours.   I like buttercream frosting with ours.  It reminds me of a cake that was served at school when I was a kid.  They called it wacky cake.  I do not like chocolate very much but this cake is really good.

Enjoy your day and God bless.
