Finished

I am finished with the quilt.  This will be for Alexius (oldest granddaughter on her birthday).  Next I am starting on Sam’s.  His birthday is next.  Last week seemed to go by quickly.  We got our haircuts and enjoyed a nice afternoon with Faye and Gene.  The girls and I went to Sam’s one day to get stocked up on a few things.  Hubby cut wood while we were gone.   Imagine that, choosing to cut wood over going shopping!  On another day, we did some more electrical for our friend that is moving.  And before we knew it the weekend was here.

So now, school is finished, outside chores are done, the girls have taken a walk on the tractor road and supper is in the oven.  Wow, how good is that!  Tonight we are having something new.  I bought some marinated turkey breasts at Sam’s last week.  We are baking one of them for supper.  It smells awesome.

I wanted to share this picture with you all.    You remember a while back when I made the comment that our pond was overflowing.  Well, we finally figured out why.  A duck has somehow got sucked into the drain pipe.  Not pleasant, I know, but strange things do happen.  Marvin told me he read somewhere that if he fell in, he had 20 min. before hypothermia set in.  I told him I’d be watching and if he fell in I would let him know when his time was running out but to make sure he got the duck out while he was in the water.  (lol)  Anyway, they are trying to get the drain unstopped.  So far, no success.

Well, I think that is about all that is going on around here.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

Fishing Day

100_3584

I thought this was just the cutest picture.  This little girl was so intent on her fishing pole.  Look close you can see her little bare toes sticking out from under her dress.  You can also notice her hair is wet.  She sat on this drain pipe through a little shower we had.  She did not want to give up her spot.  I heard we had over 100 people there Saturday. I think they said about 300 lbs. of trout were caught.  The kids had a great time.  Lots of fun and fellowship.  Afterward, we went shopping for a few things.  Hubby needed to replenish some of his electrical supplies.  Yesterday was church, went into town to pick up some ink for the printer.  When we got home, I made some baked beans to take to Sunday Evening Class.  Then we worked some on our homework.   Sunday Night’s menu was pigs in the blanket, baked beans, chips and  homemade dip, a pasta dish, coleslaw.  For dessert peach pie, ice cream and a dessert that Becky makes that I forgot the name of.  (Happens as I get older)  Temperatures have been cool here with quite a lot of rain.  We haven’t gotten all of our garden planted because it has just been too wet.  Hopefully this week we will get it finished.  I am, of course, washing clothes today.  Lots of clothes!  I guess they will have to be dried inside as it looks like the sun will not shine today. Tomorrow the girls and I are going down to Jessica’s to watch Daniel while she goes for an ultra sound.  Samuel is just about ready to be here.  Just a couple more weeks, maybe sooner.  Pray for a healthy and easy delivery for him and for her.  I better get busy.  Take care and God bless.
