I thought I would show you ladies what happens when a cinderblock falls on your toe. Thankfully, I was wearing boots or it would have been lots worse. I must tell you all though, I really hesitated about showing you this picture. I did not realize I had such strange looking feet until I took this picture. Oh well, they are what they are, I guess. It didn’t get me out of work though. I had to go with him this morning to texture the ceiling on the sheetrock job. That job is finished now so we can go back to working just the remodeling job. He has been going to the sheetrock job in the mornings and the remodeling job in the evenings. Doesn’t that sound wonderful!!! 2 jobs at one time. We are so blessed.
Our temperatures did warm up some today. I think we actually got to about 50 degrees. It is supposed to be cold again tonight. I just finished building a fire to keep us toasty warm. I kinda thought we were finished with fires for this season but I guess I was wrong. I hope all this cold doesn’t destroy the fruit harvest.
Ain’t they cute! We went down for a short visit Saturday. Not as long as we would have liked but still a good visit. Sam is growing so much already. He had really filled out. He seems to be a very content little boy. Daniel is busy drawing pictures for his mom. If you look close at his face you can see the “little boy” dirt streaks all over it. One of his favorite things to do Saturday was play in his little pool for a while, then get out and go play in the dirt and gravel pile. Pretty much all out fun in little boy world. Sunday was Ladies Day at church. This means the ladies have the entire service. We do everything. We decided since it was Father’s Day, we would say a few things about our Dads and how they had influenced our lives. It was a really nice service. Everyone did such a good job. Julie and Grace played the special music. Julie played “God’s Touch” and Grace played “God of our Fathers” and “Faith of our Fathers”. They both did a great job. Hard work and practice do produce results. Having a great teacher really helps too. Hubby and I make jerky yesterday from some of the hamburger meat we put up from the beef. We all really like jerky. It gets eat up pretty fast around here. After church we mostly just rested and enjoyed the day. No Sunday night study because it was Father’s Day. We won’t be meeting for several Sundays in the evenings. Next Sunday night, VBS will start and the next weekend is the 4th of July weekend. When we first started doing these studies, we all agreed not to meet on holiday weekends. Everyone is usually busy doing things with their families. I think I will be able to pick some more peas today. I have gathered a few more squash. I think I will cook a venison roast to go with them, maybe some homemade biscuits. Sounds good to me.
While we were down at Jessica’s we went to this little hardware store that is a Charlie’s soap outlet. I don’t know if any of you have heard of it or not, but it is a laundry soap that is made in Mayodan, NC. You can read about it on the internet. Well, Jess and I both bought some to try out. I am going to use it today and see how we like it. Time to go hang clothes out. I so enjoy hanging my clothes out on the line. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the sun. The birds always sing such beautiful praises to God while I’m out there and I get to be part of it. Thank you, Lord. Enjoy your day and God bless.
