I hope you all are not tired of sunrise pictures. I just love a beautiful sunrise and we get some amazing ones here. I thought this one this morning was especially beautiful.
Today while the girls worked on school, I worked on the dreaded refrigerators. We have two refrigerators here in the house. One is a side by side and the other is just a regular refrigerator with the freezer on top. So many little cups of this and cups of that had been stored over the holidays. It was getting impossible to find space to put new cups of this and that. I decided enough was enough. I cleaned both of them out completely, removed the shelves and washed them. I stood back and looked at them and was amazed at how much better they looked. Empty but better. So good that I decided to do the freezers too. Amazing! I actually have space in the fridges and the freezers now. I thought I would never get all those containers washed. I decided since the girls were working so hard on school, I would let them out of that chore today. Thats one job I am glad to have done.
While we were inside working on this Hubby was busy splitting wood. (Dave, he has your splitting maul sharpened and ready for you!) After we were finished inside, we went out and helped him move all the split wood inside the wood building. It was a fairly nice day for working outside. Temperature was around 30 degrees with occasional sunshine.
I thought I would share a picture of my rolls. Always before I have put them on a cookie sheet to bake. When I do this, I get 13-15 rolls. Over the weekend, I tried something different and put them into 3 round cake pans. I get 21-24 rolls using these pans and I think they look and taste better. Yesterdays supper was fried chicken, home canned corn, and gravy. With of course, these rolls.
We worked on the apples some more yesterday. I canned this juice instead of freezing it. Freezing it is much easier but, Praise the Lord, my freezers are getting full. I have to save some space my the deer my Hubby will be getting. Notice my positive thinking! Anyway, we got 5 qts of juice and 2 qts of applesauce. Hopefully, we will be doing more today.
I am trying out a new recipe for apple muffins for breakfast. Thanks Cheryl for sharing. They have just came out of the oven. I think I will go enjoy them. Take care and God bless.
This lily has had a rough beginning. In early spring, it was trampled and broken by a big footed pup. It seems to have survived nicely though. I have waited all spring to see what it would look like. I think it looks pretty next to the purple flowers. I most definitely will have to separate some of these flowers next year. The bed is extremely crowded. Yesterday was a busy day. The girls and I cleaned out both of the big freezers-making room for this year’s harvest. This took a major portion of the day. Then I helped Hubby by mowing some before he came in from work. For supper, I used some of the pork tenderloin I had cooked the day before. I like to cook a large amount of meat at one time and then use it in different dishes for another meal. So I put the tenderloin in the oven with some potatoes and roasted them. We also had corn on the cob from our freezer, biscuits with butter and homemade blackberry jam for dessert. Today is starting out to be a beautiful day here is Floyd. Lots of sunshine. Tomorrow our church is doing a horseshoe tournament down by the river. We will play horseshoes, eat lots of good food, listen to good music and in general have a great time. It amazes me some people think Christian life is boring. We have a blast at my church! We are small in number but we do lots of things together. We are family. I will try to get some pictures to post of our activities. This is the first year we have done this and we are hoping many will come. Baby Sam and Mom are still doing good. Daniel says he loves his baby brother. Thanks so much for your prayers. I hope to go down to see them soon and get more pictures. Take care and God bless.
