This is a far off picture of the graveyard that is on the farm. This picture was taken from the top of our driveway.
This is a closer shot. Right beside the graveyard is a hay barn.
I’m sure Jess will recognize this picture. On the left of this picture at the bottom of the hill is an old farmhouse. Dave and Jess lived there for several years before they moved to N.C.
Today will be school as usual, though we have not gotten our early start. We are running a little behind as Hubby and I did not wake up as early as usual. Saturday, we worked on cleaning up an area where we used to have the swimming pool. This was a major job which required almost 5 hrs. to finish. We had the back of the truck completely full of trash to haul to the dumpster. We had to cut the pool liner in pieces. It was too heavy to move in one solid piece. We kept the parts of the pool we thought we might could reuse. We were all muddy from head to toe, including the “bumpy truck”. But I am so glad to get this job done. Vicki and Quintin are giving us some strawberry plants and we plan on putting them in that space.
Yesterday’s menu at church was pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, green beans, cole slaw, beef strogonoff, key lime pie and cookies. We started our new study on Galatians. I think it will be a very good study. I better get busy or school will be starting really late. Enjoy your day and God bless.
The birds are starting to come in to the feeders now. Different ones than we get in the winter. They make such a joyful sound to the Lord. As soon as I get up in the morning, they are already singing. I go hang clothes on the line, their music fills the air. Such blessings the Lord gives.
Our weekend weather was a little different. It started to rain about 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning. It rained all day Saturday, all night Saturday night and most of the day Sunday. All our little creeks were overflowing. Several places the creek was running across the road when we came back from church Sunday afternoon. Then it started to ice, then it snowed some and finally it got bitter cold. When we came out from church last night, the side doors to the van were frozen shut. Julie and Grace had to get in the the front doors. We had some fierce wind so I guess that made the doors freeze. This morning it was 20 degrees when we got up. The wind has slowed down to a more manageable breeze, the sun is shining and hopefully it will get warmer. I just checked and it is 32 degrees now. I already have 2 loads of clothes on the line and another load ready to go out. I love clothes dried outside.
We finished our study of II Corinthians last night. Next week we will begin in Galatians. Our supper menu last night was pigs in a blanket, mashed potatoes, corn, baked beans, cornbread and a sour creme pound cake for dessert. I tell you, we sure do eat good. Our pastor says if you like to eat and shoot this is the church for you. As you may remember, our church does a lot of clay shoots as a men’s outreach. Lots of the women shoot too. We certainly have a lot of fun at our church. Hopefully, I haven’t made it sound like a social club. We are very dedicated to worshipping and serving the Lord. We just believe the Lord wants us to have fun too.
Well, it is time for school. Enjoy your day and God bless.
