Today we are getting back into the swing of school. We had too many errands yesterday to start. We also visited some with the Horn’s yesterday. For Christmas, the Horn girls had received a kit from Wal-Mart to make a little girl apron and a little doll apron. I took some interfacing over and Vicki and I traced out the pattern. So I now have a little doll apron pattern to make. I want to make a mother, daughter, and doll apron to match.
Temperatures here are much nicer than they have been however yesterday morning was pretty cold. Temperature yesterday was 14 when we got up but it did warm up nicely with lots of sunshine. Cloudy today though, of course, because I am home and could hang our clothes on the line today. Oh well, thats how it goes. Hubby worked on getting some more wood yesterday while the girls and I ran errands.
Tonights menu is something I really don’t have a name for. I brown hamburger meat, add onions, cabbage, and potatoes. The options are limitless as to what you can add. I sometimes add fresh peppers, zucchini, squash, mushrooms. I like fresh baked cornbread with it. I got some cushaw from the freezer this morning. I think I will make a pie for dessert.
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.
