Our first eagle spotting of the year. So exciting! We think they must travel through here every year. They are so pretty. I remember the first year we lived here. The girls were very young. We were sitting outside talking about the different birds we had saw that day. One of the girls said “Oh, Mommy, I wish we could see an eagle”. I remember thinking that would really be something to see an eagle in the wild. Then that fall we saw them. We were SOOOO excited and we still get excited every year when they come through.
My Grace is sick with strep throat. Yesterday we went to the doctor and got antibiotics. Today has been a pretty rough day for her. We are praying that by tomorrow she will start to feel better. She is sitting in her favorite chair enjoying a new book she just got with her birthday money.
Hubby has been busy this morning working on the brakes on the van. He was having trouble with them but thinks he has gotten the problem fixed. I am so thankful he is able to work on our vehicles himself. Hubby and I will be going up on the hill later to cut a load of wood. Then he wants to work on Jess and Dave’s bed. He wants to work on the stain color to make sure he has it just right. Then it will be time to stain and poly. YEAH. I can’t wait to show you ladies how it looks. It looks beautiful!
Well, I have lots to get done so I better get busy. Enjoy your day and God bless.
We had a really nice weekend here in Floyd. Dave, Jess and the boys came up to celebrate Hubby’s birthday. Jess and I went to a yard sale in town. Later that evening they took us all out to eat at a local Mexican restuarant. We had a great time. On Sunday we went on a picnic down the parkway. This is a picture we took from one of the lookouts.
Today, we went down to watch the boys while Jess went to her doctors appointment. All is going well with her and the baby. Thank you, Lord. She will find out next month if she is having a girl or a boy. Daniel said they don’t want any “gwirls” there. Jess told him “but what about Mommy.” Daniel said “You’re not a “gwirl” , you’re Mommy. We are just praying for a healthy baby-boy or girl.
We have been getting lots of rain here. We have had a little sun this evening but mostly overcast. We still do not have our plants in the garden yet. It has just been too wet. We don’t have the brush pile burned or the lower garden tilled. I still have lots of flower seeds to get in the ground too. Oh well, all in God’s time.
A picture of me and Daniel. We had a lot of fun playing together this weekend. It is very seldom I get a picture of us together. I miss you already, Daniel. He is a very active little boy so he definitely keeps Mommy busy. We are starting to thaw out a little here. The snow melted quite a lot yesterday. We probably still have about 10 inches to melt yet, but we are on the way. A small storm is coming through today with very little accumulation. Hopefully there will be church tonight. We haven’t met on a Wednesday night in about a month. I think our Friday Ladies Study will meet this week too. Our driveway and the hill at the barn are passable. We are starting a Beth Moore study on Esther. It is my week to do dessert. I am making something one of the ladies from our Sunday night study gave me the recipe for. Thanks Faye. It is extremely easy. You use ice cream sandwiches, line them up in the bottom of a 9X13 cake pan, cover them with cool whip, drizzle chocolate syrup on that and freeze. Wow! how easy is that and it is sooooo delicious. I can hardly wait for the ladies to try it. I really enjoy trying new recipes. Well, time for school to start. I better get busy. God bless.
Here’s our wood supply so far. What do you think? Enough for winter? The back goes 7 rows deep. Lots of work thats for sure. But some surprises too. I found 2 little black kittens in the pile we were moving today. The mommy cat had them hid really well. They were scared but friendly and of course very cute. Weather was very nice for wood splitting. Short sleeve weather. Tomorrow is a slight chance of rain so I’m glad the wood is in the dry. I am baking amish friendship bread this evening. It has been a 10 day process but I think it is going to be worth it. It smells WONDERFUL. I can’t wait to taste it. Hubby didn’t get a deer yet but we did have one donated to us. Thanks, Eldon! We’ve had tenderloin and gravy for breakfast two days in a row. Good stuff. Well, I’m pretty tired, all that wood is hard work. God Bless.
