“New” Books

100_5328

Yesterday, we stopped at Goodwill while on our way to the eye doctor.  The girls found these Narnia books.  They were so happy.  It is the complete set except for book 2 “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.  We will have to be watching for it.  Grace got a good report at the eye doctor.  Her vision had improved some.  She will be picking out new glasses next week.  We have been  blessed so much with improvement in her vision.  She will probably always have to wear bifocals but she has definitely come a long way.   We are extremely grateful to God for this blessing.

Today is still chilly here with a chance of rain for this afternoon but the rest of the week is supposed to be really nice-much warmer.  We are doing school as usual.  Later we will be going into town for piano lessons.  Tonight’s menu is kielbasa, cooked cabbage, and potatoes.  I think I will make a batch of rolls to go with it.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

New School Books

100_3460 We received our new school books for next year.  This is always an exciting time for us.  We love looking at them to see what the next year will be about.  Of course, about half way through them they will not be near as exciting.  Oh well, enjoy the moment, right.  Temperatures have been rather chilly here.  30 degrees this morning with scattered frost.  Hopefully no damage done.  We spent the weekend at Jessica’s.  Saturday was her baby shower day.  She received many nice things but of course I forgot my camera, so no pictures.  Her mother-in-law got her a really nice bassinet.  She is going to use this upstairs in the bedroom for a while.  Then they will put up his crib.   We also celebrated Hubby’s birthday while we were there.  Hot dogs with all the fixin’s and birthday cake.  We had a great time.  As usual, though, it goes by too quick.  When we came home last night, it was pretty chilly in the house.  We hurried and built a fire.  We still have one going today but I think it is going to warm up nicely.  The sun is shining and it looks beautiful outside.  Hubby and I are going to get another load of wood while the girls stay here and work on school.  Dale-a friend from church- is bringing over his wood splitter this evening to let us borrow.  Thank you Dale and thank you Lord for provided us with such good friends.  We are truly blessed.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

More Spring blooms

I was hoping with this shot to show all the trees colors together. The yellow of the forsythia, the white of the dogwood, and the purple of the lilac. This area is extremely fragant this time of year. When I’m hanging clothes on the line it smells so wonderful. Temperatures have been a little chilly here but today promises to warm up nicely. We are doing school as usual.Today will be our last spelling list. Yeah! I love doing school with my girls but we are all ready for summer break. I have made out my list of books for next year. We useABEKA.They offer free shipping in the month of April, so I want to order them before themonth is over.New books are always exciting around here.This evening I think we will be going into “little town” to get a few groceries, our seed potatoes and a few cabbage plants. I solook forward to enjoying fresh vegetables. Lunch break is over so I better get busy. God bless.
