Hello everyone! Definitely long time-no post. Not sure why it has been so long. I would say I have been busy but then we are always busy. I guess I am in a blogging slump! I just can’t seem to think of anything to say (I know, imagine that huh!!) Well, anyway, today is beautiful here. Our temperature is 55 degrees and we have lots of sunshine. We had snow Friday about 3 in. but it is all gone now. YEAH! I am so done with snow and cold weather. I am ready for picnics and hiking and fun stuff like that.
As I said I am in a blogging slump. Sitting here typing and I just can’t come up with much to write about. We are enjoying our new pastor. He really has some interesting messages-gets us to really thinking about things. School is going well. We finished history this week, now to double up on science and get it done.
I guess I better get started on my Sunday night bible study lesson. I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
The temperatures here have been wonderful. Upper 50’s for several days now. We actually did not have a fire yesterday or today. Amazing! So what do we do when it’s this warm outside-cut wood, of course! Here are a few pictures.
This tree had been dead for quite a while. It was a pretty big tree. I hope you can see it. If you look at the right of the picture you can see where we cut it down. Hubby was very glad for his new larger chain saw. His old one would never have cut through it.
The wooded area where we were cutting opens up into a beautiful field.
We wheelbarrowed the wood to the truck. This made it a little easier to load. Hubby had to split most of the blocks just so we could lift them into the truck. We worked on this tree for 2 days and still didn’t get it finished. Hubby’s chain messed up on his saw so we had to quit until he gets it fixed. We did school in the mornings and then after lunch we would go cut wood. It was hard work getting the wood around the hill but we had a good time working together. I told Hubby all this physical exercise was keeping us young (lol).
What is more fun than riding in the truck bed after a hard day of working. God is good. We are getting ready to leave for Sunday night bible study. We are studying in Exodus. Tonight’s menu is sloppy joes, potato chips and dip, cole slaw and dessert (unknown at this time). I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
This year as a gift from God we have pumpkins. Quite a lot of pumpkins. We have decided to harvest them a little early as bugs have decided they like them too. The pie was made completely from scratch as you probably can tell. The crust is a very simple recipe that doesn’t require being rolled out. I like things simple. The filling recipe came from an old lady at a farmers market we visited years ago. If anyone is interested in these recipes let me know and I will post them. Today has been a good day. The girls played piano at church today. Grace played the special and Julie played the congregational. Big step for Julie-playing while others sing with her. They both did great. When I hear them play like that I think all that money and time for lessons was REALLY worth it. It’s almost time to leave for Sunday Night Bible Study at church. We are using John MacArthur’s study on the book of Daniel. It has been a very interesting study so far. The pie is for church tonight. After bible study we always eat(Its the Baptist way) Tonight we will be having a feast. Pinto beans, cornbread, onions, tomatoes, hot dogs, cole slaw, and pie. Who could ask for more. As I tell my oldest daughter, we really do study, the food is just extra. Gotta go and God Bless.
