I thought I would show you all how big these goslings are. It always amazes me how fast they grow. They are however ravenous eaters. We also have ducklings (we think). She hatched them off and took them up into the field. We have not seen them since. Mama and Papa Duck are still around though so we are confident the ducklings are too. Mama is just keeping them well hidden.
I forgot to mention in yesterdays post about the chick house, all the planks and the door are from the old farmhouse we are working on. He said we could have all the old wood. We have been thinking of ways to reuse it. I think some of it will go to box in the remainder of our back porch. Today is a nice day here in Floyd. Temperature is 66 degrees. We have had some sun but it is overcast now and I think rain is coming.
Tonights menu at church is kraut and weiners, pinto beans, cornbread, cole slaw and strawberry rhubarb pie. (Thats just what I know about). For a class of 10-12 people, we sure do eat good. Time for me to start getting everything ready. Enjoy your evening and God bless.
Hello ladies. It has been very cold here in Floyd today. Temperatures have been in the upper 30’s but the wind has made it seem like 20’s. We had snow flurries yesterday but nothing stuck to the ground. This morning was extremely overcast but by late afternoon the sun came out for a little while.
The girls and I worked on school in the morning and then we helped Hubby set up Jessica’s bed. No pictures yet as he has not put the headboard and footboard on. He says we will have to put them on after we take it down to Jess. It would be too big to fit in the van if we put it together here. We are thinking we will take it down to them Saturday, if all goes well.
Yesterday, the girls and I went down to Jessica’s. Sam and Katie had appointments so we went to help. On the way back home, Sam feel asleep. I carried him up to his crib, we ate lunch and then left. Sam was very upset when he woke up and found out MawMaw was gone. Jess had to call me and let him talk to me on the phone.
I thought I would show you all a quilt the girls made for Katie. They did everything including heming it on the machine. I thought they did a really good job. I just finished crocheting an afgan for her but we forgot to take a picture of it. I’ll try to get one next time we go down.
Today has been rainy and overcast here. The air has become chillier as the day progressed. Not much else going on here. We did school and then Hubby and I went in to town to get some chicken feed. They have been doing really well with their laying. I had sold enough eggs to pay for the feed except for $2.00. I thought that was pretty good.
Supper tonight is deer tenderloin, gravy, corn, biscuits and plum jelly. YUM! Here are a few fall shots we took the other day.
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.
I thought I would share these pictures of a field of wild mustard. This field is on our way into town.
I think it is absolutely beautiful!
So of course I took several pictures from several different views.
Last one. As I was taking these pictures another man was up in another driveway taking pictures too. He of course had a very fancy camera with a tripod. Obviously, I am not the only one who thinks it is beautiful.
We are overcast still today but it is supposed to be fairly warm. I am getting ready to take clothes to the line to dry. We still have some wind but not too bad. We are hoping the wind dies down soon. We have not burned the brush pile off the lower garden yet. We need to get it burned as Hubby will soon need to tiller it. School today as usual. Yesterday we only did half school as we had to go to piano practice in the afternoon. We stopped by the library and Julie found plenty of books she was interested in reading. Grace found a few but not as many as Julie did. Sometimes it is difficult to find books we want to read. The librarian told me it probably meant we had already read all the good ones. We do enjoy reading. Enjoy your day and God bless.
We have more babies!! This morning Mama Goose came off her nest with 6 little ones. Very exciting. I could hardly wait to get pictures and show you all. They had six little ones last year and we so enjoyed watching them grow up. We are looking forward to watching these grow up as well.
Saturday we had a great visit with my aunt and uncle-just didn’t seem long enough. The time went by so quickly and we had so much to catch up on. We hope to get to see them again soon. Yesterday’s church message was very good. He preached on how the Jews missed recognizing Jesus as the Messiah and how the same reasons still apply to the world today. It was very interesting.
We will be doing school today as usual. I have to help Hubby fix the drivers window on the van. It has somehow managed to get off track. He has to take the door panel off. Hopefully, it will not be too difficult to fix. I know I have said this before but I am so thankful Hubby is talented in the area of fixing things. I think it is going to be a fairly nice day here in Floyd. It is a little overcast but I think the forecast is just partly cloudy.
This cat’s name is Panther but somehow Grace started calling him Pan-Pan and now everyone calls him that. He is a very loving and playful cat. Here he is thinking about “attacking” another cat that is walking by.
We seem to be on the mend here. Grace (I think) is almost over it and Julie is feeling better than she was. Hopefully we will soon be completely better. Jess had planned on coming up this week with the boys and spending a few days with us while David is gone on a business trip. This won’t be happening now. Oh well, we hope to go down on Easter Sunday to spend the day with them. Yesterday was a beautiful day here. We had sunshine and warm temperatures after the fog lifted. Today is slightly overcast but the temperature is warm. I have clothes on the line outside to dry. Our birds are singing beautifully. I think it will be a nice day.
We are finally getting a little color in our yard. I love these cheerful early flowers. They brighten up the landscape and our outlook so much, I think. Saturday was very nice here. We got all the trimming done. YEAH! Everything looks so much neater. It is all piled up in the garden to be burned whenever we can catch a day the wind isn’t blowing too hard. Yesterday, was absolutely beautiful. The temperature actually got up to 60 degrees. I sat outside for a very long time reading. Then Hubby came out and entertained me with his banjo. We had a team leaders meeting yesterday after church so we did not do our bible study last night.
Friday’s weather was very different from Saturday and Sunday. First we had quite a lot of rain.
Then we had some hail.
Today is chilly and overcast. They are calling for rain today and tomorrow. Grace has an appointment at the eye doctor later today. We will be doing school until lunch then leaving for the appointment. Enjoy your day and God bless.
I think my Christmas Cactus is confused. It bloomed around Christmas time and has decided (to our great pleasure) to bloom again. It looks so cheerful and happy in the room.
Todays temperature was a little warmer when we got up, 26 degrees. It is a little overcast but the sun is coming through. It is now about 30 degrees. I have one load of clothes on the line and am getting ready to take another. They are predicting rain for tomorrow.
On the menu for tonight is pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, and kale. I think I will do homemade biscuits with it and have cooked apples for dessert. Time for us to start school. Enjoy your day and God bless.
