Isn’t this a beautiful place to walk? I love walking in the leaves.
Yesterday, the girls and I went down to Jessica’s to play with the boys while she went for her doctor’s appointment. All is going well, praise God. Katie is measuring a little big though and at this time she has turned to the breech position. We are not sure what will happen with that. God is in control, this we know.
We are getting ready to go pick plums. As I mentioned earlier, a couple from church told us we could come and pick all we wanted. I will try to get some pictures to show you all. The tree is very beautiful with all the plums on it. I’m sure Grace will take lots of pictures.
My Grace took this picture the other evening. The clouds were beautiful. Thanks for the picture, Grace. Today looks as though it will be another beautiful day here in Floyd. The sun is shining, the birds are singing praises. Beautiful! I am getting ready to hang clothes on the line. So much fun. I also just finished making some homemade yogurt. I have not made this in a long time. I usually make kefir. However I am having difficulties getting it to thicken. I think it has something to do with temperature. Without the fire, I don’t think it is warm enough in the house for it to set. I had this same problem last year in the spring. So maybe I’ll just make yogurt for a while. Must be time for a change. School today as usual. Hopefully we will finish getting the garden ready to plow today. I am really ready to play in some fresh turned dirt. Get some early crops in the ground. Onions, lettuce, peas, cabbage. YUM! I don’t think I’ve told you all, but we have a mama goose setting on the island on the pond. Much excitement. We have never had one make a nest here before. We are certainly looking forward to seeing babies swimming around. We have always said when the birds were singing they were singing praises to the Lord. On another blog, I read about listening to their praise songs. I so much like that thought. So it is time for me to go hang some clothes on the line and listen to some beautiful praise music. May your day be filled with the sound of praise. God bless.
I wanted to get some pictures showing how deep the drifts had gotten. Unfortunately by the time we went back down to the barn it was almost too dark to get really good pictures. This picture shows going down to the milk barn.
This is the side of the road at the milk barn.
This picture is coming up from the milk barn.
These pictures do not show it as well as I wanted them to. There was not enough light. Anyway you can get an idea of how it looks. The road crews have not even thought about our road yet. Fortunately for us, Marvin clears this part of the road with his tractor so he can get up to his cows. If not, there would be no path cleared. The wind, praise God, has slowed down. Temperatures were in the lower 20’s. The weather man says to expect below normal temperatures for the next 10 day, so I guess none of this will be melting any time soon. Chance of more snow coming in on Monday. At least we can get the truck down to the barn now. No bible study tomorrow. No one could get here. I guess I better get busy, getting things done. God Bless.
