Another Update

Hello everyone!  I wanted to let you all know how everyone is doing.  I came home yesterday.  The Bates clan seems to be on the mend.  A long way from better but on the mend.  Jess took Daniel to the doctor this morning.  He has a lot of congestion and a double ear infection.   Also please pray for our friends, the Horns.  As of right now, 3 out of 5 of them have the flu and one has strep throat with the flu.   I know many blogs I read have had this bug going through them.  It is horrible.

Today we are working on school and other normal things.  The girls and Hubby kept things running smoothly here while I was away.  I did come back up Sunday morning and went to church.  You all remember, Sunday was the girls big day of playing music.  They did a great job.  I hope to get a copy of the CD this weekend.  If I can figure out how to put it on, I’ll try to share some of it with you all.

Well, that’s about it.  Lunch break is over and time for us to start back on school.  Thanks again for your prayers.  God bless.

Projects

Here is Julie’s wall hanging.  What do you all think?  I think maybe for a beginner it might not be too bad.  It really was a lot of fun.  There was a little more guilting involved than I first anticipated but I think it turned out okay.  I am going to start Grace’s hopefully this week.  More snow today.  We have had more snow this winter than we have had since we have lived here at the farm-6 yrs. now.  I hope this makes for an excellent garden year.  Hopefully lots of good veggies and fresh fruit.  Fruit trees in our area did not do well last year and we really missed all those good apples, pears, and peaches.  100_2783

Another project I worked on today.  Making our own hamburger buns.  This batch turned out much better than the first batch.  At least these look like buns.  We’ll find out this evening how they taste.  I think hamburgers and fries for supper.  School has been a little slow today, sometimes this happens when we take a day off.  Of course, the snow outside didn’t help any.  The forecast is calling for another storm to come in over the weekend.  I guess this will mean no MawMaw time.  Maybe the next weekend.  Well break time is over.  Time for school.   Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting.  God Bless.
