Hello everyone. It has been a busy week here in Floyd. David is gone to a conference in Vegas so Monday evening we went down to help Jess with the kids for a few days. We also had some electrical work Hubby and I needed to do for her. We finished most of it up on Tuesday. Wednesday morning, Hubby put a dimmer switch on her lights in the living room. We then left to come home.
David is having a great time in Vegas. He gave a speech the other night at the conference. He said he spoke to about 22,ooo people. Amazing. We are all very proud of him.
Today was school as usual. We had planned on going over to the Horn’s this evening but Vicki is sick. Please pray for her. She thinks she has a stomach virus. It has been very rough on her. I called today at lunch and Quentin said she wasn’t any better yet. She is never sick. Hubby has been working on cutting out the material for our chairs. I so appreciate all your advice on what color to paint them. I still haven’t completely decided yet but I have a while before he will be at that stage. I am thinking of going with the dark brown and putting chair cushions in them. That way I can change them whenever I want and today I happened to think “Wow, I could make a tablecloth for the table to match the cushions” Maybe I’ll go that route.
I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
Yesterday, Hubby, myself and the girls did some wood cutting. It was a beautiful day for outside work. Temperature was warm close to 50 degrees. Sunshine. We cut one truck load of wood, brought it home, split and stacked it. We also split and stacked another truckload that we already had cut.
Our faithful truck. We bought this truck from Hubby’s dad several years ago. He bought it new. It definitely earns its keep.
Another faithful member of our wood cutting crew.
And my Grace, who after working hard yesterday got hit with a stomach virus last night. It started about 1:30 a.m. She seems to be feeling better this evening but it has been a rough night and day. We are praying no one else gets it but I guess time will tell.
Today has been a good day here in Floyd. The girls and I decided it was definitely time to put up the Christmas tree. We had lots of fun. We put on some Christmas music and got busy. They decorated the gingerbread house. Then we put up the tree, the nativity, and a few other decorations. Simple, nothing too complex. Temperatures here have been much warmer than normal. I like that.
Our van is fixed. YEAH! Dave, Jess and the kids came up Sunday so Dave could help Hubby work on it. Thanks so much, Dave! Hubby finished getting it all put back together Monday. Monday evening we rode it to the feed store to get chicken feed and everything worked fine. Yesterday, the girls and I rode it to Sam’s. No problems!! I am so glad.
Yesterday, the boys had a terrible stomach virus. They were both very sick. Daniel was hit especially hard. He told his mom he felt like he was living in a bad dream. Today they both seem on the mend. We are all praying no one else gets it. Jess said that baby Sam was calling for his “Maw” when he was sick in the night. You know that just touches my heart. We are hoping to go down Saturday to do Christmas with them. Lots of good food planned.
Well, I guess that’s about all that has been going on here. Enjoy your day and God bless.
More winter pictures. The snow is still around. Almost all of it. Today was the first day that maybe some of it melted. Not very much. I guess it will be safe to say we will have a white Christmas. We ventured out today for the first time. It felt pretty good to just see other people. Our kids in N.C. have a stomach virus, so I guess our weekend plans are changed. Oh well, that’s life. Forecast for the weekend is calling for sleet, freezing rain, etc. so we probably would have had to change them anyway. I hope the weather holds off. We are wanting to go to the candlelight service at church. It is always so beautiful. I pray all of you will have a blessed Christmas. Enjoy family, friends and life. God Bless.
