Baby Geese



Here’s a picture of the baby geese.  We have 6 of them.  Ain’t they cute!  I have been hoping to get a better picture of them but so far this is as good as it gets.  We have been really busy around here.  I had to take Grace to the doctor Thursday.  She fell and we thought she might have broken a bone in her foot.  Thank the Lord, it was not broken just a sprain.   She is feeling much better today.  We went down to Jessica’s today for a short visit.  We fixed hamburgers on the grill for lunch. There is just something special about sharing food fixed on the grill with family.  I love eating outside and today was a beautiful day for it.  We also went down to a pick your own strawberry patch that is close to her house.  We got 4 gal. for us and 2 gal. for our friend Vicki.  We ate 1 of our gal. on the way home.  They were delicious!  When we got home, we went up on the hill above our house and starting cutting wood for this winter.  We got 1 truck load cut, brought it down and unloaded it.  Many, many more loads to go but it is a start.    We will split it later.  So of course, all of me is tired.  Hubby is mowing and I am ready for a shower.  Take care and God bless.

More Signs of Spring



I could hardly wait to post these pictures!  The crocus are so bright and beautiful.  The rhubarb is coming up nicely.  I LOVE SPRING!  This has been a busy week for us.  All day Tuesday spent in Roanoke at the eye doctor.  Wednesday was a fun day spent with our friends, the Horns.  Today has been a beautiful day here.  Temperature around 60 degrees.  We can hardly believe it.  I hung our clothes out on the line-they will smell sooooo good!   I plan on having london broil on the grill tonight, probably home fries and corn on the cob (from our garden last year).  I purchased some strawberries at the store today.  I usually don’t do that this early in the season but they looked so good.  Strawberry Shortcake for dessert tonight.  We usually go down to Jessica’s in early May.  There is a” pick your own” strawberry patch.  We love it.  We try to pick a lot, freeze them for winter.  We also make lots of fresh strawberry jam.  YUM!  Anyway I have a praise.  My truck is fixed!!!!  Hubby and his brother worked until dark last night but we are back on the road.  I never imagined how much I would miss that old truck until I had to jiggle my schedule with Hubby’s.  One vehicle can be a little trying to say the least.  The girls and I don’t go a lot of places but it sure is nice to be able to go when we want to.   I guess I better get busy cooking supper, Hubby is looking in the pantry so he must be hungry.  Take care and God bless.
