For the last few days, we have been enjoying beautiful sunsets. We thought this one was exceptionally pretty. My thanks to Grace for taking the picture. It looked like a highway and it stretched almost all the way across the sky. God certainly is awesome.
We have been doing the usual around here. Cleaning, canning etc. Tuesday evening we visited with the Horn’s. Vicki made her delicious potato soup. Madison made a tomato pie, with fresh tomatoes and herbs she had raised and dried herself. It was delicious. It tasted amazingly like pizza. We all loved it.
Today, I am meeting Mrs. Sally in “little town”. She has a stock pot she is going to let me borrow for making spaghetti sauce. I think the brand name is Calphalon. She says it is wonderful and that her sauce never sticks. I am excited about giving it a try and grateful to her for letting us use it. Mrs. Faye from our church will also meet us there in town. I picked up an outdoor canner for her yesterday and she wants to get started using it as soon as possible.
Well, I thinks that’s it for now. I have lots to get done so I better get busy. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Hello ladies! I was sitting here trying to think of a picture to use for this post. I looked out the window and there it was. BEAUTIFUL! and to think I almost missed it. God is so good to allow me to see such glimpses into His character. Obviously He loves color.
Today started off pretty warm. When we got up the temperature was 49 degrees. It has however dropped all day. Now it is 35 degrees and the wind has picked up all day. I think we are forecasted to be in the teens by morning. YUCK! Well, outside may be getting chilly but inside our fire is keeping us nice and warm.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.
Monday evening Julie and I were outside letting the chicks run free for a while and this is what we saw. God is so good to show us glimpses of His glory.
Sorry I did not make a post yesterday. As you know we went down to Jessica’s on Monday for her ultrasound appointment. Well, this baby did not cooperate. He or she decided no one was going to look that day. All kinds of movement but legs crossed. They told her they would do one more a little later on. I guess this is a shy one or stubborn-not sure which.
Yesterday the girls and I went with Hubby to help him work. He is doing the sheetrock on a remodeling job. He can do it all by himself except hang ceilings. That is just too hard to do alone. The house is in a beautiful location. If we go back with him another day, I’ll try to remember to take the camera so you all can see some pictures of it.
Today we’ll work on catching up here at home. How can a house get so dirty when no one is home? This morning was very chilly here-42 degrees when we got up this morning. Yesterday was really nice. Hubby’s van tells the outside temperature and it was 70 degrees when we left the job site yesterday around 3:00.
What a wonderful way to start a Sunday morning! Sitting on my front porch, drinking a cup of coffee with my favorite man in the whole wide world, and looking at this special presentation from the Lord. Beautiful! We had a really good weekend. We watched the movie “Fireproof” Saturday evening with some friends from church. Then our Sunday School lesson was on marriage. This was not planned to be that way-just our Lord at work. I said we had an unplanned marriage retreat weekend. We started the day with the beautiful sunrise and then on the way to church last evening the Lord gave a beautiful sunset to look at all the way to church. (of course, I did not have the camera with me then) How good is the Lord we serve?
Here is a picture of my first attempt to make english muffins. They turned out pretty good-a little dense I thought but good. I used a recipe I found on line to make the dough in my bread machine. Next time I think I will try making them by hand to see if they are different. I am trying really hard to make as much of our food at home as possible. This really lowers the grocery bill and of course is healthier for us and usually tastes much better. Well enjoy your day and God bless.
I thought everyone might enjoy a little sunrise. God decided to sent us this beautiful sunrise yesterday morning and I certainly was glad. Whenever I see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, it always reminds me of the majesty and power of God. I think we all need a little reminding sometimes. Nothing much going on here. School as normal. Things are getting back to our normal routine. It was very cold here this morning. Lots of wind. The actual temperature was about 14 but the wind chill was much colder. Hopefully, weather permitting, Jess and Dave will come up this weekend. I need me some MawMaw time. She will be going for her ultra-sound soon to find out if the baby is a boy or girl! I’ll let everyone know when we know. The girls are wanting me to play a game with them before school starts. I better go. Playtime awaits. God Bless.
