Hello everyone! I thought I would share a few pictures from along our beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. It is lovely this time of year.
I have always loved this church sitting upon the hill. Saturday was a wood cutting day here. Chuck and his family came over to help. We brought down 2 huge trees. We got them all cut and brought home. We still have to split them though. It was a really fun day. Chuck’s girlfriend had never been part of wood cutting. (She’s a town girl). I think she had a good time though. The kids had lots of fun.
Today the girls and I went to Roanoke to pick up a few things. We went walking through the mall, which is something we don’t do very often. I stepped into Macy’s-my first time. You all remember that I have been looking for a hard anodized pot to use for cooking down my sauces. One like Mrs. Sally let me borrow this summer. Well, they had one on sale for 1/2 price!! Yeah, me!!! I was very happy. I very seldom come across deals like that. I certainly am glad I walked into that store.
Well, that’s about all that’s been happening here. I hope you all have a great day 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.
Saturday, before Grace’s party, we went up on the hill to cut wood. Grace decided (just for fun) she wanted to chop this log with the ax. She chopped for a pretty long time. This is how much she chopped.
Pretty good, considering it was splitting maul and not an ax. Then Hubby had difficulties with his chain saw and we had to load up and come back home for him to work on it.
Now you can’t see him but in the left corner at the tail gate is Shadow. This is what he is waiting on.
He is too old and too heavy to jump up into the truck bed. Hubby has to lift him up now but we would never dream of leaving him behind. If the girls are riding in the truck bed, he thinks he has to be there too. He checks out the area where we are cutting and then comes back and stays where we are. If the girls go for a walk, he goes with them. He has always taken his job very seriously.
Everyone loaded and ready to go. Hubby did get his chain saw working again. He went back up and finished getting the load of wood while the girls and I stayed down and got everything ready for the party. It was a really fun day.
