Under the Weather

Maybe I should say under the blanket.

I'm not feeling well. I suspect sinus/cold infection. I've been on the couch part of the day all wrapped up in this throw.

There is something so comforting in wrapping yourself up in the LORD's Prayer when you are sick. My SIL gave me this throw many Christmases ago. It's one of my favorite things.

I did drag myself out today to vote early. We were in and out very quickly. Glad that's done.

Good Updates

The goats are having their babies again. There are two babies in this picture. See if you can find them.

Just a couple of updates to report. Scott is home from Iraq safe and sound according to my SIL. Thanks for all the prayers offered up for our troops!

Addie is home, happy, and pregnant. I received pictures in an email from my Aunt showing the happy couple getting the sonogram done. Such good news to report!

Then on Sunday night our church gave my granddaughter, Jessica,(and Matt) a Bridal Shower after the evening service. They received many nice and useful things.

Hope all is well with my blogging buddies!

Family Reunions

About ninety people came to reconnect.

The oldest in this generation with her youngest great grandchild...

The youngest in the older generation with a grandchild...

Baby here...

A baby there...

Baby here...

Baby there...

Young and Old enjoying each other...

We do this every year. The crowd is never the same. Some have passed on since last year. Some made other plans. But whenever we get together, we eat and enjoy each other's company for a few hours before heading back home. See you next year.

Do You Like Eggs

Dian is having a give away!

She decorates eggs and has some beautiful ones on her post. Go check her out. She's giving away a kit that someone can use to make the beautiful eggs.

Aren't these pretty? They came from the chicken already colored up in beautiful blues and greens and browns.

My husband once raised these chickens, called Araucana,and we enjoyed the looks on peoples faces when we told them "that's how they come from the chicken." We don't have those chickens any longer but my husband bought these eggs from a man we know. They almost look too pretty to eat.

Don't forget to go see Dian and enter her give-away.

Back To The Fort

If you ever get a chance to see Fort Macon State Park in North Carolina, don't miss it. It's different everytime I go.

Lots of rooms of this fort are open to the public.

And make sure you climb the steps to walk around the top.

An example of some of the foods they ate.

The soldiers were told not to drag their feet and cause static electricity when they went into the powder room. Uh oh, In winter I would have blown us all to pieces.

Someone had asked in the comments on the fort post before this one, How far is the ocean from the fort. If you click on this photo, you can see the ocean from a view off the top wall.

Come to see us!
