How are all of you? I've missed everyone so!
And now, a few newsie tid-bits since we last posted: (that may only be of interest to posterity:D)~It snowed!! After our boys came home from their wonderful, snowy trip up to Massachusetts, we Georgians got a little down here! Real, white snow!
~We have all been under the weather around here in the past weeks-nothing huge, but just enough to make you feel yucky and super tired all the time-ah! Goodness. Hence, the lack of keeping this poor old blog up. :) Praise the Lord we are feeling better, and we're excited about catching up with everybody, and with our own blogs and journals, and sewing, and ironing and, Ah! Wonderful!!... :D
~Our pipes are giving us fits. Laundry mats are such a blessing!
~It's cold here, and we all are missing spring and summer so terribly! Ah! For sunshine and flip flops-warm, balmy days, green grass, swimming in the creek, (and drying out on the walk back to the house through the pasture, the grass wilted and warm to your cold feet) wild flowers, sprinklers, fresh mowed grass, straw hats and white skirts...hmmm...Thank You, Lord, for all those wonderful things...And for Winter, too. :)~A hilarious picture was taken of a known eavesdropper, who knew he was known and was just being cute. :) Sam, I love your sense of humor, darling. (You'll have to blow this one up to see...)~We had a delightful ladies thrift store shopping trip a few days ago-it was so fun to go through goodwills and such with friends. And Village Pizza was incredible, as always! Sam was our dear escort. Thanks, dear, for protecting us and following 11 shopping woman around all day-you're such a gentleman!
~We're doing our first antique show this next week. Pray that we sell tons and tons of things!~I am a very blessed girl who has a very sweet older brother who brings her one of her favorite snacks, just because. :) I also liked the way the picture turned out. Sorta magazine-y. :D
~We're looking forward to having a ladies Winter Luncheon here at Calathora this weekend-God's people are such a blessing to be around! So we're having fun planning that.
~Luciano Pavarotti's rendition of 'O Sole Mio is one of the most incredible songs in the world. :) Order in music is really, truly beautiful. We're all going around pretending to sing along and having a wonderful time of it, LOL. And Andrea Bocelli's voice is exquisitely peaceful and beautiful.~This is no news, but Mama is such a beloved mother and grandmother. It is so neat to see her as a mother of young boys, and as a grandmama to young boys at the same time. Praise the Lord.~Daddy and Mama enjoyed the Marriage Conference at the Brown Barn in NC, over Valentine's weekend-we invited the married kids here on the farm over for dessert and enjoyed hearing from Par~par and Mums about the trip over coffee and torte-lots of laughs and interesting topics.
~The garden is doing wonderful! Pa~pa and his helpers are awesome! Dorothy's seedlings are beautiful. And isn't this the cutest little radish you've ever seen? And such a brilliant red.
Well, 'till later, dear readers!
With love and in Christ's Name,
Adeline, for the family
