Hey Yall! So glad to have You join Us today on Our Front Porch. Hope Your weekend was wonderful and Your work or school week has gotten off to a grand start. Slip Your shoes off and take a little rest while We visit. I just put coffee on to perk about 10 minutes ago. So it should be ready soon.
Our weekend was good but it sure didn’t last long enough. I did some baking including this Cherry Pie. It turned out real good. We made some yummy Peanut Butter Cookies and some simple but delicious “Company Cake” as Momma use to call it ( its just yellow cake with chocolate icing but We always had some for Company when they came visiting). Brenda made Us some good ole Buttermilk Biscuits and We fried up come country ham, pork sausage and bacon to go in those.
We had a few folks by the Ranch this weekend. Our Preacher dropped by to drink a coke and visit a spell and We got to meet one of Our neighbors from down the way, Mr. Jack who is 79 years young and still going strong. Looking forward to having coffee with Him and hearing some of His stories of yesterday. Ms. Diane stopped by too when she got done feeding Horses to take a look at some of My quilts I have for sale. I have a real pretty Christmas quilt I want to finish before the holiday gets here and We get too busy.
Our project We are starting work on this week is the Front Screen Door of the Ranch House. I am hoping to strip down the existing door and add the gingerbread and white paint. With the house being 110 years old We try to keep things as original as possible. We are painting the Ranch House white and the shutters will be a dark green. I want to paint the front door something pretty that makes it stand out so if Yall have any suggestions please drop us a note.
Yall today would have been My Brother Gregg’s 64th Birthday. He watched over Me My whole life. Played with Me when I was little. Taught Me how to fish. Bought Me My first car. Walked Me down the aisle. Loved My Babies and spent a lot of time with Them. Brought Me medicine when I was sick. Helped Us with the Ranch in so many ways. I sure miss Him so. Sheila, Jake and Grace do too. I take great comfort knowing He gets to spend this Birthday in Heaven with all Our Family up there. Happy Birthday Bubba. We love You.
We have a lot going on with Our Family this week but We want to take a minute to wish Tara and Robb a very Happy Anniversary today. Best wishes to you Both on Your 4th Anniversary, May the happiness You share last Your lifetime through. As Yall make a wonderful Pair. Happy Anniversary!
