Outside my Window...a cold wind rustling through the orchard. Pecans are falling all over.
I am thinking...I cant believe its time to harvest pecans again. This time last year we had a 4 1/2 pound premi here. (Little Package)
From the learning rooms...helping Little Package's Mama with English homework.
I am thankful for...cool weather and Christian friends.
From the kitchen...fried chicken, black eye peas and hoe cake.
I am wearing...Liberty Overalls and a lavender long sleeve shirt.
I am reading...Pecan South Magazine....trying to get an idea on the price of pecans this year.
I am hoping...Little Package's Mama's car is not needing expensive repair work. Danny has to go see what is wrong with her car that wont crank today!
I am creating...a cleaned out area on the porch for fire wood. The temperature is expected to fall into the 30's this week.
I am hearing...gun shots. Danny is out squirrel hunting.You wouldn't believe the damage they do to a crop of pecans.
Around the house...Regular Monday housekeeping chores. Helping Danny get equipment ready for harvest. Blocking off the driveway so pecans don't get crushed. Shaking a few trees near the building so those pecans wont get crushed with all the activity out there.
One of my favorite things...a fire in the fireplace and seeing Fall related posts at all my blogger friends.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...another meeting at the hospital. Keeping the pecans picked up on and near the roads. Baking some sweets to put in the freezer. Enjoying the cold weather and the fireplace.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...nothing like the smell and taste of warm bread!
For more of the Simple Woman's Daybook....visit Peggy.
