I thought this was a picturesque barn, complete with split rail fence. This was taken on another church outing.

Mast General Store

10/18/2005 10:37:07 AM

This is a General Store in NC, that has just about everything! It looks more like a house than a store.

This is a functioning old-time Post Office.

Complete With Dog

This store even has its own dog! We seem to gravitate to them.

We have to have a picture of our group.

Grandfather Mountain

10/18/2005 1:59:56 PM

This is Grandfather Mountain. Look at the outline and you'll see his face, complete with nose and prominent chin.

The trees were changing colors much earlier in NC than here in Tennessee.

Quilt Group

10/19/2005 11:28:14 AM

This quilt is on hold while we get some craft items together for the Fall Harvest Sale for our church. The sale provides income for the United Methodist Women. The pink quilt (top) is one I bought at an auction in Missouri several years ago and donated to our group. We can auction it next year as a fund raiser.

Defective Paint
Defective Paint

This is what defective paint looks like! It looks like something out of a Halloween horror movie. I took the paint and rolled it into a ball the size of a tennis ball and tossed it to the salesman at Lowes. His comment? "I knew I should have gotten off at 1:00!" He knew we were comming and that we had a problem, but never expected this! He gave us a gallon of their best paint and we finally got the wall done.

Peeling Apples

10/21/2005 9:37:19 AM

It took us all day Friday to peel and precook the 36 bushels of apples. If we hadn't pre-cooked them some, it would have taken too long on Saturday for the apples to cook in the kettles.

We got started early in the morning (6:00 AM) on Saturday to get the apple butter cooking.

Stirring Apple Butter

10/22/2005 8:36:52 AM

Apple Butter must be stirred constantly for about 8 hours or it will scorch. Here is a webpage that pretty much explains the apple butter making process that we use.

Even the kids got in on the action.

It tastes so good!

Not everyone chose to stand!

The Canning Line

10/22/2005 2:10:45 PM

When the apple butter is done the canning is done at a frantic pace. We ran out of lids and our Pastor, Paul, made a run to the grocery store. Then we ran out of rings, and he had to make another run to the store. I don't think we'll let that happen next year!

While the apple butter is being carried to the canning line it still has to be stirred.

Washing the Dishes

Now this is the way to wash the dishes!

The 5 pumpkins on the left light up at night. Part cheesy, part real.

Another basket of violas, this one blue, hanging on the west side of the house.

What could be more perfect than this?

Our Church

Our church looks so pretty, especiallly with the red dwarf nandina (the red plants beside the steps).

Some trees just naturally have a pretty shape, like people, I guess. This one is gorgeous.
