Yesterday was a day for just me.  I had my hair done, had a pedicure done (very first time ever), and then I had a manicure done.   If you have never had a pedicure done, I recommend it (even if you only do it once!).   I have heels that crack in the winter and hands that do the same thing.  So, I decided to have it done.   I can't believe how soft my feet feel.

The hubby came home yesterday (with a cold).  He says he is feeling better today.  We were going to spend the day cutting wood for the winter.  Sounds like he might wait for the weekend to start that though.  He did mention the state fair.  We shall see, the kids are both working and it is a day that is just us and no one else!   Today is Friday and I know some are always looking forward to that day.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Just a humming.

I have been wanting to get pictures of the hummers, but keep forgetting the camera.  I finally had the camera in hand and the hummers decided, that I had a camera and they were not going to pose for me.  I love listening to them buzzing around me, while I am weaving.

It has been a pretty boring week so far.  Just weaving and enjoying the wonderful weather we have been having.  Hope you have a great day.

Veggies plus

This is one of my favorite places to go, when I don't get enough vegetables from the garden.  This is the Carrot Barn.  A couple of years ago, I didn't get tomatoes because of the blight.  I went and bought a few bushels of them to put up.  This year, we didn't get any sweet corn put in and I have gotten a bushel and put it up. I am thinking of making another trip for a couple more bushels of corn.  In the fall they have the best apple cider donuts!

Yesterday, I took my little loom outside on the patio and did some weaving.  It was awesome, I love being out on my patio.  It is supposed to be another beautiful day today.   I think I will do the same thing.   I have a radio out on the back porch that I turn on.  Nothing like being able to work outside when it is nice and listen to some country music at the same time.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

So tired

Sara is all tuckered out.  She had a hard day at the groomers.  She decided to sleep on mamma's feet on the way home.

The weekend is over and now it is time to go back to work or sometimes it is time to finally take a nice long breath.  Some folks work harder on the weekends than they do during the week.  We didn't, it seemed like it was a weekend, that not much was really accomplished that needed to get done.  There is always next weekend.  I think sometimes that we all need to say the heck with doing much and just taking a nice long breath and enjoy the weekends.

This week is going to be filled with weaving and trying to get some outside work done that is way past needing to get done.  Hope you have a great week and as some would say ( take time to smell the roses).Image result for image of roses

I am hoping to have a new home for Thunder the mini mule.  I was thinking of selling Scout the pony, but I have actually grown attached to him.  So, he gets to stay.  Thunder is one that has been very hard for me to get attached to.  He is one of those that needs someone with a really firm hand and you have to watch yourself around him.  He likes to kick out when you least expect it.   I need to downsize and Thunder is the one that has to go.  I have to make sure that he goes to a home that will take care of him though.  I put a lot of time into getting him looking healthy and happy.

Been pretty darn hot these last few days.  Not doing anymore outside than I have to.  Will be indoors weaving and going through some cupboards that  have needed going through for quite some time.

Hope you have a great day.

Tractors, Engines, oh my!

The show was great!  It was held in Roseboom, NY.  Lots of John Deere tractors, some International tractors and just about anything you can think of.  Not to forget, some engines.  The video is of the biggest one there, it was pretty impressive.  Shook the whole ground and smoked a lot.  This was our second show this year and we made lots of new friends and hope to do at least one more show this year.  All we need to do now is find ourselves a trailer large enough, so that we can haul the engines in one trip instead of two.  The darn things are not cheap though.

Hope you had a great weekend.  Ours was busy but fun.  Hope your week is good.
