Pile it up

Now that the wood shed is just about empty, it is time to fill it up again for next winter.   We had one load delivered and we will have at least another one delivered in the next month or so.   Work is never done.  

Not a whole lot going on.  The weather has still been improving, the snow didn't last a day.   That is one thing about this time of winter, any snow that falls usually doesn't last long.   We have been having anywhere from 50 to 70 degree weather.   I am not going to complain too much.   I am glad just to see the warmer weather.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Going down

This was the sunset yesterday.  It has been a pretty nice couple of days.  It has been up in the 70's and the winds have been blowing like crazy.   It sure dries the ground a lot quicker.  The only thing is that the rain is coming back again tonight and then back down in the 50's for the next few days.   Mother nature is teasing us.

I am looking forward to spending some time in the saddle this year and working with the horses more.   Now that school is done, I am hoping to spend a little more quality time with them, when I am not doing the weaving.

I have bought quickbooks to try to do all of my book work on for the farm and weaving.  I was told that it isn't too bad to navigate around in.  I am used to doing things on paper, it will be different doing it on a computer program.   I guess that is why I went to college, and that is to learn how to do all this business stuff, and now I will be able to put it to work.  (the college education)

Have a great week.

Saddle-Up


I want to say thank you to JB for making me a new flank billet for my saddle.   He did a fantastic job.  The only thing left is to get a few screws and nails replaced at the point of the jockey and the cantle, then I will be ready to ride in my favorite saddle again.  Don't worry, JB, I don't care if it matches or not!   I  probably didn't even need to replace it, but I figure it was on the saddle when I bought it, so I might as well use it!
Now that spring has sprung, I will be getting some riding time in.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Cover up



The curtains are done, nothing fancy!  If you click on the picture you will be able to see the pattern.  I have had this fabric,that I wove at work, for quite some time.  The hubby told me I better get some curtains in the room; where he usually gets dressed.   We would hate to have someone walk onto the porch at the same time he is getting dressed!   The back porch door is the one that everyone goes to when they come to visit.  We hardly ever use the front  door.   I don't want to scare anyone either! (if you know what I mean)

We got another load of  logs in for fire wood.  We were getting pretty low on the wood, good thing the season is almost over!  I will post some pictures of the pile tomorrow.

Bye for now!

What's knew!


This is the next table runner that I am starting.   I was pretty amazed on how well the last one sold.  The client said that I didn't charge enough and he gave an extra 30 dollars.  I will post a picture once I have a little more woven.

I am still lacking on the blogging.  I find myself with not a lot to say, therefore, I don't blog.   I will keep blogging but they will not be regular postings.  When I feel that I have something to report, I will blog.  I will try to keep up with you.  Don't feel bad if I don't post.  I am reading your blogs all the time, just don't have the time sometimes to comment to you all.

Have a wonderful week.
