Sonny Day!

I think I caught the son at a bad time!  He told me not to take his picture and that he wanted me to take it while he was emptying the bag into the bin, but I said no!  He is so funny, he takes care of his mom pretty darn good when the hubby is not home.  I will miss him terribly when he leaves the nest. 

Not much going on at the farm or home front.  The same old things for now.  Hope you all have a wonderful night.

Project completed!



The top two pictures are the runner that I did for my best friend, and  Inny it will be on its way tomorrow!  The bottom picture is a sample that I did for a customer.  Hope you all are doing good and have a wonderful day. 

The next project is to do a few christmas towels or a couple of table runners.  We will see if I can get them done before christmas.  I do have my doubts though.

Sunday Stills ( Black and White animals)




I missed some animals, but that is ok, I will get them in the next set of animal pictures!  Hope you all had a great holiday and weekend.  Back to the old grind until the next holiday.  Which I am and am not looking forward too! 

Just a few more weeks and school will be done for this semester.  Have a great evening!

The sun this morning was pretty.  It made everything look like harvest time.   I sure hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I was pretty busy cooking and I got  a little lazy after everything was done, so, I didn't blog.  I sure hope you all realize that I sure was wishing you all a wonderful day yesterday!

I have a couple of weaving projects done, and tomorrow I will post them when I get the finishing touches done on them.   I finished a table runner and did a couple of samples for a client.  I think I will try to get some towels on the loom and get a few done for Christmas time. 

Hope you all are having a great day, by the way I do not go out on Black Friday!  I think that is the worst day of the year!  Have a great one. 

P.S.  I think the horses are evil looking  ;)

Sorry about the long hideous from blogging.  I have been having one of those moments of not really knowing what to blog and being a little lazy about going out and taking pictures that would be of interest to my bloggers. 

The hubby did another BBQ for the family Thanksgiving, we did two turkeys and a pork roast on the grill and they did turn out quite good.  The pork wasn't as good as the last one that we did on the grill, because the cut wasn't quite as good.   Everyone brought a fantastic dish to pass and that was greatly appreciated.  I was able to rent the fire house for 50 dollars because I am VP of the women's auxiliary.   It turned out to be a great day!

School is going good.  Writing essay's is my least favorite thing to do!  I am hoping that my writing abilities improve after all this writing that I am having to do for these papers!  I find that my brain does not like focusing on just one particular thing and that does show in my papers, I seem to be all over the place.    I did figure out that the dictionary is one of my favorite books! 

Not much else is really going on.  Just so you all know, Matt does have a job it is just that things are slow so he was laid off until things pick up; with his job the company bids on jobs and then the jobs have to get things set up before the company can actually go to work on the job sites.  One of the jobs he has to go on was not ready for the company yet, so that left him at home until they were ready for him.  All the other jobs that are going already had drillers working on them.   If you can decipher what I just wrote you are doing good.  See I told you my writing skills are not up to par  :)

Hope you all are having a good week.

Another day

No pictures today.  I am still here, just not feeling up to blogging much.  School take a lot of my time but now I have a nasty cold and feel like total (lack of a better word) CRAP!   Not a whole lot going on, the hubby is still not working full time he has been off more this year than any other previous year, which is not good.   The weather has improved, at least now we are seeing the sun more often.  It is getting up in the forties during the day.  Not bad for this time of year.  All animals are good, about to throw the kitten outside, she loves to play, the only problem is that she likes to climb and play in my plants, that is NOT good.   The one thing that is taboo in my world and that is nobody or thing messes with my plants!

Hope you all have a great day.

Here we goooo........

The little chicken house sets up off the ground quite a bit and we put a board up for them without steps, I wonder who forgot to put some steps there hmmm, any how they just take a step and fly the rest of the way down. 

Not much new today, went and had a new lens put in the glasses.   The lady that shapes the lenses and puts them in  the frames scratched one.  She had to order another one and  I went to have it put in.  Did my favorite job, grocery shopping, NOT!  

Hope you all had a great day.

Pebbles is growing pretty good.  She is a nuisance when she gets to playing.   I am waiting for when she is big enough to go in and outside!  
 
Now not only are we getting over a hurricane but now we are waiting for a Noreaster to head in here tomorrow night.  I feel sorry for the coast because they are going to get the worst of the storm again.  That is the bad thing about living in the north and that is we have the chance for cold along with warmth.  It is too bad that the hurricane if it had to come in that it wouldn't of come in earlier this year rather than at the beginning of the winter weather.  
 
Take care and I hope you all had a great day.

Sunday Stills



I hope everyone is having a good weekend.   The hubby took the first few pictures and I took the last one. 

Saturday, November 3, 2012

I feel like posting cows for some reason.  Getting cold here in this part of the country, well, not exactly freezing just cold.  High in the forties and down in the 20 and 30's at night.  I was wondering when the cold weather was going to start coming in.  I couldn't believe that we were heading into November without having any cold temps.  I was wrong and it is coming.   Add the wind into the mix and it feels colder than that.  

Sounds like the hubby is going to run out of work again.  Not good but we will get by.  Things are slow and having that horrible hurricane come in didn't help matters at all.   Gas is hard to come by down there.  Matt had to wait until he was headed home before he could find gas, and then he will be taking gas cans with him next week when he heads back down to the city.   It is a mess down in the New Jersey state and the city of New York.  

I have to find the time to get out in my barn and get some weaving done.   I have lots of plans but finding the time to do it is another thing.    I now have some ideas on where to sell my towels and that is a good thing.  School is school and the animals are doing good.   Not a whole lot of new things going on here at all.  Pretty much the same old thing day in and day out.   The arm is gradually getting better.   I have a hard time reaching my right back pocket but I have to do wall push ups and use a towel to try and stretch that shoulder out.    My shoulder movement that lets me move my arm behind my back is the last movement that I will get back. 

Hope you all have a great day.

Not a whole lot going on.  The hubby was laid off the last week and a half.  Finally went back yesterday. (thank goodness)  I love him dearly but he does drive me crazy when he is home too long, I don't get home work done and among other things, housework, bills ;)  

School is going ok, I am still running three A's and one B+.   It has been a hard semester though.  Seems to be a read, read, read,read, semester!   I love to read but lets get real, NOT school books.
All I have to do now is retain what I read.   That is the big thing, is if I will remember the things that I have read and learned.   My brain doesn't like to retain some things.

The weather has been pretty gloomy for quite a long time.  When the sun comes back we might all go blind.  We fared the hurricane pretty good up here but I really feel bad for the New Jersey and New York coast.    I don't know how much you folks get to see the pictures of the devastation but it is not a pretty sight.   People realize in a hurry how precious electricity is.  I am glad that I don't live anywhere near the ocean now.   I will stay here on my mountain.   My prayers are with all the people that lost their homes and any loved ones.

On that note, I will wish everyone a happy and safe day.
