The pictures are of the hops that the hubby planted in pots and left by our strawberry arbor (that didn't produce strawberries!)

I have been pretty busy for the last week.  I canned tomatoes, helped the hubby put up cabbage to make sauerkraut.  Have been getting ready for school next week, the son and I.  We are getting ready to add a couple more critters to the farm.   We are getting a miniature mule and a pony, from a couple that had to get rid of all their animals because of having to move.   They are in pretty bad condition, and it will be a chore getting them to the way I think that they should be.   I really had some misgivings about getting more animals but the hubby talked me into it.

Just one more semester and I will be getting my associates degree in Business Administration.  I have my mother in law and aunt telling me that I should go further in my schooling.  I am still undecided.

 I finished my table runner and I will have pictures to show soon.  I still have towels and rag rugs to get woven.   I will be working on the towels now and hopefully get some ready for my client and of course to send out to Linda for winning the contest.   I will have to learn to let everything else go and work when I get the weaving business up and going.  I have been slacking, to get other things done, like school and summer things done.  I have to learn to go out to the barn when coffee is done and not leave until the weaving is done for the day.  Treat it like I am going to work at a real job!  I don't consider my weaving a job but as something that I love doing on the side.  That will have to change if I really want to get more business and make a living at it or try making a living at it.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening.

Yes just like a job, punch in and stay at work! It is hard to do when you work from home:)

You don't need to feel rushed on my lovely prize. I know you will get it to me so don't add pressure in your already over loaded day. :)

Looks like you have the makings of a microbrewery!
