Went and purchased my books for my last semester of school. I am actually looking forward to being done with school. I have enjoyed learning but my brain says that is needs a break, especially once I get done with Biology! I read what the professor has outlined for us and took a look at some of the book and I am not looking forward to this class at all!! I have it from 5 to 9 at night on Tuesday night and I am so NOT looking forward to it!
I put up another 22 quarts of tomatoes yesterday. We now have 44 quarts of tomatoes for the winter. I still have at least another bushel on order. We didn't get our garden in again this year, so we went to the local produce barn and bought tomatoes to put up, along with some cabbage.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

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.

Have a wonderful evening! P.S. click on the bottom picture and tell me how many frogs you see. You are only going to see a quarter of the number of frogs that I actually have!

Went to get my son's and my books for college, he was able to get his and I had to wait because I forgot to do my fasfa for the year. I did not have to do one last year but I did this year. I was not a happy camper! I have just one more week after this and the semester starts. I am so glad that this is the last semester. I don't think I will be going for a bachelor's degree. I told the hubby if I work at the weaving and the farm, I don't need to go farther, but if he wants me to get a real job (9-5) then I want to go farther in my degree.
I would love to be able to get the weaving up and going. So, we shall see if I can get the business up and going.
Have a great week.

I have been lax in blogging again. I am down in NJ again, cleaning house and doing some weaving while I am down here. I have just a couple of weeks and it will be back to school again. Not a whole lot going on around here. I pretty much do the same thing day in and day out. I put a towel warp on one of my floor looms and will be doing different towels soon. I am going to make the color combinations that everyone sent in when I did the contest. I will be weaving those on the small loom that sits on the table.
Hope you all had a good week and like they all say TGIF! Have a great weekend.

It is raining, which is good. We first get rain that doesn't stop and then we get a dry spell and now that we need rain we are getting it. Hopefully it knows how to stop.
Have a wonderful day.

I have been pretty busy getting looms set-up and ready for projects. I now have the table top loom ready, the rag rug loom is ready, and the other two looms I have to get set-up for the warp of table runners and towels. I am going to a friends house this afternoon and she has a wonderful little building that she has set-up on her little mountain and she weaves up there every summer. I am taking my little table top loom to weave with her today and I will be staying for dinner. I am so excited, it will be wonderful to weave outside in the nice sunny weather. It is supposed to be in the middle 70's today and sunny. I will be taking pictures of the wonderful view that she has.
Have a wonderful day!

I have been busy working on getting three new projects on looms. I have done all the warps, and now I have the rug loom ready to go and today I will be putting on a small warp of towels on my little table top loom, then I have the loom for table runners, and a floor loom for more towels. Did I say I was busy? Not only that, then I have the regular day to day chores and miscellaneous things that need to get done, also. Not enough hours in a day, that is for sure. Hope you had a good week.
Have a wonderful weekend! TGIF!
