I will have to break this post into three just so I don’t crash in the middle. We got to the show at 10:30 this morning to find a good crowd at the 4-H building at the State Fair Grounds. Honestly we get so busy looking that I forget to take pictures and some vendors do not allow photos.
Where does the time go? Every night I think I’m going to write a post, it’s late, I’m tired and I have nothing to write about – well, that’s not exactly true. Life on the farm is never dull. This is also what I did on Monday – two batches of pepper jelly ready for Christmas gifting.
And once again I have this question.
Honestly, four straight days of hard physical work is enough for me. I am beat! This was the scene yesterday after Reed and I picked and hauled all the pumpkins up to the house yard. Vines stretching from one end of the pumpkin patch to the other – twisted together and hard to pull. Here’s a pile of vines we got off one small corner of the patch.
Sometimes I make myself so mad – obviously I did not proofread my post this morning. Here is the Sugar Maple quilt hung up.
And here is the cloche with Cookie inside.
And good night!
Rain to the tune of 2-1/2″ this morning! And the wind blew so there’s sticks and twigs all over – every time I bend over I try to think of it as calisthenics – haha! Betty, the puppy, loves for Connie to be outside picking up sticks. I said to teach her to pick them up and put them in a pile – now that would be a trick!
Connie is working on a quilt for the next book and I started this afternoon very unenthusiastically – I’d better change my tune.
I’ve had a few days to enjoy all your comments and oh how I loved them! To hear what you’re doing and what’s going on in your lives is such fun – I suppose that’s how you must feel about reading this blog. I also appreciate knowing where you live – Connie said the same thing.
Here’s the view of the cornfield from my porch this warm September morning – the field corn is drying and turning into golden stalks.
