This was yesterday and today I’m sure there’s nothing left but the string! Several readers sent me a video of chickens on a swing.  Of course I showed it to Rick but he hasn’t run right down to the barn to build that yet – ha! Cold here again today but I think the warm […]

It’s cold in North Iowa – below zero this morning.  The snowstorm landed on top of us before we even knew we were under a warning and we got about 8 – 10″ of new snow.  Here’s the view out my window. I saw this idea on Pinterest to entertain the chickens and today there […]

Actually it’s basketball Saturday with many games taking place today.  Iowa State will play West Virginia for the Big 12 Championship this afternoon at 5.  In the meantime I’m binding tablerunners for the sale.

I hope I don’t start to do lots of stupid things – as I get older.  I think you remember yesterday’s post – I acknowledged the day as Ash Wednesday but last night when my phone rang at 6:04 my recurring nightmare came true.  It was the choir director calling to ask where I was […]

Ash Wednesday

March 1, 2017

We have a church service tonite and choir practice afterwards.  Wow – it’s already Lent! Yesterday was a much better shopping day.  Someone asked for information about the sale on April 1.  This is all the info I know. Just finished this book – a nice little story.  No suspense or action but very sweet. […]

Doing 3 things at once

February 27, 2017

I’m watching The Bachelor which doesn’t require much concentration.  I never watched in the past but my niece Jenny watches and texts with her mom, my sister Becky, so then I got involved, too.  Pretty funny at times. I am going to quilt this little tablerunner tonite.  Connie and I are participating in a vendor […]
