Saturday brought rain, sleet and slush which froze overnight on just about everything.
Colder weather is arriving later in the week so this ice will be with us for awhile. This is what our yard looks like today – a rough skating rink!
If I fall and break a bone, who will take care of everybody? If Rick falls and breaks a bone, I’ll have to take care of him, too. I am very careful when I walk outside.
This was just last Friday – the goats were enjoying the yard and each other. It’s funny that they can get along while outside together but put them all in the barn in the same pen and all of a sudden there’s a pecking order leaving some of those on the low end standing outside while those in charge guard the door. Why can’t they all just get along????
While the chickens were locked in the barn during the weekend inclement weather, I gave them a head of cabbage to break the boredom – it took only a few hours to eat the entire head!
Hazel stays real close to Reed when he’s here.
This was taken at supper time Friday night – we sewed till 10 pm! Church was cancelled on Sunday morning and I was not able to get to his house to get help with the photos. At least I THINK I got our huge photo deleted but can’t find our logo.
I finally got my new glasses this morning – I have not been able to see this well for quite a few years. I hated the reading glasses – what a hassle!
I just finished quilting the two red and white chair covers and hope to bind them tonight.
I put them both on the machine at once with one piece of backing which worked great.
Connie is finishing up the very last quilt for the second new Civil War book with Martingale. She can’t wait to get back to her bright fabrics again. A steady diet of any one color palette gets boring – fast.
Please be getting your book titles together because I’ll be asking for them in the next day or so. That month went fast, didn’t it.
Here’s Hazel having a nap on my lap last night while I watched Garth Brooks at Notre Dame Stadium. Wasn’t it fun to sing along?
I’ll be posting some info about the Bullseye Quilt Along starting January 1. We will also have a couple patterns available for January. So that’s it for today – thanks for hanging in there with me!
