I even had to look up today’s date, that’s how out of touch I am with the world. Yesterday we had probably at least an inch of rain – yes, rain! And then it got colder and this was the scene out my window.
See that big puddle behind the pickup? Rain created that and now it’s ice. Yikes! Ice under everything. Travel last night was so treacherous – cars were just creeping along on the highway. It was heavy wet snow but if the wind comes up, even that snow can be blown around creating blizzard-like conditions. Sigh. Weather in North Iowa.
This is today.
One of our readers from South Dakota, Mary W., has introduced me to Heartland Docs, DVM Saturday night at 9 pm on Nat Geo Wild. The two vets are a married couple named Ben and Erin and each show is a trip along with them or in their clinic showing them treating different animals. Some I have had trouble watching but it’s all in a day’s work for them. I wish they were my vets but they live in Nebraska so I guess that’s not possible. Erin is very tall and I was not surprised when she said she played basketball. Last week their family adopted two little dogs! I can’t tell you how much I love this show and these people. Mary W. Was in the show last week as she, Ben and Erin captured a feral cat in Mary’s garage who needed dental treatment for an infected tooth. Tune in on Saturday night if this sounds like a great show to you!
I got all my blocks made for Friendship Starter so I put them aside and started cleaning my sewing room. When I can’t see anything beyond the piles of stuff, I simply have to stop and sort and clean. Here’s a before picture.
I was overwhelmed but started on the sewing island first. I was mopping the floor at 1:15 Sunday am and hope to continue working today. I have found so many small UFO’s on the island that I’m going to tackle as soon as I finish the cleaning and sorting. I’m moving Dianne’s litter box to the bathroom – and she’d better get used to it! I’m also putting a dog bed under Island close to my chair. Big changes are coming! Ha! Here’s a wagonload for fabric that goes back to the shop – I try to bring in fabric for only my current project. Looks like I got carried away on Friendship Starter, doesn’t it?
Here are some wonderful finishes.
And here is Harvey with the Easter Egg trousers – isn’t he handsome?
Harvey, in two sizes, is available for $10 sent to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave,Garner,IA 50438. He will be available until Easter. Remember how many of you made Harvey last year? Connie and I loved them all!
On Sunday and Monday nights I watched the American Dog Rescue Show on the Hallmark channel where they had categories like, Best in Snoring, Best in Ears, Best Underbite, Best Wiggling, Best Special Needs and more – I absolutely loved it! Did any of you watch? What did you think?
Saw this gal online – I think she or he was in the Best Ears category – obviously!
Remember these little pots I planted?
This is 4 days later!
Wow! Those are some fast growing oats and the cats are loving them. I took the big dishpan full of grass to the chickens and planted more. I need more potting soil before I can continue planting which means I’d have to go to town which isn’t going to happen today. Here are the new pots.
Denise and I are trying to send an email to all of you but we’re running into trouble sending a mass email. We’ll get it to all of you in time.
Like I said, there’s no news from the farm and the person living on the farm with two compromised knees! I love to hear from you however – makes my days going faster! And just a question – are all blogs supported by ads? I’m just curious.
