Greetings! I keep seeing posts and pages of early Fall decorating, many excited about the onset of their favorite season. We had nothing but cold and rain all of June, a nice July and part of August, and I've had a heater on for a week. Six weeks was about all I got this year of my favorite season. My house is 64 degrees and I need a sweater in the evening. Morning shoppers have jackets on! Ridiculous. High temps coming this weekend but it's too little too late. It's over and I'm about as crabby as I can be.
My fingers are numb again from my neck after a chiropractic treatment. Hard to hold a needle between the numbness and cold but I'm plugging away at the house. I do the first half of the stitch horizontally using the sewing method, and then the second half vertically. Big areas like this end up looking like corn rows if I follow the same route. A few houses in prior samplers have obvious "rows" going two different directions when I did large horizontal sections and then narrow vertical ones, like between windows. The method works very well for my tension.
The kids have been giving me trouble. Tiny little Missy Midge took off after the baby turkeys, even though big mama bird was right there. Nitzy has spit out and drawn blood three times during a worm pill fiasco. Still didn't get it down. The pill plunger is all the way back but he makes sure he hocks it up every time. Filthy dirty Bud will not leave me alone and obviously the flea stuff isn't working.
The fawns are not around as much but the turkey moms and poults are. Probably because of the very wet and cold spring, they must have lost their first brood and had another because they are very small for this time of year.
The squirrels are happy that without the fawns visiting, there is more bread for them.
No decision on the car yet. I am kind of upset that I am losing my bright yellow Escape. 2003 and it's been perfect, still is. Carole always got her cars from my Dad and he was always upset at what they looked like a year later from neglect. I am already feeling that. I am still considering leasing a mid size sedan for her but what about after the lease ends? One of us may be needing a new car then and I can't do two payments. I hate decisions. And you know I can't make them.
And this pic is for friend Krissy B.
Have a nice calm relaxing weekend!
