Last post for a while...

We will be having a house-guest for the next couple of weeks...Lorelei!  Not sure what day she will come, but I have things to do.  I may pop in and do a post here and there, or I may not.  Maybe by the time I get back to blogging we will have blossoms of some sort from this year. 

Hopefully I will get some pics of her while she is here.  I picked up a new coloring book, crayons, and one of the little potholder looms, today.  You know they kind that has the stretchy nylon loops.  Not very useful as a potholder but thinking she might enjoy making some.

Last week when we were at her house I discovered something else she likes to watch on TV--How Its Made.  Does anyone else watch it?  I always find it fascinating to watch how things are manufactured.  But it always leaves me wondering who came up with all the 'machines' that does so much of the work automatically.  And who works on them....

I will visit some I am sure...and will let you know when I get back to blogging regularly.

Not newborns....

Everywhere we go, we see newborn calves...well, not just newborn, but ones very, very young.  And one or two that I think were literally just born.  But we are never at a place to stop.  So I ran across this old photo and thought I would post it.

I finished a couple crumb blocks this morn and I patched a pair of Roger's jeans this evening...the only sewing I have done in a couple or three days.  It was fun.  I actually took my time and did a neat job.   I really don't mind the patching, it is when the material gets so far gone that there is nothing left to patch to that I find patching a chore.

It got windy, or what we thought was windy as we came home yesterday, but it did not hold a candle to the wind today.  It was there when I woke and though it may have slowed down some, it was till strong.  All day long.    And it felt like it was direct from an iceberg.  I am not sure if it got above 50ยบ today.  Such a change from yesterday's shirtsleeve weather.
