Thanksgiving Day


Hi friends!

We had a good crowd on Thanksgiving day . All of Hubby's girls came and quiet a few grand kids made it to.

Just waiting for Hubby to say the blessing!

All of out grands are now working and going to college are out of college and working. On both side's of our family!

This was the building all weekend! But they are out there this morning working . Another picture tomorrow.

Hubby needed this  because the shed's attached to the main barn is about to collapse after over a hundred years!

The main barn is sinking but it's in better shape than the sheds on each side.

Hubby is already planing on adding on to this building.  A shed on each side for all his other "things".

A little bit of sewing!

See you tomorrow 

stay safe

Rocks


 Hi friends!

Putting up post but running into rock all over!

I think our place is 90 % rock! And they are having problems finding a place to put up four post for Hubby's new building.

It will be a little bigger than what he would have gotten with the metal co. and Cost about the same.

Those 600 dollar metal buildings, that a carport now is 3800 and a closed in one is over 6000 plus!

Books and P.J.'s

Hi friends!

Janet Evanovich is a great Author! You laugh out loud until you cry! But since she had had other authors helping some of her's are not up to her standards. This one however is!

"Full Bloom" is excellent!   Annie Fortenberry owns the Peachtree bed and breakfast. And her bed and breakfast is inhabited by a sprit! In the past it was a brothel! So the spirt may be one of the "good old girls"! Her renter and good friend Destiney is in touch with the spirt and is trying to get it to go to the light. Annie's husband has been missing for three years and she figures he ran off with who ever he was going with!  When she sends the handy man to big a garden space and they find bones. Her ex-mother-in--law hires a man to investigate because she is convinced Annie got rid of him.

I read this one this week end along with.

A old man is in a coma and not expected to live so they sent for his 4 sons.. In his will he says his sons must build him a coffin out of some" Rosewood" that he saved in the barn. His four son's were living all over the place.  But they all came to make the coffin for their father.. One's had a stepchild a little girl but she got out of sight of the house and got lost. I really enjoyed this book!

My P.J. bottoms got in really bad shape so I have the big idea to make me some. I have since cut those P.J.s up and will show more tomorrow!!!

Stay safe

Fall


 Hi friends!

It is finally changing down here in the South. Lots of our trees are pine and they never change color. Sun wasn't shinning when I took the picture!

We went to buy groceries this morning and a few shelves were running low! Couldn't find Hubby's crackers!

Had to just take what was there. Which wasn't much!

May get a lot worse.

Stay safe friends

Random things


 Hi friends!

Still working on this! Haven't got very far yet!

Tree's are just now starting to change!
My fabric I picked out to make a new bathroom curtain
Feeling so much better that I made me that   new bathroom curtain.
I had been dragging for months, , not sleeping much ! Maybe 2 hours a night! But my Dr. said restless legs when Hubby told him how I do in my sleep so with meds for that I am much better! It runs in my family, my daughter has it! My aunt has it! Maybe our legs are allergic to cement floors and where can you work that doesn't have cement floors?
Last Rose, the deer hasn't been by yet to eat it off.
They usually keep that bush peeled, eating all the leaves off and it's just two steps from our back porch
stay safe dear friends

Friday


Hi friends!

Well my baby got his baby back home! Just cost a couple of legs and maybe a arm! They just happened to find the parts in the USA and got them to mail them to him !  He said he had three tractors and had no idea when he would get more to sale.

It's been really good, it's nearly ten years old and till now no trouble.

We are seeing a few really close to empty shelfs in the store! Hate to see what it's going to come to!

Finished this to add to the ones needed at the nursing home. Would make a mans with bears and deer on it.

Have a great day and stay safe

Delivering Quilt

Hi friends!

Today was the day we went to hand out quilts at the nursing home, of course we weren't allowed inside so they came out and got them to give to Vet's and to people that had no family to visit them up there.
 

When we got their it was decided to wait until their Christmas party to hand them out!! And we are going to make 8 more so every one that doesn't have any family will have one for Christmas.

We made all the veterans one each!

Back to the sewing machine to make another!

Preparing

Hi friends!

My hubby is prepared!

So if the shelves are bare we will have some.

He has called all over trying to find it at a dealers but no luck.

He wants to cut that field just one more time!  Me , I would let the frost get it!!!!
