Good evening everyone!!! hope your friday was a good one..I got totally sidetracked today..but it was all good..I got 4 packages mailed off..only 3 more to work on..:)..geez where does the time go..well yesterday I decided instead of sewing..I was going to work on the yard and get it done..so that small portion behind the fence inbetween the garden..well it needed to be ripped out..so shovel and wheelbarrow in hand..I went to work..it was a bit warmer and I was wearing out quickly..but I trudged through and got-er-done!!!..even had just enough bark in the back of the truck for this..now all I need to do come payday is buy big square brick pavers to lay on top..it was getting so hard to mow this little piece..so out it came..
I was also able to recycle and used the grass by the big tree along the fence line..it is covered with green fencing to keep the dog off of it..he jumps by that tree as the Raccoons live in that tree and he has ruined the grass there..(he is developing a trail there)..so hopefully it will take off and start growing..looks much better there now..so hopefully no muddy footprints come winter.;)so that is how I spent my afternoon..4-1/2 hours worth..one more thing to check off my list..;)today would have been the better day for it as it has been overcast all day..my kind of working weather I tell you..;)
This morning when I opened the shades for the day..I saw a cute little squirrel eating out of the mailbox..and another on top of the shed waiting its turn..(click on the photo so see them)..
and Mama raccoon came by the yard..probably on her way home to feed her babies in that big tree..we have 4 deer around her as well..2 young bucks and 2 females..they are eating my next door neighbors plants...luckily with Tucky in the yard..they don't bother us too much.;)
This was Lucy Goosey last night..one arm resting on the table...the rest laying on my lap..
she started to fall asleep but the camera woke her up..she does love getting her photo taken..she is a little stinker..we love her.;)
well yesterday out of the blue..My blogging buddy/friend Maggie sent me a little care package..just because..you gotta love getting surprises in the mail..she is such a sweetheart and spoils me rotten..she sent this cute little vintage sunflower...could make a pillow out of this..or sew it on a towel..;)
these little wooden blocks are on the front porch on a shelf...they certainly fit my country theme..
and it is truly cat country around here..so this sign is on the front porch too.;)
and last but not least..I love this sign..it is in the laundry room..looks great where I put it..Thank you again Maggie for thinking of me like you do..you are the best..:)
Well that is it for me today...waiting for hubby to get home and hopefully take me for a walk..will see if he's up to it..then gotta fix dinner..not sure what I am going to make..
my girlfriend Sarah just came by and brought me some cheese curds from Idaho..oh I have never had them before..and they are yummy..gotta watch that though..cause I could eat them all..take care and have a wonderful weekend..our church is having a ward/picnic at the beach tomorrow..I am going to make my pumpkin chip muffins..cause I am craving one.:) it will be nice to visit with everyone from church..I love the members there and its at the beach...;)
