I can't believe it is Sat. night already.

It seems like the weeks are going by faster and faster. I mean it is almost november. Then it will be Dec. then I will turn 40. EEEEK! Are you really only as old as you feel? lol. By Sat. night I feel 90.

Today was nuts. We were short handed and busy. But isn't that how it usually goes? But we got thru it and Tomorrow is a day off. Yeh!

I know that I have said it before but I am going to say it again. I hope to get out bathroom done tomorrow. We have to touch up some paint and hang a beam in the ceiling. SOOOOO, cross your fingers. I am so anxious to show some pictures. But I want it to be finished first.

I hope whatever you find to do tomorrow will make you smile.

Hey! These trees grew overnight.

Well, my little trees went in pretty easily. I had to outline them with the light blue. I am not sure if it looks right. I planned to continue the whole sky pattern around the trees, but then you couldn't see the tree branches. So I unhooked and used the light blue. What do you think. Is there more unhooking that should take place? I need to draw another sheep. The current one looks goofy. I also have to come up with a pattern to do in the 3" border. Maybe scallops or half square triangles. Who knows. I just might wing it.

Topic change: Isn't it a bummer that we don't get to continue to feel like we are twenty? I swear my knees have aged about 30 years. I went to get out of my car after driving home from my 10 hour day on my feet and I walked like a 90 year old. My dear husband thought it was very funny. So uncool. Of course it is a totally different story when he has to walk alot during his work day. His famous line is he was on his feet all day. lol... This is intended to be funny. I hope I don't sound bitter or grouchy.

Well, it is time to hook alittle. I hope you have a great weekend. Do something fun....

Anyone Grow Pumpkins?

I was toying with the idea to grow some pumpkins next year. I had so much fun shopping for them this year. I swear it was like Christmas or something. I didn't get near as many as I would have liked. I thought I could save the seeds and plant some next year. Do you need alot of room? Can you make them climb onto something? Sorry if these questions seem silly. I am basically a city girl folks. But I have been told that there is no such thing as a stupid question. I don't know if I buy that last statment myself. I am pretty sure I have heard a few. lol.

I think I am off to go do some hookin". Rug hooking that is. I hope everyone is having a good night. I can't believe it is almost November. Christmas is gonna be hear before you know it.

I put up a fence today

Welllll, maybe not a real fence but I did make a fence on my current rug project. I haven't worked on this for a long time. I had a wonderful day today. Larry had to work on some equipment for work. He did this in our driveway, soooo I set up a chair out in the sunshine with him and started hookin'. I got quite a bit done. This evening was hard.
This evening we went to calling hours for a little 3 year old boy. I had never met him or his parents. Larry and I are friends of his great grandparents. He had been sick for some time. I am not sure the perticulars. I was told that they had just taken him to a check up two weeks ago and were told that he should be past a critical time. They always said if he could make it past three years he would probably live a semi-normal life. What a shock this must have been. I had never seen a baby coffin. His parents looked like kids themselves. I just have such a heavy heart for them all. The little boy has a twin brother. I have mentioned all this so that if you think of them please keep them in prayer. The funeral is at 12:30 tomorrow.
I am sorry if I put a burdon on your heart. I just feel so bad for them. I am so blessed. I am ashamed at what I consider to be a big deal. God bless you.
