It's snowing...

It's cold, snowing, and the wind is blowing. Sigh... of sighs... I'm so not in the mood for snow and cold. I'm more in the mood for sun and warmth. On the bright side (one must always look there) this snow is good for the grass. It's like getting free fertilizer! I'll take it in moderation.

I learned a good bit about our Modular home today. I'm halfway in the thinking that we need someone other than this "new guy". At least they are being honest with me. Which is more than anyone else has been, or so it seems.

Nothing much else is going on here. My day has not gone as planned though. Oh well there is always tomorrow... Tomorrow, I'll luv ya, ta morrow it's only a day A WAY!!!! There ya have my ode to Annie! Read it an weep. Anyway I hope to be able to start on my new quilt TOMORROW. I had great plans for today but the day is gone and chores will begin in T-minus 5 minutes and counting.

I've been doing some rereading over at the "Journal". I miss my little blog. Sniffle... However I don't feel comfortable writing over there for the time being. Anyway... you know... I've done an awful lot of living these past few years.

I cried over Sadie's passing, thrilled over passed baby bovines, forgot I had the flue... Where did the time go?

Well I'm off to start on chores. It poured down rain last night so it should be a muddy mess. I know it was last night but I couldn't see it since it was dark. Seeing is believing.

Having fun...


At least I'm trying too anyway. Maybe when I have more time this weekend.

It makes me want to cry...

How people can be so So SO... I don't know. I never knew we were so hard to please. I guess we are just about the most horrible people out there, after all we just want to be able to live in our new home. Not to yet again be put off and delayed any longer.

I wish someone could explain it all. How can people call you "the WAVE" and then turn on you, wanting to push you into failing? I don't understand... but then I don't understand Christians who are like this. If anyone can explain I would be grateful! :)

Other news, we've had new babies around here. Daffy (H), White Tip (he's like a little shark), Trace (B), and a new heifer who's yet to be named. We are about to wrap up spring calving.

On a good happy note... the frogs are chirping!!! IT'S SPRING!!!!!! And almost a month earlier than last year. :) I'm happy.

For awhile

For a while I'll be doing my main blogging here. This was supposed to be my crafting and hobby blog... Oh well. With the resent turn of events I would feel better blogging from here.

SO this will be the EVERYTHING blog for now.

I did get everything I wanted to done on Saturday. I even made cup cakes! WOO HOO!! I know big deal, but for me it was. Lately I feel like every thing I go to do just drains me. Why? Who knows... all I know is that I'm drained before I even get the day really up and going.

Such plans I have. And by mid morning they seem such an obstacle to over come. I would much rather sit and read or if I felt that it wouldn't be a sin I would take a nap. Or just lie down and rest. Well it's almost chore time.

Busy days...

It's been a busy past few days. Mainly with the bovines in my life. Sewing as always takes the back set.

However my learning to knit is going much better than crocheting. Thankfully... Other than it's going to take me a month of Sundays to finish a simple dishcloth. Grr... I will persevere even if I add or loose a stitch here or there. After it's a learning process.

On tap for today... free a trapped sewing machine from a pile of clutter. After that who knows... either knit a row, read, sew... it all depends on what the day will bring.

Happy Valentines Day!

More Blankets...

I do believe everyone we know (OK slight exaggeration) is having a baby this this year. SO I've been sewing up blankets to beat the band. I have though decided this... there is going to be NO more satin backed blankets! ARGH

They have got to be the most frustrating thing to sew in life. I cut and measure two, three, four times or more and they still will NOT fit right. What am I doing wrong here?! I don't know it's just more than I can take at this time.

Yeah it's been a while...

Things on the farm-side have taken time over anything and everything else. I did manage to get the baby blankets cut and surged. Yippee Skippee for me!!! *patting myself on the back*

I've given up crocheting for the time being and am concentrating on learning to knit. I can do the knit stitch and purl stitch. I just can't get the whole knit one purl one ribbing. Like I'm really going to be making a sweater anytime soon. However, it has gotten me thinking about wool. And what is the carrier of wool? More than likely sheep! *BG* I've always wanted to try my hand at spinning. Of course that would take time and equipment. Plus buying the sheep since I happen to like lamb chops on the grill AND Lamb Italian sausage.

I just don't know if I'm up to the work of sheep again. This will take much thought and prayer.
