In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Sorry for the lack of blogging. I've been trying to keep up with your blogs by viewing them on my phone. It's my late night reading before I fall asleep! It's been a busy week.

I've been setting up my craft room out at the house we are building. You can read more about that here. My cousin came over and helped me one day and we got a lot accomplished. And, when I wasn't working in the craft room, I was helping my Shug tile the floor.

I also finished another pair of hand warmers.

I did take time out to shop for a new coffee pot. Seriously, do we need this many choices?

It came down to these two....

I went with the Bunn. Only because there are times when I need more than a cup. Might have to get the little one cup later though. I'd like something to use when I just want a cuppa in the afternoon now and then.

I also went to the farmers market in search of produce. I wanted green beans, cabbage, tomatoes, apples, watermelon, etc. I got these tomatoes, and saw some belly dancers. No other produce to be had besides peppers and celery.

Oh, and I made these cute little cupcakes. Someone asked me when I had time to crochet. 5:00 a.m. peeps, 5:00 a.m. I get up with my Shug when he goes to work and I sit and crochet, or read, or blog. It's my 'me' time.

When I showed them to My Shug he said he wished they were real. So did my friend.

So I whipped some up. No icing. I didn't have any and decided cupcakes without icing aren't as photogenic, but they sure are yummy!

My friend, Teresa, and I went to a couple of garage sales yesterday. It was so hot in her car after sitting, that she grabbed a couple of napkins to hold on to the steering wheel!

I didn't buy you can tell from the pics above....I don't need anything. But a deal is a deal peeps, and I had to get this wool green blankey for 50 cents.

And this box of Christmas balls for another 50 cents!

And I called a "blog stalker" friend of mine to ask her a question and she informed me that I missed Ripple Tuesday! (JV) I told her I know, I missed it! I didn't get to go this week. I've missed garage sailing. I missed going to the yarn store this week. I missed the Granny Bees this week. But My Shug and I talked, and we are really trying to get moved in to our house by the first of October. Hopefully it will happen this time, and hopefully things will slow down a bit when we do get moved in. Sometimes I can't keep up with it all.

Neither can the boys!

For some reason Dixie gets into Winston's cage every morning.

And Winston, he gets on the couch. (sigh)

So that folks, is where I've been and what I've been doing. What about you? What have you been up to?

For those of you that wanted seeds....I've got them ready to go. I need to take them to the post office though to make sure they don't cost more than a usual stamp.

As a little extra surprise, I'm putting in some 4 O'Clock seeds too! The flower opens up around 4 O'clock!

Same story with planting them. Put them in the ground in the fall.

I was thinking....if you don't use all of the seeds, put them in the ground somewhere! An unmowed roadside, a park, someone's flower garden! Let's just plant flowers everywhere!

They'll be a nice surprise for someone!

  1. Your handwarmers are so pretty, love the colour graduations, the crochet cupcakes definitely look good enough to eat too! x

  2. Oh, I put some moon flower seed in the ground this spring that a friend I used to work with gave me. Should I put the remainder in this fall because they never really got big enough to make it through the heat?. Looks like the craft room is coming together. Love the hand warmers and the crocheted cupcakes! I also did a little garage saleing yesterday. I got a like new canner for 4.00 and a couple of books. Used the canner as soon as I got home. My old one had seen better days! Also went to the Farmers market yesterday. Got blueberries and black berries and made three berry jam with them along with the red raspberries I stuck in the freezer earlier in the summer. Got rolls for dinner, fat noodles, small bag of kettle corn, sweet corn for dinner and a small bag of a mixture of peaches, plums and apples. Had not been to this Farmers Market before, it was a good one! Going over to check your your house blog!

  3. You are certainly a very busy lady! Your craft room is going to be amazing. Can't wait to see the end result!
