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!

My Week - Five on Friday

I'm joining Five on Friday this week to show the fun part of my week!

1)  This's at our county fair and it's where we weave rugs one time a year, during the fair.  We have a great Pioneer Village with several log cabins and some other pioneer goings on.  However, this year, I'm helping weave the end of the warp.  I was there four hours Wednesday, and we're not finished.

2)  Wednesday evening My Shug and I went to our local park band symphony.  It was their last night of the season and it was packed. 
 I kind of always feel like we are the youngest people there!  But you know what I LOVE about this older generation that attends these park band concerts?  At the end of every concert they play the Star Spangled Banner and THIS GENERATION ALWAYS stands at attention, removes their hats, put their right hand over their hearts, and sing along.  They know.....
 There is a covered bridge in the park and I love the way they have the lights strung inside it!  Great place for a party, which I'm pretty sure is not allowed!

3)  I took a bike ride on a trail that is about five minutes, if that, from our house.  I've lived here for almost four years and I've been on this trail only a couple of times.  I've been thinking about getting a new bike, I even have it picked out, but I'm wondering.....will I ride more often than I do now.
UPDATE:  I've ridden twice this week now!

(my bike)

What I'm thinking about getting...
 This blue one in particular.  Has anyone ever owned a Townie?

 4.  My Shug and I visited our neighbor, who I think we could call Mr. McGreggor once you see his garden!!!!


He grows, veggies, and fruit.

And he has cows and chickens.  We get our beef and eggs from him.  And guess what else we got from him?

This big honkin' head of cabbage!  After he took off the outer leaves for the chickies!

4 1/2)  I'm running out of numbers!  (sorry)
...I went to crochet group!
I've been fiddling with this crochet pattern.  I don't know what I'm doing wrong but they keep coming out different sizes.  I think I'm going to have to write it out.  I might be switching from half doubles to doubles without realizing it.

AND 5)  I bought a new itty bitty computer!  11.6" big and so far I love it!  I bought it so I could take it with me instead of my big honkin' heavy one that doesn't fit in a bag.  I decided to go with this because I already know how to blog with it.  I plan on blogging more often.  We'll see how it does.

 And this goes along with #5....this guy came over today and he showed me that this computer can take selfies!!!  LOL!  Not a good picture of me, but who knew I could do that with this! 
Oh and...Him coming over....made my day.

How has your week been?

  1. Cindy, I loved your pictures. LOL. You are very talented. Wow, that fellow has a beautiful garden. Blessings to you and your family, xoxo, Susie

  2. The county fair looks like fun, 4 hours of weaving, wow! Love your photos.

  3. It looks like things are going well for you these days, yay!

  4. Back Home Again In Indiana . . . you made me realize how much I miss it, especially in the summertime :)

  5. That garden is beautiful!! It's hard to tell from the crochet photo - is it the yellow one that's smaller than the other two? It looks like the blue / red ones have doubles in the centre rounds, but the yellow one doesn't - the stitches definitely look different. Hope that helps ... it's nice pattern!

  6. So lovely to go out and about with you. I love your extension of the five things!! Hee hee! The covered bridge is lovely and I really like your bike too!! Thank you too for joining Five On Friday. I hope that you have a great August and I look forward to seeing you again in September! xx
