Virtual Boutique

Last year a few of you said, “Hey, there should be a ‘virtual boutique’ for those of us, who don’t live in Ellensburg!” So…it got me thinking…as I got ready for our boutique here, what if I sewed more… …and so I did. You folks stretch me.  It only took me all day to figure […]

After School

Our schools here are run a bit differently than those my children attended.  The kids here get more music, more recess and more library.  Two thumbs way up! These schools also have school buses and transportation is a huge department.  The buses that go out into the country don’t ‘go’, until they have all ages […]

My Sewing Room In Pictures

My sewing room is finally, just that, a reflection of me and a hard-working room.  It really started by removing the book cases (I hated) into the family room.  This move put them where they belong, pulled the family room together and now I LOVE them!Just goes to prove ‘right thing-right place’. This meant the […]

Line Item

It has happened. I believe it is now official. It is not because we have more critters than people sharing our evening. It is not because My Loving Spouse and I have just recently both been listening to the same local (ie. Country/Western radio station) and saying words like, “That’s a good station!” It is […]

Quilters Hug With Fabric

Quilters hug with fabric. In celebrations of joy and in struggles, that is often our journey, my response is to hug.  When the loved one is not near, the response is even stronger to sew.Sew a quilt, that I hope will express my love. Sew a quilt designed uniquely for the receiver.  This one is […]

Pumpkins Best

If you’ve read this blog for a nano second, you know I have a ‘thing’ for pumpkins.  I was trying to grow quantity over quality, because in truth, there really is no bad pumpkin.  I planted ‘Jack-o-lantern’ size and small.  I thought small would be smaller, but of course, they are perfect, after all they […]

Painting A Cow

The hardest part of painting a cow, is getting her to stand still.  The paint, of course, can be purchased at Amazon.  No, I am not painting Agnes.  She is perfect just the way she is, just a perfect black cow.  (Well, she’d be a tiny bit more perfect if she were ‘in the family […]

Agnes on Sabbatical

I took a walk down the road the other day.  I had some produce to deliver to Agnes.  Agnes has been on sabbatical this summer. Black Angus Cows have really one job, which is to produce more Black Angus Offspring.  Agnes took this summer off.  All you cattlemen, should now take a collective gasp.  However, […]

Grandparents Needed

This might sound a tad ‘bossy’, and because I did not fall far from my mother’s ‘bossy tree’, I do try to be careful.  (Yes, it is true.  My mother had nicknames such as, “that bossy blonde” and “Bossy Aunt Betty”, just to name a few).  I am going on record here as not being […]

Messages From The Pig

A few years ago, I talked My Loving Spouse into making some chalkboard pigs.  I LOVE ours!  It hangs over the kitchen sink, where a window should be.   Apparently, the pig speaks Chinese. We leave our special/random messages for one another. I think everyone should have a pig.We did have to glue his tail […]

Marital Trust

I have been painting the barns.  Well, I have been painting as far as I could reach comfortably with a ladder (a tall ladder), a paint sprayer and a can of wasp spray.  All of which did not get the job done, enter My Loving Spouse with a plan.  We attempted the plan yesterday……it didn’t work. […]

August 31st.

The end of summer is in the air, in a way I’d never experienced in the first half century of my life living in Southern California.  There, the end of August meant very little, other than the prospect of a month or more of continued hot weather. I have stopped watering the vegetable garden in […]
