I WON So Excited

Today is Monday, November 2, 2009. It was just a gorgeous Fall day again today. House all opened up and smelling so fresh. The sun was shining and the gentle breeze made for a terrific day. These are the two roses that I do believe will be the last to bloom for this season. However, she may surprise me again.

I did get the pool vacuumed today, there is now a piece of PVC Pipe that has extended the reach of the vacuum to over half the reach of the pool from the top, no more getting into the pool. The temperatures this week are supposed to get down into the 40's so maybe this weekend I can close her up for the winter.

Also got six more loaves of bread made. Made my favorite the butterscotch with heath pieces. Oh it is so yummy. Had to get it into the freezer before it was all gone. hehehe

I was so excited tonight, I got an e-mail from Brenda over at Wicked Wool Gathering and I WON a pair of these awesome handmade slippers. These have come just in time for the falling temperatures. THANK YOU so much Brenda! These are just to cute.
Brenda will be listing her slippers in her Etsy shop soon. They are VERY reasonable !$! They will make terrific Yule gifts. I am thinking that even the guys would like these, well minus the pom poms of course. LOL

Here are a couple of more things that I finished up.

Rag Quilted Pillow with Lavender
Peace Dream Pillow with Lavender

I hope to have all of my new items listed tomorrow, if not Wednesday for sure. Have a full day of cooking tomorrow and have to go shopping, so don't know how much more I will be able to get done.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
