Oh What A Week

Today is Thursday, August 12, 2010. After three gorgeous, gorgeous days, the rains and humidity once more came. Those three days of low humidity and a wonderful breeze were truly beautiful days.

I am so excited and honored, I won third place in Marie's generous giveaway! Doing the happy dance! Thank you so much Marie! Can you believe it? I am going to own one of Marie Segal's pieces! If you have never seen her work, check her etsy shop out Marie Segal. Some serious eye candy here!

This week has gone by so fast I can't believe that tomorrow is Friday already! It has been a productive week. Was able to list about two dozen items in my etsy shop, lots of things finished up and a couple of more started.

This week I was blessed to receive a package from Janie aka Mother Moon. She is so sweet and offers so much wisdom. George said that lady really knows how to make jam, there are peach pieces in here and they aren't all smashed up. The whole family enjoyed everything. Thank you Janie!

I have also been so blessed to have several people to swap items with! I love swapping! Thank you Brenda! Thank you Linda! These are always so much fun!

This week we got our first egg and the excitement is still in the air every morning and evening. Did we get any more eggs, if so how many, what color are they? I so love my chickens.

This afternoon while sitting on the back porch, here comes a fox. Now I know that there are a lot of fox around here, but I also know that seeing them in the afternoon is not a good sign. George stopped at animal control on his way home from work to get a live trap. The man told him to shoot it. Son #3 was bitten about six years ago by a fox in the middle of the afternoon. We had to go about 70 miles to get the rabbi vaccination kit to bring it back to Lake City. This was not fun for him. So the live trap is set, keeping fingers crossed that he finds his way to it.

I can't help but wonder why there are so many sick fox here. Truly don't want to kill anything, but to think of what it could do to one of the little guys that are playing in their yard scares me. And then there is an older lady that lives across the street and of course the older man that lives next door. Sure hope to find him in the trap in the morning.

Time to get moving in a forward direction of the bed. It's almost midnight and 4:30 comes real soon.

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


  1. Oh Dede, you're going to love Marie's work. It is ten times better in person, I won from another giveaway,,,so intricate.
    That doesn't sound good about the foxes, I don't think I've ever seen one so up close. But if you have to destroy it then do it.
    Hope I didn't wake you up, just as you were falling asleep!
