A Couple Of New Things

Today is Thursday, November 4, 2010. The cooler weather is here in the mornings and late evenings, yesterday afternoon 86 degrees. A few of the trees are starting to change colors! I love all of the colors that Fall brings and the cool mornings. It was cloudy with rain on and off yesterday, looks like it is going to be the same today.

These are a few of the card holders and another little bag. The bag is bigger than the other bags that I have done in the past. I enjoyed doing this one, a little bigger canvas to work on. The little card holders are the four seasons, to hold a debit card or other card of the same size. They are not long enough to hold a business card. Have also been working a a couple of needle holders. They are almost finished maybe by this weekend.

Was able to finally get a sweatshirt at Wal-Mart last week so I am excited to be able to start on a sweatshirt jacket. I had ordered the pattern a couple of months ago, and with it being summer, I wasn't able to get a sweatshirt. So when all of my other little projects are finished, this is my next one.

The candy is coming along for the holidays. It sure seems to be taking a while to do, not sure why. But, the great thing is I will not be under the gun this year to get it pumped out in a week.

Young son has taken to the girls, every morning he comes out to help me with them. Not sure if it is the babies that he is drawn to or if he really enjoys watching them. After I clean out their coop, I give them cheese crackers. They LOVE cheese crackers. Now mama will come up and peck at your foot as if to say, where's the crackers and Trouble will take them right out of the package if you aren't moving fast enough for her. They don't like the peanut butter ones, just the cheese and it has to be the ones with the cheese cracker too. They will eat the grill cheese ones but only if there are no cheese crackers.

Young son has been giving them the crackers as soon as he gets outside. So now if he doesn't come out, mama gets real impatient and wants them now, not when I am finished.

The babies are just to funny to watch them scratching. Their little legs are so short, they just look funny scratching like crazy. It just amazes me how much animal instinct they are born with. From scratching to the rooster giving his cry that there is danger and the hens knowing just what to do, even at this young age of two months. If the weather clears up I would like to try to get a video of them to post. This is if Young Son will help his know nothing about posting videos mom out.

I expect to see my mama today, it is Thursday and her get out of the house day. So I had better get the things done that I need to get done before she gets here, or it won't get done.

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