November Already!

Surely the weathermen are wrong....maybe I heard wrong but I do believe I heard on the news tonight Oklahoma may have snow in the next 10 to 12 days. It's a good thing I had the propane take filled last week there has been a cool wind blowing across the prairie lately.

Well finished hooking on this snowman and still need to do the binding on the edge but he will have to wait until next week. Seems like this week will be filled to the brim.

We have been busy doing some fall clean up and outdoor painting. Notice the blur of Pipsqueak as she dashes by at top speed behind Danny.

We still like one more flowerbed but my littlest helper had to go home for the evening.

Today we found 3 eggs and soon we will be using them to make Sloan's favorite....Brownies. Okay so they are one of my favorite's too!

Over the weekend Danny cleaned up the garden spot. Sloan and Pipsqueak are racing over to the chicken pen.

It was a perfect day to play on the swing.

When we got the chickens aka chiggers for Sloan wish we would have known just how many roosters we would wind up with. We had 6 roosters just too many so after giving Mom a couple a few more went to a friend for her lil' boy and girl to enjoy!

The rest of the week will be busy getting ready for a baby shower and the church fall dinner that will be held here this coming weekend. Lots of housecleaning....I would by far like to be hooking or punching but those cobwebs and dustbunnies aren't taking care of themselves.

Surely they didn't say snow :)

Happy Trails.....Ginger

Snow, are you kidding me. I love snow, but I think it is a bit early.

Sloan has so much fun at your house.
Swinging, taking care of his chiggers, gathering eggs and making brownies. Such a happy life.

oh my goodness, don't tell me snow, not yet!
Sure looked like a beautiful day to be outside and finishing up some things. I just cannot believe how much Sloan changes from day to day. Sooo sweet!
mmmm, brownies :)

Loved all the pics on your farm Ginger. Your rug is wonderful and seeing that cutie pie Sloan just makes me smile. He looks like he just loves being with you and helping. Show us a close up of your little Pips again soon. He is adorable!

Oh no! Snow! :) Your snowman rug is darling... but Sloan is super-darling! Looks like you have been working very hard. Hopefully some crafting time can sneak into your busy schedule.

Just love your snowman - just in time - I hear that we're suppose to get some snow by the end of this week! Have been catching up on your blog and just love the pictures of New York. isn't it the greatest city? I always go out around Thanksgiving time and I can't wait. There is always so much to see!

Joanne said...

Ginger - you must have heard wrong - can't be snow yet - we are still waiting for fall to arrive, right?

Pipsqueak sounds like he's having the time of his life, especially with Sloan to race around with

You are going to be busy but it is good stuff. I love the picture of Sloan and the eggs. That is something my grand babies love to do,
Go with Gama and get eggs, then take them home so Mom can fix them chicken eggs for breakfast.
Your rug as always is just beautiful. I am just finishing my first rug. I did it though using a Oxford punch needle. Interesting way to do a rug. I wondered if you like punch needle or hooking better?

Snow? I was afraid this would happen ... Had to run the AC last weekend and now it's getting cold. What happened to Fall?? humm ... time to get some warmer clothes out. lol :)

OH the face on that little Sloan - could just squish it!! So cute!! I refuse to buy anything but pullets anymore - never fails that you get soooo many roosters and I can't stand them and you don't need them so.......NO MORE!! :)
