We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

The morning dog walk is canceled. Ever since she saw these deer, Rose has been hyperventilating.

Thank you sis, but we have several "dog blankets" for them. Jeff seems to think they want cushy beds, but Rose often sleeps on the bare floor or the couch. Even my mother-in-law's dogs snuggle up to her during the day and sleep with her at night. I can sew up the sides again.

Andrea I love the pumpkins. I panted 'new england sugar pie' pumpkins and have harvested several already. They are small like that.

Vintage sewing machines, original parts & related book titles.-

Just put down a fleece blanket. Heck, I can make one for Rose.

Rose seems to be thinking, "now what?". The dog bed is one day old. It lasted 20 minutes and was the biggest waste of $15.

These are pretty and the plant is beautiful. Our pumpkins are ripe too---I have never seen them ripe so early. Weird season.

I pulled these cute little pumpkins from my garden this morning.

Oh my! When I got home today this what greeted my eyes! Who knew when we began to update the kitchen a year ago that it would look so nice.

This picture's our puppy named Rose.
Although she is now in repose
She has several bad habits
Like lunging at rabbits.
She drags me through the weeds as she goes.

A 9 year old in our church decided he wanted to be baptized the old fashioned way-in the river. Here he is with our pastor.

Here's all the family and friends who were there. Thank goodness it wasn't raining. We all returned to church and had a big 'ol lunch.

Good for you for being socially conscious. I'll bet these kids will keep the article for years.

Thank you, Barbara - I try to be kind because I know everyone is having problems nowadays.
Now I'd like to toot my horn...the Father's Day issue turned out nice and both pictures on the front page were mine.

The other was for Dairy Month. These children live in an apartment complex outside of Augusta. It is nicely cared for, but I suspect it is low income housing. Free lunches are delivered here every weekday, plus 3 other locations. The delivery lady suggested I go to another location that had more kids, but these children aren't seen - this may be the only time they are in the paper.

By the way, my boss wanted a 2 line headline, so I suggested "udderly." Sorry for the long explanation, but every week it seems like a miracle that we have news to print. During the pandemic, we were down to 8 pages, but now things are picking up. All I can say is support your local newspaper (or subscribe to mine!).

Vanessa---you are such a wonderful kind person. I wish the world was full of people like you. God bless your new doggie. I know how you feel painting by yourself---I have spent so many hours painting fences and buildings and decks---there is a peace in it though---time to think your own thoughts or listen to loud music.

It is! I'm thinking of sleeping outside one of these nights, but we have solar lights hooked up and they last quite a long time.

That looks like a very relaxing place Vanessa.

Today I'm sitting in our gazebo, the perfect place to sew binding on a quilt and watch Dark Shadows on Tubi.

I finished digging out the grass for my new bed, in the lower left which will have pollinator flowers. It is made from cedar and construction angles with machine bolts. Next to it is my asparagus bed. Above, next to the composted are onions and next to them are peas and carrots. Excuse the weeds, I'll get around to trimming them soon.

I have just realized that to comfortably loll on this swing I'll need to get larger cushions.
