Hello again my friends!

I have found some quiet time, yes, late at night again, to post.
It has thankfully been warmer the past few days, -2 degrees instead of -30 +++, although we have a problem with the snow melting on the roof and huge icicles melting and the water is dripping down inside our front door and in our living room wall. I guess we can't win either way, lol, we either freeze or deal with melting messes. Since I have been stuck at home because of snowy weather lately and I don't drive when the roads are slippery, I have been bored and started to do a wee bit of shopping on EBAY. I found some awesome deals and I will post pics when they arrive in the mail. I really can't wait but it will likely be next week before they start arriving. I also met one the friendliest EBAY sellers there ever was, and we have the same tastes, primitive, old fashioned , things from the past. Ann has kept in contact with me alot and and we have some great email conversations. If anyone would like to visit her EBAY store, here is her link:
sallyscellarstore items - Get great deals on Antiques, Collectibles items on eBay.com! hope that worked, lol. I can't wait for better weather to arrive so that I can get out and visit our antique stores closer to home as well, yes Natalie, I need to visit you soon! :)
So far this week has been fairly quiet compared to last. Last week a neighbor of ours from down and around the bend had 4 horses get out, twice! The second time around, the horses were running loose on our road in front of a plow and went into the forest. They were also on our property trying to get into our paddock. Luckily 3 of the horses showed up back home and the 4th was found nearby later that morning. I was more concerned about them running wild while my kids were leaving to catch the school bus so I drove them to the bus stop as you just never know what can happen. This week I decided to stain the 4 kitchen chairs that were remaining. 2 are completely done and 2 just need one more coat. It seems to be taking forever to dry, lol, and trying to keep 5 kids from touching them and making sure the cats don't walk across them is a challenge for sure.
Well, I think it's time for bed, I'm yawning :) Thanks for stopping by and I'll post again real soon!

Hugs, Trish
