Hello my friends, it's been awhile! I have been without a computer and have not been able to catch up on everyone's blogs. I have a laptop now that my daughter told me was really really slow but I am finding it to be working not to badly so here I am :) I hope everyone is doing well and I have really missed being able to read everyones blogs. Things here have been busy for me and I seem to never have enough time. We had our first taste of snow Friday and I did not like it one bit!! It has all melted now but I am really looking forward to winter at all. Our doggy Roxy is adjusting well and being a typical beagle...it's like having another child in the house, lol always runing around to see what she is into. She likes garbage and we have had to do some hiding of the garbage can and she can jump a 3 and a half foot wooden half door gate to get into the woodstove room to get to the kids back packs with food in them. She loves to snuggle though and give loads of kisses, we just have to know what she has eaten before we let her kiss us since she loves the litterbox and mice :P Our kittens are growing fast and are ready for new homes already. We have found a nice home for 2 of them. I would love to keep at least one of them but they are male and we have all female cats so that would mean getting a male fixed...we shall see.
The big final NASCAR race is on Sunday and my boys will be glued to the t.v. hoping Tony Stewart will win! I may just have to watch some of the race even though I'm not into NASCAR too much, lol.
I have been getting to some auctions lately, every Friday evening at 5 there is one just 10 mins away from us. It's a bit of a scramble for me as I have to dinner ready early and I have to take 3 kids with me since James isn't home from work yet but we have fun! I have gotten some more enamel/graniteware and some primitive wooden bowls and mashers etc. I even got a wood jam cupboard that I am going to put our stereo system in to hide it, all I need to do is cut out some holes in the back for the cords. Much nicer than the ugly black cabinet with icky glass doors that I hate so much.

Well it's late here and I should be off to bed. Just wanted to post to say that I am still alive!
Hoping you are all having a fabulous weekend and take care!

Hugs, Trish :)

  1. Good to hear from you Trish - glad things are well. Yup - we've had snow here as well - several times already - and the sticking/staying kind. I'm not ready for it either - but to be honest, I'll never be ready. NASCAR - great....I know what will be on after the Packers are over....I do NOT like racing....Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!
