Ugh! emoticon

After researching about writing blogs, I decided to NOT do it. So.... I just kinda fell into creating a blog! LOL Infact, I had a hard time trying to find it on my computer! High learning curve. However, it was fun. :-)

Thanks...I used one of those cooling cloths around my neck (& onto the "girls") today. It helped my brain think about something other than HEAT.

Fortunately the RUDE customers stayed away & I didn't "bite" any heads off today... I'd rather they get their produce at their local grocery store and leave me alone.

This is a 'cool' hug.

Oh yes. I get absolutely cranky and miserable when it is really hot. Kinda panicky, too, if I can't seem to cool down.

Thunderstorms, 82% humidity, huge drops of rain... for 2 days now. Interesting weather here, right now. We could use the rain. Don't really need the humidity. ugh My Angel-cat loves it though. Such a surprise. :-)

emoticon Great idea. I'll check into it.

Hugs to your DH. I'm thinking you should change your signs to, "All you can eat" and up the price. Then, if they just happen to fill the bucket, charge 'em less? emoticon

Playing the 'waiting' game. Waiting for many things to happen here. My best friend is also doing the 'waiting' game. Trying to keep focused and get stuff done while listening to praise and worship on my Walkman (yes, old school).

* Your local store SHOULD be willing to order you a copy of whatever... Another useful site is Christan Book Distributors:
www.christianbook.com/

The berry field... today DH had a customer issue (RARELY happens!). He felt so bad; but the guy was eating through the field w/ 3 young kids. DH simply asked if he would eat less & put more in his bucket--so he left in a major huff, acting totally insulted. DH was completely in the right, but one doesn't feel any better when that all happens.

Thank you. Seems that the local Christian bookstore does not have audio. I adore the book! I want my own copy... some how... some way.

How's the berry field?

I'm finally getting around to reading, "Made to Crave." Excellent book! I've been reading parts of it over the phone to my friend. Is it on tape/audio yet? Really like, "Define your week by obedience, not by a number on a scale."

In a "perfect" scenario, the young man has a marketable skill which would be his initial "bread n' butter". Then he reaches out (or the whole "who you know!?") and looks to both gain experience & references to move out into new ventures.

Hopefully your nephew is a billionaire! -- Most farming/ranching is a great way to LOSE money! (Or at BEST, break even.) -- If DH had it to over again, he would have invested in property. (At least no self-employment tax on that income!)

Our chickens are full-grown & lay @ 4-6 eggs a day. - No reason to "name" chickens" IMO. -- DD will have to decide on name for kitten. (She asked me today about "Caspar". -- I suggested "Creamsicle".)

Quite a menagerie. Will be interesting to see how the chicks and kitten get along.

Have you named the kitten? the chicks?

Just found out my 22 year old nephew (who lives here in CA wants to go live in Kentucky (girlfriend lives there) and wants to run a ranch. emoticon I know he knows about caring for cats and dogs but other animals????

emoticon These are the days that never end.... They go on & on & on....

DD brought home a kitten on Sunday. Only 8 wks old. She said he was "orange"; he's creamsicle at best! She fixed him up a place outside. (We are kind of afraid of hawks, owls & other night predators--until he's bigger & smarter about the "big outdoors"!) ...Hoping he will be a good mouser! (Lots of times little ones learn from mom's; I think he's too young to be by himself.)

I'm heading out to feed & water our 7 chickens & let them roam around. -- If they stay out all day, they DESTROY our flowers & front yard. Haven't yet figured how best to keep them in the "back 40"! This batch is so gentle, they will follow anyone wherever they walk. emoticon

9 days down... 5 weeks to go...

Hope you will feel better soon! -- I'm not sure I recall being sick in the summer. Not sure how that feels?? Sounds like you have a few days to improve! -- This may sound silly, but try to spend some time in the sun getting some natural vit.D. (I always feel better with the LIGHT; avoid heat.)

It's written right on a sign board before walking into the field. (Even had a family "storm" out of the field last year when I insisted that the children were NOT allowed to eat through the field. They couldn't believe I was "so unreasonable"!!) -- I was GLAD to see them go!

That's awesome if it is something YOU planted & grew--the "fruits" of YOUR labor!

At the store it is called shoplifting. And most foods are in packages.

Why okay on the farm? It is the fun, irresistible part of harvesting.

I used a yard stick and white pencil. Towards the end, it was comedy of errors. The main thing is that it is DONE!

How's your driveway looking?

I truly understand about finding the driveway. We've been 'looking' for it for about a month, now. lol

So foggy here, it is misting. Love it! And that's b/c it is sooo hot inland.

Finished my quilt!!!!! emoticon Will post a pix soon. :-)

I have 2 more days until the farm opens. Need to get outside & find the driveway--LOTS of weeds everywhere! Sigh...... Guess it will get in some extra exercise! And at least it's overcast & cooler!

2940 emoticon Today was "perfect". I would like to order of month of these, please!?

Unfortunately, each day is getting hotter with 100 forecast for Sunday. emoticon

* On your quilt: IMO when you put all the time & effort into creating something you want to use, it's kind of important to use quality products that will both enhance it AND be durable /lasting.

Unless the thread is too thick? ...the hand quilting cotton thread may be your best choice. (I have some & it's "heavier". It works if I make sure to use the same thread both on top & below (bobbin). It could take a couple of spools. {IMO a lot of the polyester is cheap stuff--probably from China?!} Good luck!

emoticon I read what you wrote to DH.

Today, DH went shopping for thread. He found 3 different types. 100% polyester, 75% poly & 25% cotton blend, and one for hand quilting.

So, what does one use for sewing machine quilting? This is amazingly complicated now-a-days!

Hopefully your DH is bringing a quality cotton thread? -- So many of the stores are selling "junk" threads (including my local Fabric Depot). Problems include thread breaking, tangling in the tension, or actually "shredding" as it goes through the needle. Just got rid of one that kept locking in the bobbin holder & really messing up the stitching line. After the 3rd or 4th attempt w/ stitches removed each time, I finally tossed it. AND I couldn't tell by looking at it that it was going to cause all that trouble!

Happy Summer!

I found a artist who did just that... for free. Great work. However, I am unable to connect with her.

Yes, usage and grammar errors. I know better! LOL

Today, I finally started work on my quilt. The sewing machine part. I haven't used my machine in a long time, so..... between that, the not-so-great lighting, the glare, the progressive glasses, the sore back... it was a challenge. AND THEN, I ran out of thread!!!!

Hubby is now at the store on his way home, looking to purchase some for me.

I would be surprised if you can get someone you don't know to spend time creating art without pay?? -- They build their portfolio AND get paid; if for at least their time... emoticon

Since I was a secretary in times past, my fingers seem to know when I'm off keys or typing crazy (and I certainly do lately; more so than in the past). But maybe you meant usage / grammar errors??

Just got back my manuscript from a beta reader (to see if it is ready to be published). She found many stupid little mistakes. I shake my head in wonder and am appalled! ~ sigh

Do you know a graphic artist who is willing to do a bit of work for free?

Felt very emotional at the young man's service to day. My eyes have shed a LOT of tears! -- It almost seems that his passing was an unexpected answer to the prayers of his parents. What an amazing young man he was in terms of the influence he had on so many people of all ages!

IMO that is still a very unusual request?!

Just heard that friends from our single days (both DH & I knew them!), lost their 21 yr old son on Sunday. Heading to a service this coming Sat. -- So shocking & unexpected! (Health condition they had no knowledge of... he was an adopted child from birth.) The "good" in the sad is that they have a forever hope that is grounded in TRUTH.
