Another Rainy Day!

It's raining here again! Seems like it rains here alot lately. I've been some sewing for my Advent Swap partner. So I can't show you any goodies. Here's a pic of the Patriots in the snow in the middle of October! John and Jared went and froze their noses off! They had fun thought!

Here's a pic of Kay and Mylo. I guess Mylo wanted to help Kay to her homework! He has been doing some reading lately. Yes, he chewed another paperwork book from the library. That's #2! So, I've learned not to leave anything in the living room because Mylo will want to read it!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Wishing I Was Here!

This is the pool at the Caribbean Beach Resort in Florida. John and I went for a few days last October without our kids. First time going away without them. We had a great time but sure did miss them. I wish I was sitting next the pool having a drink with an umbrella in it!

Have a great day everyone!

Beautiful Day!

It's a beautiful day here in New England. High 60's, low 70's with no snow in sight! After this past weekend we need a day like today.

Today I went to my elderly couples house and cleaned and had tea/cookies with them. It's such a joy to sit and hear about their lives. They have been married for 62 years! WOW. I asked Oscar what the secret is and he answered "patience". Oscar has Parkinsons Disease but his hearing and mind are sharp as a tack! Irene is a hoot..always talking about the good ol' days.

I hope to finish making some goodies today for Leeanne's Open House the first weekend in November. I'm making wallets, keychains, small totes. Keeps me out of trouble.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Rainy Day

Today its raining and very chilly out! Kaylee and I are hanging out today and watching a few movies. The boys have gone to the Patriots game! They were both very excited when they left this morning. Its a 4pm game, but they leave so they can tailgate with everyone and cook before the game starts! Boys having fun! LOL

I hope to finish up some of my swaps I've signed up for! It's been alot of fun!

Hope everyone is having a great day and keeping warm.

It's Snowing

Yes, it's snowing here this morning! It's October and the white stuff is flowing downwards! How can that be? Living in New England you never know what the weather is going to be like. Here's a pic of the goodies I've been sewing! Yes, Christmas Stockings! What fun! I made them from scraps that I had around. Just need to fill them with some goodies and someone will be very happy!
I signed up for two swaps recently online. One is an Alphabet Swap. I have to send my swap partner anything that begins with the letter "L". Oh, gosh. It's been fun trying to find things.

The other swap is an Advent Christmas Swap. I have to send my partner 25 items and she will open one everyday starting Dec 1st and ending on Christmas Day. Isn't that wonderful! Getting little things before Santa comes! Yahoo.

I'm off to do more sewing and maybe make an apple pie! Have a great day!

Columbus Weekend at Normandy Farms

We went camping this past long weekend with my sister Sharon and her gang. We had great weather..little chilly but overall great time. We went apple picking, ate dough boys by the fire and Dad, Mom and Hazel came for dinner on Sunday. One family had about 10 pumpkins carved out!
The gang having dinner on Sunday. Jared came home on Sunday and spend two nites with us. It was wonderful having him home. It's strange not having him home everyday now.

Here's Kay and Travis when we were apple picking. Oops..Kay - open your eyes!

Like Father - Like Son. Here's my brother-in-law, Shawn and my nephew, Gavin fishing at the pond. No fish were biting..just pondweed! LOL

Here we are apple picking. We just wanted to walk around with Sharon and gang, but the lady at the farm stand we can't do that. We have to buy a bag and apple pick! We couldn't walk around with them? As you can see..I'm still a little upset by it! We did have fun tho. Apple crisp anyone?
Happy Fall

Fall Decorations

I finally got some Fall decorations out around the house. I put my scarecrow on the shelf in the kitchen. My little sweater - I usually have this on my Christmas tree, but I put that away last year.
Another mini wallhanging, pattern by Debbie Mumm, hanging in the Family Room.

It's certainly Fall here in New England. Leaves are turning and its cold in the morning! Brrr!
Happy Day Everyone!
