Digging through our “little” room where stuff is stored I found this...
My kids loved it . The garage is on the other side where the car can drive into it. The lid lifts up to see the bed area and the dog you see is sitting in the area by the bed. The sliver of orange above the roof is a chimney that has a slide inside. There is a bell to sound and a butterfly to move around. Miss A will enjoy this I’m sure as much as the others have. Prefect toddler size, I brought out the Little People house but she’s a bit too young to appreciate it.
This weekend I’m house/dog sitting for my son while he and his family go to PA. When I arrived I found this gem waiting on me.
It’s so me and will hold my tea nice and warm.
R and I went to an open house at a shop near us. I love these towels that came home with me. They open up with another panel but they don’t fit on my stove handle full size. I wanted to show you the red stripes.
Somehow these jumped in my truck too. They have a greenish cast to them. They didn’t photograph well as it’s getting dark earlier now.
Back to going through stuff and purging. Too bad it will take 20 years to make a dent.

Came to see us!
Can you see R in the sunset
messing with Gemstone?
She worked near me and stopped by after work to torture the girls.
Miss Diamond was asking me,
“Why is that girl here again?
Every time she shows up we have to endure her attention and selfies and petting.”

R2 asked me to make a costume for Miss A to wear trick or treating next week. She is fully aware it’s for R2’s benefit as Miss A will never remember at 18 months old.
Strawberry Shortcake was requested and here’s my attempt.
We used a simple store bought a-line dress.
R2 also bought green and white striped tights so we oughta be good to go.
Hopefully I’ll have pictures to show off her next week. Fittings were difficult last night as she flipped and flopped and cried so fingers crossed.
Don’t examine it too closely . It’s thrown together without seam finishes.
If Momma’s happy Grandma’s happy.

Socks are finite finally. I don’t keep at it so it took a year . Oh well at least I finished .
Self striping yarn is pretty nice.
I tried to start about the same place on the second sock.
Matched up pretty well.
Now to start a Christmas present that is to gifted this year not next.

I woke up to 50• outside and 60• inside. I am happy, happy, happy!
Hopefully the bugs will go away so Miss A and I will be able to go outside without getting bit every two feet or so. We are magnets for mosquitos. Her more than I but I still get bit a lot more than others.
She loves to play outside so hopefully she will be able to without looking like a leprosy patient.
No amount of flea medicine either prescribed or over the counter works on dog and cat that run through fields and pastures.
My night lights and bowls of soapy water are spred through the house. I change it daily. The amount is thinning. Some bowls are only containing one or two fleas but may contain small spider or moth. Yea they die too yeah! I'll keep this up till frost shows up. I do not turn heat on until after frost. I do not let cat or dog inside either. S does after I go to bed, he thinks I don't know it. Nothing bites him so he doesn't care.

This weekend LN , R and I drove to Massachusetts for the Big E sheep show.
She won Reserve Champion Wool Lamb in Junior Show .
She also won the senior class of leadline.
Then won overall leadline Champion.
This won her wool fabric and Babylock sewing machine.
Nice weekend with my girls.
Wearing paisley showing LN's Lincoln lambs.
R helped her all weekend.
Lambs were happy to rest after the show.
On the way home something blew or leaked oil everywhere.
I limped home and now have to deal with fixing that.
It is always something.

LN is moved in to Franklin and Marshall and goodbye has been said. I'll see her Friday to go to a livestock show over the weekend.
Chilling and setting up wifi...

Posters and lights make everything bright!

Tomorrow flea markets before heading home .
I'm exhausted ...

We spent last night before LN is moved to college working of course.
Tub washing sheep for MD state fair next weekend, cleaning nasty pen, killing wasps and mud dabbers by the ton, cussing, arguing, laughing, and generally causing grief all around.
No pictures because we were all working and wet and occasionally wearing manure.
Truck is packed and ready.
R was here helping tonight and saying goodbye. They are really close .
Z will be here at 5:50 am to say goodbye. He's a toughy but inside he cares.
Grandparents were visited today.
Her best friend is here now for last hugs.
Tomorrow she flies...
Tough and strong (and occasionally mean) just like I want her to be.
Life's not humble and kind.
Kick a** kid!
