Just a few pics to share.

Here is Katie with a new best friend! LOL! Another cute critter I made with a pattern from Lion Brand Yarns. We named him Woody B. A. Bugger since he has buggy eyes!

Today on our walk, I found some lovely sweet gum leaves and a pine cone. So I brought them home and took this picture. Little things like this always catch my eye. It was a very nice walk by the way. A bit nippy but sunny and the Methodist church downtown's bells were chiming out Jesus Loves Me. Made me smile and brought back memories of my grandma Lane who lived across from this same church. How much I enjoyed the bells even then.
Also made pumpkin cheesecake swirl bread for tomorrow and maybe a piece tonight as well. Easy recipe from Mennonite girls Can cook
So there is my little post. Be blessed tomorrow at thanksgiving and always. Thank you for your visits and friendship.

snowmen, elephants & bunnies oh my!

My progress on Rainbow bridge. This spot seems to be taking forever but that is okay.
One of two bibs Jack is making for a couples baby due to arrive in January. The other is a cute little cow.
My elephant is all finished! Cute i think!
And this? This is what happens when a determined woman (me) goes down a road she should not have trying to get a picture of the migratory birds coming in to spend time before continuing on south. Many of the farmers make sure they have food. I almost got us stuck and was sliding all over the place. Turning around was just as nerve wracking as was getting back to the highway. And the worst part was that I still couldn't get a picture! The best part? Jack kept his sense of humor through it all and why not! I still got him to his doctor appointment on time! Some adventure that was! LOL!
The following pictures are the Christmas display at Ellis furniture in Nevada MO. We stopped in to look at used sofas and ended up buying a new looking used sofa and love seat for less than three hundred dollars. We will be getting rid of Jack's recliner and our other loveseat. Th recliner just isn't working out for him at all. However we will be giving both pieces to some friends who could really use them.

So that is all for me. God bless!

A day in the life!

So just what are those Perkins up to? Sure you want to know? Okay but remember you asked for it!
I have finally lost what little mind I had left!
Jack is playing a game on the 'puter. I brought him some cranberry apple zinger tea to warm him up. Glad he feels well enough to be on the computer again!
Katie, of course, is napping. What a life!
And this? Really it is going to be an elephant once he grows another ear, some legs and eyes might be nice too. I want to make a bunch of little critters to give to the kids at church and kids I meet when I am out and about. I think I will do elephants, bumbly bees, lady bugs and bears.
Yippee!!!!!! I am back to my cross stitching. Ahh, that feels nice!

So there is our day. Thanks for visiting! huggles and blessings.

Just a little post

Jack had to go into the hospital Thursday and has cellulitis in his left leg. He came home on Saturday but has a long road ahead of him to recover. Still is on crutches, still having pain as well and plenty of swelling. He is trying not to be grumpy and laugh and I am proud of him for that. So here are a few humorous and sweet pictures of a guy and his loving nurse.

Unexpected Sabbatical

I will most likely not be blogging for awhile. With Jack's health concerns right now I feel it my duty to focus on keeping up the chores around here and caring for him. His leg continues to be very swollen and he is having to use his crutches tonight due to pain in the foot. I just have not been doing much of anything craft wise the past few days and am not speding a lot of time on the computer either. Hope to visit again in a few days!
