Just a fun little post!

First let me show you the lovely full moon that greeted us Monday morning. That blip in front of it is a bird flying past.
And I think this is a very cute building. It is a pediactric facility here in town.

I took a break long enough to stencil angels on my little cabinet. And I repainted the top of the coffee table. The white just didn't do it for me for some reason. I found a 50 cent bottle of cream with a tinge of yellow that I do like much better!

And lastly, Sylvia Joy in all her Sylvianess!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings!

It's A Snowman Storm!

Not a lot to show you that is different. I have done about 3 dozen snowmen with three more dozen to go and still a dozen santas to finish. The latest batch finished!
I also took time to try out a super easy scrubbie pattern. I like it. It is double thick and a good size to fit well in your hand.
We were blessed with a good rain the other day. Still close to 8 inches short on rainfall but blessed for what we got.

Here is Miss sylvia and I saying hello. Well if she were more awake!
So intent on my crocheting she nearly fell off the sofa.
And just being Sylvia!

Stitching Thru The Cool Days!

We have been enjoying some wonderful coo days the last couple days. I did finish a dishcloth. Sorry the leaf is so hard to see. My camera is really worn out and tired. Hoping for a new one in the next year.

I also am doing some santa faces for a few people.
Most of my time will be spent on making snowmen. I have done two dozen and still have 86 snowmen to go! I can however do about 10-12 bodies a day. The hats and scarves take very little time and the faces I can manage about 7-10 a day. So I should be well done in time for Christmas for those who ordered them.
I have had a very good helper. Well sort of anyway! She stole a hat and played soccer all over the living room and slapped one snowman plum off the sofa!
Here is what they look like finished!

Heading down the pig trail!

Today is my Jack's 65rd birthday. I set up a surprise card shower for him using facebook. He has gotten 40 or more cards.
I baked him a mayo cake with cream cheese frosting and then we headed out for a drive down 16 highway known here as the pig trail. Perfect temperatures for a ride!

Found this lovely little church as well.
On the way home we stopped at Lake Sequoia to stretch our legs.

 And Miss sylvia was not impressed by our absence!
Lastly, look at this wonderful old house we passed. If only it could talk! I wonder about the laughter and tears it has seen.
