Sun is shining today, the snow is melting and I'm going out to spin around on the quad a little - good things to do on a day of relaxing and simple pleasures. Then I plan to come in, finish the skirts I started sewing, make some cards and maybe even play in my studio a bit. I do like weekends!!

Earlier today I thought we were going into a major building project. We were just talking about the kitchen table and making another leaf for it so we can sit 10 people around it when Bob got the notion to tighten bolts which led to drilling holes which led to sanding which led to gluing - and many tools, bolts, and much sawdust in the kitchen! I can only imagine what house renovations would be like.

If you are looking for something good to read, you must go to Ree's blog "Confessions of a Pioneer Woman." She won a Bloggie award last week, which apparently is a big deal in blogland. I found out about her thanks to Heather and she makes me smile everyday. Caution - if you are not from the farm, some scenes may be disturbing!


  1. Sounds like a full, but great weekend. How does the table look now? I can see Dad under there working away at it. :) Reminds me of putting up your little tv in the kitchen this Christmas. Hope we catch up to you this weekend, too.

  2. LOL! I can only imagine what Dad's up to!
    I haven't read that blog in a while - I have to check it out again!
    I'm glad you are relaxing today.

  3. Can totally hear you on your dh's project. That happens here all the time. A small thing turns into a big thing.

    Have a great weekend.

    Hmmm - I will heed your caution and stay away. I am FAR from a farm kind of gal!! hee hee


  5. Hi Crystal,
    Glad you have some sunshine and the hope of springtime coming your way!
    I know all about major building projects and how one thing sort of leads to another. We lived through a kitchen renovation last year!!

  6. Home projects always start out small with us and quickly grow BIG. I wonder why that always happens that way? Ha.

    BTW, I really like the name of your blog.
