Wrapping Up The Week


Thought I'd just finish up the week with what I've been doing. As you can see, the cows have been back - 3 mornings this past week! Anywhere's from 4 to 6 of them. The dogs love to chase them out and up the road! Good practice for our Border Collie, and he's teaching Ms. Salli a thing or two on the fine art of "herding".

Yesterday I went to the Quilt Shop and bought some material to make some potholders so I can practice my hand quilting. I picked up 3 "fat quarters" and should get at least 6 potholders out of them. Also got the "stuffing" and some needles. They laugh at me in the store because I don't know what I'm doing, but I'll figure it out! I'm sure it will be fun and challenging!

After that, I went on up the road and stopped at an antique store to price the old metal bed frames they have sitting outside. I want one for my full size bed, and the store has several of them. Unfortunately, she wants $100 for any one of them. Kind of out of my range right now. Especially since its the whole bed ensemble and I only want a head board! But it was good to find out.

Then on to WalMart for flea meds for the dogs and dog food and a little bit of people food! Nothing too exciting happened there.........then I headed for home.

Now, if you are faint of heart, don't look at the last two pictures. Every once in a while I get the urge to curl my hair, and so I got a perm this past week. I know I'm not supposed to be vain, but I think it looks pretty good. HOWEVER, you would not think that when you look at these two pictures!! Why do I look so much better when I look in the mirror, as opposed to the camera? Only God knows!!


Now, I must say, it has loosened up some since this picture and looks okay. Now is I could just find a cure for wrinkles and lines.......... Hope it didn't scare you too badly; kind of looks like I'm drunk or drugged or something; or ready for Halloween! Now that takes NERVE!!

Until next time, have a great weekend. Take care and God Bless.

Ardith, your hair looks nice. But think if you smiled how much better it would be. Just kidding. I am to the point of doing something like that to my hair, but whether or not I post it only time will tell. You did good. For sewing. I am trying my hand again I am doing coasters for each kid's family. Pot holders is something I should try as well. Glad you thought of it.

Thanks for being so nice Grammy! But I think if I didn't take the pictures myself - of myself - they wouldn't be quite so bad! LOL The potholders are so I can practice my hand quilting! Thanks for stopping by.
