Back in the swing of things again.

  There is the new house.  all done and complete,  and we are moved in. That's the big reason that I have not posted for a while.  That and then it took forever to get the internet straightened out so that I could get on line.

But I have been busy doing other things as well.  I had a show to do in September which took me away from home for a week and then a wedding to go to in Virginia,  so gone again.  I am happy to say that I won't be going anywhere until the second week in Jan. 

  I visited the Mabry Mill in the Blue Ridge in Virginia.    It is very beautiful and they have a wonderful restaurant there that has amazing food.  If you are ever there,  I recommend eating there.
   The park service was doing demonstrations that day,  and there was a lady that was spinning wool.  I really enjoyed talking to her and watching her spin .  I also got a few photos of the big spinning wheel since I have a few that are in pieces  and I would like to fix them.
 While driving thru the mountains ,  I found a Newt.  I have never seen one and this one was super tiny,  but I did get a photo of him.
  The garden is just been cleaned out and I want to plant some winter squash and some melons.  The rain that we had this year allowed the weeds to overtake the garden and we are trying to think of ways to keep that from happening again.

 

                                 Well,  that's all the news from the south,  
                                Happy" farming" to all the farm girl sisters out there.
                                See you next week. down on the farm.
