Gosh it's been a long time

Howdy! I can't believe it's been so long since my last post.  I saw that date and suddenly the passing of time hit me like a brick wall.  It's the end of September already.  Amazing.  Well, I hope to be back at the blogging now.  Apologies for my lapse.

September brings things I like; colors, cooler weather, and my birthday!  Not that I am anxious to be getting older, but who doesn't like getting all the birthday wishes?  We are already experiencing fall temperatures here in Southern Ohio.  The leaves are slowly turning.  Crops are being harvested.  Pumpkins are everywhere! 

The new job is going so well.  I absolutely LOVE it.  Finally I feel like I am in a place where I am needed and feel useful.  It's a great place to work and with luck I will be able to go from contract to hire. 

I have been crocheting scarves.  Not many because there are only so many hours in the day.  I finished up one I called a signature ranch scarf because I used that same drop stitch as in my blankets.  Here's a pic of it.

I really love the colors and the scarf is quite soft and feels like it would be super warm against the chilling wind.  Not to mention it will make you look good out and about!  I started another one only to have a friend of mine fall in love with it - so as soon as it's finished I'll be mailing it to her! I love it when someone tells me they want something I've made.  Makes my heart feel so good!!

We have the second half of the barn in.  Now the DH needs to start the roof.  We have the other half filled with our winter hay.  260+ bales fit nicely and it worked out great. I hope the roof goes as smoothly! 
Well, you're all caught up on my end.  I'm going to try and catch up with you gals!  Hope all is well.  I've missed you!


  1. Good to hear about your job - glad you love it. Your scarf is pretty. :)

  2. I like your scarf! It's very nice and will be great for fall. The barn looks lovely! I bet you are so excited to get it and get it ready for winter. I love fall it's one of my favorite times of year. I've already been to the apple orchard once and will be going again soon. I am making apple sauce and putting it up in the freezer. I've been making apple crisps too. Hope you have had a good weekend.

  3. Hello and thanks! I really like the scarf, too. Tempting to keep it! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
