Three of the five leaves on the second half of the second border for Fall Harvest were finished on Sunday night – not bad I thought. Almost ready to turn the corner and start the 3rd border.
this is the area left to do on the 2nd border.
This area of Murrieta Stars will be in a large cross hatch and the stars will be outlined. I took a day off of varnishing my sewing table – two coats finished and needs at least two more still but I needed my head ache to clear out – I thought I might get to it last night and leave the window partly opened and a fan directing the smell outside but it was to get down to 36 last night so thought I would wait a day and get it done in the daytime instead and have it airing out while I went to the fitness center in the afternoon. Linking to Esther’s Quilt Blog today
We have decided to have some trees taken out so had a man from a local tree service come yesterday to do some estimates. This big tree that is “on top” of the house is coming down. We will certainly miss its shade in the summer time but it is just too close to the house as it has grown and grown in the past 36 years – the roof gets moss damage, too many small branches fall on the house, we have to clean the leaves off several times a year – and lets face it at 65 we are getting to old to be climbing on top of the roof twice a year if not more to clear it all off. The roof above the porch is fairly flat so we have been safe doing it but – enough- right!
We have 4 more along the side of the house that are tall, one leaning and will be uprooted if we don’t take care of it soon and they are all too close to the house or too close to power lines for us to do it. So hopefully they will be able to get to us on Friday or next week – we will know closer to the end of the week. See that leaning tree – they will cut that one into firewood for us as it is one that will make good firewood and have a slow burn to it and two of those pine trees in this photo well be taken out too – more up closer to the road will need to be done another time.
Our granddaughter Ciera lives in Wisconsin is on a rowing team – we miss all these events as too far but get photos shared with us on Facebook – this past weekend they attended a regatta that took place in Columbus Ohio – it started to snow while the were rowing! Talk about cold. She is the one with the braids and hood up and hat under it.
The day before – short sleeve shirt – (blue T and braids) – what a change in weather.
Happy Halloween everyone one – hope you get some cute kids coming by – if you are like me in the country you will be lucky to get one trick or treater – like us – Aniya will be by to get spoiled I will try to remember to get a photo of her.
