Oh what a beautiful morning

Mother nature decided to give us a taste of fall here in North East Oklahoma the past couple of days.
I woke up this morning with the temperature at 60's and you could not ask for any more pleasant weather.
So the first thing I did was to get dressed, after my coffee, and go outside to just drink up this beautiful blessing
Before I took my walk I decided to check the traps by the chicken house none in that trap but 

Lo and behold I have one trapped underneath the birdfeeder by the back porch. Jeez Louise this makes seven in the past four days. I thought they lived in like dens and they would have a certain amount of area that they would consider their feeding grounds. How many can you have that one area?
And another thing they must breed like bunnies
So after my walk I went out to the garden and did a little more weeding, pick some more veggies, and planted a few seeds for my fall garden.
I also took a picture of the dish I mention yesterday that I'm going to plant the cactus I bought. More on that in yesterday post. 

Then I took the racoon to his lakeside resort. Went to town and the post office by then it was lunchtime
Amazing how quickly my day goes.
This afternoon we're having our chimney swept. Because we use our woodstove as our main source of heating in the winter time...so we need to get it cleaned every year.
I did get some sewing in this afternoon. I cut up some more strips for the red string quilt 

Then I started making the blocks for this months RSC15.

 I did get the spool blocks completed. 

And then cut the strips I need for the curvy log cabin blocks. 

Did get an hour or so in last night quilting on the 30's sampler and maybe can get a little bit more done this evening too. 

slowly but surely


  1. Your certainly got a lot done in one day, I can't believe that you have trapped another racoon, incredible.

  2. Hopefully yesterday's was the last of the racoons. You still got a lot done, even if you only had half the day. Love all your indogo scraps and blocks.

  3. My goodness those raccoons are very persistent aren't they! xx


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
