Day 2 was a busy one

I think today was the first day this week that I hadn't gone anywhere, not even to get the mail and I was able to get a lot done around the house, in and out.

Besides straightening up the house I needed to make another batch of yogurt. Did get it started a little late this morning, 


I like to cook mine 10 to 12 hours, find it comes out a little thicker.

I was able to also get the binding on another 
Christmas quilt, but I'll have more to share tomorrow along with some pictures.

Wanted to work on the pillow cases today. I had found some additional fabric to use. Still need to dig out my tub . of flannel to find a coordinate go with the Santa print.

The main thing today was finally getting around to the fall clean up of the yard   I like to mow the leaves up along with the last time of cutting the grass.


Always looks so neat and greener as you can tell from this picture.
Besides picking up the leaves I've been told if it gets cold enough that because the grass is short and less debris it helps kills bugs and weed seeds. So far I haven't noticed it but I'm optimist.

The clippings and mulched leaves all go into the compost bins to be used next year.


Did you this evening we are experiencing a super moon. Took this picture  with my IPad and not the best but I hope you had a chance to see it. The best times are at sunset and sunrise.


Last night I forgot to light the christmas candle so I have to burn it a little longer

  1. I always cut my grass late in the year too and mulch the leaves like you do and I don't think I had near as many bugs this year as I do sometimes but I don't know if that is what does take care of it but one can hope right! Love your candle.

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.
