Day 22 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Today we walked on another part of the walkway that White House has made through town. It is a very pretty walk and a lot of people use it. No fear of tripping and they have different trees marked along the path. I'm not sure which section we will check out tomorrow.

The question of the day is yesterday:
Orange is a colour that people either hate or love: tell us how you feel about it.

Answer: My favorite colors while I was a teen was yellow, brown and orange! Just about everything except clothes was one of these colors. I didn't look good in those colors at all. I remember one of the dresses that my mother made me was brown with orange and white flowers. I shall have to look for it. I may have a piece of that fabric in my stash somewhere. I was very lucky that my mother was a great seamstress because I sure would not have had the fantastic wardrobe that she provided without that talent. I think I was the best dressed kid in school thanks to her.

How about you, did you like the color orange?

Until next time,

Day 21 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

 Whoops.... I missed a few days. The past couple days have just flown by for me. Today wasn't any different as I almost forgot to get on here and bug everybody again....

Our rain date for the craft fair was this past Sunday and we did okay. What surprised me was that there was only 2 crafters, myself and Scents by Suzi. Suzi was at most of the same farmer's market days with us also. We shall see if we set up next year at this show. Our next show is at Beech Lodge #240 at 3198 Long Hollow Pike in Hendersonville, TN this Saturday. Yikes, it is from 8 am till 4 pm. Long day..... They are also having a pancake breakfast! Yum!

Today Carl and I started walking again. There is a trail through town that is a nice easy walk so we went there. We would walk along the road, but there are no shoulders on the roads here in Tennessee. Then we came home and I started working on some more craft fair projects. I have been trying to think of new things I can add to my inventory that are easy. So I dug out my fall and Christmas fabrics and am making potholders. I gave a couple to Julie so that she can heat and wash test them for me. I want to make sure that they don't fall apart in the first wash. The other thing I accomplished today (besides my writing here) is helping a grand-daughter with her homework. I can't believe the amount of homework these kids have now. It just amazes me!

Well, I am off to hit the hay. I am pooped!

Until next time,

Day 18 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Happy Saturday! Not much going on around here today. We did go looking for a new secondhand store in Hendersonville. We actually managed to find it with the directions I was given several weeks ago. Of course we didn't get there before it closed for the day, but at least we know where to go now. Carl & I love visiting secondhand stores, estate sale and garage sales. We usually find things that we can use for a fraction of the retail cost. We use to have a regular route and stores we visited when we were looking for things when in Arizona. The estate sales aren't very good around here, but we shall keep looking. 

We have been seeing the advertisements for holiday movies and Carl wants to see 'The Bishop's Wife'. We can get it on Amazon free so that is what we shall be doing next. So I am off until tomorrow.

Until next time,

Day 17 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Another October birthday today.... Happy Birthday, Jodi! Sure hope you have a great day!

Today was the day I took more pictures of my items to download them into my online shops. I have been posting to VarageSale as well as ArtFire. There are multiple areas that are on VarageSale and it is like an online garage sale. It is like CraigsList, but much, much better. In my area it is only females that can join and this is mostly for safety. We meet in a public place to buy/sell what we have posted. It is amazing when we are all meeting in the local Target parking lot. I also updated my ArtFire site. Then this weekend I will be at Pumpkin Festival at The Streets of Indian Lakes

The question of the day from NaBloPoMo is, When was the last time you went to a campfire/bonfire? 

Answer: It has been so long ago I can't even remember.... I went to camp when I was kid and that was probably the last time for me. 
How about you?

Until next time,

Day 16 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

No family birthday's today, but I have been working on kitchen towels all day. I have gotten all of these done since I returned from NY last week. These will be on my rack this weekend just begging for a new home. 



NaBloPoMo question of the day is really 3:

What is your ideal hayride? I really don't have an ideal hayride. I think I have only been on 1 hayride in my life.

What would you bring? Well if I did go on a hayride I would probably take a warm blanket if the weather was cold.

Who would be there? I, of course would need to have my hubby with me and because there are 2 of my grand-daughters in the house I would have to include them too. 

I have never been a cold weather activity person. The most winter sports that I have participated in my life is one time ice skating and I stopped sliding down hill when I was in jr high school. I have always loved snuggling down in the covers with a good book. That sure hasn't changed any for me. No matter if it is raining, sunshine, cold or hot you will always find me with a book. 

What is your ideal hayride?

Day 15 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

First thing I have to say is, 'Happy Birthday, Joe'! My brother would have been 72 years old today. It doesn't seem it has been 7 years since I heard your voice and I sure do miss you!

The NaBloPoMo question of the day is, Do you usually run late, early, or on-time?

I have to say, I am usually early, but there have been times that I am late. I really hate to walk in someplace and have to jump right in the first second I get there. How about you?

Until next time,

Day 14 of NaBloPoMo challenge!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today's question is: What do you always put off to the last minute?

Answer is that I do less of this then I did in years gone by. Currently I have put off going through my e-mail, making new signs for my next craft fair, cleaning the house, and picking up my quilt cutting area. In the past my daughter can testify that she had many outfits that I never finished sewing for her. It is a joke between us quite often. 

Today I did manage to apply for my state craft license, cleaned out some of the e-mail and searched for a nursing job. I have been on this computer for the past 4 hours.... frustrating at times. Now I am off to get some more towels done for my craft fair.
