 I had a busy Christmas.
The weather was warm so we didn't have to worry about driving
in the snow. We drive to Lake Erie Christmas eve.
My FIL's house is right by the water.
In the summertime it is a busy place.
The winter is so much calmer.
This is a snowman my friend made.

You never know what the
 weather will be like in October.

Autumn Leaves Rug

 Happy Tuesday!
This is the latest fall rug
I've hooked!
The design is by Lynn Ann Davis.
 This morning when I was letting my chickens out, I
noticed our zucchini.
It was planted very late.

blooming and going up the blue spruce.
Looked like garland.
