THE HEAT IS GONE-ANOTHER ATTIC FIND-MINNIE’S DOCTOR VISIT-A RARE SPOTTING

10 07 2014

GREETINGS

THE HEAT IS GONE

Violent thunderstorms and torrential rains were suppose to come last night as the humidity left and cooler air came in.  The clouds sure looked like that was going to happen.

OTHER ATTIC FINDS

Today I found a few things.  Some post cards of Holyoke from the 40’s.  These were sent from my Dad while he was in China to his bride to be.

They described Holyoke which my Mother had never seen and where she would live a good part of her life.

The roasting pan  belonged to my Grandmother who passed away before my Mom and Dad were married.  As a child I remember the wonderful meals that were cooked in that pan.

MINNIE’S VISIT

She certainly doesn’t like going to the Vets.  It was a quick visit today just  having a blood draw and thats more than enough for little Minnie.  Her weight has dropped from 6.4 pounds to 6.2 pounds in spite of my efforts to get her to eat and drink.  She now drinks out of water glasses and is not interested in cat dishes at all.  Her test came out good so she does not need to go back for three months.  I hope I can increase her weight some before she goes back.  Coming home from the vet’s there was a lone baby Canadian Goose crossing the road.

A  RARE SPOTTING

Yesterday afternoon I went to pick up 5 bales of hay at Joe’s.  I was almost at his house when I passed a stone cellar hole where a house once stood and there was a coyote.  I thought it was a wolf  but came home and looked it up on the internet and it was a coyote.  It was a beautiful regal  creature one that I wouldn’t like to see near my house although I know there are some on the range across from me.  No pictures by the time I turned my camera on it was gone.

Many thanks for reading my blog on this delightful day.   Carole

SHEEP AND THE BARN-FINDING A LOCKER HOOKED FLAG AND OTHER SURPRISESI

6 07 2014

GREETING,

While I am writing this fireworks at being shot off at a neighboring farm.  This happens on holidays throughout the year.  I can watch them nicely from my bedroom or porch.  It was the best summer day with cooler,  less humid weather and nice breezes.

THE SHEEP AND THE BARN

Chris and I started the barn this morning and the worse of it is done.  They were able to eat some grass today and tomorrow I  will move the fence further down the path/LOC

THE FLAG LOCKER HOOKED RUG

I decided to work in the attic for 15 or 20 minutes this morning.  I saw this blanket bag laying on the floor.  It was full of Aunt Lydia’s yarn and a afghan I started years ago.  I want to finish it but have no idea where the pattern is.

 I brought the bag out to the porch to see if there was mice damage and was glad to report that there wasn’t and at the bottom of the bag was this flag rug, It has to be at least 20 or more years old.

 I do like it.  It does need some minor repairs.  What a find, I am sure I will find more treasures cleaning out the attic.

Chris leaves tomorrow for Boy Scout camp and will be back in a week.  No news from Ricky, I hope he is doing well in school and having a good time too.

Many thanks for reading my blog today.  Carole
