THE FAIR-NEW BAGS FROM CHIRSTA-BEETS-COSMO

15 09 2015

GREETINGS

Last night was chilly, I ended up closing most of the windows.  I am sowing bringing the porch plants in and have put my Amaryllis to bed for 6 weeks.

THE FAIR

The fair was a wonderful event which I will do again next year.  Lots of friends came including Eliza  fellow blogger and Chris a student of mine.  More than half of the heating pads I made flew off the table.

NEW BAGS FROM CHRISTA

I love Christa’s bags and this latest one is my favorite.  I carry my camera and iPad almost everywhere I go.  I don’t use a bulky computer bad but usually put it in my Purse.  This zippered bag is ideal for the camera, which fits into the pocket and my iPad. .  The long handle slips around my head and over my shoulder and is so secure.  She is making more so e-mail me if you are interested.

BEETS

I have pulled up the beets and will get going on canning them soon.  They are in the way of the back excavation.   To say that I planted them late I had a great crop.

Fennel, sting beans, peppers and cherry tomatoes still doing well.

COSMO AND SAM

He is doing well, still not fond of the other kitties but that comes in time.  I am so glad that I got him he is a great addition to my cat famiy

He has such wonderful markings.

Poor Sam got locked in my sewing room for a day.  I heard his meowing from the porch and he was in the South bedroom window crying for help.  How smart of him.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I  hope you have a wonderful day.  We are in for a wonderful spell of warm days and cool nights.  Wonderful!





A NEW ARRIVAL-FRANKLIN COUNTY FAIR-GOLDENROD SALVE

10 09 2015

GREETINGS

Much needed rain has arrived.  Temps lower and humidity leaving for the weekend.

A NEW ARRIVAL

I have been wanting another white cat and thought that this summer I would really start actively looking.  I follow Northampton Vets on Facebook and last week there was a posting about a  mostly white cat that needed a home.  I sent and e-mail and Cosmo is now here.   Lots of effort went into rehoming Cosmo, from his original owner who took extraordinary care of him to Genevieve who brought him here and Northampton Vets who took such loving care of him, I thank them all so much.

He has had an eye removed, he could never see out of it and it was troublesome and some dental work done by the clinic.

 He is approximately  8 years old and a very big cat.  He cried most of the night last night missing his family and in unfamiliar surroundings.  It will take some time for him to be adjusted.  Of course the other cats are curious and Willie the meekest of the cat family wanted to come into the bedroom.  He was greeted with some loud hissing sounds and retreated to the window sill.

I  will slowly introduce the cats.

This coming weekend I am vending at this wonderful old fair.  There is a craft tent there.  Come visit and look for me.  I have been busy making all sorts of things an I will have Christa’s Feed bags there too.

GOLDENROD SALVE

I just read an article on Goldenrod Save for aches and Pains so I have decided to make a trail batch .

I have gathered Golden Rod , added it to a good quality olive oil and it will infuse for a month or so  In the meantime I will gather and dry some goldenrod just in case the salve works well.  

Many thanks for reading my blog on his cloudy, rainy day.  Cool air is now drifting in the windows and clearing a the humidity out.  Have a wonderful day.   Carole
