13 posts from November 2012

have i told you lately that i've been busy?

One of my daughter-in-laws wanted me to make her an apron, so in between making Christmas gifts I jumped at the chance to make one, I needed a break from what I've been focusing on, it's not that I was getting tired of what I was doing, I just need to do something different for a while, change it up a bit.

K apron

I can't show you what I've been knitting, these are gifts as well.  I'm finally on the last one and I can't wait to be able to show you, but that will have to wait until after Christmas.

Knitted gifts

Fall garden harvest...kale and carrots taste great with homemade bread and locally raised pork.  We didn't plant a lot of kale but next year we will.  The Pioneer Woman has a recipe for fried kale in one of her cook books which is to die for.

Fried kale

Fresh food

This is a bit of what's been happening around here.

Sewing, knitting and food.  Nothing gets better than that.


road trip

Sunday we took a drive, hubby wanted to go to Farm and Fleet and one of the nearest ones is in La Crosse Wisconsin.  We always take different routes especially on a nice day.  Realizing our route will take us near the bridge that will take us over the Mississippi river we decided to take it.

Crossing the river

Big bridge

Crossing both bridges landed us in...


Big house

We saw a barge heading down the river, and since hubby loves water and boats we had to stop and watch it go by.

The barge

I'll show you more of the barge in another post.

Today is voting day, I'm going to head out this morning to vote, it's snowing right now and let me tell you the snow is not going to stop me.

Hope y'all have a wonderful day.
