Honestly, four straight days of hard physical work is enough for me. I am beat! This was the scene yesterday after Reed and I picked and hauled all the pumpkins up to the house yard. Vines stretching from one end of the pumpkin patch to the other – twisted together and hard to pull. Here’s a pile of vines we got off one small corner of the patch.
After two days of moving plants this is what we did Sunday afternoon. This is our reward for a job well done- a gorgeous picture of pumpkins and gourds in front of my house.
Reed was tickled with the result – he placed pumpkins and gourds so artistically – he’s got a real “eye” for composition. I had him get on the ladder to get an overhead shot.
What do you think?
Some of our friends from church are coming to buy pumpkins from Reed this week. I think we should start his college fund.
Today was cleaning and laundry and some canning of pepper jelly. Someone asked me to talk about good books so I will this week. Be thinking of which books you enjoyed so you can tell us all in the comments. I keep a list of books we talk about at our monthly book club called Novel Idea and I’ll pass on some of our favorites.
I hope I’ve gone up on the roof to clean the gutters for the last time – these guys were here today putting on new gutter covers that are guaranteed – money back if they don’t work. They sound pretty sure of themselves. They weren’t cheap but I’m guessing they’re cheaper than a broken, leg, hip, arm if I fall off the roof.
One more fall quilt I forgot to post – this is from Linda Brannock, can’t remember the name.
Tonight when I can’t sleep it will come to me. Haha!
That’s all folks – rain is predicted for tonight- just what we don’t need!
