I have been running around like a chicken with her ... you know what cut off!

Could I please have one extra day this week?

I have a show this weekend, nothing big but it takes just as much prep work.  My totes are packed, tables and display are loaded in hubby's truck, just need to grab some handwork to keep my fingers busy. 
Friday morning will come early enough....

Maygan was home from school with a stomach bug today.  So in between caring for my her, I set up a PictureTrail...  it's just a mish-mash of pictures.  Some of my makings, gardens, photography, etc.
If you want to visit, here is the link

Hopefully, Maygan will be well and able to go to school tomorrow so I can run to town for groceries, the cupboards are becoming bare (well, not really, I'm a food stockpiler, but bare looking to me)

Oh, and yes, it is still raining
Webs are now forming between my toes

Pictures from the Chainsaw Carving Festival we attended on Mother's Day Weekend..
I am in awe of the art that can be produced with a CHAINSAW, they do use Dremels and such for some of the fine detail

Black Bear
Phoenix Rising
Honey Bear
Diving Otter
Unfinished Lamb

This piece was Awesome!  It was one of many pieces in the auction, proceeds from the auction benefits the local volunteer fire dept.  Sold for $1300.00.

Caricature Bench

It was carved by a lady carver, such detail...

Blessings to all and to all a good night,
