It was a "country" weekend, I am so blessed to live
where I live.........in the country!
Nature's Beauty is really starting to sing in these parts. Natural color everywhere, the trees have not changed yet but I have found some color elsewhere.
Maygan and I did something we both love to do on Saturday, that is just take a ride.
So with the loppers, gloves, boxes, wire, cutters, all rounded up...
we drove the backroads.
Stopping to gather, watch the wild turkeys, look at the views
and drive 20mph or less
The picture above is a wreath I put together when we came home. All natural finds from Goldenrod to Wild Grapes......it will not stay this pretty for long but I figured the birds would have a treat in the end.
When we came home, we had to check on the Monarch Caterpillar (yes, only one made it), still a caterpillar......hanging in the shape of a J
went outside for just a little bit
within a matter of minutes this happened!
He was still wiggling around and the crystallise is still wet
in this picture
All settled in here, the change has begun
.....now we wait for our butterfly
On Friday, after school, I stopped at a yard sale.... didn't see anything until
another shopper asked the homeowner "Do you have any yarn you'd like to sell?"
She sends her husband into the house to fetch the "box" of yarn and he comes out, toting the biggest
old cheesebox I have ever seen..........
"You wouldn't want to sell that "box" would you?", I ask. Sure we would, we are selling everything and moving into our motorhome, it's gotta go........ "YES, score"
It was covered in old wall paper......
Had that tore off before I even took it into the garage
here's Big Bertha!
must have held 200 pounds of cheese at one time
It's over 2 ft. tall and wide
So, there you have it, a recap of our weekend, not too exciting but very enjoyable.
