Woolie Wednesday

Good Woolie Wednesday Friends.
I've learned alot the past two years.
Some not so good and some very good.
The best thing is,I can choose my happy. 
I started this woolie blankie last year and finally yesterday I finished.
Fall is my Happy place.
So bring on the Fall a month early ..
The weather sure feels like it here in Ole Pa.
My eyes are on the sunshine and woolie pumpkins are dancing in my head.

He creates beautiful things...
And my heart is glad...

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

Peek A Boo

Morning Friends.
I am still battling the cucumber beetle and 
squash bug.
I check my boards and pluck.
(wooden boards placed around plants, attract the bugs)
I also use a organic spray neem oil.

 Almost as much as wool and buttons.

I must terminate the bugs!
Save the pumpkins and squash!

One of my new favorite foods is spaghetti squash.
Peek a boo I see seven so far.

(Bing and the Andrew Sisters)

I'd rather be on my little farm than emperor of the world.

Keeping my eyes towards the Sunshine.

I'm off to make some old fashioned sugar cake.
Have you ever heard of that?
Mannie Day I just love old fashioned anything.

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Growing and preserving food is just plain ole good for the soul.
I truly think I was born in the wrong era.
I love canning.
First I was jamming and now there is a whole lot of pickling going on.
I'm blessed with a wonderful garden this year.
Even if my tomatoes are growing very slow.

I don't even mind hunting the squash bugs off my plants.
Just call me the squash bug terminator.

I won't even be begin to tell you how good hoeing is for the spirit !?!

Keeping my eyes towards the Sunshine
