Thursday Threesome ~ Fall Harvest Festival

October 5, 2006 at 5:58 am (Thursday Threesome)

Thursday Threesome

::Fall Harvest Festival::

Onesome: Fall– (ing) into “The Decorating Season”? How about it: do you have your Halloween Tree up and decorated yet? …or maybe just a plastic pumpkin sitting on the table <g>? …something in between? Inquiring minds and all that… ~ Sorry to disappoint, but don’t do Halloween.  I do want to say though that this Holiday has changed from when I was a little girl.  I have seen more people go nuts decorating for Halloween more than they do for Christmas! 

Twosome: Harvest– time? What crops are grown in your area (call it fifty miles) that are coming out of the fields this Fall? ~ Cotton and soybeans are huge this time of year.  Sweet potatoes are good if we had a drier summer.  Tobacco ends it’s season this month.

Threesome: Festival– Do you have a County Fair or Harvest Fest happening in Autumn? …or do you wait until the sap flows? ~ Our huge Coastal Carolina Fair starts on October 26, 2006 – cannot wait!!!

Wednesday Mind Hump

October 4, 2006 at 5:21 am (Wednesday Mind Hump)

Today is Visit Your Cousin In Prison Day. Yikes! by BlogDrive Insanity! 
 Apple pie or pumpkin pie? ~ By all means, pumpkin.  I don’t like fruit pies in general, but I will eat creamy pies like custard and pumpkin!
 Cars or SUVs? ~ SUV’s – never thought I would be one to say that but I adore my 21 Ford Explorer – actually the best vehicle I have EVER had!
 Pen or pencil? ~ Really cannot stand using a pencil.  Medium, cheap Bic blue pens are my fave.
 Electric guitar or acoustic guitar? ~ Acoustic 12 string!  What a sound!
 Shower or bath? ~ Shower – a bath is only for those times when my body hurts.
 Daffy Duck or Yogi Bear? ~  Daffy, only because he slobbers when he talks!  LOL
 Butter on a biscuit or jam on a biscuit? ~ If I am going to eat a biscuit, I like butter AND strawberry jam.
 Bringing sexy back or dropping it like it’s hot? ~ Huh?

What? No Crochet???

October 3, 2006 at 8:27 pm (Journaling)

In looking over my blog over the past few weeks you will notice not that much crocheting going on.  Why is that you may wonder?  It’s because I am in the FINAL stages of the Autumn Secret Pal Swap at the ‘Ville.  I have been crocheting my little fingers to the bone, but I can’t put it on my blog for fear my secret pal will find out who I am!  Once she gets the big REVEAL package I will post everything I sent her.

I was accepted to a new swap that will last till next year!  This is a swap not associated with the ‘Ville, and it’s located here.  That one starts on the 15th, and I cannot WAIT to see who my partner is!!!

I am also doing a “Hubby Swap” – ok, it’s not what your thinking.  This is a swap where we make things for our significant others!  I already got my partner for this one!  It will be so exciting!!!  She has a little 5 month old son and she said it would be cool to have something matching for her son AND her husband.  Boy the wheels are turning now!

Also, I am involved in making a comfort-ghan for someone who I dearly love and is going thru a rough time right now.  The good ladies at the ‘Ville have been so generous with their time and yarn to help me with some squares towards this endeavor.  I will be posting some pics later on in the week as the squares come in.  I think I am going to dedicate a page to the project.

So as you can see, I have been busy.  You just don’t see it!  LOL

Apple Harvest

1. Have you every picked apples? ~ Never – wait, unless you consider Mountain Apples REAL apples!  Then yes, I have picked apples! 

2. Have you every bobbed for apples? ~ Never

3. What is your favorite apple desert? ~ I don’t really like pies in general, especially fruit pies.  But when I was living in Pittsburgh, PA there was this place called “King’s” restaurant we went to ALOT.  They had hot apple pie and cinnamon ice cream, the combination was to DIE for!

4. What kind of apples do you prefer? ~ Granny Smith, hands down – with peanut butter.

5. Do you beleive that an “apple a day” keeps the doctor away? ~ I think there is something in apples that help you stay healthy.  I do believe that if we ate MORE LIVE food every day there wouldn’t be so much sickness.

Kitchen Pants and Coasters

September 30, 2006 at 5:29 pm (Kitchen)

These are just about the cutest things ever.  When I saw the pattern, I just had to make them for my sister!!!  I sent them to her and she just loved them.  Here is the pattern for the “kitchen pants”, here is the pattern for the coasters.  I used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton in Salt and Pepper.  I pretty much followed the pattern as is, except that I put an edging on both.  On the pants I put the basic sc edging, and on the coasters I did the reverse sc thing.

Friday Feast

Feast One Hundred & Thirteen

Appetizer ~ What is your favorite herb or spice? ~ Garlic Powder/Garlic Salt

Soup ~ Name a song you like but haven’t heard in a long time. ~ Honey by Bobby Goldsboro

Salad ~ If you were to take just one minute to write down as many things as you can think of that you need (not want) to do, approximately how many things would there be? ~ Maybe about 3 or 4, and one would definitely be to EXERCISE!

Main Course ~ Tell something interesting about one of your family members (nothing scandalous, please, just something unique). ~  My sister is an excellent hula dancer, so good in fact that she used to work for Don Ho!

Dessert ~ What’s the latest you’ve ever stayed awake? ~  I remember making it almost 30 something hours once when I was 15 – we were in the middle of a hurricane in FWB, FL – and it’s impossible to sleep with a hurricane.  It was Hurricane Eloise.

Generation After Generation

September 28, 2006 at 2:29 pm (Journaling)

My daughter and I were sitting at a meeting last night paying attention to the conductor when all of a sudden I get this note passed to me:


I love you, do you love me?  Yes or No

Love, Me

Now this is exactly what I used to do with MY mother and sister, pass them little notes asking them forever if they loved me.  When I got this from my daughter, tears welled up and nostalgia crept into the brain.  It was a very touching moment.  I love my daughter, can you tell???
