Today was a day where I did alittle bit of a lot of things--(did you get that??)
First a friend picked me and we did some errands--she had some to do and I had a couple--so we were each other's list--as we are going down the highway--she say's I made list--only it's still home on the table--so don't let me forget too----
And I was doing the same to her!!! At one of her stops over here on our main street where she parked you could look straight up the street and I took this picture--
this was quite a ways away--1/4 mile or so--so discovered a new longer range button on my camera that I did not know I had!!!! I love old houses!!!
Then we went up to the village of Odessa--she had to drop off a cake for a church supper and I needed to go to the Library as a book was in that I wanted to read--
Yep--the Librarian ordered this so I could read it--I did donate $5 towards it--but did not think anything about it--until I got home and opened the cover to start reading it and found this--
Wow--this is not the first time she has done this--but I really was surprised--I am also surprised by the fact that I know, and have been on some of the blog sites the author is talking about--good for me!!!!
Then we stopped at the Natural food store as I had forgotten my eggs and rice milk yesterday when I was there!!!
This afternoon I--
quilted on the 30's quilt as I was cold and it was sooo warm on my lap--got two more blocks done--would like to get it done before really hot weather gets here--
did a load of laundry--yep--actually did it early--so one of Monday's jobs is done!!!!
Did some gardening---inside that is--watered all my house plants!!!!
Cooked--well--well--I guess I mean I put some steak fries in the toaster oven and heated up some fish I had in the refrig and finished up some fruit I had in the refrig!!!
OH--last night I finished reading this book--
Has anyone else read it???? was different--definitely gives you a different outlook on pigs-- OH---talking about pigs--I do have a pig story!!!!
***** When I was about 5years old my parents bought a nice farm out in the country-- and with the farm came some pigs--the pig pen was directly across the street from the house--this was around the first part of May--cause we were also having a birthday party that day for me--my cousin David and his mother--all of us have birthdays that first week--one of David's older brothers was helping my dad clear some brush away from a couple little buildings along side the house--one of them being the "out" house!!! well somehow he managed to get the fire out of control and it started burning the little buildings
--so--Mom sent us "kids" with the frosting pan to lick out--across the road to pig pen so keep us out of the way of the cars and fire trucks!!!! My Dad saved the back end of the house--but we lost the two little buildings--and for the first time in my life I was "up close" to pigs!!! I remember them being pink and I do believe they were baby size--but boy could they make a "noise"!!!!!
