So to counteract all my sadness and maudlin thoughts, I decided to try and keep myself busy. It all started with catching the possum in the live trap, then I moved on to finishing a bunch of itty bitty quilt blocks. We did a couple of trips to Amish Country and to the produce market in Versailles, MO. We bought a ton of cauliflower, spaghetti squash, and butternut squash, as well as corn stalks, straw bales, pumpkins, gourds, big and little, and bushel size mums! Then we ate at our favorite Mennonite restaurant. Saturday, my friend Marilyn and I headed to Springfield to deliver all the decorating items to my son Chuck and fiancee Sherry. Their wedding is going to be in Chuck's front yard on October 16th and then they are off to Florida for a week. They will be back the following Saturday for the reception which is a huge wing ding event.
I picked the pears off our pear trees Sunday and my friend Marilyn and Steve worked them up and have them all canned for me. Now how nice is that. So here's some pictures.
Ya'll have a good week and we will talk soon. I am off to sewing studio pretty quick and will catch you later.
This is the possum and he is pissed off
Canned Pears finished at 10:00 last night
