Whew !!! What a busy day I've had !

Started out after morning chores with cake baking. It is a cloudy drizzly morning,but we need more of a rain than this.
Didn't finish my baking until after lunch then it was time to do the weekly paper work and pay bills,yuck!
With Hubbie only getting paid on the last day of the month sometimes the last weeks bills require some scrambling and this is one of those months.
Finally got things ironed out and am on my way to town.
I had 1 Avon order from last time to deliver and needed to pick up this campaign's order at my friends house.
She was sad today because she has to start dialysis treatments on Monday. She is the one if you follow my blog that spent about 4 months in the hospital last summer. She is a really bad diabetic and her legs are starting to stay swollen and her blood work is doing strange things again so they are going to start the dialysis before she gets really bad this time. I pray that this plan works,it will be trying for her and her husband as she gets 3 treatments a week and each is 4 hours long.
When I finished all my errands and made it home it was 4:00.
I unloaded the van and got things put away just as Hubbie got home from work.
We went out to work clearing brush again as the rain is supposed to get harder tonight and tomorrow.
We are almost done with the cutting and it looks so different I love it.It was almost dark when Hubbie cut this maple tree down and found this surprise inside.
Haven't had time to do any research on this design inside the tree trunk. If anyone has ever seen this before or knows anything about it please clue me in.
After supper of soup tonight and a short rest off my feet for the first time today except for when I was driving I started icing cakes.
I finished this task at 11:30.
Needless to say I'm ready for a hot bath and bed.
Thanking God tonight for the blessings of today.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, Sounds like you had a good day---along with being busy...

I have never seen a design like that inside a tree trunk before... Hope you find out about that one... If you do, please share with us.

Have a good day.

I don't know anything about the design, but I have a beautiful carved bowl made of the same type wood. The artist centered the red design in the bottom of the bowl. It is gorgeous and I love it.

I spent several days in Hendersonville when my husband had surgery at Pardee. I had hoped to pop down to the market to meet you, but there was no time. One day I know our paths will cross.
