After chores I was determined not to forget to put an ad for the silkie roosters I have in a separate house on Craigslist so I did it right then.I very seldom ever get on the computer during the day but this needed to get done today !
I baked cakes until lunch time, 6 caramel and 2 pound cakes. I have no idea what sales will be like tomorrow with the temperatures expected to be near 60 with nice sunshine. I may not have enough but I am going to take a chance.
After lunch I treated myself to some estate sale shopping. I spent all of $3 so I surely didn't break my budget today. In one of the sales I saw these 2 old photos in these magnificent old frames. I stared at these a long time thinking and wondering who the folks in them were and how such family treasures could end up in an estate sale with no apparent ownership.
When I got home it was time to start on a sewing schedule . I have had a stack of bonnets and aprons cut out for several weeks and they haven't been touched. I have decide that after picking g-son up from school each afternoon I will spend at least 30 minutes in my office on the sewing machine that I moved to the middle of the room so I could sew more easily. After 30 minutes I had these two baby bonnets finished.
I got a call about my silkie ad and they came at 6:00 to pick them up. They were a nice Vietnamese couple with three young boys,12, 7 and a sleeping baby left in the car. The 2 older boys loved all the animals on our farm especially Sadie the dog.
I was glad to see those 6 roosters go as they were getting very antsy in that small cage.
I have my first silkie hen setter tonight but didn't leave eggs under her yet as I want o make sure she doesn't change her mind.
I iced my caramel cakes tonight while hubbie watched TV. Talked to #2 son, the heat pump repairman is coming Monday morning. Daughter dropped off her baked goods tonight so she can catch a few extra winks in the morning before hosting a Glory Girls Conference for 6th - 12th grade girls at the Bible institute across from our church.
Enjoying tonight as the last on regular time before daylight saving time starts tomorrow night,yuck !!
I dread the early mornings next week ! It usually takes me a couple weeks to settle into the new time change. One good thing about it for awhile will be that the sun won't be up and directly in my eyes as I take g-son to school each morning. That's about the only good thing I can think of !!! Most people like the longer evenings but for me not so much as that just adds work time to my day !
Grateful for the blessings from God today as He is always beside me in all that I do.
Good Night and God Bless.
