A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Good morning! Today is a very special day, it is Kit's birthday today and she is turning 6. I adopted her 3 years ago yesterday. She is looking a little "chubby" right now because there is so much snow on our farm, so we haven't been getting our daily walks in. I took a couple of pictures of her yesterday to post for her special day. I just love her so much.
Happy Birthday Kit!

READY FOR VALENTINE'S DAY!

Happy Sunday folks! I just thought I would share a tablerunner I just finished for Valentine's day.
I made 2 last year and sold one and gave another away in a Blog Swap, so this one is mine!
I love how it turned out. I designed the pattern too.

CHRISTMAS

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a wonderful time but ate way too much. Wish we had a little snow.
Phone calls from loved ones made the day. Would have loved to hear from our niece and nephew, but I guess they were busy.
Anyway I hope everyone has a great week and are thinking about their New Year's resolutions.
Blessings ~ Janet

GIRLFRIEND'S GATHERING

Well tonight was wonderful. Filled with good food and good friends. Laughing and enjoying each others company while we sat and talked.  The smell of Christmas greenery filled the air and the flicker of candle light made for a cozy setting. What a great way to spend an evening with great Quilting friends. Here are a couple of pictures of the Appetizers before dinner.

A BAD FLARE UP

This has been a really bad week. Some of you know that I have bad hips and for the most part, they are ok. I usually walk my dogs back to the bush each day and they don't usually bother me.....BUT every now and then they flare up. This week has been really bad. I have been able to sleep in bed for about 4 hours on my back, but then I have to come downstairs and sleep sitting up on the couch for the rest of the night. Last night I couldn't even walk without being in such pain. I cannot take pain medication, so I just have to put up with it. Hopefully it will be a little better by the weekend. The cause we figure is riding horses too much for too many years. I do know of other people who have this from riding. My neighbour had to have both of his hips replaced from operating his backhoe for years. This damp rainy weather does not help either. Hoping for some sun and colder weather.
Hope you are all ready for Christmas.

THE VIEW FROM MY SEWING ROOM

I took a couple of pictures of my girls roaming around the yard. It is a view from my sewing room. Been busy today putting in 2 loads of firewood, cleaning windows, vacuuming, and the list goes on. Getting ready for a "Girlfriends" gathering this week at my house. I don't know if I will ever get caught up. I am inviting some of my special friends over for an evening and dinner.
I hope you all had a great weekend.
~Janet
The girls enjoyed a day out.

THE LAST PUMPKIN

Today was so mild I did some final clean up in the yard. I cut open this pumpkin and the chickens and cats were going crazy over it. 
I am sure it will be all gone in a couple of hours.
I hope everyone is having a great Sunday.

SNOW

Last night we got our first significant snowfall. There were only three hens that decided to come out and check out the snow. A rooster also came out, but ran off when he saw my iPad.
I really do love this snow.

A SAD TIME

Last night my beloved cat Kenya passed away. I have been nursing her for weeks. She had a liver disease and my Vet told me it was a 50/50 chance whether she would make it. I guess it was not meant to be. I brought her home on the plane 3,000 miles after my father passed away 2 and a half years ago. I made a promise to him I would look after her if anything were to happen to him.
Kenya was not a cuddle cat by any means, but she would sit on the arm of the sofa and love me to rub her head. If I stopped, she would put her paw on me as if to say........more please. I am sure she knew she was truly loved and I will miss her deeply. She is now buried on our farm.
This is a picture of her shortly after she came home to live with us.
