Wishing everyone a HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Just thought I would post a picture of some of our kittens that were born at the end of September. They are growing like weeds and getting braver by the day. They now love to come out of their little nest. There are 7 of them altogether.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

What a cold dreary, rainy day here in Southern Ontario. As usual, I took the dogs for a walk back to the cabin. I got back there, then it started to pour. No rain coat of course :( I took a couple of pics of the cabin while I was back there. Didn't want to stay back there too is black powder hunting season and I could hear lots of gunfire going off and it wasn't too far away. The dogs love to go back there each morning and Kit always takes the lead.
On another note, I am getting really excited because there is 8 of us quilting girls going on a road trip to Ohio next month. We have 4 hotel rooms booked. Yippeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Look out Ohio :)

Last night I hosted a dinner with my quilting friends. We shared some wine, food, lots of laughs and we even got some sewing done. I made some appetizers to start, then we had curried butternut squash and apple soup, followed by Feta and Swiss Chard pie with a side salad. For desert we enjoyed some Pumpkin Praline pie with Pumpkin ice cream. I always enjoy getting together with these ladies.

A couple of weeks ago our cat Sammie had a litter of kittens and they were buried deep upstairs in the hayloft of our barn. Last night we had a huge storm and she moved them all downstairs in the barn. They all have their eyes open now and here is a picture that I took of them. These are our future mousers.

Thought I'd post a picture of the Billy Jacob prints I purchased while visiting his gallery in Navaare, Ohio a couple of weeks ago while on an excursion to Berlin. I have always loved his art so now I own a couple of his pieces. I love almost all of his prints, but these two were there and framed in a black frame, so home they came with me.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

This year I thought I'd try to grow some cinderella pumpkins. I think I got a pretty good crop!
Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather. Has been a busy time for me. I've been making roasted tomato sauce, soups, apple sauce, apple pies for the freezer and now I have to cook and freeze my squash for the winter. I did manage to fit in a three day trip down to Berlin Ohio last week with my friend Michelle. We had a great time. We stayed in Roscoe Village in Cochocton, Ohio which a quaint little hamlet. I don't think I have ever seen such beautiful scenery as we saw down there. It was breathtaking. Went to Lehman's on the way down too. Here are some pictures. Stopped at a couple of great Quilt shops on the way too.
