Currants turning fall colors.
This is what my garden looks like today. We had 6 inches of snow during the night, but with highs predicted to reach 48-50 degrees today, the snow won't last long. Just long enough to make morning chores more cumbersome. The sun is out now and shining with all its glory.
The young guineas still perched, not yet daring to walk in the white stuff.
Well, with the change of weather, I guess that we will be dreaming of finishing the painting of the house all winter long. We were so close to finishing it too! Hopefully we will have Indian summer coming like we used to have in Minnesota, usually this happens the end of October. We can only hope.
This is the new quilt that I have been working on for almost a year now with my quilt club. All I have left now is to add borders. Have not decided if I will go for brown or red borders.
I have also been working on crocheting a little girl, or two, ponchos. With help from my friend Sue, since I have not crocheted for about 30 years. But I guess it is like riding a bike. You never really forget.
Oh my gosh! I just read a book about the history of diamonds, rings for that matter. The book chosen by my book club titled, "The Engagements" written by J. Courtney Sullivan, 4 stars on Amazon. I was really skeptical about reading this book, but I am glad that I stuck with it. All the lives were intertwined at the end, and the history of the diamond trade was very interesting. According to the author, the most famous add of all time is "Diamonds are forever" and she tells how this add line came about. If you can stick with this book, you won't be sorry.
My reading list is getting so long, I don't know when I am going to be able to read all the books that I want to. So many talented writers on this planet. My friend Debbie is writing her first book, can't wait to get my hands on that one.
My raspberry liqueur all set up. In a few weeks, sugar is added, and it will take 3 months after this stage before it is ready. Maybe for Easter.
My little Dazzle enjoying her winter day by basking in a little sliver of sunlight.
ARE YOU READING LABELS??????????
7% honey is added to this. I need to plant more flowers, and bee habit!
