Gifts for the 25th

Okay - Just so you know - I wanted some moisture. Our pastures needed some moisture. They ( always - I wonder - who is "they") predicted 4-10 inches of snow in 24 hours - we got 12 inches in less than 2 hours and it is still snowing.

And you know that when it snows you Need stuff right? My poor horse came in late last nite with an eye wound, so I called the Vet this morning. Thank goodness he was in the neighborhood ( 7 miles away) treating a pig... and he came right out. By the time we finished with the horse - I had snow in my boots, in my sweatshirt, down my.. well everywhere!!! I got into the house and the boys laughed at me, I was dripping everywhere!!

The horse is going to be okay, I am now dry, the snow is still blowing - all we need is Wrangler Man to be home and life will be good!

Yesterday was the gift for the 25th day. And although this is not a gift for someone else - it is a gift for my couch. And it has to be quilted by Christmas - I hope I can do it. My Couch is counting on it! The top is now done. It is the Carolina Crossroads Mystery from Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville.com . I think the pattern is now in her Scraps and Shirttails book. Only took me a year and a half... I am that quick!!

Alright - off to show the boys up on Wii bowling, wish me luck!
