Catching up?!?!

WOW, the month is nearly over and I am trying to catch up....I made it thru Thanksgiving, a craft show, cancer diagnosis on my dad, our son flying out to Vegas to work the National Rodeo Finals and I am feeling a bit tired.
My booth at the craft fair.....it was busy with lookers, but selling was a bit slow for everyone.  My daughter and I had a great time visiting and spending the day together. 

"Milly"....spent the day helping mommy and gram and great nana  at the craft fair....what a little trooper.  She took a couple naps and visited all our guests....played and was such a good little girl!!!  Gram's weekend was complete!!

Weather Here.....

The poor cottonwood is naked and cold!!  We have had very heavy frosts since Sept. 9th and today was very foggy.....Fog didn't lift until about 10:30am.  Brrrrrrrr...makes a person want to stay inside and sew or bake cinnamon rolls!!
I have a follower from Australia and she posted some outdoor pictures and it looks beautiful there....so I thought I would show here what is going on here.  Beauty lies in the eye of the behold and I think the sun is beautiful, but the cold has a beauty of its own.  I love seeing and learning about others that follow my blog--I think we all have things to teach each other!  I am thankful to the ladies that post and give me a chance to learn from them.  Bless you !!!!!

Getting Ready for a show......

I am finding that getting ready for any type of show is a big mess.....I have things strewed from one end of the sewing room to the other and it overflows into the next two room.....I am anxious to get things done and get organized and cleaned!!! 
See everything is everywhere!!!  I find myself going in circles....but I know there is an end to the mess. 
I decided to start packing the finished projects into a suitcase, so they are all confined....it seems to be helping.  The show is only 2 weeks from today, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  I had 1 issue with all the mess....my husband, sweet man that he is, calls at about 10:30am and says "Hey hun, are you able to have something ready for about 14 men by about 5:30 or 6:00pm. to eat?"...Of course, I am thinking to myself........"ARE YOU SERIOUS???,  I HAVE THINGS EVERYWHERE!!!".  You know, I got busy and put on a meal for a crew from the 6666 (Four 6's) Ranch from Texas.  Pulled it off with about an hour to spare....cleaned, baked and made green pork chile.  They are a great group of guys, ranging in age from 25 all the way to 82 and a very polite, thankful group of gentlemen!!!  I was honored to feed and meet the group.   God blessed us with a wonderful time of visiting, sharing and laughing with a great crew....they had started in the north(Montana) and ended in  our area before heading home.   They had 3 trailers with about 20 head of horses to brand all the cattle they have turned out due to the drought in Texas.  Remind you these men had only been away from home for about a week and got all the branding done.  Great Guys!!!!
Today will be back to the sewing room and work really hard on getting more done for the show and back to making big messes....strewing!!

Girl's retreat!!!

Over the weekend I got to spend time with 2 of my 3 younger sisters and our mom....we went to a Beth Moore Conference....WHAT A BLESSING the whole weekend was.  We decided to share a room instead of getting 2 rooms....4 girls to a motel room....we did pretty darn well, it only took the 4 of us an hour to get ready and we went down to have breakfast and to the conference with 15 minutes to spare!!!!
At the Event Center....we had a great time!!! Beth Moore is such an uplifting speaker and we shared this time together as women of God....AMAZING!  We are already planning our "girl's retreat" for next year....our prayer is that our baby sister and my daughter will be able to attend.
