Funny what the cold weather will make me do. We had frost on the pumpkins this morning, so I put on my winter jacket and gloves and went to work and I just couldn't keep my hands warm working in the barn as all the windows were wide opened.

I harvested my serendipity pumpkins family that were covering my lower deck, all 4 of them came from one seed that just decided to sprout by the compost.  Cute little family heh

Today I also took the cucumber supports out of the garden, harvested my carrots, zucchinis, and took the tomato cages and peppers cages out. (no pictures of my work in the garden)

It was cold enough to make me take my Childhood Memories rug out of storage and I pulled some strips out and fixed the twisted ribbon border that was bugging me and even hooked several strips of wool. I needed to cut more wool so I put it aside for this evening. Sorry for the bad lighting.

Also today I worked on my King size quilt that I started in 2008. I've been working on it every day this week for a little while before bed time. Sorry again for the bad lighting. The leaves are dark green.

Another thing that I decided to tackle today was to back up some of my iPhoto library. I did all 2008 pictures on a DVD and will do 2009 tomorrow. I had never attempted to burn a DVD and this was a first for me. I take baby steps on my computer and I like little challenges like that.

Thanks for your visit and please entertain me with your comments. A big WELCOME  to all my new blogger followers. I hope that you will stop by for a visit often. Check out my wool GIVEAWAY  on my previous post if you haven't done so yet.   JB
