I've been meaning to go for a visit on Patrice's porch of Everyday Ruralty but somehow there's something that comes up and I have to go elsewhere.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to link up with Patrice. I made the link this morning and my name is still on her page but I didn't carried it through. I wonder if it will link just the same. I'll find out.

Here are her questions for today.

1.  What does your everyday dished looks like?
      Plain white restaurant type dishes, assorted mugs.

2.  What shoes are you likely to throw on in a pinch right now? Go to shoes.

3.  What was the last gift you were given?
     I received these this afternoon from my daughter Christine

4.  What was the first face you saw this morning?
     My face in the mirror.

5.  What cup or mug you are most likely to grab for your tea or coffee? What's your "cuppa" cup?
      For coffee, I have a tall Christmas mug with the picture of a snowman on it, and tea is a smaller Dollar Store mug with the picture of a little finch on it.

I hate to do two post in one but what ta da heck?  I've got to stop this procrastination.

I had problems with my iMac having dozens of lines on the screen from burnt out pixels. I'm now using a small MacBook Pro with my little Microsoft wireless mouse and I love it. My other computer is getting slow and the laptop is so much faster.

This week I've been thinking of two of my lovely blogger friends who are going through some real rough time with chemo, some of you know them, Leontien and Donna. Please keep them in your prayers asking God for the grace of courage and strength to fight this awful disease, cancer.

I've got my iPhoto library finally upgraded and was having fun with the new technology. Just amazing what you can do with the photo library.

Let see what else has happened this past week. I've got three new heifer calves, that is very good. My injured older calf had to be put down because the extend of her injuries and I couldn't bear seeing her suffer, it's is always sad to loose an animal but a fact of life on the farm. I just had to pull up my big girl panties and make the decision to have her put down and burried. My husband had to do that dreadful task. It's not a pleasant job.

I purchased two more Rug hooking books to add to the other one I bought recently on

I  finished my UFO and discovered that it was a king size quilt . I've got it on the old bed in the spare bedroom.  It's much lower than the one in my own bedroom. The quilting has taken a lot of my spare time lately. It was a big project.

I made my own binding and sewed it on the back by machine and in the front by hand

I did a lot of baking and I worked cutting pies at the church supper on Sunday and my son covered for me at work in the afternoon.
I calculated three months of HST sales tax for the farm, did payroll Deductions and paid bills online, did some banking. I did some weeding in one flowerbed.

The fiddleheads are up but my back was so sore so I didn't go picking and today it was too wet to pick.

Now that my UFO has been classified I'm getting ready to resume hooking my Childhood Memories rug, whoo hooo......

Thanks for coming with me to Patrice's porch and visit with me.  I enjoy getting your comments.
Have a safe weekend, it's just around the corner.  JB
