I know I don't have to do anything; y'all would totally understand but I'm bored, to be honest, so I started looking through my pictures to see if I'd overlooked anything from the past 2 visits to the farm. Of course, I did! :-)
When we were there a couple or three weeks ago, Bruce found a coral snake in the front yard -shiver-
I don't mind snakes far, far away but I don't want poisonous ones close to the house. He killed it and I made him bury it so the dogs wouldn't accidentally end up eating it.
Later, I was cleaning up the front flowerbed and decided to dump some of my clippings over the snake grave…you know, to bury it more.
While walking back, I saw a peculiar hickory nut…
It moved…Oh my goodness, cute! A very tiny, baby box turtle. I had to pick it up. Look how small it is. I put him down and sent him on his way…
I hope he finds a warm, safe place for the winter. I've always loved box turtles from the time I was a little girl and hope we'll cross paths again.
Then just this past weekend, my twin sis and I were there for the Canton Market Days. The farm had gotten a lot of rain during the week. The gauge was overflowing so 5+ inches. Bruce asked me to go check the pond to see how much water was in it. We found this:
It's full, y'all!! It hasn't been this way for the entire almost 2 years we've owned it. It's just been a small puddle. We even scared 2 ducks that were swimming in it. :D Yeah, I get excited about my pond being full.
I left the Halloween stuff up intending to switch it out this weekend. Now alas, it will stay until probably after Thanksgiving. When I do get back up there, this will go back over the mantle though. It'll be a good reminder for me as I heal:
It still remains as one of my more favorite projects. You can read the original post here.
I want to make some more signs with different sayings on them. It is on my project list for next year.
I'm also going to make more of these for the tree this year:
I will post a tutorial on making them. They are so easy to make. Plus I promise to take better pictures this year. :o)
This whole knee thing has thrown me for a loop. But as I was looking through my pictures, I came across this one. It was made as the sun shown through my blinds into the kitchen:

I had never seen it before and haven't since either but I like to think God is reminding me He's in control and everything will be ok.
My surgery is Monday. It might be awhile before I'm back. I'm hoping I'll be up crafting and painting ( I can do that sitting!) in a very short while. Until next time, be blessed.
