I put the front door rug mat outside b/c I’m going to mop the little bit of linoleum at the front door. There was a box there from a bulb place.

I was totally perplexed…. I hadn’t heard anyone come today and neither did I order bulbs for dh to plant outside this fall.

They were addressed to me so I opened them. (Sometimes they leave stuff here for in-laws but usually when they already have something for me.) I see it was billed to MM9.

SHE SENT ME FLOWERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you SO much!

I’m thinking they may grow up to be daffodils since the flower poll the other day revealed my favorite. You are too much dearie!!

Many hugs all around!!

I’ll keep you posted. For now, they look like this but have a few little green sprouts down in there.

See the newly painted wall.

I LOVE BULBS!!!

Monkey Makeover

What a terrific day today! My SL online friend, MM9, had asked for help to fix her son’s well-loved sock monkey. I volunteered and today they came to the farm to visit my newly invented monkey hospital.

I assured the dear monkey owner that the monkey couldn’t feel a thing as I worked. I added some stuffing and closed the holes with needle and thread.

His biggest hole was in his back so I made a vest for him. The back of the vest is sewed to the monkey completely and the front of the vest is just sewed down on the sides. The front of the vest opens w/ a velcro tab so dear owner can still see the outline of the heart stitched on his front.

It was such a treat to make them so happy and to spend a few short hours in dear fellowship with another homeschooling mom. She is a treasure!

Phil helped out with a visit to see some baby pigs and the dear children were delighted to hold one for a picture. We then saw the big pigs in the finishing building. Her ds #2 was an eager one so we walked allll the way to the other end to see them all!

Then the children got a tractor ride with Phil while I finished sewing and we mom’s got warm inside. She says they pay good money for farm tours and I suggested she return here for free.

It was so fun to have littles in the house again.


I snuggled a warm & cuddly 7 month old girl. Ahhhh…..


I had a little 5 y/o helper to get me thread or more stuffing. She was delighted w/ a ribbon for her wrist.

I enjoyed seeing an eager 7 y/o who wanted to ride and see and hold the pig.

…And one smiling 9 y/o with a whole dear friend to sleep with tonight.

Family Times

We had a fun visit with my parents from Tuesday afternoon until Saturday morning.

Friday morning K showed them some of her projects that she has already turned in and some in pictures on her laptop.

Mom & Dad hadn’t met Capt. Green yet so JP had him out for a meet & greet. Green is partial to JP so doesn’t allow anyone else to pet him but we can look from a short distance.

JP & Green are good buddies. They play computer games together sometimes and when JP laughs, Green cackles!

I know this one is blurry of Green but look at JP’s cute smile. Mom just had to include it!

Green was lonely at his last house and is feather-plucked. He is getting better here and growing new feathers. He likes the attention from JP and has responded very well to a change in diet. His laughing and his few word vocabulary make his appearance worth it!

Thanksgiving Morning


We had a nice inch of snow last night and a beautiful sunrise this morning. Not much sleeping in here!

I made carb & sugar-free muffins and Phil brought donuts home last night so everyone had a special treat for breakfast.

The turkey is in the oven and now it is time for a bit of Macy’s parade and then our movie-a-thon. Hopefully family pictures will come later.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
