And we are still doing our major marketing only about once every 8 weeks at the Army base 60 miles east of here - that's the way we did it all the time we were in the Navy and it's one habit that's hard to break.
On the right is the north side of our property.The rain ispummeling down onto the windshield. And I got to drive in it all the way to TOWN!
On Tuesday, after my dentist appointment, I went to the yarn shop to knit for a while. The owner, the intrepid and marvelous Lisa, said she was driving down to Mountain Home, Arkansas to see a friend. I asked her if she wanted company. John was at work and after a call to him to let him know what I was doing, Lisa and I took off. We took some back roads thru the misty rain and encountered lots of cattle grazing in the fields, dogs, trucks, and one lone tractor. This tractor was going about 5 miles an hour on a state highway. Slow enough that I was able to get a great shot of him with my mostly point-and-shoot digital camera. Notice the stays on the side of the load? That's tree limbs holding the feed on the bed of the trailer.
And last week I failed to make it into Round 4 of Sock Madness. But I receive all the patterns for socks in the entire competition, regardless of whether I am competing in later rounds. Round 4 started last week and it was an intriguing pattern, to say the least. Lucky Diamonds is a toe-up pattern using two different yarns, and includes what is known as an afterthought heel. Here is my progress shot. I really like this sock. I may only knit one of the pair - no one says you have to wear matching socks! I'll post a picture once the sock is done....very cool sock!
Well, I suppose that's all for now. We are expecting sun this weekend so Mr. Wonderful and his friend can work on fencing both days....not much more to do till we will have 2 pastures to stage the cows in. That will be a wonderful day!
More later. Thanks for stopping by.
