Good morning!! Hope you are all doing well. It is raining here......again. I think it's been close to 30 of the last 40 days or something that we have had at least a little rain. I am beginning to think I need to look for ark plans. I know so many have it so much worse and I continue to keep them in my prayers. Hubby has almost all of the corn planted and over half of the beans. Won't take long to finish when it does dry out. Again, we are very fortunate in this aspect. There are many not too far from us who haven't started. Oh, the stress of farm life.
I had some running to do last week and stopped at the antique store on my way home. There were a few really primitive items, but boy were they expensive. Darn!! I spotted this butter churn on the last pass through. I looked it over and really liked it, plus it was a really good price. Then I started thinking I really didn't need it so I walked out of the booth and was getting ready to leave. It was then that the piece "spoke" to me. Now, I tell you this because I know all of you primitive lovers know exactly what I mean. It was like I could imagine all of the women and children over the years using that butter churn as part of their everyday routine. Well, now I couldn't just leave it there, right? So back I went and picked it up. So glad I listened to those voices!!
Well, before the butter churn encounter, I was on eBay one day because I was tired of the rain and didn't have the ambition to clean......not a good way to use extra time!! I spotted this child's buggy seat and fell in love. Again, the voices kept telling me stories of all the little ones who sat in this seat going from here to there!! Anyway, I bid. Then I was promptly outbid. So I tried again and for a time thought it was going to be mine. Well, I was gone before the end of the auction but came home with under 5 minutes to go and found myself outbid yet again. I told myself I wasn't going to bid anymore. When does that ever work?? So I raised the bid $1 thinking that was a safe bid because certainly that little bid wouldn't mean much. Well, guess what? That's all it took and it was mine!!! It came yesterday, and I have it sitting on my dryer with some goodies in it. It is such a neat size that I can put it just about anywhere. So moral of the story......don't spend extra time on eBay and don't think a $1 bid won't get you anything!!
One last picture I had to share. Last week on one of the nice weather days, I put the cats outside. I love how JoJo is just relaxing on the swing while Gabby has that look of "Let me inside ............now!!" The funny thing is that Gabby had only been out about a minute. Talk about brave!!
Well, that's all for today. Need to get some work done before heading off to a track meet. Please keep the rain away, please keep the rain away...................
