Hodgepodge...

I know I've been slacking in the posting department, and in order to rectify that to some small degree I'm posting this Hodgepodge. 
 ~~~
The weather here has been much like the rest of the country, changeable... 


 ~~~ 
I drive by this immaculate little working farmstead at least twice a month.  Neat as a pin, the whole place.



~~~
Finally, found a rug for the 'not so great' room. Been looking every since I moved in, all were way too expensive.  This wool 9x10 in the colors and a pattern I like was waiting for me to find it at goodwill for $27.  Only has one small frayed corner, which I can easily repair, and needs a good cleaning, but that will wait for warmer weather.



Willie has taken it upon himself to watch over it

Participated in the church's blood sucker event yesterday. They were giving these T shirts to donors, go figure.  I didn't get the reference (haven't watched the Game of Thrones series) to "I bled for the Throne" til they explained.

One of the grandkids will like it.

 I was given this HS class, award winning, original design, pottery napkin holder recently...


 (I love this thing, it makes me laugh every time...)
by the granddaughter that lives with me.

BIL & SIL have invited me to their river house on the Columbia to go walleye fish'n with them this coming weekend. Prayers up the weather cooperates.

    1. Rob, Thanks for the well wishes. I'm excited to be on the road to the Columbia river house with a chance to fish, and visit with family.

  2. Seconded. Good fishing and great eating, hopefully! :) That is a great napkin holder. :)
    Our place has never been "neat as a pin". More power to those who can. :)
    We are looking at our first good weekend in almost a month. Headed to the flea market at Lafayette, if the weatherman is right. :)

    God bless!

    1. Celia, It is a hoot, isn't it. Have had a recurring touch of cabin fever here so really looking forward to this trip up the gorge and time with family.

  5. I feel all caught up now. I don't know about you, but we get about a week of sunshine starting today. Of course we got an inch of snow last night to celebrate it.

  8. Love that napkin holder, and the rug, too. That's quite a bargain you got. I need (no, I want) a new reading chair, and I just might make a trip through Goodwill and some of the resale shops myself.

    That's a really pretty now in your photo. I suppose you all are heartily sick of it by now. We're just tired of alternating between fog and rain, and rain and fog. There's a rumor a front's going to finally blow through tomorrow, and we may see some sun. If we don't, I'm going to play like Willy and just camp out for the duration.

    Hope you get some sun for your weekend!

    1. shoreacres, I too am scouting for a reading chair, here's hoping we both find the one that speaks to us...lol
      We've had sun and broken cloud cover the last few days... The forecast is for warmer weather 60* Yay!

  9. I love those kind of rugs. Looks like you got a good one and what a bargain.

    1. Rain, I do too, and the price was right for my budget. I saw it all rolled and taped up, didn't know what size it was or the condition, pulled back one corner and liked the colors and pattern. Lugged that thing to the register and I was out of there.

  10. Someone very clearly loves, and is justly proud of that farm!
