This and That.....It's a Winner.

I love fall with the colors changing and the color temperatures. Over the weekend we had a local Pumpkin Festival at the West Virginia Pumpkin Park in Milton West Virginia. Now while there are lots of activity at this park during the course of a year this is the "superbowl" event for them. It was a good time, and since I went on sunday it was a sunny day. The other 3 days were rainy. Here was the winning entry of the pumpkin growing contest.

It weighed in at 1061 lbs. Now that would make a lot of pies! And they actually auction it off with the money going to help maintain the park and then the pumpkin was donated to the City Mission and volunteers peeled and cooked pumpkin to have for pies at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Yard work has been underway. Trying to get things ready for winter. mowing a weedeating of the normal variety is complete, at least for now. I still have some trimming around the driveway and sidewalks to do.

I have been using some old t-shirts to make yarn with. I am adding this to my stash of yarn and will be sharing with you soon what it is used for. At least my first idea! Winter is the time when we can get to all those projects and I want to have plenty on hand. Yeah right! Like there is a chance I could ever even run low!

I have also been designing some new ornaments for my Etsy shop and those will be rolling out soon. So stay tuned.

  1. That pumpkin is a blessing more ways than one. Sounds like normal fall prep. Golly, I haven't make a new ornament this year. I'll have to get cracking on that.


I try my best to read every comment. And I love hearing from you all.
