Off to Market

Well girls I've decided to try the tuesday market this week.I use to do it every week but the trip got to long so I haven't been in about two years.It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get there.It's called Roots in Lancaster PA. Lots of interesting things,amish,and beautiful country.I'm looking forward to a little treasure hunting too.Best part is I'll be able to visit with my dear friend Lisa.This market has a fleamarket on the one side of the road about 250 vendors then the other side is buildings with everything from amish baked goods,produce to handmade furniture.Supposed to be a beautiful day.Got my camera packed hopefully I'll remember to take lots of pics.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Yes still here and Gifts from Michelle

 I know long time no post.I've been visiting everyone and commenting some.Hopefully things will slow down.Things have been busy here.Hubby's back went out.He could not even walk for 3 days We are now on day 7 and he is able to move very cautiously..I did nursing for 6 years mostly with Alzheimer/dementia patients and I tell you in the beginning helping him was harder than that.LoL. He already knows that I think that.He is pushy because he wants what he wants and does not like waiting so he tries to do it and it doesn't work.It's been hard because he is a big strong guy who can get it done but now he says he will think about everything.I also realize how much he truely did in a day for me because I have had to do my stuff plus his.I'm exhausted..I've also had a few issues slowing me down here and there.We do not have insurance so tend to put off Dr's visits unless they are absolutely necessary.Well I've been having bouts of sickness for about a year now and just get through it.Well it's came to my attention recently alot of the problems I'm having were dad's complaints before finding the cancer.So I'm going to have to go and have some test done and just make sure everything is Ok..Yikes scares me about the cost.but a little scarier that little voice saying what if in the back of your head..Hubby and I are on the go non stop and we've really had a reality check the last few weeks.....Ok on to better things Michelle and I recently swapped.She will have her goodies in the next few days..Look how nicely everything is wrapped... 
 Wool Runner she hand made.Will be perfect on the childs stepback this fall...
 Wool penny swag.LOVE this.It went directly onto the old blue cupboard...

 Fall Tucks and Wool Ditty..Michelle is becoming addicted to wool..smile...
 She did everything in a Fall theme which is my favorite time of year.Thanks Michelle for everything.She is such a sweet girl and does some really creative things so stop over for a visit.....Now for a quickie contest..I need help finding out the name of this character.He would have been from around the 1940's and I remember he was a newspaper boy..I can't remember his name though.So if you can guess the right name and help me out I'll put your name in for a small prize.I'll do the drawing sometime early next week.
Hope everyone is enjoying summer.We've been very hot and dry in PA but have been blessed with some showers this last week.My grandma and I both planted heirloom tomatoes and had a contest going to see who got the first ripe one.I need to take mine out and show her I won..smile..Mine is huge and perfectly ripe biggest tomato I ever saw.Can't wait to eat it.We've had other tomatoes already but this one is special since it's heirloom.My little garden is doing ok since I've babied it,but we've lost alot out at the farmhouse with no rain.I think the showers are a little late to save the corn,so will buy local.They say it'll be smaller but sweeter..Oh and thanks for all of your sweet emails checking in on me so nice to know you all care..Warm Blessings!~Amy

Happy 4th and Birds

 Wanted to stop in and wish everyone a Happy July 4th.Hope everyone has a wonderful summer day with family and friends!  Been busy here.Wondering why they call it Lazy Summer Days? It's been so Hot here we've been in a heat wave.Hopefully today it will break.Fridays hubby and I have been going on early morning getaways for junking.There are to many dealers in our area and let me say they fight and are rude.I don't like fighting so we decided we would start taking little trips out of our area.Sometimes we find good stuff others we strike out but the rides are nice and not running into the same people is wonderful...
 We need rain the gardens are dry.I am able to water our little kitchen garden at the house but the big garden at grandma's we can't as she has a small well.I got heirloom tomatoes that should be pickable the end of the week.I can't wait for a BLT with a real tomato with flavor.Yummm....We've got new neighbors moving in.Glad it's not the bad ones.The wife seems nice,the husband a little short fused and cocky.They seem like people that had alot of credit and spent alot got in debt and lost their house because they have alot of stuff and the husband said the place is too small and he already had to sell to many of his "toys".I don't think they'll be cook out with the neighbor types but that's ok I won't have to worry about my house.A wave hello is a just fine relationship....Our faithful birds our back with their sweet babies.Hubby says next year he'll build them a new house as theirs is getting a little shabby...
 I can sit out on the back deck and enjoy watching them.They are only about 10 feet from the deck.
 Love hearing them chirping....
 I don't know alot about birds but it seems the mom and dad take care of the chicks together.They are the same ones that have came for 4 years now..

Well girls sorry so long between post lately,summer is my busy time with markets and just life in general.I do stop in and visit you all...Warm Blessings!~Amy
