Well we have been very lucky this winter here. It has been unseasonably warm and sunny most of the winter. Today it is in the 70's , sunny and windy. We have tornado watches up, and thunderstorms in the background headed our way. It has been beautiful for washing clothes and hanging them out. The door is almost shut on winter here, and I fear what March may bring to us this year. Three years ago next month we moved here , and just before we arrived, a wicked snow and ice storm did . We came into broken trees and a leaking roof and a broken water pipe under our house. I remember an ice storm last winter that pretty much shut down our town for a day or two and bitter cold days last winter , but no such luck this year ....... so far.
I found out at Christmas time that my dear daughter is going to have another little bundle right around my birthday this coming August. I am so excited to be a Grandma ...... again. This will make number 8 for us and I look so forward to another joyful event. Of course with the little one coming comes a flurry of activity knitting and crocheting baby things. We do not know if it is a boy or girl yet, so of course there is the colors of yellow green and peach that are pretty generic , but not as pretty as the favorite color of mine ....... PINK. So I wait , making little generic items until we find out if pink or blue is the right color. Then the real flurry of knitting will begin making sweaters and booties and all the cute little things you can think of for girls if that is what the baby is. Why oh why is it so difficult to find really cite patterns for items for boys and things to make for them. For girls just about anything you can imagine to make there also is a pattern but for boys , how many hats and sweaters can you make ....really? So I wait .........
Well Nascar season is now in full swing and I am a very happy girl. I love Nascar!!! I eat , sleep and breath Nascar, and this is the time of year I live for . We were lucky to get tickets to the Nascar Preview weekend this year and I got to meet lots of the drivers , see the cars and get pictures with my favorites . I truly admire and I root for Carl Edwards and Trevor Bayne. I got to meet them , chat with them and have a picture taken with them this year. They are both the kindest, most polite and very friendly drivers. They really appreciate their fans and they are so willing to take the time to visit with each one. I am looking very forward to supporting both of them this season and I pray they have a safe and very successful season this year.
Well that is about it for now. You all take care and I will be back again soon to let you know if I am knitting pink or blue !!!
Welcome to my little farm in the city.
This is a little blog about my life here on my little farm in the city. I am a wife, a mom, a grandma to 6 beautiful grandchildren. I live in a very small Mayberry like town in South Carolina . We live on the banks of a small river in the woods. I raise chickens and this year I really plan to try my hand at a small garden so that I can use the products for canning this year. It will be a venture since all we have is this lovely red clay that is hard as a brick, but I have high hopes. I am an avid knitter and crocheter and I love to work on new patterns that I find. You will probably find much of my work here as I finish it. Well thanks for stopping bye and please stop in often and stay as long as you like. Trudy
