Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

1,2,3...Christmas Lights on ...

Here the house is all lit up.
Red & white lights all around.
No snow yet but it sure will be pretty when we get it. Supposedly next week...Let it snow!

Annie and Betsy

Here are my girls... Annie & Betsy, Chrismas would not be complete without them sitting patiently waiting to have their pictures taken with "the jolly old man himself...that would be Santa.

They always leave him cookies & milk too.

It looks like Christmas.....but no snow yet!

Purchased a few gift tins at Goodwill yesterday for candy and we worked on more Christmas decorating. The front porch and livingroom are done.
Continued working on the outside lights, they are up and working. I will post a picture later. We put them up Saturday, came home from a local play in the evening to find them off. They had burned & melted a socket outlet. We were lucky the house was still standing. We think there was too much pull on the light circut we had them plugged into. Won't do that again. Replaced light bulbs which could become a full time job, with these old strings of lights, but we wont let it be a problem. After this year the artifical tree and strings of lights will be discarded and new stuff purchased next year. You can only use these things so long, they have been packed away & stored, unpacked too many times.
Clay's brother & his wife came down from Camp Sherman for a visit overnight and we managed to complete the project again and the lights look really good & work fine now.
This morning we drove over to the Running Y Resort and had breakfast with them at Gallaghers Cafe. We toured the Resort and drove around the area before coming home. A nice visit & drive.
I will work on my quilt project this afternoon for a while and wrap a few gifts and make some more carmels... I must hide these better....
