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..
Last night several of the farm girls from the Klamath Falls Charming Chicks got together for an evening of relaxation. We gathered at Gail's house and we sat outside under her new gazebo enjoyed a great pumpkin soup, stuffed pumpkin and bread with a cheese cake dessert prepared by Gail and Faith. The fire was so nice to warm our spirits and friendship. Visit my sidebar Mary Janes Farm or the Klamath Falls Charming Chicks to learn more about us. We do have fun and learn new crafts,and support our community. All in the Spirit of the Mary Janes Farm girls organization. Gail made this hanging light fixture following instructions from the Mary Jane Ideas book called the Outpost Chandelier. Isn't it pretty? The soup and stuffed pumpkin recipes are in her magazines. They were delicious!
We camped along the McCloud River arm of Shasta Lake this past week. It was so quiet and pretty. This campground named Mcloud Bridge was small only 14 sites. It was an old homestead before the forestry service took it over. We were surrounded by huge old oak trees, apple and pear trees and figs and walnuts too. Many old blackberry bushes . ( there were people catching fish right below our campsite, however we did not fish)
The campsites were beautiful. well maintained and because the lake was so low beach access was great too. More pictures of our campsite.
It will be my sisters birthday soon and I will be sending her a surprise! Today I designed a label for our farm fresh eggs. I often give away these to family and friends . I think the label says it all..( you can click on the picture to make it easier to read) It is fun to make gifts and I know she will appreciate these. She lives in Arizona and another sister is headed that way to visit her so I will tuck this into her basket of fresh veggies from our garden I am also sending. This is a real Farm girl gift!
Today is the kind of day when you wan to curl up in a cozy chair with a cuppa hot tea and read a good book. A do nothing kind of day...Put a pot of soup on for an early dinner and watch a movie later....
I think our summer is really gone and Autumn has crept in to replace the warm days. I love to wear my pajamas and sit and watch whats going on outside my window.. birds darting under the eves to keep from getting wet, the leaves on the trees fluttering in the slight wind that is blowing and dripping with a bit of rain. refill my cup with Earl Grey.. Its my favorite and come sit with me and chat...or should I go take a nap...
