I cut the entire 10 yards of green netting I bought, but now have a blister on my thumb from cutting so much netting. I will need to raise my prices next year on handmade items. My supplies have all gone up in price.
My husband was not able to leave work early yesterday, so I have much to do today on my own. It's going to be much nicer out today, so that will help.
I worked a bit more on my Christmas ornaments. I'll take them to the craft show this weekend. I would love to keep one for our tree, but we'll see. I will be sure to post a photo when they are all done.
Bottle Cap Earrings I made.
I'm making more for the craft show, but I still need to balance outside work with inside work. Instructions on the ornaments can be found on my S.C.R.A.P. Blogspot.
I went out to find something dug up the yard looking for grubs I assume. I'm thinking either skunk or raccoon. I guess we don't have to worry about army worms, but the rodents left the grass a total mess. In all the 13 years living here, this is the first time to see this.
I have been putting my homemade comfrey salve on a bruise, and it's been working great! I'm so glad I made it this year. Do you make a comfrey salve?
Today I am joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
I'll link up when she posts. I need to get the outdoor stuff done before I can start playing with handiwork.

Old photo of when we had the last goats (he was a wether). He was always finding a way to jump out of his stall or over the fence.

Recipes to try. The brazil nut one has me intrigued.

Read letters and crochet, call Mom.
On the prayer list . . .Mom. Her memory is getting worse. She also canceled her meals on wheels and now relies on friends and family. Winter is coming and I think she'll need to get those meals delivered again. I get snowed in, and most everyone works.
