New Leather Smells Great!

We are still getting settled back into our house. Our furniture came last week and we LOVE it!! I still have end tables that are coming. We went with leather this time..we haven't had leather furniture before and we are really liking it. This is the mission style recliner that Mike is claiming, and a sectional. The leather smells sooo good!

The chickens have a home again! Mike made them a deluxe house this time, it is twice the size of their old house which stayed with the house we sold. It still needs to be painted, but the hens are very happy!

On Monday Dad and I took Mom to see a neurologist, he wanted us to come back the next day to do a procedure on her, a spinal tap. We came back and she had it done and it seemed to be successful, so the next step will to see a neurosurgeon..hopefully before to long. The Dr. believes she has excess fluid causing pressure on her brain that is causing some of her problems with mobility, cognitive skills and other symptoms shes been having. ... A bit of hope.

Barter Faire!!

We took some time off from moving and cleaning the garage out yesterday afternoon to go the Barter Faire. It had been a couple of years since we had gone, so we wanted to check it out. Jimmy came with us. There are upwards of 10,000 people that very interesting in our little neck of the woods. When we started up the hill to the faire we noticed LOTS of cars parked along the highway and at the bottom of the hill and people walking up. It is quite a walk uphill, about 3+ miles. About halfway up the hill we discovered why, the road was bumper to bumper. Up the hill ....

And down.

We finally made it in though..and we found our favorite spot to eat! Mike had a chicken broccoli crepe and I had an apple cinnamon. Yummy!

Mike and Jimmy trying to stay warm. It was clear and cold.
I thought they were going to buy a hula hoop....
This girl was quite tricky with hers.
We walked up and down the rows of
Up on the hill there are tents set up all over and people sitting in small didn't show up in my picture much though.
The shadows were getting long, we had made our way Thu the fair and it was starting to get colder, so we started our walk back to the pickup to go home.
We were parked in the very last row of cars....way back in the right hand corner of the picture. We got a good walk in.
This was my lone purchase at the faire, a batter is a match to the bowl I picked up at the faire a few years back. I was so happy to find is soo cute!

Happy Fall !!

Isn't this just so sweet!! Kelly sent us this "Happy Fall" surprise. She knew I was looking for a tart warmer while we were out on our visit...but I couldn't find just the right one. But leave it to Kelly she found one for me that is absolutely perfect!! It is folksy, country and rustic all in one and I love birds! It also has cute little star cut outs that glow when the tea light is lit. Included in her package were 3 wax tarts in wonderful autumn scents, and a cute wooden heart w/wire hanger. Thanks Kelly, I will think of you whenever I light my tart warmer!!

I found this little guy in Wenatchee yesterday at Lowe's, I thought he needed a home with me too. I have just the perfect spot for him in my Kitchen.

It has been a windy day today. I cut down my cornstalks in the garden, picked up my pumpkins, and pulled out the vines. I bought a bag of about 90 tulip bulbs at Costco yesterday and now I need to get them planted, probably not today though.

Our renters are moving out of the house today so it won't be much longer until we move back in, probably sometime this week. They were nice renters and we will miss their 3 little boys.
