Meetings and Painting

 I have been spending time painting  and going to meetings for not having a regular employment I sure seem to get to attend more meeting than a person should have to. We had our annual fair board meeting and elected some new people and some old ones stayed on for a few more years.
   The picture below is from an extension board meeting where that honored Ted Everett and Kurt Everett as "Friends of Extension"  for their work with 4H and the livestock auction started back in the 1970's and he is still doing the auction for the 4H kids.  Hubby went to a land  sale tonight that Ted had and the sale brought in some where around 3,000,000.00 just had to show all the zero's   Most farmers and equipment owners  know Ted.  He has a big sale barn out on 39 passed Monrovia In  want a day of entertainment go out to see all that he sells no chickens or peacocks like some  places

 Do you remember my Christmas trees from last year.  Time is flying by real fast,  next week is Thanksgiving and my trees go up and are lite that night.   The trees are in place now I got to get the reindeer out and make sure their lights are in order.  Then I think I would like to get my Christmas  tree up just something on my list.  This I need help with so I will get on someones schedule

Wishing everyone a happy and a safe holiday.  Until we meet again

Never Enough Time

I don't have any pictures from today's painting group but  the Extension Homemakers  painted a gourd this morning they had their Holiday program.  I believe it was enjoyed by all 24 of them.

After we left the Fairgrounds we went to Johnson County or maybe I should say Franklin to the Salvage Sister's Antique store just east of downtown on 44.  We also rent a space in that building and have  had a successful little booth. We wanted to spruce up and added some Christmas to our  booth as there is a Antique show at the Johnson County Fairgrounds as they visit there we get some lookers also.

This weekend has so many crafts fairs going on  there are some here in Martinsville,   There  is a Fiber Show in Bloomington at a church on 3rd Street  Sorry I don't have anymore than that. 

We are also going to have some great weather this weekend so I am planning on mowing my yard and leaves for the last time this year. 

It is close to Thanksgiving and it is time to put up my White Christmas Trees and my 3 reindeer.   I light them on Thanksgiving night.  I need to check the lights and make sure they are working.

Going to be busy for a while  until we meet again take care of yourself.  Stop and smell the roses they are blooming for the last time this year.

Bradford Woods

 Last weekend the 27 of October we did a show in Bradford Woods.  The weather was sunny and cool It  ran from 10 to 6 with 2 hours of trick or treat night. trails were  lite by candles and a lot of fun from all the children who come to visit.  We did a make it take it for the children and we sold out by 4 O'clock  Next year we will have more of the gourds and maybe do something different.  There was a report of 2600 people who come to visit  They didn't expect that many so we were all overwhelmed.  We also had rug hooking demonstrations  they keep a couple of people busy.  All in all IU should be proud of Bradford Woods and all they have to offer.  We will come back next year with another project for the children to work on.

On another subject  I am happy to say harvest of the crops finished yesterday.  Got some wheat in the ground this last week.   Now field work and fertilizing the fields for next year.  The cows are out back on the corn stalks and the pastures are still green enough for the cows to pick at the grass makes you think it is spring not going into winter.  Hope the persimmon is not a prediction of the weather since it is a spoon which is a sign of snow.  Enough for now.   Take care until next time
