Well Hey Yall! Good to see You again. We’re happy You had a chance to stop in and see Us today. Its always a special treat to have Yall visit with Us. Hope Your work week was productive and Your weekend with Family and Friends restful and relaxing. Here at the Ranch, We have had (and still having here and there) a little bit of Rain. The Pumpkin Patch and the Briar Patch (Blackberries) are just loving it, not to mention the little Ducks at the Duck Pond.
Wanna say a big Hello today to Miss Lilly out in Rural Hall, North Carolina. Miss Lilly sent Us a beautiful old handmade Quilt that needs a little tlc. We were so tickled to get it in the mail and can’t wait to start working on the repairs. I just love patching these old Quilts. It is one of My very favorite things to do. After all, that’s kinda how quilting got started in the first place. One patch at a time. 🙂
I wanna make some new aprons too before the Holiday Season starts and We get swamped crazy busy (like usual). I got an idea for a cute one for Halloween. I am not sure how much material I have tho. I got to check my fabric stash Yall lol 🙂
One thing I am not loving right now is these dad blam Turkey Skeeters!! (Pardon My language). They are driving Me and the Kids nuts! You gotta be real careful going outside. If more than two land on You at once, they could fly off somewhere and tote You with em. I was laying in bed this morning and thinking about it….. if I took the cordless drill…. and attached the metal fly flap to the end of it…. I could go all Rambo on them!!! Wonder how many I could take out before they swarmed Me……
I’ve been thinking about My baking this weekend. I haven’t made a Lemon Meringue Pie in such a long time. It is My absolute favorite pie. I think I am gonna see if I can find Grandmomma’s recipe and get Gracie in the kitchen to help. We always have such a good time. She is such a cool kid and so smart. She has a real knack when it comes to cooking too. I’ll let Yall know how the pie turns out. I know We are gonna make Coca Cola Cake this weekend too and some Yum Yum Cookies.
Ole Jake has been busy this week. He planted some late corn and has done some work on the Duck pond in the Courtyard. He is looking forward to working in the new GreenHouse too. I think I am gonna get Him some fall bulbs to plant for the Ranch House Spring Flower Beds. He really likes Plants and working Outside with the Animals. Such a good Farmer!
I here My coffee pot whispering My name. I think I am gonna make a pot to drink while I do My Kitchen Chores. Yall come back and visit with Us again real soon and tell the Family We said Hey! ~Love from the Ranch~
