GEE WHIZ..I have tried for the last week to get onto all of my blogs as well as the ning forums for our Small Town Living site with no luck..my computer went on a real wonky fritz. So I am currently on my hubby's laptop writing all of my posts and we will be getting an external harddrive for my computer and transferring all of my photos onto that and then deleting a lot of things off of my computer with the hopes that it will then run a bit better for me. but..ugh..technology can be aggravating at times.
well, we took a trip to Ocala last weekend to put in our bid on a home, but that fell through at the last minute as we did not wish to get drug into a bidding war on the home. So we continue to look for a home. Ours is being listed with a new agent who is very nice and seems to definitely have her act in gear compared to the last agent..this gal is a dynamo and quite helpful with advice, and a "go getter", so we really are hoping that things go quickly once we have the new agent.
Weather here today has started to cool down again after this mornings rain shower.We have had a rather odd bit of Fall weather here..it just can't seem to decide whether or not to remain summertime or to go ahead and embrace the changing season :0)
On another note my husband is hosting a giveaway, all you have to do is visit his shop at www.wilsongraphics.etsy.com and email him and tell him what you think of his work..then leave your address and you will receive a nice vinyl decal from his overstocked items...his email is pauldavidwilson at gmail dot com.
I do hope that you all are having a great weekend. Here's wishing you a Happy Halloween too.

Things around here have been a wee bit busy as of late.
I've been working on cleaning out our garage a bit more. Trying to get more things downsized and cleared out.
And am bartering a few of the items for things that I actually can use/need at a new house. Things like crocheted dishcloths, some heirloom seeds that I don't have in my stash, and some retro looking fabric fat quarters. So it is thinning out things I don't want to move and swapping them for things that take up a lot less space and that I can wind up putting to good use. It is a win-win situation for all involved.Plus bartering is just plain fun.
Then I worked on weeding my potted plants..yep..somehow my potted plants out back wound up with their fair share of weeds in amongst the pots/plants...gee weeds are persistent aren't they? Then I had to move a couple of heavy terra cotta pots in with the grouping..boy a terra cotta pot filled with plants and soil gets heavy quickly. Next time I will make sure I use a dolly to move heavy things like that.
Today I spent all afternoon getting my house whipped back into shape..vacuuming and mopping and boxing up all the barter items to gt them ready to ship out.
Oh, and in case you haven't noticed..I have created a blog for "Small Town Living" check the side bar on the left, and I hope you'll stop by the blog and become a follower.:0)
Fall weather has finally arrived here, and wow! I'm loving it!
So very nice to be able to open the back door and leave it open for the breeze to drift through the house.And to open the windows too. Actually love to see curtains lightly swaying in the breeze.Something so peaceful and homey about it.
Stop by the "Small Town Living" blog and check out the recipe I've posted there this evening for "Crockpot Apple Butter".
I'll be updating "The Victory Gardener" blog too this evening, so be sure and pick up the latest gardening tip over there.
Thanks so very much for stopping by!
I'd love to know that you visited so please feel free to leave me a comment.

I had gotten a little bit bored with the looks of things on my blog here, and decided I'd like to gussy it up a bit, do you like the new look? I do, and I hope that you do too. Sometimes we just need to add a little bit of flair here and there to things huh?

I'm not sure if this little cardinal had mites on his head/beak area or if he is going through a molt, as he kept rubbing his beak against branches and the feathers around his beak area looked a wee scruffy..anyhow..I was delighted to be able to get a few close shots with the camera. Enjoy!
