down on the farm

 While straightening up the grandpies toys on the front porch yesterday morning, I got caught up in the moment and had to play!  just long enough to take a couple pictures and then I put everything away.  but it was fun while it lasted!
last night I crafted for a little bit, but really wasnt feeling so great so I ended up on the couch and probably was asleep by 9:30!  stilll not feeling so great this morning, but I have somethings that I have to do at work today, so I'll be heading out there shortly.  not sure if I'll stay all day or not though.
Found the idea for this little garland on pinterest... soo simple and it really is cute.  This isnt a very good picture.  I'll take a better one when I put it up next weekend.. where ever i end up putting it!  
we're supposed to get some nasty weather with some bitter wind chills dipping to 20 and 30 below zero!!  I know that some of  you are supposed to get windchills as low as 50 below.  thats brutal..  
I hope everyone stays warm and cozy..   Like Kim K.. I'm just praying we dont lose power.  Ive been listening to that wind blow outside this morning and I have to admit it makes me nervous.   not to mention that we did have a little flickr of lights a while ago.   
OK.. time for one last cup of tea, some tylenol and then Ive got to get going.

Looks like it will be a cute heart shape garland! Hope you feel better! Sending good thoughts for staying warm and that your power holds during this horrible cold spell!

Isn't fisher price the best? I think everyone needs to play! Maybe that's why I love my dollhouses so. That valentine garland is adorable. I worked on one yesterday. I should spend my day home with this storm organizing the house, but I think the craft room might be calling.

Take care of yourself. Don't work too long today.

I love your farm scene! My son had that barn, wonder what we did with it? I pinned that same felt valentine garland but haven't made it yet. Yours is adorable!

Blessings

I hope that you get to feeling better today, Viv. We are having highs of -15 degrees today, so everything is closed, even Purdue where my husband works! Take care, Cindy

Happy New Year! I had to smile when I saw your post because I would do the same thing when my girls were little and I would straighten up their toys. Have a wonderful week! Nan

Feel better. Such strange weather. 58 this morning, 12 tonight. This winter just doesn't seem to be going right!

Viv, I saw the post that must have been removed. I hope that your daughter is okay. How scary. Bad enough with the snow but with the cold it is so much worse. Hope all is well now. ((((HUGS)))) and Prayers. I also hope you are feeling better.
