My kiln is not feeling well. It will most likely take two weeks. These guys are ready to be fired. Maybe it is a good thing. I can just focus on throwing, and making them for now. Then I will have loads of pots!..
The dogs really giving the cats a hard time.
Repairs..the handles broke while drying overnight. This happens way too much!
My pumpkins are really going nuts. It is like they know that the weather is getting cold, and want to produce..
As soon as i open up the door the horses whinnies for me to feed them..
Up close. this is Rainy. She is so sweet. These guys are like big dogs.
Come on and feed me and stop fooling around and taking my picture!
Flowers are still going strong.
More little pumpkins growing.

I woke up with a headache. I took two aspirin and a allergy tablet and it went away. Then I had an overwhelming happiness feeling come over me ..I have been overwhelmed by the kids disease since they were diagnosed. I have not really felt all that well, and my moods or depression has gotten the best of me. But today, I felt lifted and I can say I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope it lasts. Because it feels really good. I have beauty all around me. I am lucky that I have horses and flowers, and pots and happy kids.Well most of the time they are happy.. I don't know, I just wanted to tell you all that today is a good day, and I feel good.
I love my camera by the way. I love looking at your blogs and Flickr and getting inspired by my friends. Much better than looking through a magazine with all those adds. I love how my friends share a part of their lives with me..And what they are up to and their collections, and what they are making or cooking. I just want to say that I appreciate everyone of you who comes by here. I do not always leave comments or respond, but I do really appreciate everyone of you..So thank you! Also, if you have never left a comment, please do. I would love to hear from you and meet you..

I love that you took us along with you on your Sunday. I can't believe how well your garden is doing. Idaho must be warmer than WA because we've already had a frost!
Love the new pots. I've put in my "wish list" to the hubs. :)
Hugs,

Enjoyed your posts and your beautiful farm!

Ahhhh sweetheart, life is not always easy peasy lemon squeezy - but I am so happy you are happy! You are a true inspiration and I know you are going through some tough moments with all you have to handle with your children and the farm. Julie, even though we have bad days, we just have to be thankful for all of the good things we do have. Just hold your chin high and yell to the Heavens that YOU are such a great person! God has blessed you so richly! When you are having a difficult moment, just sit there and give it to God. He will take it with open arms.

love to you,
Becky

I LOVE having met you!
I think all of your pictures, projects and art work paint a portrait of a much happier person than you think.
we all get down in the dumps, feeling depressed, tired, etc.
I'm glad you share BOTH your ups and Downs, it's so nice to know that most of us experience the same things. a nice sort of kindred friendship!
I truly am happy I met you, makes me feel like I'm not alone when I'm feeling blue, or tired!
xoxo
