This is the week that was!

WOW! doesn't even begin to cover it. This has been the most jam packed week in a long time. Multiple trips into Redding and that is not my favorite thing to do.  It has not as much to do with Redding proper and the folks residing there but more to I hate doing errands as adventures are much preferred and when I take time to leave the farm well I simply loose time. Because what gets left undone is still waiting for me when I get back.

I have to admit it wasn't all hurry up , catch up and work. Had a quilt shop day with a friend and then lunch at a great restaurant. I don't eat out often unless I am visiting family in Fresno or on a trip with the grand girls. So it was a real treat. I had a Fire Bowl with chicken Teriyaki , brown rice and Asian slaw. Great fire sauce and another sauce milder and sweet. Toss in a nice Pumpkin Ale and life was pretty good.

I am currently in up to the eye balls on getting the quilt top put together as Judy reminded me while cutting my fabric selections that the first Saturday of each month is bring in your finished quilt top and get 20% off your backing fabric. This is an easy pattern and I will have it done by late morning tomorrow and off I will go back to to pick up my backing. Then the top will go down to Madera,_California where my good friend Pam lives on the Quilt Farm. Pam and her family began their dance with dairy goats by purchasing  animals from my herd that was  back in 1997. We have been good friends since and I have watched her three girls grow up from 2,4 and 6 years to the present. Pam is in addition to being a goatherd and a flock of lovely laying hens is a long arm quilter. She will work her magic on yet another top for me. I will be sure to snap some photos before I send it down to her and after it is all quilted and I get the binding on before it gets shipped off to the recipient.

So there is my excuse   reason for the disappearing act of late. Don't forget that tomorrow the winner for Leigh Tate's e-book Honey Bee Tales and Postscript will be drawn tomorrow also. Please check out Leigh's blog always very informative and you can  see all her e-books also.

Leaving you with a photo taken on Wednesday of three mama cows with their calves. Calving season has begun at my neighbor and friend's on the ranch that they work . From now you will see updates on the going's on including photos to come of Janet's milk cow Pumpkin with her new bull calf. Stay tuned !
