Lookie what I got....'s an awesome pair of socks from Melissa! I now have my very own colorful handmade socks for MY FEET! We both signed up to Kaity's sock swap and she was smart enough to pair up two beginners....cause she probably figured we would take a little more time...and she was right. But it was certainly worth the wait!!! Melissa also sent me some goodies including some Zataran Dirty Rice (she's from Louisianna) that the Sweetie Man will have fun with! So thanks, again Melissa! Great job!

Next...check out these cool books I got through a mailer. It was one of those, try for 30 days and send back at our expense. I don't think I'll send it back cause it has alot of cool Christmas things...ornaments, baskets, stockings, etc... I really like it. The book on the right was a freebie that came with it. If you would like to check it out, go to the Needlecraft Shop and I think you may have to send them an email to request it, as it's fairly new.
Last, but not least, check out the awesome gourds we are growing. We started out with four plants but I accidentally mowed three down...oops! This plant went crazy on us and produced four 10 inch gourds....I'll be crafting on this guys next year, for sure!

Well, that's it for tonight! This is the second time I posted this blog...lost the other one somehow.....I HATE when that happens!!!! So till tomorrow....this is Lucy the Gourd Lady, signing off!

I'll try this again... sheesh.

The gourd is so neat. You mowed three down... That's so funny. lol.
And the socks, those are the coolest socks I have ever seen. You lucky duck.
Let us know how the books are, too. Hopefully they should keep you off the streets and out of trouble.

Those socks are so beautiful! And have a lot of fun with the crochet-books - I'm heavily learning how to crochet these days and mind you, these would come in very handy for me while I'm battling with it ;)

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning, ma'am. What are you doing?" "Reading a book," she replies (thinking, "Isn't that obvious?"). "You're in a restructed fishing area," he informs her.

"I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing; I'm reading." "Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."

"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual harassment," says the woman. "But I haven't touched you," says the game warden. "That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.

"Have a nice day," the game warden says, and he leaves.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

Estou encantada.
Voce me remeteu a um passado muito distante, quando morava na fazenda de meus avós.
Foi uma bela viagem no tempo.
Adoro a natureza.
