October Skies

I have this sky thing going on.  I have taken HUNDREDS of photos of the sky in the last year.  I am just smitten by our skies.  The clouds, no clouds, jet trails, sunsets.  Not too many sunrises, I don’t get up early enough!

I thought I would share some from this month.  Sept and Oct usually have the greatest skies in western Pennsylvania!

This is from a week or so ago, looking north.


Earlier today, notice the clouds.  And the trees are for Judy!


And these last two are late this afternoon.  Steve came in and said “Sky Alert!”  …… that means I grab my camera, slide into my Crocs and run out the back door!




ELIZABETH…. thank you for naming our calf.  She really needed a name before she got stuck with “hey little girl” for the rest of her life.  For the rest of you, Elizabeth (my 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter) named our 3 week old calf Harriet.  Deeves (Steve) thinks that is a great name.  It is different!  Best of all, if he made a mistake figuring out if it is male or female (he hasnt gotten closer to her than about 6 feet because she is a so fast!) then it could be Harry.  Steve says he watched her pee though, so he’s sure it is a girl.  Aren’t we high tech?


I have my newest quilt project all cut out and started, ready to work on during my retreat.  Then I realized that the directions did not include the yardage needed for the last outer border.  That really pisses me off when book and pattern authors do that.  I bought all the fabric at Judy’s Sewing Center in Elderton, PA, which is 2 hours from my house.  I mailed them swatches of the fabric that I need more of and luckily they had it.  It will be mailed to me tomorrow.  I love their service.  And I love their fabrics too.  I have bought so much fabric there that they sent me an embroidered bag and told me I am in their “bag lady” club.  I am a little afraid to ask exactly what that means….. but I am sure it is good!
