Redoing our dining room chairs.  It is my grandparents dining room set.  Cherry wood.  Going to the solid color.  Have a tablecloth in plaid, smaller than the furniture plaid.

Folklore of the persimmon



Over the weekend my husband opened up about 10 persimmons and they all had a spoon in them.

In the one picture we have the spoon raised up alittle.

So they say:

spoon shaped means lots of heavy wet snow forecasted

fork shaped powdery light snow and a mild winter predicted

knife shaped bitter icy cutting winds for next few months will occur

So Southern Illinois should see snow. Last year there was a fork in the seed and we had a super nice winter---but paid for it with the drought and hot summer. I don't mind alittle snow, especially if it comes on a week-end when I am off!

On an evening drive





around a long country block a few things we saw. Probably over 20 deer total. The sunset the Lord provided was beautiful.

My Birthday Gift



Mom made me a bear out of my dads suit. He died in June 2005. I have the collar folded up in the one picture. My sisters also got one on their b'days.
