Hi sweetpeas,well just visiting y'all some,almost trew with treatments and meds,only 7 more days!
I have had family over helping me clean house and have decided to do a yard sale/folk art sale/pecan sale in my front yard on Nov 30-Dec 1st.We have a big thing here called Christmas on the River AND FROM NOV 25TH -DEC 2ED THERES LOTS OF FOLKS IN TOWN.
Last year was really good,I had lots of sales,all the pecans sold and most of the to visit y'all awhile.

November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.
