Difficult Level One to Ten

This fall I broke down and bought a fake tree. Since we don't have the property on bench anymore. Not sure were a good place to get a tree. A farm raise tree is $25 on up.
But found one at a thrift store for $3.99.

The box says Christmas pine tree. Pine trees have usual longer needles. This one have shorter needles like a fir tree.
Most Christmas farms usual grow FIRS. One year actual use a white pine for a yule tree.

Even put a few of my snow people collection. Most of my snow people comes from thrift stores. Not sure if I'll leave my cards on table or not.

Woke up with about 3 inches on snow. More to come 9 inches the weather people are saying.

This morning Murphy and I did a little snow removing around the place. I can tell you my back was feeling it a little.

Eating consist of.
Breakfast scrambled eggs with meat, peppers, and onions. Also a blueberry muffin.
Lunch Pizza
Dinner some type of burrito. Not sure what season my hubby add it was good. I know it had peppers, onions, tomatoes, and clintro.
A very slim slice of boston cream cake.

We're still burning wood in the stove. It help with our natural gas bill. So Murphy took a piece of tin and haul wood from the shed/barn.
We use to go out cut our own firewood. This year we didn't a few reason why. But the main one is we're out of shape.
Since both us do our daily stretches we're doing much better.
Don't see us cutting more then one cord of fire wood.

Been working on my craft. But just a short while ago I put down my locker hook tool and my size N crochet hook. I can't locate either one.

Been slicing up red fabric for my rag rug I been working on. Came across this fabric now I'm thinking of send it to my daughter in-law who makes PETS BANDANA.
I bought this from my friend Alice for I believe it was under $5.00 a yard. But I think the monopoly design would be excellent choice for scarf. Mostly for our fur friends
It been a while since I got this fabric

Well as for difficult I'll give it a two. If my back didn't start to bother me I would give it 1 and 1/2.
But my back been a lot worst.

Coffee is on


  1. Lucky you to find a decent tree for cheap! It looks pretty darn good and you won't be bringing any woodland critters into the house! Have fun decorating it.
    Wow the snow and more coming, Brr! Snow you can have and I hope we don't, but I have a feeling that this year we will get some too.

  2. The best thing about a fake tree is you can use it year after year until it falls apart. And you only pay the cost once at the beginning.

  3. Our weather is supposed to be hot now. But it was so cold yesterday we had to light our wood fire!
    We will be slowly building our wood pile for winter. Hopefully we will get a summer first

  4. Wow great post love from Poland I would like to follow you your world is interesting for me my all grandparents were Amercan citizens

  5. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  6. Dora, do you have central heating and what is the fuel for the system. Is your stove for anything else but cooking?

  7. While country life is hard especially in winter,it still gives off a feeling of love. Your crafts, the gathering of wood, time together and thoughts of family.

  8. Woah with the snow! I know there are people who love snow but I, for one, am very glad I no longer live in a place where snow is an expected part of the winter landscape!

    There is something about having snow at this time of year which seems right, somehow... as long as it doesn't stay too long! We don't have any; actually we are having a peculiar mild spell, which just means overcast and damp. Monopoly is a fun game... and that is fun fabric! YAM xx

  10. Love the fabric.
