Their 13 year old son!!
Sunday was spent in the garden, gathering veggies, picking crabby apples and a little stitching.
Sunday evening I had a tangle with my kitty....the neighbors little ass'ol of a cat jumped onto the screen trying to get to my Chewie. I heard the ruckus and went running to the dinning room where the little ass'ol was hanging from the screen (now shredded) and Chew-Chew was just boxing away at him. So I hollered and touched Chewie who jumped and hissed at me. I knew not to touch her as she was in demon cat mood like I had never seen....sooooo I reached up to close the window between them and she LIT right into me, biting the top of my hand and rabbit punching me but good. I let out a blood curdling scream that brought the hubby running from the garage. I was too scared to look at my hand because it felt like she tore it right open.
Thankfully she didn't.
Our sweet little peanut can hold her own; now we can add guard cat to her resume. :)
After about an hour I got to thinking and googling and decided after reading the cat bite horror stories that we should head on over to the ER to get the antibiotic regimen started; oh bonus I get a Tetanus shot too, sweet! All is well on my
So on Monday with the help of my husband (he chopped the crabby apples) I got to makin' crabapple jelly and spiced crabapple jelly. It poured rain ALL day; it was perfect weather for spending most of the day in the kitchen over four boiling pots. Hahaha.

Looking forward to getting some stitches in tonight...was planning on having block three complete over the long weekend but hit a bit of a snag-gle tooth, haha. Almost done, almost.
I can't wait to get started on block six! I am dropping down under three so I can stitch the ice skaters on the pond. I emailed Marty at Carriage House Samplings last year cuz I could not figure out what that was on the bridge... I will save that for my progress pics when I get to it. Hehehe.
Thank you again for stopping by and leaving a comment or two. I have been enjoying everyone's blogs as well; with all your lovely projects and summer adventures. As this sultry season comes to a close I am anticipating the soothing coolness of Autumn and the sweet smell of the leaves as they collect on the ground. There is something about the sound of the rustling leaves swirling on the ground that brings an inner peace to me. This is my all-time favorite season. Let the cider flow!!
Keep on stitching.
