BTW......Teddy is dead and it's 91 degrees in fall..I am officially in hell.

Teddy is Dead

No picture today.  I can't handle looking at pictures of her.  She developed bloat yesterday.   I had to wrap her in a blanket to get her into her kennel so we could take her to the emergency vet.  They wanted to open her abdomen to re-position her stomach.  At almost 13 years of age and in declining health, we chose not do.  I've never had to make a harder decision in my life.  I'm taking some time off of here to figure out what I am going to do now. It was an endless joy to have been her mama for all of these years.

It's Fall

 It's Fall....I just wish someone would tell our weather that it is!

I made these bacon, cheddar and chicken rolls for the workers a couple days ago.
 I made my pizza dough but you can easily use store bought for these. Brush the dough with garlic butter and sprinkle on some grated cheddar cheese.

 Add some diced chicken.  You can buy a rotisserie chicken if you don't want to make your own.

 Add some diced, crisp bacon.

 Roll it up and cut it into about 1-1/2 inch slices.

 Place them on a parchment covered cookie sheet and brush with more garlic butter.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake them at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.  You can serve these with marinara sauce or ranch dressing for dipping.

The Big Bad.....

 This is what I brought home from the fair.  The big bad wolf.  Isn't he wonderful? There is always a woman at this fair that does the most wonderful felting.

 I bought this for a future grandchild....fingers crossed and give The Blog Tech some oysters.

 The teeth are incredible.

He even has a skull earring.  I gave this to The Blog Tech already and I know he is thrilled with it himself.  I figure....'if I buy it, they will come".

Another Festival

 The second festival had people dressed in period garb.

 It was held in the woods.

 We went straight to the candy apple table to buy some for my husband. He is a big fan of these apples. They are dipped in caramel, then chocolate and decorated with nuts or sprinkles.  They come in all sorts of flavors.

 A piper.

 A lot of people playing bagpipes.

 A drummer.

 Gypsy dancers.

 There was a small pumpkin maze for children.

 And pony rides too.

 Gourds and pumpkins for sale.

 Buggy rides.


Click for a closer look.  This woman was weaving yarn through this frame she made to make a picture.  More tomorrow!

Festival Part ll

 The first festival we went to always has vintage cars on display.

 I had to take a bunch of pics and post these for Leanne and Brent since he just redid this same truck in New Zealand.

 Look at this grill!

 The bed might be my favorite part.

 What a classic.

The farm that hosts this festival is a horse farm.
 Isn't this the perfect limb to hang a swing from?

 The farmhouse.

 Handmade wooden ornaments.


The chainsaw artist at work.  I'll show the second festival tomorrow.
