I figured it was high time I got back in here and posted since it has been quite some time.  You know, sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging. That's whats happened, lately. The colder temps are coming in much faster than I would like.  I love Fall but sometimes, here in Oklahoma, it seems we skip right over it and barrel right on into winter. It hasn't been that cold yet but this coming weekend is suppose to bring a Blue Norther.  There is so much to do to get ready for it. With the exception of the animal shelter, we are prepared.  I will get to the animals this evening, and tomorrow, but for now the little things are done. 

All the oil lamp chimneys have been washed...
 

The wicks are trimmed.

 The plants have been brought in...

Even the hardy ones.


My handiwork basket is filled with one project or another.

Quilts and shawls are clean and ready, should we decide to sit on the porch, as we do some nights...

And an extra quilt lays on the foot of the bed, ready to be pulled up to our chins, should we need it.

Candles are stocked and ready...

To be burned on the window sills, to greet all who pass by.
