Happy Autumn Equinox and WIP Day to all!

Well today is a double post since I have 2 things to chat about!

~Autumn Equinox~
Today we went to Reed Bingham State Park to be closer to nature. While we was there we made an Altar to the God's and Goddesses'. It was nothing fancy but we built it with items from nature and didn't damage anything in the process!
It was made of rocks from the lake edge,pine cones from the tree it was built at and some small clam shells that I found close to the water edge. It was made to point N,S,E & W. After building it we stood around it and held hands while saying a silent chat. It felt nice to get back in the swing of things!
I would like to add that Wed is free day at the park and that we left all things as seen in the picture! I didn't take anything.

I have some other pictures from the park but will leave them to my Flicker account. There was turtles,alligator's, lake,clouds,signs and well one sign you HAVE to see! It is funny! Its a handmade sign about trashing the roads. You will LOL. Trust me on this.
Why don't I post it here? Well you only have so much space here for free each month. I don't want to use it all up in a few entry's. That's why I made the flicker account.

As for WIP day...I really don't have anything. Well I'm making teeth and need to work on my sock.But other than that I haven't touched anything since the Crocheted things from the other day. I tell her living in the country has its draw backs. Like feeling to laid back to do anything other than watch the cows,Green Peppers and peanuts grow in the fields around me. (there's 3 different fields! don't worry!)

Sorry this is a simple post but I am going to cook a pizza real fast. I'm starving!
Have a good one!

Hi all! I am back. I kept meaning to post but would fall asleep early or get caught up in something else. *sigh* But here I am at last.

I made a account on Flicker for my pictures.This way I can share all my pictures without cluttering my blog. Oh I will still post a few pictures but not all of them. ^.^

In crafting news...I finished something!

I crocheted these based on a pattern. They came out wonderful! I plan on making many more of these. I have an idea for another one. (not in any pattern)

I have also made a mini stocking..but I don't care for it. *sigh*

(will post a picture on my Flicker account soon)

I am VERY close to being done with my Citron shawl. I would be done by now but every time I knit on it I almost fall asleep.

I did finish reading a book tho. "Needles and Pearls" It was a good read. Only I had a hard time with the British terms. LOL Now I am listening to "One for the Money". I like listening to books. It means I have my hands free to do other things.

Well that's all for right now. I will make sure to post again soon. Take care!

The entry with pictures!

This entry is for my friend April who insisted I show her some pictures from my new place. ;) I hope you all enjoy.

This is Janie! My dog.
(Yes she has her tongue out..I had a treat in my hand.)

I am surrounded by fields.This is the most common type.
(That's cotton bundled up if you didn't know.) *wink*

This is a pond on some back road. It is FULL of turtles!
(The turtle is in the middle of the picture just before
the green on the water starts.He/shes on a stump.)
I made Tim turn around and park on the side of the road
just so I could take pictures! LOL

Edward does NOT live in Forks....He lives in Valdosta!
Here's proof!

(Please Don't Litter Make Valdosta GLITTER)

These signs are posted all over the place!!

Look at this wonderful tree with moss all in it!
(That's a Fire Dept.)

Welcome to Hahira!! This town's name makes me Giggle.

You have to take back roads to go through it and if you blink you will miss it!

In other news...I have been crafting up a storm.

I am not done with any 1 thing yet but here
is a sneak peek of some crafting that I am up to!

I have other pictures...but posting pictures here is kind of a pain. I think I will start me a free picture hosting site somewhere.If I do I will be sure and post it here for you all to see.

Well I am going to read then head to bed. Good night all. Please leave me a comment if you read this. ;)

Hi all! I have made this blog so my family and friends (April,Nick,Jon,Hunter & Phillip) back home can see what I am up to! (waves)

My name is Nicole.I am a wife,a granddaughter,daughter in law,niece,friend and cousin to many! I craft at home and sale my goods online. I love to knit and swim. If I could do the 2 at the same time life would be perfect!!

Till now I have lived my whole life,30 years,in Dalton,Ga. But September 30th I moved to my husbands hometown. Sparks,Ga. It is 300+ miles south of my hometown.
My grandparents & cousin Katie was not happy with this at all. (I love you Nana,Papa & Katie!) But they each know this is for the best! I need to start my own life! The life I had before was not mine.

In my old town it was Mountains all the time. Here it is farms and livestock!! I love it. The view is ever changing and I am learning what the different crops are.I am even finding my way around! I can go to Walmart,Hobby Lobby,Dollar Stores and many other places on my own. YAY

Right now we live with hubby's parents. There house is 130+ years old.It's got 3 bedroom and only 1 bathroom. They have a pool also. I am not sure if I ever want to move out! I love old houses and if I was a super hero my weakness would be pools! I am such a fish! I am lucky that here they keep the pool open longer. So I still have a little while to swim.

I only have 1 problem with living down here.....things are so laid back that I don't even want to craft! I just want to sit on the porch and watch the peanut field next door grow. *breath in & exhale*

But I know I have to do SOME crafting to bring some money in! lol So I have to force myself to slave over the needles. (LOL If you know me you know I don't do ANYTHING that I don't want to do.) So here not only will you hear whats going on with my will also see what crafting I am up to! I am sure you don't mind. ;)

So Sit back and join me here a few times a week and let me tell you what its like living here in Sparks...the town that breaths in and out!


side note to April...I took pics with my phone but I have no cord to get them onto my computer.So you will have to wait for me to go back out and take my cam. Sorry *hugs*
