Wow Us Wednesday Link Party

* UPDATE  I'm sorry for the mix up! I am working from an older laptop with a mind of it's own so I have no idea what happened. The party is on a template so should have posted correctly. On with the party!

Howdy from warm AZ! It's kinda hard to get into the season when it's in the 90's! I am trying to get ready for our Family Harvest Day happening this Saturday and I am having a time getting into the spirit of it all. This last weekend I took Kids Club kids on a field trip to Pioneer Village for the Harvest celebrations there. It was too warm for me but we all still had a good time.

Wow Us Wednesday Link Party

It's Wow Us Wednesday link party time! I'm glad you are here! The week flew by for me as I have been a little extra busy; 'little extra' as in new grand baby busy. Of course his being here does not require anything of me but I simply can't stay away from him. I am spending any extra time at his house holding him and playing with his big sister. He will come here when he's 3 months old and mom goes back to work. Won't I have fun then? A 3 month old, a one year old, 2 three year olds, and a 4 year old. I think I'm tired already! But it will be fun time.

How to Bend & Shape PVC Pipe

The man of the house has been wanting to expand his work shop area for some time. I am happy to have him do it because the small enclosure he uses as a shop really is too small to hold all his tools. When ever he has a project he needs to pull everything out onto the patio to make room for working. Since he only has scraps of time, his "stuff" lives on the patio indefinitely till he finishes his project and DRIVES ME CRAZY!  annoys me. 

But there has been something preventing him from expanding the shop; me.....uh I mean a water faucet; the only one available to the back yard. It was all the way in the far back corner and required me to pick my way over and through his stuff, squeeze by some over grown oleanders to get to it all the while looking out for scorpions and black widows with each step back there!  The faucet first, then the shop I insisted.

Hey everyone! Here he is, number 10! Arrived this afternoon healthy and happy. Mom is doing great too. I held him ever second I could but had to share him now and then. That's his big sister checking him out there. So sweet and such a blessing! And Grandma is tired! Long day ;)  Welcome to the party!

Twinning: Weaving a Rag Rug

Debra over at Frugal Little Bungalow has been responsible for me getting interested in a couple of things; quilting along with the Benjamin Biggs Quilt, and Twinning a rag rug. Thanks Debra! I have found that I love Twinning much more than crocheting for rag rugs. Very satisfying and addicting for me. My loom measures 26" x 38", it has nails across the top spaced at 1/2 inch intervals. It also has a metal rod down the side to keep the sides straight and not have them pull in. I can't imagine how hard it would be to have straight sides without that rod! I had a bit of a wobble even with it there.

Another week gone and another link party! We are on baby watch around here, yes another grand baby due any day! Pretty exciting stuff let me tell you, and grandma here is getting anxious to meet the newest member of the gang. I've got my silly, high pitched just for babies voice all practiced up and I can't hardly wait to kiss that sweet little face and smell the top of his head. Oh it will be so grand! Who will he look like I wonder; you know only one of my grand kids only slightly look like me. Why is that? Maybe this one will just a little ;)

Baked Fall Goodness; 9 Recipes

Summers here are brutal and I would only turn on an oven if I had to for some reason! I hope to have a solar oven before next summer so baking doesn't stop. Anyway the kids are tired of store bought after schools treats and I am anxious to start making them again. Here are some Fall baked goodies I found from WUW link party that caught my eye. Each looks as delicious as the next! Yum!  I think I will start working my way through this list starting next week. Yes it is officially Fall but the temps here are still 100-105! Next week temps are suppose to be lower.

It's Wednesday again, or Tuesday night ;), and it's link party time. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I am starting to see some Fall projects linked up here at WUW. I'm not ready to decorate for Fall yet but I am doing some Fall gardening. Fall is a great time to garden here and often is better than spring. I started seeds indoors and I have been watching outside temps for the right planting time. This weekend may be the right time. I hope so! Have you done anything special this season? Gardening? Decorating?

Hello all! Did you hear about all the rain we had here in Phoenix a couple days ago? We thought we would all get washed away! It was a record breaking rain as more rain fell in a shorter amount of time than has ever been recorded before. Some areas got over 5 inches in a few hours; we are not equipped to handle all that water at once and pretty much the whole valley has damage of some sort. 

The Governor declared a state of emergency and a lot of schools closed that day  from flooding and because getting around town was very difficult or impossible. It was something else for sure. My house is fine and I did not have any flooding or damage thanks to the patio drains no longer contain crayons!
