Goodies and Tractor Learin'

I am a winner! Look what came in the mail yesterday from October Farm !

 



These lovely glass dishes and great doilies! I am a doily addict! I absolutely can't have enough of them.She threw in a box of candy too..but...well,I am afraid it has be properly ..disposed of! HaHa ,that sounds way better than scarfed down! Not the candy that is in the bowl now,that is my today's disposal project! So here is a big THANK YOU to my friend at October Farm and if you haven't visited her blog she is always having give aways  and lots of yummy recipes.Plus she is the Thrifting Queen!

I thought I would show you some pictures of Hubby teaching The Boy to drive Ole Betsy! It is a good and useful thing to know how to drive a tractor especially on a farm!

 






Is this a look of fear? No,he is just being his usual goofy self!

  


 All right Boy,keep it on the farm! No driving Ole Betsy to town!
  


This is the hay spear Hubby built for the back.It has been tested and works great! My back is letting out a sight of relief!
  

Hubby is on his way back to China this morning..no matter how long we have been doing this..I still miss him!

I'm curious what your hubby does in China. My son went to school there for awhile....now that was an experience.
Betsy looks even better now that she is on your farm. I would love to have one just like her.
