Bags and Deer...............

 Made to smaller bags today.

 My view out the kitchen window. At first there was a rabbit trying to eat corn out of the wagon too. The deer chased it away.

They were out there for quite awhile. I might as well put the grill away we have barely used it this summer. It just gets in the way of the pictures!!..........JMF

More pictures than words...........

 I went to check the fall calving cows this morning, and was dreading it. They are in a pasture that is kind of rough and I haven't driven out there in a long time. Once I got out there it was great!! Hubby cut part if it for hay but the rest is like other years when we have rain:)
 The cows and calves were happy:)

 Queen of the hill!!
 Water, blue refreshing water for everyone.
 I think I need to wash the window.
 Morning stretches
 Orange tag
 green tag  hey maybe a future 4-H calf!
 Then there are blue, white , red , and yellow tags. some colors designate the year the cow was bought, or the share % or bought as heifers. Just as long as I don't have to keep track.

  The  chickens are working their way farther from the nest all the time. Lucas and I took some corn to them the other day, and I asked him how are we going to get them to come? He said just call out "supper time", and it worked:)

 I still haven't got my new camera. I guess you have to order one they just don't appear just because you want one!!
 All the boys are back home. They are off duty now til the fall cows need them, then more time off til next summer. What a life:)

 Sorry I'm not in Custer State Park... It would be nice tho.
 Just our little herd.

 Lucas said the other day "I wish we had a golden tree" me What?? I guess I didn't know that we have a golden tree behind the house.....
 But we do!
 The last couple of times he's been here we have walk around the house to look at the golden tree. It is way more golden in person, or with a better camera. I better quit complaining what if the pictures aren't any better when I do get one.

 I love a good mum:)

 enjoy the wonderful weather............JMF

Harvest and pillows.

 Harvesting beans these are the neighbors. He hires hubby to combine them. The crop is very good considering the amount of rain we got this summer.

 I made a couple of pillows for a shower present for twins.. A cowboy and a cowgirl!!
 I had so much fun making them. I bought the printing of the words on Etsy. Then I used iron on transfer paper to print them out.
 Dug though my western fabric and away I went!!

 I had an epiphany (not to be confused with the Church of Epiphany in Epiphany SD) I just had to say that:) about putting the bias tape on the outside edge of the pillow. I sewed the pillow wrong sides together, left an opening then sewed the tape around except where the opening was. All you have to do is stuff and sew the tape to close the opening. I love it when a good idea pops into my head. There is room in there for a lot more if they would just get in there!!! The little white circles are yoyos and the brown is fringe I cut off one time when I needed the fringe shorter. I know you must thing I am a hoarder when I can't even throw away an inch and a half of fringe well I'm not:) I threw a bunch away the other day and now I wished I wouldn't have. So does that mean I am a hoarder?????????????
Can't wait to make another set of pillows.....JMF
