When I Grow Up...

I want to be an old woman. -click to view you tube video.

By the way, Paula won a pair of rug mugs...err, make that mug rugs... but left no way for me to contact her. If you'd like them, please leave a comment and will choose someone by Wednesday, 7:00 a.m. I'll try and mail them Wednesday afternoon barring snow storms preventing me from getting to town.

Re posting - I've decided to try and make a few entries at a time and then have them posted regardless of my weather situation. When we've severe cloud coverage or storms, we don't have internet connections. Fortunately, we have lots of audio books, printed books and there's always the spinning wheel, quilting and weaving looms, knitting needles and sewing machines to keep me busy! In severe weather, chores take up huge amounts of my day; just getting to the barn takes a lot of time as I have to break snow drifts so we can all walk, somewhat, freely. When I return to the house, I spend a while, sometimes a couple of hours, simply recovering. You know what they say: old age ain't for sissies! And my's better than the alternative!

All that to say, if you e-mail me and I don't i-net. Be patient and I'll get to you, sometime or other -smile-.

Merry Christmas and until next time,

Blessings ~ good health ~ good role models ~ women after God's own heart ~ growing old ~


  1. Oh! I would love to be stuck at your place for a while. All the things that keep you busy are things that are of interest to me. I love quilts and wish I was that talented. I have made a baby quilt and a wall hanging by using paper piecing. Thanks for your kind words on my blog.

  2. Your studio is so pretty in the snow! Have a great Christmas!

  3. Be careful out there!!!

    I went out to feed this AM and sank up to my knees.....I "really" love those deer!!


  4. Dearest Sandra,
    May you have a wonderful and very Merry Christmas as we say Happy Birthday Jesus!

    I appreciate your blogging friendship and enjoy reading your post, seeing the pictures and reading your comments.

    Again, I think your header is gorgeous! What a sight to see, so beautiful. I can just imagine the quiet in the air.

    God bless,

  5. I was wondering how you fared with the winter storm this weekend. So glad to hear you are well and have plenty of toys to keep you occupied ;-)

    My brother lives in Canton, NC and they received 13 inces of the white stuff. We barely received a dusting this weekend.

    Merry Christmas!

  6. I never mind being snowed in. But of course we still have heat from the wood stove and light from the oil lamps. But, you so right. It makes chores hard to do in a timely fashion!

    Merry Christmas to you, Dave, and all the critters!

    Love and God Bless, Misha

  7. I enjoy your honest portrayal of your beautiful but hard-working life and at the same time I only hear your appreciation and no complaints.

    Love the winter coat on Thistle Farm.....The grass is always greener...or whiter. Here in Southern Cal it is warm and sunny..... looking forward to the day my Christmas is white in Colorado with my little animals

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

  9. Such a beautiful pic of your studio ...

    May your celebrations be joyous ~
    Merry Christmas ~

  10. Oh, I hope that snow makes it this far north, although they aren't announcing but 3 inches in our neck of the woods tomorrow. And Paula doesn't know what she's missing with those mug rugs...I still am interested!

  11. I LOVE that video! What funrapsio we can have at any age!

  12. The snow is beautiful, but I know what you mean about it taking a lot of 'extra' time to get chores done in it. Plus, when it gets extremely cold I also haul in a LOT of firewood, keep the fire going and then have every intention of quietly spinning or weaving but often end up taking a nap to regain energy to resume the work necessary to keep all the animals warm and watered. I still enjoy winter days though and all that extra work keeps ME warm!


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
