Shadow Is Getting Spoiled

Shadow has always been a floor sleeper.  The only time he sleeps on the bed is when it gets really cold.  Well, I think that has changesd.  While staying with George and Lisa our boy is now sleeping on the sofa.  Roxie, George & Lisa's dog, has even moved from the sofa to the recliner. See, Shadow is getting spoiled and thank you George and Lisa for taking such good care of him.  Miss you Bud!

Wears Valley Fall Festival

George and Lisa and Tim and I both attend Fall Festivals yesterday but we were at different ones in different states.  While Tim and I were at the Orange Park Fall Festival in Florida George and Lisa went to the Wears Valley Fall Festival in Pigeon Forge, TN.  We had heard about the Wears Valley one when we were at the Newport Fall Fest from one of the vendors.  They had told us it was a big one and it was.  Lisa said cars were lined up for miles to get parked.  It cost $3.00 a piece to get into the festival but Lisa said it was worth it.  This one was the biggest fall festival in the area.  Next year we will have to check it out.  She said it was great and she even managed to pick up a couple of items.

And Shadow Stayed Home!

Tim and I have made it safely to Florida and it was strange not to have Shadow with us.  He loves to travel but we couldn't take him this trip because we will be at Disney World.  Disney World now has four resorts that you can have your pet at and we are actually staying in one but not the area we are staying.  George and Lisa are taking good care of Shadow and as you can tell by his first day he is really missing us...not!  He is staying with Lisa & George and Roxie, Angel & Chance.  Yesterday he went to Travis's house to play in the back yard with Nix, Gaia and Ajax.  There were a lot of happy dogs.  Thanks George and Lisa for taking such good care of Shadow.  Shadow, we miss you buddy!

The Baseball Season Is Over For Me

With the Cubbies losing last night and ending their season the Baseball season is done for me too!  I love my Cubbies and I am a proud Cubs fan. This was their third post season play in a row so they are doing well.  The Dodgers are just an amazing team this year. Their bull pen was amazing and they had the bats.  Good luck to the Dodgers in the World Series but more importantly Thank You to the Chicago Cubs for another successful season.  Go Cubs Go!

Prepping For A Trip

Today I have the challenge of packing for the next 12 weeks.  Tim and I are headed to Disney World for a week long vacation then I will be staying in Florida for a couple more days until I fly to San Diego for three weeks.  I will then be returning to Jacksonville, FL where I will stay through the New Year helping our daughter Jenny with her business for her Christmas rush.  I will gone from the farm for quite awhile but Tim will be returning after Disney but will head to Florida for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Getting ready for three different trips is a chore and today will be devoted to getting all my ducks in a row and getting packed up.  I will miss the mountains but I am looking forward to my travels and spending time with my girls!

Jeep Shopping - Not For Us!

Tim and George spent all day Tuesday out Jeep shopping but not for themselves or Lisa and I.  They were shopping for our son in law, Nate.  His car died and he really wanted a Jeep.  After shopping in the Florida area and finding nothing he reached out to Tim who gladly helped.  Tim and George headed to the Tri-Cities and after looking at a few jeeps they found one that they are hoping is going to end up being as good as they think it is.   Tim and I were heading to Florida on Friday and now we both will be driving!  Nice job Tim and George I know Nate and Jenny are very excited!

It's Jewelry Cards Time Again

With the Holiday season about to begin in a couple of weeks it is time for me to get busy and make Jenny a huge supply of jewelry cards.  We will be heading to Florida this Friday and I want to make sure I have enough supplies for Salted With Jen to last until Thanksgiving.  This is the biggest order I have made and it has taken some time to get it all ready.  I even had to make a run into Morristown to Hobby Lobby because I needed some new tools.  I am in the process of finishing up making over 1000 jewelry cards.  Only 400 left to stamp and I will be done.
