    Oh you are so lucky I am jealous, that's wonderful that your DH is so helpful to you and that you're so thoughtful of him that's what it takes for a wonderful relationship. I know where that Lake is I always use to go past it and I had a friend that use to live in SC.

    I love to bird watch, so I would be hanging a bunch of bird feeders in those trees to attract them. What an awesome view!!

    I hope your dr. appt goes well on Monday. I will be sending you a PM to see what he said. Cannot wait to see you at the expo!
    Save the feeling sorry for me for when I have to leave this place. I am already not wanting to leave and I just got here. :) :) I love to watch the birds as well. I have seen a few bird feeders but I need to put some more out there. Can't wait to get really settled in good. Now if I can only get my wrist healed so I CAN sew. AAhhhhhgggg. Such a pain.

    I am getting excited about the expo, not too much longer. :lol: :lol:

    Looks like you have a great place. I wouldn't get much sewing done, I'd be looking out the windows.

    I would never get any work done, lol. I would be too distracted by the scenery.

    I only lived in SC for a year, but if I remember right, it does not snow there. You lucky thing, a beautiful room, a beautiful view and beautiful weather. What more could a girl ask for? I'd be inviting some quilting friends over to help set up and have a fun sunny sewing day!

    Well, there you are!! You're far away from Cajun land. What a view! I would never want to leave that room. That view could inspire a landscape quilt.

    That is a wonderful room! Hope you have many hours of sewing as soon as your wrist feels better.

    You are welcome. This coyote thing is becoming a problem as they are becoming "urbanized" and even are in herds in major cities, Chicago and NYC. I read they are interbreeding with woves too.

    Yes it would be an awesome landscape quilt only I am no where near good enough for that and would not even know how to go about starting one ie: picking out fabric, pp(probably would need that).

    She is right about the coyotes. Luckily we don't have as much problem with them as we do feral hogs. Right in town. You can get a bat with a strap on it that is sold for getting out of a building to knock out the windows in case of fire. It is not real heavy & made by Master Guard. Called a fire bat. 30 ins long. This would be easy for you to carry. Just in case you needed protection if would give you a fighting chance. It's hard to get animals apart when they are fighting & then they may come after you. So be careful & watch your surroundings.

    Thank you Debra Mc. I try not to walk at dusk as it was just before this that i met up with them. I wondered why someone was letting their dogs run loose and thought it strange they were identical and slaavating as they follwed me. God was sure walking with me that day! (2 gray ones with gray eyes. Identical) Thinking of some kind of walking stick too. I will shop around and look for that stick your talking about. Someone told me to call the police. I called animal control but it was after I got home and did research on the net. They said the police would come right out and shoot them.

    I'm not sure but bet that pepper spray would send them packing. That stuff is pretty potent. Also protect you from anybody else. I'm sorry, I have lived with law enforcement for almost 35 years & you learn to always be on guard of your surroundings & people.

    I haven't tried it but saw an email recommending wasp spray because it sprays a greater distance than pepper spray.

    Why yes, that is drool coming out of my mouth.. thank you for asking!

    I don't think I would want to leave that room! My craft room is small and cramped and bursting at the seams.
    I think it would be very hard for me to leave that house at the end of the year!!
