You Know That You're a Country Girl When........................


.......you have to make frequent trips to the hay and feed store for bales of straw.  Yep, that's my life now and I love it!


Yesterday we decided to drive around the area and see what some of the other farms were up to.  Here we're heading into Brite Valley with its amazing oak trees.


As I've told you before, there's something like 5 valleys in the Tehachapi area and each is so different from the others.


You'll find old, old homesteads that have finally given way to the passage of time.


Last time we drove through this area, this old barn was still standing.  Now it's no more.


And after such a nice country drive, I came home and cranked out this pair of socks.  The yarn is Regia and I just love the self patterning colors.

With the heat in full swing again and a chance of monsoons later this afternoon, I'll stay inside and do some more Japanese Knot bags for our Etsy shop.

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.

Tho the colors of these socks are not what I would normally choose, I LOVE the patterning they have! A terrific pair of socks!
