You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry...

Alert readers may remember that I boasted about large garish State Fair prizes being banned from our house. So can you imagine how freaked I was to open the back of MY car and find this?

He had spent the day after the Fair in my husband's manager's office chair. Then it will take up most of the bedroom of grandson Avery. Oh well, anything for the grandkids!

We spent most of the weekend working in the yard, since the party Saturday will be outdoors. We haven't mowed yet, but the flowerbeds are weeded, limbs trimmed, pig-cooker in place. It was really pretty in yesterday's late afternoon sun.

This bush has changed color nicely in time for the party. I call it "Burning Bush." It is a Euonymus shrub that has nearly exceeded its space limitations in my "butterfly garden" out front.

Off to the Fair to pick up my quilt and see if any of the gorgeous potted plants are still available. They sell much of the garden display flowers and shrubs on the day the fair closes.

Be very careful when you say "oink" at a pig-picking!

YUM! We roasted a whole pig once. It was the best eating.

You must make a pig quilt in honor of the departed...smile...
