Oh YES...Size Does Matter.....
when it comes to filling a three and a half foot dough trencher full of gourds that is. I guess you thought I was gonna be dirty...after the nuts I do not blame you. This big ole boy is one of many dough trenchers that I have managed to collect. I just love them. The bigger the better, and actually this is one of my smaller ones. I have about 4 that are bigger than this one and 'prolly about 6 that are a little smaller. I used to have "stack" dough trenchers but they got way to heavy to move, so now I just have them scattered everywhere. Believe it or not I have never paid more than $75.00 for one of these, and after looking at some in some antique stores I feel pretty lucky. Even in the consignment shop I was in they wanted $200.00 for one.
So... my back feels better, still a little sore though. I think I may have over done it a bit today...but you can FINALLY see the sewing table and my counter top in the home shop. WOOHOO!!!! I have started sewing for Christmas and I am having a blast sewing something besides a pumpkin or crow, yeah I know in a few weeks I will be sick and tired of santas and such, but for now I am lovin' it.
Lee started on by building today. I really need another storage shed and he has been so kind to build it for me. Nuttin' big or fancy just a shed with a slope roof, front porch and french doors...lol . OVER KILL!!! He wanted it to match the rest of the home place....men! But since I do not have to pay for labor I guess all I can say is "build on honey". Really though all I asked for was a small storage shed for furniture and out of season items. The dogs are helping him, I looked down once today to see how he was coming along and Sassy actually had the hammer in her mouth taking it to him...I guess Tinsley was the foreman 'cause he was just laying there. And inside...Eli was helping me play hide and seek. You see I have a trencher full of tootsie rolls and he thinks it's fun to get them out and bat them around on the floor...when he can't find it or it gets lost he goes and gets another and another. Sooo, today it was my turn to find all the tootsie rolls, and believe me they were everywhere. The last one I found was behind the toilet. I have not moved the stove yet...wonder what I will find? Little Kitty loved milk tops, Champ like bread ties and Eli and his tootsie rolls. I am almost afraid to clean it out. I personally think it's a job for a man...Oh sweetie pie!!!
Well my friends, I think I am headed back to the home shop, it's nice now that I can see my way around.
Have a great evening.
Blessings to you and yours
