Yardwork intrigues Stella

Before the heat did me in today, I took out my battery-operated weed whacker and took it around the yard.

During this time, Stella sat, tied under a tree, and watched me work.

During her next time in her dog fence, Stella had to check out my weed whacking work.

I have to keep an eye on Stella. She loves to dig holes in her yard. It’s another fun activity for her, but not for me.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Volunteers working

Today I joined a group of ladies from the Outagamie County Extension Service.

There were multiple work tables being used. I was at a table recycling calendars. After cutting the calendars apart, we slipped the pictures into sleeves, making flip picture books for special needs people.

The above photo shows our work in progress.

This photo shows where small pictures are clipped. Many will be glued to make homemade greeting cards.

It’s good to get out of the house and work on projects like this.

A little spring cleaning

This spring cleaning job took place in 1990. I wrote about these happenings in my April column that year.

My spring cleaning isn’t so adventurous any longer. I’m lucky if I wash a few windows.

When the weather is warmer, I intend to spend my time outside, enjoying the sunshine.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

With both feet

Here’s a 1990 column about home repairs. This time it was my project and not Bob’s

I remember some of the work done in our house. Mostly I remember being tired after working hard.

My winter project

I started cutting patches last winter. That was enough of a project.

This year I got the urge to put some together. So far I’ve finished a few rag quilt pillows.

Eventually, larger pieces will make a lap rag quilt.

I’m using pieces cut from Bob’s old shirts and jeans, so my work has meaning.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
