Good morning, September seems to be moving along too fast for me and it's just mid month. We got much needed rain last night, but it did mess up a project we are working on. Living on a hill has it's challenges for the flow of water to not end up in the basement. The people before us knew nothing about that so we are trying to fix some things.
We have been digging a trench on the top of the stairs near the little road Larry uses to get down to the lake. Quite the job as there are lots of large rocks to separate out of the sand and soil we found in there along with gravel, plastic all sorts of stuff. Larry will install drainage pipe to direct the flow of the rain water.
Some how last week, I pulled a muscle on my left side around my waist down to my hip area, or something got out of whack-no I won't be seeing a chiropractor the ones down here scare me as they are too rough. Instead I have been doing some exercises, laying on the floor etc. a bit better this morning but not by much-so trying to be careful. Larry needs to be careful too as he is in worse physical shape than I am. Before this happened, I have been sorting out large rocks from the soil, so when we put the ditch back together Larry will layer it as it should be, this morning solid mud-so not happening on my part. Larry is doing some hand digging though this morning.
Some of you may remember when a few years after my Mom had passed that I went on a Yellowstone Park trip with my friend in 2017, I had been reading Peggy Henderson's time travel series books about Yellowstone, so I think to help with the healing from my Mom-I searched online for weeks for vintage sterling charms to represent Peggy's first book Heart Song. I had brought that bracelet along on my trip to show Peggy-she was amazed how many charms I had found. I also made a vintage charm bracelet with wolves-I love wolves- and a start of a second Yellowstone charm bracelet-for the extra charms.
A month or so ago I picked up a very cheap charm of a spinning wheel and put it on a necklace chain along with a cheapy wolf charm. This weekend-I decided to look for vintage sterling charms of a sheep and a spinning wheel as an upgrade. Etsy was having a sale for 5 dollars off almost anything on their site. Well the charms I found that I loved were out of my price range or too large. so I hunted for a few days instead on Ebay.
Ebay is a good site for sterling vintage charms. I found the sweetest sheep-lamb that had me smiling after hours on the search. I found a spinning wheel charm I really liked and contacted the seller to ask some questions Turns out the seller just turned 70 years old and she found this charm in her late Mom's items that she remembered her wearing 50 years ago. I loved the story and she marked it down for me.
Most of the sheep charms were very bulky and did not look like sheep to me, this one stole my heart and to me looks like a lamb. This has me inspired to get out my charm bracelets, and I think I have a couple more charms to put on those.
A busy week ahead for us: a couple of dr's appts-check ups, get this ditch completed, go to the woods house, food shopping-we will see how all this goes or not 😀
I am a football fan-always have been-so will be recording the KC Chiefs game so I can later buzz out all the commercials and commentary-when you do that it is surprising how short the actual game is.
I also wanted to share a movie that my husband had recorded, I think I read this came out around 2018. I watched it last night.
This takes place 20,000 years ago in Europe towards the end of the ice age. I loved this movie-there was a couple rough scenes but knew about this technique that the Native Americans used to kill numerous bison for food for the tribe over winter, and it's about wolves, of course I held back tears in spots too will watch it again. The special effects were amazing
Have an awesome week
