More candy corn & a new chapter...

Well I have been busy sewing the last couple of days...so now I need to stuff, stuff, stuff.. I did get these done yesterday!!!



And my hubby is starting a new chapter in his trucking career, kind of!! His beloved Peterbilt sold just the other day and I'll tell you what that was hard to see the old girl go out the driveway and down the road knowing that Joe wasn't the one driving it.... He has had that truck for 17 years and it has been a good truck, but with the way things are for us right now, something had to go. He actually has three trucks and has had them all for sale and just said which ever one sold the first he would just drive the other... easy to say hard to do when you are attached to something like he was that truck..


So now he will be driving this truck. Nothing wrong with it really...it's a big ole Kenworth, but he has always been a 'Pete Man'...he is already making noise that he will trade this for another Pete...lol...MEN!! But we are thankful for the sale, it has taken some pressure off..for now..but I still haven't been able to do my school shopping and Brandon's birthday is next week too...so there ya go!!
Have a blessed day.. and if you see our old truck give it a wave!!

Hi, I enjoyed my visit on your blog. Hubby sold out about a year and a half ago. Being independent with our own authority the outrageous fuel prices left us no choice. It's great to have my man home every night and his presence on the Ponderosa makes life easier for this Ozarks farm chick. Ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

Your pillows are cute...I know you felt sad about the truck. I had to get a new "used" car, and my jeep...well the wheels fell off sorta.....I needed a new car. We traded it in, and when we left it at the dealership, I cried...cried like a baby...my son and husband thought I had lost my mind for sure.....I still get teary eyed thinking about it..I loved that darn jeep..LOL
