I'm Not Blond!

I was messing around tonight with a light that I had broken (ahem, ahem), and in the process of fixing it I decided to unplug it for safety. I took the light bulb out, fixed the problem and put the light bulb back in. Then I had to test it out so I went to turn it on. Nothing. I turned the switch again. Nothing still. After a few more tries that ended in failure I took the light bulb out and started messing around in there again. Dad says " Be careful, Priscilla!"  and I respond " Don't worry! It's unplugged!" Oh! That's why it wouldn't turn on!
No, I'm not blond!


Fall is here! Isn't it so nice to have cooler weather? Here are some random pictures I've taken...


We have a tree-house that I climbed into the other day and I thought this was a cool picture...
Our flag through the trees.


Can you guess what this is?
You may not want to know...
I just had to post to get rid of that last silly post from always coming up;)

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

Hahaha! Someone got on your blog because someone left it up for someone to mess with. ;)
Hello, followers of Cilla! This is her mischievous sister causing just a little bit of trouble. ;)
Well, goodbye!
I better get off before I am caught! ;)

Hats and Things

I just finished knitting a hat the other day. It is one of my favorites.  I might add a rosette later.
Can you see the needles at the top? ; )
This is before it was finished.
I like the way it fits over my head so nicely. Most of mine don't turn out like that.
Now I am making another one for my sister. : )

For a while we had been smelling a very bad smell in the fridge and then I went into a deep recess looking for something and found this...
Nasty, nasty lemon!
Isn't this pretty? We got this little set from a friend. One of her friends made it.
A sunset...
I hope you have a lovely day! I did a little bit of yard work today and the weather was beautiful! Enjoy it!

P.S. Here is the hat with the rosette...
What do you think?

When the Cat's Away, the Mice Will Play

"When the cat's away, the mice will play." I have found this little saying to be very true in certain cases. Take this one for example. Mom goes to the store about once a week. On this particular day she leaves at about 10:00 A.M. As she says her good-byes and be-goods we nod, wave and get started on our school. Then her car disappears down the driveway...and we wait...5...10 minutes, until someone can wait no longer and goes into the living room to play ship on the couch. Another and another sibling joins this one until everyone's there, and a wild game is under way. Cushions start coming off the couch, rescues are made to the drowning, and pirates are defeated! But ship gets a little dull after a while and so other games get started. We've made cushion-houses that you could hardly squeeze into; we've played King and Queen, making thrones with cushions stacked high; we've played sandwich: a cushion, a person, a cushion, a person, etc. until the top falls off; we've played pillow fight, trampoline and so on. But then, around 12:00, someone sounds the alarm: Mom is coming! There is a mad dash as the pillows are thrown back on the couches, the living room is straightened (the house, also, for the fun had spread), and everyone goes back to school. Then we calmly go outside and help bring in the groceries. 
This jumping on the furniture was allowed,
since it was an old mattress,
but it still somewhat shows you how wild we were. ; )
A little side note... in this narrative you find out that we were being deceptive, which God sees as unrighteous (The wicked man does deceptive work, but he who sows righteousness will have a sure reward. Proverbs 11:18) so please do not follow our example.
Another side note... this was a really looooooong time ago... ; )
