Thanks Julia for hosting, Join in the fun and share  Here
On the kitchen table, finishing up things
12 entire bobbins of thread later....
I have 3 bags and 9 hanging pocket  creations
to take to market this weekend
and quite a mess to clean up!!

I had to drive the children to school this morning
I was very cranky they missed the bus we do live
 quite a ways out. Picked up my sweet 'littlefoot'
she is not feeling well and her mom has to work
On the drive home, I caught a glimpse of something in
the ditch about to run in front of me. It was low and
blended in with the brown grass of the ditch.
It was a
I got slowed down and it looked me right in the
A magnificent wild animal
We call them Mountain Lions here
Sightings are rare. I was stunned and awed by
the sleek beauty as it ran across the road in front of me
No time for photos, they move too quickly
{thanks google image search for the photos}
I feel so lucky to have witnessed this crossing
I just keep thinking how absolutely beautiful it was.
All muscle, sleek sinewy elegance,
the look made my heart pound, it was a challenge 
'I am wild and will never be tamed,'
I was thinking but what would it be like to try....

...and then, I was thinking I'll bet that's how my 'Romeo' felt
when he first saw me.....that's right cougar got you Romeo!!

Lol - love this post. He's one lucky fellow, for sure :)
How amazing to see a cougar like that, magnificent creatures - bet that made your day!!
Loved your tidy-ups and bags, did they go well at the market? Hope so after all your hard work. I can never tell how my stuff is going to sell, some markets are better than others.
Yep, the photos of my village are all mine. I bought my DH a REALLY nice camera last year and it's easy to take good pics.
Hugs, LLJ xx
