Snowy Start to November

This is the view out of our back door on November 1. Snow definitely came to South Carolina - the earliest recorded snowfall ever and that goes back to the 1800's. You can see some of the branches and trees that came down. We have a little over 9 acres of  heavily wooded property so it's a mess. My husband works out there nearly ever day clearing up more of the fallen limbs, branches, etc. We have to feel fortunate that our vehicles and our house were not damaged.

We lost electricity for most of the day, but it was back on a little after dark so I have no complaints about that. However, our phone and internet service were gone until November 11. I still can't believe it took them so long. We have our lines underground and there was no damage anywhere along the road that should have impacted us. The final report was that a pin was out at the junction box. That means nothing to me and doesn't sound like the kind of repair that should take 10 days, but what do I know?

I finished my Scrappy Trips Around the World quilt which I made as the result of Bonnie Hunter's class for our guild last fall. I like how it turned out. I added the additional borders based on my personal preference and like them on there.

There has been a lot going on, but most of it is just normal day-to-day events. My Arabian horse returned in October. He had been living in North Carolina for about 3 years so my daughter could enjoy him. It took a little while to get the two horses used to each other, but they are pretty settled in now. They actually did really well the second day. Here they are eating hay together, but then the dominance games began. Neither is fully willing to concede that he or she is not the one in charge.

I'm sure to be working on Christmas gifts over the next few weeks so I'll be back to post some of my projects soon.
