It’s been a long mowing day for me today and it was hot, too. My shoulders blistered from the burn I got when we planted the garden and today I burned them again. Ouch! I can’t wait to hit the shower tonite.
I promised I’d speak to the question someone posed “what is Beartown?” Beartown is a novel by Fredrik Backman and is in my Top Ten favorite novels of all times. It’s about a small town and their high school hockey team – which doesn’t sound all that intriguing but I loved the book, so did Connie and many of our book club members. I pre-ordered the sequel and it came today!
So this is my next read – just as soon as I finish The Outsider by Stephen King which I’m enjoying very much. I wanted to read in the porch today but mowing interfered- ha!
Our 3 acres of hay was cut yesterday and raked today – hopefully it can be baled tomorrow. Our house faces south, the barn, and beyond the goat pasture is the 3 acres of alfalfa which is baled for me to feed the goats during the winter. I have absolutely nothing to contribute to this big job – our neighbor does it for us and we split the bales of hay.
Someone asked if Mama Kitty was still around – yes, she sure is! I can be very, very close to her but she won’t let me touch her. And that’s ok with me – she won’t want to be in the house then, will she?
And here’s Reedo Burrito – just as sweet as his namesake!
I found JB in the hay bunk, sound asleep.
The chicks have learned to roost – this picture was taken last night but tonight all 14 girls were roosting on the top rung! So cute!
We have a favor to ask of you readers – remember I said I was going to put advertising on the blog? Did you realize that each ad you click on pays us a nominal amount of money? I’d like to encourage you to click on those ads – it’s your way to keep enjoying this blog.
Remember when Connie posted a step by step explanation about picking fabrics for Cobblestone? That little quilt is already finished – I’ll post the picture tomorrow. How does that girl sew so fast????
I told you I hated weeding the flower bed – I’ve made a bit of progress. Not a lot but I’ll continue to work at it.
One of the jobs I’ve never had to do is go to town for lawn mower gas – until now, that is. Another chore! This is one chore that I always knew Rick would handle.
No, I didn’t drive the golf cart to town – I just hauled it to the shed from the pickup.f
And remember Moda? The feral cat that has lived here for about 15 years? She likes to lounge on the top of the trellis.
It’s been a long day, gals! More tomorrow if time allows. And thank you for the help with the ads.
