How can it be Saturday already? The days fly by! Since very hot temps were predicted for today and tomorrow, I pushed myself to keep mowing yesterday. I love a newly mowed lawn.
As I walked around the yard this morning, I saw lots of beauty including Telly who is hoping that squirrel in the tree would magically come down.
The hydrangeas are profuse!
As is the hops vine which is downright invasive.
Boston Ivy is beautiful as well but Rick hates having it growing on a building so he kills it whenever he gets the chance! It’s growing nicely this year since he’s not outside! Smile.
On to the barn where the chicks have earned their freedom to go outside.
They are happy little teenage girls – running here and there, flapping their wings and loving life in general. Every night they roost in the same place – where I had them locked in originally – and that’s good that they know where to go at night. I count to 14 every night but last night I only found 13! I looked and looked for the 3rd white one. I had to give up and assume she was there – somewhere. Sure enough, this morning when I opened the feed room door for Hazel, there she was, wanting out to get a drink first thing.
This is Hazel’s position in the feed room wanting a mouse to come out of the wall.
She’ll be waiting a long time – Mama and the kitties are super mousers – there are no mice to be had in our barn!
And what’s this????
A newly hatched chick! Please pray that it’s not a rooster! I swear I’ve been watching the ceiling area for hens sitting on eggs – obviously I missed this one. Please, be a girl! Please, be a girl!!!!
Kevin dug the holes for the hostas last weekend and they look so nice.
On to the shop – these shirts are begging to be a quilt!
I finished The Outsider by Stephen King and really enjoyed it actually. Now I get to read the Beartown sequel Us Against You. Connie also gave me the audible book by Patterson and Clinton, The President Is Missing, which she loved.
Reed is coming to hang out today – there are so many things we can do!
Maybe the next post will be Misc because I’ve got about a dozen little things to tell you about- I enjoy your comments about your own lives and activities.
