Our garden is in and growing like gangbusters! The potatoes are going wild. I am so excited to see what kind of harvest we will get this fall.
It’s been a pretty calm week here, well except for that one time the oldest country kid started a fire in the kitchen trying to boil water. LOL Yup, he turned on the wrong burner and I am still not sure why there were flames shooting up around the empty pan. No worries, I put it out quick enough and calmed a very upset young man. I am proud to say, he continued on with his cooking and finished making lunch! So proud of him for not giving up.
So what made me smile this week?
|We are going to have a bumper crop of black raspberries this year! |
|Nothing like a farm girl manicure. |
|Fifi decided to give the top roost a try. She is a brave little pullet. |
|Lily is my gardening buddy. She promised not to nibble anything. |
|The sparrows are recycling any dropped chicken feathers they find. |
|Our newest member to the homestead, Layla. |
|We will call this “Duck in motion.” Baby Girl loves her pool time. |
|The littlest aren’t so little anymore. My babies are growing up and becoming beautiful young girls. |
|Silly Baby Girl sitting in a dirty pool. She REALLY loves the pool. Ick! |
|Making new friend one inch worm at a time. |
|Buffy looked a little ticked of and bewildered about Fifi continuing to try to roost on the “Big Girl” roost. |
|A female mason bee who laid her eggs in our bee condo.|
|Baby Girl is very impatient while waiting for HER pool to be filled. |
Have I mention that she REALLY loves the pool?!?!
|“Hi mom, do you have any treats?” |
|Spoil, spoon fed chickens. Rice, it’s what’s for treat time! |
|They followed me back to the house demanding treats. |
|Nothing like make believe camping, complete with a “fire” and roasting stick, to make childhood memories. |
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
