It started at 5:30 this morning when the
chickens were going absolutely bonkers
I was convinced that the resident fox was
tormenting them again and got up and
ran out to give him the "what for!".
However, there was no fox.
It was an empty waterer
that had their feathers all in a
fluff. Good Grief!
Well, actually I am thankful that they
tell us such things.
Sometimes they go through it so quickly....
and it has been hot lately.
My funny girl, Mabel, came into the
box and chattered away at me....
pointing out the empty waterer.
Love that hen.
By the way,
we have five chicks in the nursery.
We removed a hen and set her up
to raise them until they are big enough
to stand up to the rooster.
That rooster is a bugger!
I've seen him intentionally step on
the chicks....no more, big guy!!
I decided, since it was early, to
peek out the front window and see
who might be playing in the field across
There were five or six deer out there.
Some fawns and Mommas.
The fawns were playing together...
chasing each other and bounding about.
Well, anyway so the hens
had me awake and the dogs
were up early.
Up and out with belly aches.
Someone....(me)....had given them
too much table food.
I've been cleaning up messes
over the past 18 hours so when they were
eager to get outside and then were quite
busy with making themselves feel better
I started weeding my perennial bed.
Now I thought I would just pull a few weeds.
Then one thing led to another and I did the whole bed.
Wow! Did it need it!
I also took out most of the mallow as the
Japanese beetles were attacking it and it
was looking rather ugly.
While I was out there pulling weeds I saw that
they launched two hot air balloons today.
I'm going to show some of Chelsea's Photos soon.
But for this post I have included pictures I took
yesterday at Longwood Gardens. We took a
quick trip over there yesterday afternoon.
It was nice to be there again.
It had been too long.
I came inside and decided to pay the bills.
Got that done....
Decided to start some wash....
Found some coupons for Costco....
Cut those out.
It is 8:11 am and I am trying to decide which
direction to head in next.
I have a whole host of things on my
"to do" list for today.
Good thing I got a head start!
Here's the tentative list:
Four loads of laundry
Scrub bathroom and kitchen floors.
Make 5 hot chocolate mugs
Make 2 new bowl candles
What are you up to today?
Hopefully you are able to focus......
