This was one of my jobs today – cleaning the goat pen and rebedding with bales of wood chips that have been in my garage for much too long.
We were at Mayo yesterday and Rick’s surgeon gave him the go-ahead to start helping around the farm. I think we have survived!
And I promised to show pictures of some gifts I received.
Helen from Alabama sent this cat sewing caddy made by her husband. The thimble goes on the tail, the spool in the middle and needle on the magnet. Very clever!
I have always, always wanted one of these kneelers and my good friends, Les and Diane thought I could use one this spring. I can turn it over for a place to sit and the sides help in standing up. We older gardeners need help.
Becky painted this “portrait “of Hazel -probably more of a caricature.
Our cousin, Jill, gave me this penny candy that we remember as kids – only it’s no longer a penny.
And remember those two cakes Reed and I baked?
This is Reed’s family before going to the parade on the Fourth.
June is thrilled to be eating cake on the holiday.
So so sweet!
And here’s my latest thrift store find.
A classic old German picture, 12″x16″,for $4.00. I believe it says God Bless Our Home. Can anyone confirm that?
Connie and I want to THANK YOU for sending your address label with your order. It has really made a difference in the time spent filling orders. There are many envelopes on their way – watch your mailbox.
More mowing and weeding today -my tan never gets a chance to fade. Ha!
