Here are just a few of the flags around the farm.
Flag Day is a special day for the Etherington Family. Today Rick and I are celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary. (Celebrating is used loosely as he is driving to Wisconsin – ha! – and won’t be home till tomorrow nite.). Today is also Rick’s son Eric’s 30th birthday. It is also Eric and Nikki’s 2nd wedding anniversary AND—–drumroll please! Nikki is in labor with their first child, a baby girl named Camber. Oh my, what a day this is! Let’s hope she makes her appearance on the 14th and doesn’t make us all wait until the 15th.
I made this quilt 19 years ago and I hang it up every year. This year it’s hanging in the porch where I’m sitting while I write this. The birds are singing and there is such a nice breeze even though we are expecting thunderstorms later. There are many wrens, a cardinal, an oriole, robins, a red headed woodpecker, a pair of mourning doves and finches in the yard and at the feeders. Just delightful.
