I can’t wait to put my porch together but today I’ll sit at the table and chat awhile. I’ve loved hearing what you girls are doing – chores, projects, quilting, plants, gardens, animals and most of all purging and organizing!
When I move to a room, everybody moves with me! As you can see I had to clear the table so I could type! And there’s a cat in every single chair that you can’t see!
Reed came over yesterday after school and we moved his plants and his chickens to his house. I know those kids are beyond excited to have those chickens in their barn and I would be selfish if I didn’t let him take his hens from the previous two years. They spend the winter in my heated barn. I’ve said this before – I just love to see those happy chickens roaming the acreage – all over the yard, in the grove, by the wood piles, scratching for bugs and now they are living in a pen in the barn. I know they’re just chickens but why should this bother me so much? Think how happy those kids are! I probably should not have even written that but it’s on my mind this beautiful spring morning. Myra was so happy to those chickens! Wonder if she can get 7 on her head and arms? Haha!
Speaking of beautiful mornings – it’s going to get to 80 today and then possibly severe storms and then go back to 20 degrees below normal. Why oh why can’t we get some nice days all strung together? As I sit here writing this there are Orioles in the trees singing away stopping for a bite of grape jelly as they go by.
Recently when Rick was mowing he found quite a number of owl pellets – the regurgitated remains of animals the owl have killed and eaten.
Yesterday on my way to the garden I saw this huge pellet by the road – look how big it is!
Remember when Reed dissected those owl pellets last year and Hazel stood over his shoulder watching? Haha!
Mo is staying with us for the weekend while her dad goes fishing in South Dakota. She is so easy to have here – knowing all the rules when she arrives and she fits right into my day. The first night, last night, she didn’t sleep well so neither did I but tonight she’ll be very tired – I’ll make sure she’s very tired – haha!
My companions this morning.
I didn’t get to sew at all last night – late supper and could not get started! This is what Connie is working on – her Bullseye quilt! I love her fabric choices, don’t you? Yes, mine is finished but not quilted.
Next week I’m going to tell you about a new “game” we’re all going to play. For you longtime Country Threads followers, do you remember Connie’s UFO game? More next week on that subject.
So it’s outside to get to work for me now. I’ll look forward to hearing from you girls tonight when I come in!
