The chicks moved to the barn today – into the infirmary with the crippled hens. They won’t likely even go outside until next spring unless we have a very warm fall.
The kennel is back to normal.
Look at all these little succulent “pups” sprouting on these leaves – just laying outside on a table! It can’t get any easier than that!
I have played the piano for hours every day this week preparing for the funeral tomorrow. Without Margaret playing along with me, I’m a nervous wreck! I’m sure it will go okay but there’s a lot of timing that goes into church music – processional and recessional being the biggest issue – music needs to be timed so that I don’t stop playing too early or playing longer than I should. Ugh. You get the picture.
I got these small panels of hymns from my friend, Amy. This afternoon I made a pan of lasagna for Margaret and while it was in the oven, I made this very simple little quilt to give her instead of a card. It says “strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow” from the song Great Is Thy Faithfulness”. This is my wish for her!
It was a beautiful 75 degree day with lots of sun and no wind – just perfect! We’re still enjoying homegrown sweet corn – anyone else? Connie and Roy are on their way to Shanksville, PA for the 9/11 ceremony.
Keep in touch!
