Aren`t they beautiful! I love fresh eggs A five minute ride to my neighbor`s (too hot to walk)! It`s nice knowing where your food comes from. Her rooster is an extra benefit. I call him food for the soul. Every morning he announces the day. I grew up hearing roosters, watching squirrels steal corn from the corn crib and dodging a friends gander who liked scaring the bejeebers out of two little girls. When you are small that wingspan makes him look like a 747.
Our air is less humid and temperatures are rising. After I walk Sam in the morning I fill outside water dishes for the quail, rabbits and whatever else comes along. One summer day we found a King Snake chillin` in a water dish. Late afternoons I deep water my willows and lilacs. This morning I packed up hubby`s clothes to donate to a local charity. Big step. I`m also donating all my vintage and antique linens and glassware. My Quaker Lace tablecloths too. Why keep that stuff packed away taking up room? I reconnected with two half sisters I haven`t seen in years. They found me. It is nice. Making plans to paint the house exterior and rent a dumpster to clean up the acre. So much stuff!
I have pack rats in one shed. I`ll deal with them next week. When you put some light on where they stay they tend to go elsewhere. So, I`m clearing that building entirely out leaving no room for them to hide. Yuk! I don`t poison critters because something else, perhaps an owl, vulture or hawk will eat them and also be poisoned. I`ll be sewing in a few minutes for the See You In September Blog Hop. I am so happy to be motivated again.
That`s about all for today. Thank you for stopping by.
