|Hey there, girls! Working on some more eggs for us this morning?|
|Here comes the sun. (Doo-d-doodoo)|
Well, hm. Lookie what I found out here in the grass...
(Someone is going to hear about this...)
'Morning, Penny and anonymous kitty. Tired from barking all night, girl?
Go back to sleep. Don't mind me.
|Just love how the canopy of trees lets the morning in little by little here.|
|Oh, alright. Now that you're awake are you coming along?|
Do you see that bird up there?
|The soundtrack to our morning walk, that bird up there, singing its heart out.|
Wild berries of some kind -- not sure what kind.
Mulberries? Very small bush, though,for mulberries...
|Up the hill toward the cemetery. |
"People are just dying to get in here," as my Dad used to always say.
|The fall batch of hedgeapples. Can you see them?|
|There's my girl. Walked with me all the way up to the cemetery and back.|
And then there's this kitty. She walked half-way up with us,
then stood in the middle of the road and meowed
until we met her on the way back, then joined us for the walk home.
Lazy little kitty. Smart little kitty.
But it's all good. As the temperatures continue to soar and the humidity climbs with it, I think I'd probably rather realistically have the central air conditioning in the new house than this marginally better view. No kidding!
We're all busy packing and organizing, dotting all our Is and crossing all our Ts to get this move rolling. We're half way through clearing the outside storage trailer, compiling bins, making "give-away" piles and filling the dumpster. We have a couple of insurance quotes to decide between for our home insurance, and have scheduled a walk-through for Friday evening, to measure doors and walls -- to see what will go where to map out a strategy for moving day. And Dan's going to walk the property to measure for fencing and what we need to do to move the hens over gracefully. So, yes indeed: things are coming along. (You'd think maybe we'd done this before, huh?) Less than a month until the big day, though! We can't wait!
