Monday Afternoon

Hello friends! It's a beautiful day here in the mountains, if you can take the heat! I went for a ride with hubby earlier today and took the picture above. As you can see, the mountains are especially pretty with that lovely blue haze they get~a lot like the Blue Ridge and Smokies.

Edmona and Lucy are both laying eggs again. The large brown one is from a neighbor. The little ones are a very pretty green, but the color doesn't show up well in the photograph.

We've been busy getting our front porch framed and the decking will be going on soon. About time, after living in the house seven years! Seems we are always behind on projects. But we'll get there eventually.

Everybody keep cool!

We continue to have a rainy summer, here at the cabin. By this time of year, my grass is usually dead, but this year we are still having to mow every four days or so to keep it down. It is hot and very muggy, so I only go out in the mornings or late evenings.

Edmona has rejected her chicks, so they have adopted Adam as their surrogate mother! He doesn't seem to mind at all, in fact, I think he rather enjoys them.

We are having a giveaway over on our Cordwood Cabin Primitives blog~so if you like this cute little kitty, go on over and register!

Wishing you all. . .

A Happy Fourth of July~a day early!!

I hope that all of you have a wonderful day tomorrow celebrating our precious freedom!!
All is well around here. It seems like I am not home enough to get everything done that I need to. We now have 16 chicks! Poor Lucy only hatched one, but Susan hatched seven, so we are going to have a nice flock.

Stay Cool!
