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!



  1. Love the rooster, had one simular to yours and he was a sweetie too. It dont take long for them chicks to get big. We dont have much humidty just heat, yuck. well have a nice week.

  2. Hi Rose Mary!,
    Loved reading about your chicks, Rooster and found kitty! My grandma had tons of chickens, ducks, and even a pair of geese! I was scared of the geese cause they were so bossy and would always chase me!
    I miss having a cat (always had two or three underfoot)--my two elderly cats passed away last Fall. My grands and SIL are very allergic to them, so I must be content with my Buckeroo (and I am thankful for him) for now.
    I have heard about your rainy summer--I would love a bit of your humidity and heat (I miss hot summers, I know that sounds crazy!)
    Ours has been cool and a bit rainy with a few warm days thrown in.
    Missed you! Glad to see all is well!
    Blessings to you! Claudia O.

  3. What a cute story about your chicks and Adam :-} Wonderful photo! They must be such fun to watch. Your primitive kitty is adorable.

  4. Morning, Rosemary. Thanks for stopping by.
    We had chickens when I was younger. I loved holding the chicks, so soft. Pretty cat. I havent' owned a cat in over 20 yrs. Dh does not like'em.
    I think VBS has changed since I wnet to them. Used to be only koolaid and cookies, now its almost a meal. And it has gotten to be a big business. But it's fun to watch the younguns, they have such fun.

  5. It is sooo muggy here too, Rose Mary... my clothes just stick to me now. I love the surrogate dad! Too funny!

  6. Hi dear friend, enjoyed catching up with you! We've had a mild summer so far, today is perfect! I miss having chickens, maybe one day again? Hugs!!

  7. Saying hello to you!!! What a lovely rooster!

  8. It is very hot here on the coast of Texas. The chicks are really growing. I don't think we have cut our grass but once this year. It has showered just a little pretty often but nothing is growing it is so dry. I hope that doesn't mean we will have a hurricane this year.

    The kitty is very special. Sure hope he or she finds a good home. connie from Texas

  9. Oh, Miss Rosemary!
    That's one cat I won't be allergic too! I love it!
    Congratulations on the green lawn, but I'm "feeling your pain" about the mowing alot. Even though we've not had a lot of rain and our grass is rather "crispy", we're still having to mow every 3-4 days.
    What's that about?????

  10. Awww, look at the peeps; what a rare picture that is to have a rooster take on baby peeps. We have peeps just about your peeps age, along with 2 older hens, (3 yrs old) and an old rooster as well. We have housed the peeps inside since their arrival in mid June. I would like to let them out to roam with the others, however, reluctant to do so as I'm not sure the older ones would take to the newer ones. Not sure, if I'd be able to catch the new ones in the event all don't see eye-to-eye.
    We have a cat that looks so close to yours found last winter. Ours is a male (he's since been altered). Tiny, is what we named him, he was skinny, however, very affectionate, so we packed him in the car with us and brought him home. Just last month he got aweful sick, I rushed him to a vet and found he has what is called hemobartonella (from fleas)that he had prior to us rescuing him. He was on antibiotics for 3 weeks and is doing swell now. As a matter of fact, we have given him the nick-name of Dennis the Menace. He has such character!
