Other than getting all choked up at the 9/11 news coverage, this has been such a wonderful morning. I was sick at the end of last week and over the weekend, and it’s a blessing to have my energy back. Seth and Sarah played together very well all morning. I’ve decided that 3 and 4 year olds are the best! They can talk and imagine things and play for hours. I’m already all sentimentally sad that this is their last year together before Seth starts school.
I tidied up like a Suzy Homemaker and my house is cleaner than normal, I feel grand. Jacob texted me and said he forgot stuff so we buzzed downtown and then walked to the library together. It is a hot and humid day today, the dog is currently passed out under my feet as I type and the little ones are napping with their library books.
The hens were in the middle of bathtime when I arrived to get the eggs. I love to watch them dust bathe, they scratch and fling dirt all over their feathers.
After some cool, rainy days I think they love lying in sunbeams, soaking up the rays.
The hen in the back ground is stretching.
Sometimes the eggs come home looking like this and I have to wash them up.
Today’s gatherings, so far. Delicious, nutritious eggs. It’s such a blessing to have them.
TODAY’S INSPIRATIONAL CHALKBOARD MESSAGE:
Today was Mr. G’s last day selling his garden produce. (Our neighbor) He and his wife are selling their property and moving away. I’m so sad. The children and I have been walking down every summer for the last 7 years to buy his vegetables. Today the sign says, “Last Day! Thanks everybody, it’s been fun!” I bought some things today, including 2 dozen ears of corn. We’re having a big salad dinner tonight, with corn on the side.
The masons are finishing up their work on the fireplace and I can’t wait until they’re done because the dust! is awful…but they are doing such a great job and I love the stonework.
I made a blueberry coffeecake yesterday, so yummy! I’m enjoying some coffee as I type.
In a Marigold Fiesta mug.
These are the books Seth and Sarah chose at the library. Sarah says hers is called I am Absolutely a Potato, and Seth says his is I am Not Even Really Tired.
They make me LAUGH.
