NEW SHEEP – MOVING CHICKENS – PREPARING FOR THE HURRICANE – EMMA BRIDGEWATER POTTERY

27 10 2012

HELLO


You just never know how new animals will fit in.  The llama is talking and talking.  I am sure it’s about the new sheep.  He is used to dark sheep so the white ones have thrown him off.  The new sheep are quite delightful, very friendly and are just trying to fit in.  I am certainly surprised at Marley.  He is such a bully but not this time he stays his distance and just stamps his feet.  Soon they will be a group it just takes a little time.  One thing for sure the flock is glad that the new girls are  not too fond of carrots.  That is one thing in their  favor.

MOVING THE CHICKENS

With record winds and lots of rain  expected it was time to move the outside hens into the barn.  I did a little more whitewashing but didn’t quite finish their coop but it  was ready everything clean and inviting.  It took about an hour to catch 9 hens.  Some were easier than others.  Bernice screamed so loud and didn’t stop till I put her in the coop.  I will give them Oatmeal tomorrow morning.  They will settle in quickly and be safe and warm throughout the storm.

EMMA BRIDGEWATER POTTERY

A friend, Louise from my old job gave me this cup and saucer.  I love the size and shape of it and immediately went looking for a couple more.  But none was to be found.  I guess that they stopped making cups and saucers this size.  Its a perfect size for a good cup of tea.  And I did love the whimsical cats on it.  She does some wonderful whimsical patterns and some very modern patterns.

PREPARING FOR THE  STORM

I have been busy all day preparing for the storm,  I need to cover the windows that I am having replace with plastic before I call it a day.  I have a wood stove and gas range so I can cook on both of them and keep the kitchen warm.  Its suppose to become much colder and today there was a slight chill in the air.  Tomorrow morning I will finish up putting away lawn furniture.

Hope your day is wonderful and thank you so much for reading my blog.

About your cup and saucer. This is a very old and valuable cup and saucer. It was only made for a very short time and there is a matching plate and french bowl and mug.

Thanks so much for the info. I could never find much info about it. I love her older tea cups and saucers.
