Some pictures of the morning.  More good weather for us but next week will be full of rain.  Things need to get done before the rains come.


I started redoing the hen-house.  Putting in foam insulation and new boards on the back and side walls.  That is all I am going to do.  I spent most of yesterday doing that and am only half done.Its not perfect but I think it will help keep the house a little warmer and eliminate some of the moisture.  



I still may have to get a small fan to run during the day.  I will need to bring these hens in before I leave for the NY show.  That is on October 19th and 20th.  The weather can become fickle by then.  I have been there when its hot and also when there is snow flurries.    Everything but the foam was recycled.  The wood is from a floor that had to be taken up at my son’s house and some from part of my kitchen floor.  Today I will be searching for some wood to make the door.


Yesterday I got some cherry wood to burn this winter.  It’s from a tree that had fallen down a couple of years ago


  It is dry enough to  burn  now.  I used almost 1-1/2  cords of wood last winter and  I think that I may find enough to cut up between my son’s yard and mine.  That will save me $300.  


I grow my own Comfery in my yard but it grows so much better in my son.’s yard  I need to pick some and dry them so that I can make salve throughout the winter.



On my son’s property there are 4 American Chestnut trees and they are ready to drop their lethal nuts soon.  The  nuts are covered with thorny spikes, and I honestly don’t know how the squirrels get them.

Today I am going to hook some flowers for the show, I am glad to get back to some hooking.

Thank you for reading my blog today and I hope you day is perfect.  Carole
