MORTICIA AND THE CHICKS-RUG HOOKING-A WEDDING AND A BIRTHDAY

31 05 2014

HELLO

MORTICIA

Pacing back and forth flying up to me on the fence I wish she could talk.  Then I got to thinking that she has never  been in the Caravan always laid her eggs in a nest box or shelf so she probably didn’t know what to do.  I couldn’t take the chance to leave her to find a way out so I brought her in.  First thing she chased all the chicks around and then checked out the nesting boxes. she hopped from nest box to nest box then she laid her egg.  SInce then she has laid an egg every day. 

The kids are annoying and even when she picks the highest place to perch she has company.  Sammy is the only chick to be able to fly that high.

Sammy loves her Mother and has a pitiful mournful cry when she can’t find her.  Maybe they will be pals when Sammy is out of her teenage years.  Chicken Little and Peepers stick together.  They have all grown so much.

 

PLANTS FROM THE SIDE OF THE ROAD

IMG_3170I dug these purple flowering plants on the side of a dirt road.   They have spread and are really beautiful.  Bloom this time of year and have a wonderful scent.  I don’t know what they are. I put a few Bleeding Hearts in with them .   I do love the scent and have bouquets all over the house now.

RUG HOOKING

I brought this fat cat pattern to the Mass show and started on it.  Its something that I have had for quite some time.  I am hooking it with yarn.

Yesterday while trying to find a certain box of summer clothes in the box room I came across  more and more handspun yarn.  I will have to make another long rug.  I did see some examples of ways to use up small pieces of yarn and will incorporate it with the pattern.

WEDDING DAY AND A BIRTHDAY

Today is my Son’s wedding day.    It’s a beautiful day with lots of sun and nice temps.  It will be held in a small old church in a nearby town and the reception will be held in his Church hall.  The old church has no electric and is quaint.  It’s a small wedding with that old fashion feeling.  Pot luck food and food cooked on the grill by my son-in-law Rick.  Lil and the boys will take an active part in the ceremony.  Pictures tomorrow. 

Today is also my God-Child’s birthday.  Happy Birthday Niquette.  Hope you have a wonderful day.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Carole.

Beautiful day for a wedding, though cool, you may need a sweater or shawl! Those flowers are Dame’s Rocket, some consider it invasive, but it is pretty. Your chickens are very entertaining, love reading about them. Hope your day was wonderful and special.
