GREETINGS

The sky tonight was so beautiful.  In the north-western sky it was oranges and yellows and in the south-western sky it was red and blues.  I just love it when I have some time at the end of the day to sit and enjoy it.

NOVA SCOTIA NEXT SEPTEMBER

There is a wonderful trip to Nova Scotia next September and I am hoping to go.  It’s a 6 day bus tour leaving from Vermont.  It’s a rug hooking tour and we will be stopping at Searsport Rug Hooking Shop in Maine, Deanne’s studio in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Cheticamp for 2 nights and Encompassing Design SHop and of course we couldn’t miss seeing the enchanting Peggy’s COve.  The scenery will be breathtaking.  If the bus is full the rates are very low and its all-inclusive.  I will start saving for it now.  Even if you are not a rug hooker its a great way to see lots of Nova Scotia.

MORTICIA 

She is determined to be a Mother again.  In the morning she will fly out of the nest box and run around squawking getting a drink and quickly eating.  Getting back to her two little eggs as quick as she can.  I put plenty of hay in the nest box and she almost buries herself in it.  Tonight Mrs Brown has joined her.

THE KITCHEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN

The freezer is in the kitchen but not before all the herbs were taken out of the herb cabinet and it moved across the room.   The move was timely, at this time of year I like to look through all the herbs and refresh them.  This year I dried spearmint, sage, parsley, basil, cilantro, and dill.  I really didn’t think that I would like the arrangement but it made more room and looks quite nice.  I will finish it up tomorrow.

NO CROW COLLARS

They arrived yesterday and I will put them on the two young roosters over the weekend.  They are not harmful and I think may help the roosters to ive a longer life.  Roosters need to take a huge breath to crow.  The breath is about twice the size of a normal breath.  This collar will not allow them to take such a deep breath and while they will still crow it will not be of that loud volume.  I think this is a wonderful thing.  People always have roosters they love but live in the city and can’t keep them, The collar is lightweight and simple and in no way harmful.  I will let you now how it works .

Many thanks for reading my blog today , I hope you enjoyed the day.   Carole
