GREETINGS

MORTICIA

Morticia is sitting on two eggs this morning and acting very broody.  As soon as the two roosters start crowing she and Samantha will be moved outside, sharing the side yard with Mrs. Brown,Hazel and Millie.  They will be separated for a time until they get used to each other.

A FAMILY OF WRENS

Mom and Dad have been feeding the young in the front bird house.IMG_3303

.  They are small birds with sweet voices.  I think they are Wrens.

 The side bird house has chickadee’sin it this year.  There is a large Robin’s nest in the willow tree and a Blue Jay nest in the CHestnut tree next door.  The morning songs are wonderful.

GREENFIELD FARMERS COOP

The Greenfield Farmers Coop lost a valuable employee this past week.  Jimmy passed away suddenly.  He was my to go to person for anything to do with animals.  He was helpful, funny and kind.  He will be sorely missed.  It reminds me to take the time to tell people how much I appreciate them.

A SURPRISE IN THE MAIL

Yesterday I got a surprise in the mail from my friend Susan.  T wonderful red embroidery pieces.

I just love them and will incorporate them into a small bed pillows.  I have bed pillows and use them every night and Minnie does too.

 They made my day.  I want to do more embroidery this year and last year bought a book on patterns.  I have started one but used a flimsy muslin and now realize that I really needed a stronger more dense fabric. The boys and I cleaned out the most of the bottom of the barn yesterday.  It is all orderly and things easy to get to.  They both are so very  helpful to me.  Today we will spend some time in the attic.  I want to clean it out and label each box.  It will be time consuming to do that but in the end I will save lots of time knowing what is in each box.  I am sure I will find some treasures too.

THE OLD SINK OR ZINK AS MY GRANDMOTHER CALLED IT

This sink was at the side of the road.  I loved it and had many ideas of what could be done with it.  But it was fall then so it was put in the back of the downstairs barn. Rediscovered again yesterday, Ricky will make a bird bath for the side yard out of it.

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