THE POP UP SHOP-HELEN-EDDIE- SHIELS SPINNING WHEELS

GREETINGS

The weather here has been wonderful,  for the past 5 nights it has not gotten below freezing.  I can’t remember a time in mid December that it has happened.  the temps will dip this coming weekend but then warm up again for the holidays.  

Last week I got the flu shot.  I have been doing it for years.  Now having Lymes disease it seems more important to keep myself away from the flu. There are two flu shots one for people under 65 and the other for people over 65.  I got the one for over 65 and have not felt well since.  I will think twice next year and check with my clinician at The Wellness Clinic before getting it.

THE POP UP SHOP

What a wonderful idea from Christa.  Its worked out so well for all of us.  People just love a place that sells locally made things..  Everyone’s things are different and wonderful.  Wish  we could do it every year.  Thanks Christa for setting it up.

HELEN

She is laying eggs again and is perky and bright.  Its been a long haul but so worth it.   It will be great for her to be outside this next summer.  I will be changing all the side area around.  The large tree was cut down and a new tree to give them shade will be planted in one of the chicken yards.  Which means that another yard must be made.  A fun project.  

EDDIE

Eddie has been showing his powerful (so he thinks) rooster self lately.  He is only about 8 inches tall!!!!   Yesterday he jumped out of the coop and was flying around the bottom of the barn.  he had gotten himself stuck between rolled up chicken wire and dog crates.  It took me about 15 minutes to find him.  I am more cautious now when opening the door.

SHIEL’S SPINNING WHEELS

I had a delightful surprise in the mail the other day.  I small package from Ireland.  It was a handmade wooden tree made by Johnny Shiels.  It is so beautifully made and will go perfectly with my Christmas village.

He is hoping to see where all the  Shiels Spinning Wheels are located.   Do you have one???   I will be trying to locate owners here in the states and in Canada.  If you own one of these wonderful wheels please let me know.
