Prelude to Summer

After every weekend, I am always so excited to sit down and chat with you...
so many stories...
so much to share!

We were treated to an absolutely gorgeous weekend on the farm.
Temps in the 70's on Saturday and 80's on Sunday
gave us the opportunity to finish a lot of Spring chores.

Sunday morning we awoke at 5 AM.   By 5:30 I was in the shower getting ready for the day.

Suddenly, our world was plunged into darkness...
the power was out!
Ordinarily this is no problem, 
we have a large generator that kicks in when the power goes out.
However with 40 new chicks and no functioning heat lamp...
we had to hustle to get warmth to our tiny charges.

Hubbs went to the barn to get the small generator.
Unfortunately, we could not get it started.
An extension cord from the house down the driveway solved the problem.

Later in the day we built a fire in the brick pizza oven 

and had our first homemade pizzas of the year.
Amanda had asked some friends to stop by at the farm...

giving us the perfect opportunity to socialize our pup, Annie.

Of course all the dogs benefit from guests!

They are always a part of the fun.

Last week, Amanda brought home new flyers that she designed for her job.
You might notice that the photos on the flyers feature Jenn and Tyler...and Grammie too!

These will be featured on billboards in northern PA, also.
