Isn't it strange that the very best days are just regular days
spent doing regular chores...
surrounded by my critters!
Immersing myself in farm chores gave me such satisfaction.
Not to mention a return to the comforts of home!
A lot changed in the two weeks we were gone.
Everything is blossoming.
The containers that I planted before leaving on vacation have filled in nicely.
The garden is filled with tasty edibles.
The strawberries, a little late this year, should soon begin to ripen.
Garden boxes are growing, growing, growing!
It was nice to once again visit with Ginger and MaryAnn.
I think they were truly happy to see me.
We are officially in fly mask season.
Everyone got new fly masks this summer.
Daphne and Chloe are sporting "full coverage" models...
A sudden surge in temperatures makes everyone just a little lazy.
Tom and Chuck, with new tail feathers, are up to their old tricks.
Mama Quackers still sits on her nest of eggs.
I am hoping that very soon we will have new life at the pond.
Annie has matured in the two weeks we were away.
She now sits in the passenger seat of the gator during chore time...
patiently waiting as I go from task to task.
Everyone fared quite well while we were gone...
thanks to the love and care of good friends and family.
Thank-you, Jim and Kathy, Anna and Amanda!!
