With cool mornings comes renewed energy that Summer seems to drain from all of us.
Everyone kicks up their heels in the moist morning air.
Racing around the pasture, expending pent-up energy...
before settling down for the task at hand...
While the horses graze, the donkeys continue the fun and games.
(poor Chloe looks like she just got a sucker punch!)
it's all a game.
Eventually, calm returns to the pasture...
the entertainment is over...and I get back to chores.
Look what I happened to find in one of the flower boxes in the garden...
All summer I have wondered where those crazy guineas were laying eggs.
It seems this is one spot.
Our guineas have historically been very poor parents,
so I swipe these eggs to use in a display basket in the house.
Age unknown, I am not risking eating this clutch.
Lastly, I wanted to show you a project that I just finished.
I found this vintage shopping cart in a local antique market.
It was skeletal and needed a bit of dressing up,
so I constructed this bag to line it.
The beauty of these rolling carts is... they fold flat for storage!
Oh, if I lived in a town or city, I would definitely use this
It could also be a laundry basket.
I am hoping, instead, to sell it.
