Weed and Feed

It was a nicer day today… less humidity and a great evening to get out in the garden to pull weeds. The vegetable plants are growing like crazy and I am happy to see them get bigger and not die 🙂 I wanted to get all the weeds away from my growing plants so they can keep growing and not fight for the nutrients. … Read More Weed and Feed

Watermelon Chicken

Today was a good day once my migraine went away. I went this morning for a hike with my friend, her dogs, and my dogs. We went along a trail that follows this good size stream that ends in a waterfall. The dogs had a great time and it helped Chase get a little more confident in the water as my friends dog’s love … Read More Watermelon Chicken

Peek-A-Boo and Proposals

The girls were playing a game today of what appeared to be peek-a-boo with the sun. As the sun came out and got hotter they ran under trees or the shade of the coop, then when the sun would hide behind a cloud they would run out and peck for goodies. They especially loved to peck around where I cleaned and emptied out the baby pool the dogs … Read More Peek-A-Boo and Proposals

Prayers and Flowers

What a crazy week and hot end to the week. The temp is over 80*, but the humidity makes it very hot. It seems to fit memorial day weekend when all the pools open and BBQ start full force. We don’t have many plans for the weekend. If it is not too hot tomorrow  a friend who has two golden retrievers and I with my two … Read More Prayers and Flowers

Breakfast with the birds…

Hello followers and visitors… it’s almost the weekend and a holiday weekend at that. I don’t know about where you live, but it is already hot and humid here today. The sun is out but a haze is across the sky. This hasn’t stopped our pup Baxter from sunning in his black coat… I am enjoying a few moments in bed blogging (hubby was sweet enough to … Read More Breakfast with the birds…

White and Red Hot

Anyone know what this tree is? This tree is in the yard and I had never paid attention to it before. The other day I was out mowing and saw these white flowers on the tree. They look like little bells to me. I think the next few days will be shorter posts as I have so much to do and catch up on … Read More White and Red Hot

Happy … Read More Two Turtle Doves…

Today was another outdoor day… I had to take a break between 2 and 4 due to the heat and sun. So here is a recap of what I have done over the last two days outside… First I had to clean out all of the flower beds, raking up all the leaves and things into piles, then digging out all the plants and … Read More Transformation…

I did a lot of yard work raked up all the hay from cutting the grass, cleaned out the flower beds, dug up some plants I no longer want in the flower beds, and put together the new trailer for the garden tractor (with Dad) so I can collect all the … Read More Ladybug, Ladybug, don’t fly away…
