Monday Monday


Well the rain has stopped but it feels like I need to get out my overcoat! So happy for the rain as everything is so green and the gardens look so good. I just have to get use to 90 degree weather turning into 45 degree weather. This is the time of year where we are usually having hot humid days so I won't complain about this little cool spell. My okra is growing so fast! My cherry tomatoes are loaded, if they only will turn ripe. The lettuce and onions are making lots of good salads and the cucumber and bean plants are looking good. Am so blessed everything seems to be growing and going to supply us with plenty to eat. Miss Diva is giving almost 5 quarts of milk a day now. She is doing so well. The chickens are growing and hopefully the first of August we will have eggs. I have done laundry and cleaned the chicken and goat sheds. Made a run of soap and talked with my neighbor down the road. She sells chickens and ducks. She gave me some gourds for birdhouses and also some gourd seeds to plant. I am going to put a sign in her yard about selling goats milk as she lives right on the side of the road and I live down a long long dirt lane. I am going to help her set up an etsy account so she can sell her painted gourds and other craft items. She is soooo talented! This has been a good Monday so I am very thankful! Hope your day was a good one and that you remember to count your blessings and forget the negatives.

Everything sounds wonderful! Even though we are only a couple states away our growing season has just begun. I can't wait for fresh green beans and big fat garden tomatoe. My favorite meal.

I so enjoyed this post -- so positive, and reaffirming that we should really be thankful for all our blessings. Rain would definitely be a blessing here! You just keep inspiring me, Peggy. I love reading about your days! Hugs to you and Ms. Diva!

This is that yucky weather that makes you have headaches too. Stay dry so you don't catch a spring cold.

Take care,
Connie

I took a course once in painting goards. Lots of fun. I wasn't very good at it but some of the others I saw were just beautiful. Some people are so talented.

Do you have varments that try and get at your chickens. We lost several to minks every year. The kids were always so devistated at the site that we just gave up.

You need to post some pics of the gourds when you get your camera up and running! Good luck on your new venture!
