Perfect Monday


Today was a good day! Got lots of things done and even had time to relax and read.

My neighbor Fran called me at 8 this morning to see if we were going anywhere so she would know how to dress for the day. I told her I had lots of places I had to go but she wanted to go too. First we took the trash off and talked with the old gentlemen there. They are so nice and get my bags of garbage out for me. Then it was on the feed and seed store. This store has been around forever. The grandfather opened it before I was even born, then his son took over and now the grandson is running it. They are so nice and helpful. They always tell me what is the best buy for cheapest amount, carry everything out to the van and always say good bye and God Bless. Just love going there! Today it was for goat feed and goat wormer. They helped me figure out protein wise what feed to get as Diva didn't like the last feed that much. They also figured out how much worm medication I needed to give her and told me the best way to do it. Gave me some good advice on my chickens and also told me to post a flyer there for my goats milk as people were asking where they could buy some. After that we were off to the post office to mail some packages of soap before heading to Walmart. Fran needed some items from there and I picked up cat food, cat liter and some tags for my soap. We then headed for the dollar tree where I got plastic storage boxes for my soaps so I could keep each scent separate and Fran picked up a couple of things. We came home and I finished cleaning the house, cleaned off the deck, filled all the bird feeders and cleaned and filled the birdbaths. Have put back all the things the kittens have knocked over, straightened up my soap supply cabinet and answered some emails. Milked Ms Diva and she loves her new feed. Had to refill the chicken water things as they had knocked them over (or diva did). Everytime they see me they think I should feed them even if they just ate. All I am to them is a meal ticket! LOL I went out to see if my sunflowers were coming up and saw a squirrel digging and eating them! Nevermind that he was right below the feeder full of sunflower seeds or that his feeder had sunflower seeds, peanuts and corn! I do have some coming up in other areas that they didn't find. My lettuce is getting big since the rain so I am enjoying fresh salads and the iguana is loving the fresh lettuce too. I got a wonderful handwritten letter from Wendy who lives in Scotland. I just love handwritten notes and letters! Thank you Wendy and I will be writing to you tonight. Today if you had came down the lane to the homestead you would have had a very enjoyable day! Hope yours was as nice. I have lots of blessings to count today.... How about you?

Tee said...

Hey Peggy! I love the photo -makes me want to go for a walk :)

No wonder you named the goat Diva! She sounds like a handful - being picky about her food and knocking over water dishes. LOL.

Don't you love a productive day? ... and a handwritten letter to top it off! :)

God bless :)

If you really want sunflowers and the pesky squirrel prefers yours over his, you might try laying some chicken wire over the seeds, so he can't dig through it. I don't know if it will work but I bet 1" mesh would do the trick.
Great day, great descriptions.
