And catching fireflies were big events!!
We've also spent time getting ready for our county fair. .
which is here next week!
Baking. .electrical projects. .woodworking. .
and these. .
We decided that initially a hawk was picking one off every day. .
And then it was raccoon issues!
We have been keeping them in the cages even during the day again until the past few days.
But still. .
we only have two Rhode Island Reds, one hen that we don't even know the variety of. .
we just call her "road runner chicken" because she is so stinkin fast!!
And our two new Silver barred rocks in the photo above. .
One of which just layed her first little egg last week!
We got a chirping box from the US postal service. .
Full of tiny chicks!! Devin and I shopped online and bought some black Australorps, Austra Whites, and Gold laced Wyandotte chicks. .These will take up residence with the other 5 girls in the coop.
Last weekend I had FIVE days off from paid working. .
And we enjoyed a few spectacular firework shows. .
And did lots of cleaning and yard work!
Tristan and I landscaped the new flower bed on the north side of the house around the addition. .
So the flowers are starting to look hot and bothered!!
And frankly, so is the gardener!!
I did a ton of mulching last weekend with some wood chips given to us. .
Since they were from the country, the likelihood that they had herbicides was really low. .
and it made my memory garden look nice and fresh. .
and will help enhance and cool the soil!!
Though I was anything but enhanced OR cooled by the time I was done throwing it down!!
Such is the life though!!
That's it for us. .Thanks for stopping by!
Have a super week!!
