We ran a couple of errands, picked up lunch for the kids and delivered it to the farm today. The kids were their usual energetic selves, Audrey was cuddling Gabriel who just got up from a nap and was his usual cute self.

Can’t believe how those cute little chicks have grown! The kids were digging worms for them and showing us how they all run after the worms when tossed in the pen. One of the red hens jumped up and grabbed a worm right out of Joshua’s hand before he had a chance to toss it on the ground. He looked startled and we all had a chuckle. The old dog kennel is being put to good use and there are plans afoot to greatly increase the fenced area for the chickens.

The grass is even taller at the farm than it is here but it’s still too wet to mow. Our mowers will be here next week to renew the battle of the grass. I think Audrey needs to let the horses into the yard for awhile and let them graze the grass down to a manageable height. The kids could keep a watch on them so they don’t get into anything they shouldn’t. I wonder what the horses will think about the chickens…

It was a good trip to town and the farm and back home but we are both tired and needed a nap this afternoon. That was the most outing that Brad has had since his surgery. He’s doing really well with PT and it will be great when he doesn’t need the sling anymore.

I’m still working on the socks and baby blanket. I’m about half-way to where I start increasing for the gussets on the socks now. I’m not sure how it’s going to work doing the heel caps and flaps with two socks on the same needle. Guess I’ll figure that out when I get there!

Enjoy your weekend!

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
