Pretty good shot of chicken butt...if I do say so myself....lol
Late getting here. Spent a big chunk of the day with my friend at Garden Ridge...she bought a beautiful wind chime and some other stuff. I bought an Elmore Leonard book. I know, I know. She kept encouraging me to buy, buy, buy. But nothing excited me enough to get it. So...except the book. I LOVE Elmore Leonard and have read a great number of his books. He's a prolific writer and my hero.
It was 82 degrees today! And windy. We are expecting thunderstorms tomorrow.but right now, after midnight, it is 75 degrees. Crazy. I actually had to turn on the air conditioning today It was really hot and stuffy in here. I only set it at 76 degrees, but still...I always try to wait til the last unbearable minute before turning that sucker on...
Tomorrow I am going to the recovery house and do some step work with a new sponsling. And before that am meeting an old sponsling for an early lunch get together. THEN...I am taking a couple of days off.
I am watching trees leaf out and plants grow like they are on speeded up video. It's nuts, I tell you. When I got home today from shopping, the clematis was 2 inches taller than when I left. AND the weeping fruitless mulberry sprouted leaves. I LOVE spring. It's magickal.
The chickies and kitties are growing like weeds. The local farm pastures are full of newborn calves.
I am saddened by the story out of West Virginia and the loss of lives in that coal mine. We have a rich history of mines in this area and the town of Mt. Olive has a miners cemetery, where the bones of Mother Jones are interred. There was actually a bloody massacre at a town called Virden here, back when they were trying to unionize the mines. Please say a small prayer for the families and their devastating losses...
All the doggies are in, so I guess I can go to bed now. It's almost 1 AM and this old hen is tired.
