Happy Labor Day....

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather!!!
since it's gotten so cool,
the hens are laying again...
they kinda went on strike in all of that heat,
and their egg-production was nearly nill....

but now they're back-at-it
and we even have a broody little banty
that is setting on a clutch of 14 eggs
...such a good little mother she'll be!
Yesterday, Lee and Robin came over...
Lee and Peter worked the trees at the beginning of our driveway,
removing nuisance saplings and brush, as well as hazardous trees,...
they are also making a couple of new signs, painting antique farm equipment
that we'll have at the entrance of the driveway
and worked on many other manly things...
Robin & I worked in the shop a little,
since I had climbed into the loft-storage
and brought down all of the fall goodies...
the shop is looking great and there are still more new items
to be added for the show...
I am cranky though.
I've been working my little behind off day & night
being 47 yrs old,
can't tell if I'm suffering from PMS, Perimenopause
or, most likely
so for those that have been on the receiving end of my attitude,
please forgive...
I love you still and this too shall pass.
the pic below shows my make-do bird-bath....
it was going to hold flowers, but they died in the heat,
...so I emptied the basin and put in water.
a little respite for my feathered friends!
Hope you all have a sparkling & safe holiday!!!

Blessings from the Farm,

Woman are entitled to be cranky at times...All that we do. This too shall pass. Relax, Breathe and Enjoy the cooler weather.


PS Luv the birdbath and I bet your fine feathered friends do too.


Happy Labor Day Lori....I "labored" all day too!!! Not so cranky, but we are all entitled once in awhile!! Wish I could visit your shop and come to your show...one of these days!
