I finished my paintings, and while waiting for them to dry
I took a little more advantage of the beautiful day we had here yesterday…
I donned my shorts, tank top & flip flops,
grabbed by hook, wool, scissors and frame and set up for a little hook-y plain'!
|i need a new chair ~ but hey, it works...|
behind where i was sitting you can see our barn & coops…below -
they were called the chicken coops at one time,
~ but they have housed everything in between ~
from ducks, to peacocks, to chickens…
...then baby opossums and now
|my little spot of heaven|
...for me, simple is best, so I just pile wools in a basket…
then I pick from there what to hook with ~ nothing is ever really 'planned'
and somehow things always seem to come out ok ~
the grass has gotten SO green ~
and I love how it looks against this purple wool:
...while working out here in my 'studio'
lot of visitors and neighbors come by for a spell ~
our roosters usually come to investigate my wool-worms dropped to the ground while hooking…
but never out-stay their visit.
I usually get a shout-out from Pinocchio from across the way ~
he lets me know of his approval or disapproval of my color choices...
|hello big boy!|
and if Nocchi is volunteering criticisms,
...then Daisy chimes-in too ~
Of course, I am EASILY distracted by our new family of fur-buckets…
who now reside in the opossum-hut
(a.k.a. one of the chicken coops)
this coop is SNAKE-proof.
so I know they are safe and sound while they grow, play and enjoy the outdoors ~
here they are:
|"Boogie Sugar-Britches" (a.k.a. 'Shug')|
Shug is SOOOOooooo tiny ~
she weighs an ounce I swear and is mostly fluff…
and here are my handsome boyfriends ~
|"Mickey" (l) and "Tiggy" (r)|
their innocent eyes have cleared up and are turning colors now ~
...I'm hoping they will all have Minew's color ~
a haunting gold/green…
|'Shug' beating up her big brother 'Mickey'|
~ Minew still favors little 'Tiggy'
and he really milks it! (pun intended)
these two are inseparable.
Speaking of milking it, they are almost weaned now,
but they ambush Momma whenever they get a chance ~
...Minew is just over a year old too, so she's a small kitty-girl
with a delicate frame ~ but don't get me wrong, she is a certified snake killer!!
she killed a 4 foot black snake when we first spotted her here on our property ~
you GO girl!
|head-butting is a favorite past time|
they have all wriggled their way into our hearts ~
ESPECIALLY Peter's huge heart ~
...at the end of a long day of work, you will find him in there with them,
each one getting his or her share of his love ~
((wonderful medicine for the blood-pressure))
and I almost missed this photo (below) while going through them all:
thought you'd get a chuckle from it!
Hoping you all have a wonderful day my friends,
...get outside and enjoy the weather & nature…
oh, and hug a kitten if you can :)
* Blessed be *
