This will be a picture-heavy post, I'm warning everyone!
I took a lot of pictures these last few days of good weather. As I type this at 2:48, it is 56 degrees out! There is a little wind, so I put a jacket on to go out, but, my goodness!
Yesterday I drove to Fort Leavenworth to get my throat checked for strep, since little Jax, our grandson, was diagnosed last Monday. I didn't have strep, but my throat is raw, and I am trying to carry on.
I saw this going on as I went "the back way" to the post.
The farmers around here are taking advantage of the drought conditions to re-do their ponds. We have seen scores of ponds now cleaned out and good silt used on their dams, etc..
Here's a barn that Keith and I love. It has a lovely house with it, but the house actually sits on a very rocky outcropping/cliff, and worries us every time we see it! Biggify to see three little donkeys there.
At home, the Queen of the Yard was surveying her domain. Wait until you see what Keith has started on this deck.
Abby and I went for a walk in the pasture with some of the birds.
Mama, HELP me!!!!
Sometimes Jackson decides he doesn't want puggies around his flock.
As you see, we had a big train of birds behind me. Abby's off to the left, wondering if she should come down. (She did)
Here's where the fox and probably the skunk are coming through in the wild area where the three properties meet.
Here's a better look: that's Troy's dam just past our fence, and you can see how thick the thicket has become. We used to be able to get our walk gate open in the corner, but it is now overgrown.
At that point, Abby decided that discretion was the better part of valor, and put me in between herself and Jackson, who was still with us.
Don't worry, I did NOT let them get her, and she goes in the pasture and amongst the birds all the time. She has always been trustworthy with them. Lilly was laying at the gate waiting for us... I can't trust her until the birds are locked up for the night.
And the last picture...
Quite the corner, huh? Books that I am reading, magazines, ditto... my purse, my tennies... sunflower seeds, and a stash of valentine heart candy. Pitiful!
I made an attempt to straighten it up today!
