Do you hit those days?
When you just have NO EARTH of an idea what to write about?
I have lots of ideas in my head... Keith and I have come to a huge decision here lately, but we are not ready to talk about it yet, and no, it is not moving from our little paradise, or anything so radical.
We just want to keep the lid on it for a while and let it percolate.
We also made a day trip on the spur of the moment yesterday, and I was able to keep up with Keith, though I did tire out easily. I'll devote a whole blog post to that one.
I'm a little tired this morning, and realize I am not bouncing back from illness as I used to to... so will need to take that into consideration in the future.
So maybe we'll just use up some pictures today for the post!
This is what ducks do to a water fortex. They have to be cleaned frequently... however... the chickens have access to their clean waterers inside, too. And guess what? This stuff SMELLS.
I keep a couple of these outside for the ducks, as well as their pool and a deep fortex in the pasture. I know... I overdo it.
They are STILL AT IT.
My gosh, how long can this go on???
These are the balsam plants I almost drowned at the beginning of summer. Somehow, they resurrected themselves, and I am so glad to see they have formed seed pods. My goal is to keep this balsam going for many years to come.
That's basil in the tub next to it, and we hardly used it at all. I'll grow basil again, but as an ornamental only.
The ducks enjoy life, rain or shine. We should be more like the ducks.
What would we do without this loyal and beautiful girl?
I don't like to think about it.
Be a duck, Mary Ann. Think in the now.
Oscar's tree had some visitors. You see the plants growing high under the branches on the right?
It is where we buried Oscar on August 18, about six years ago. The plants over his grave have always grown up higher than the others around them, and I cut around it. This will always be his tree.
Keith will get me for showing this picture, but this little girl is really devoted to him... she is sleeping by his leg, where she likes to. The fan is blowing on them, and she is very, very happy.
This is a planting I saw yesterday when Keith took me to brunch. I am going to try to emulate it on a smaller scale next year, isn't it lovely?
That's it for my disjointed post today! I'm going to head outdoors and get the chores done, so we can be ready to go to the game.
