There are some weeks around here that I feel like I have
still worked a full week. This was one of them.
We had a good week with Jax and Paiton, but I am getting OLD when I can't cope with two little kids day after day. They are live wires, and I have trouble keeping up with them!
School starts for them on Monday.
We have been going out very early to the old place,
because I am locking up the chickens now.
So, I get up early, let them out, and then am going out late, about
7:40, to lock them up. Usually they are on the roost when I get there, or
just about ready to go in. When they see me with the net in my hand,
in they go.
I am seeing surprise lillies (lycoris squamigera) everywhere along the road.
Not seeing many animals along the road because of this...
this is not smoke, it's DUST. UGH. It's getting
everywhere in the car, and I can't keep the car clean.
Mr. Heron was fishing in the pond this morning, again.
And the mockingbird visited at the Ag Hall this afternoon.
There were also Monarch butterflies but every time I went out
to get their pictures... they were flitting around.
There WERE other butterflies working the flowers.
The late summer flowers are gorgeous still.
The gomphrena is almost hard to look at in the sun.
I also saw one of the biggest worms I have ever seen! I removed him to a garden area.
I'm glad the weekend is here!
