I admit we are just about in a state of nervous exhaustion here.
Now that the world knows I forgot Illinois existed.... I think we
are ready to jump off the face of the earth in the morning and head for Iowa.
The van was serviced and cleaned out... and is ready to be on the road.
I have it partially packed, but of course, I am second guessing what I am taking, so
there may be changes early in the morning.
No wild-bird-feeding while I am gone... but Keith is going to keep the
pots and the straw bale garden watered. We do have rain back in the picture, but it
is a week out.
Last minute pictures of the garden. I transplanted flowers from the old house
last summer, I didn't realize I transplanted ditch lilies.
The yellow asclepias are blooming nicely, and I am thinking the orange did not make it.
Yes, it's time to do something about this bed, but it can wait five more days.
Jester does not have a care in the world.
I'm am praying he travels well.
All buckets are now upside down, so we don't find anything else like this.
We are still working on mouse eradication, and the pest man will be
here sometime in the next two days. I HATE KILLING.
Keith has some big changes coming in the next few weeks for his medications... and it really does mean we need to get the mouse problem under control.
Even if it means no feeding birds.
We walked early this morning... but this bathing beauty was already in the pasture pond.
And this beautiful bird posed for me down the road.
I am trying to find out what the white things are by it's eyes.
They were on both sides. They almost look like fly eggs.
I want to ask everyone to say a little prayer for Deb, me, Jester and Stella Rose as we
set out tomorrow for the Blogville Awesome Retreat.
I am going to try to post from Indiana... but if I can't for some reason,
I'll post on Facebook and Instagram as Mary Ann Yoder (might be Ksredhead1950 on Instagram).
Hope to show you all what a great time we are having!
