Saturday Morning Musings
The sunflowers are coming right along. I love Saturday
mornings. We finally might hit 100 tomorrow. We
have only done that once this year so far. Very strange
for us, I am not complaining mind you, it is just, I bought
tomatoes today. I don't ever buy tomatoes. Being sort of
a tomato snob, I always feel it is beneath me to buy those
things that might have come from a plant.
My bushes are loaded but we need some 100 degree weather
to get some ripe. I can't wait to eat tomatoes at every meal.
Yes, even at breakfast, in home made salsa. I love it on eggs.
I went out this morning and I had a dead chicken. It sort of shocked
me because it wasn't sick. It is one of the ones that hatched last year
from my little hens. It was part Mille Fluer and Silkie. The are rather
unique but really wild and insane. I think she must have fallen off the perch
and broke her neck. There was no sign of unlawful entry and she was
all intact. Like I said she was insane, if I made a mistake of leaving my
chair set up outside the fence, in the morning she would loose her mind
thinking it was a predator. I have ran out there so many times
thinking something was killing her.
I never do good when things die.
This Saturday we will be of course working in the garden. I made some
garden signs and I will post pictures of them when I get them in the ground.
My husband starts his vacation July 1st so the days will be much different.
We are hoping to get away for a bit, between kids jobs and all of the other
things that the poor man puts off all year. I always want him to spend the
time doing only what he wants to do. Since most of the time,
he is taking care of us.
It will be a nice start to July.
I hope your Saturday is a nice one.
