Two Give Away's
I wanted to tell you about two wonderful ladies that I know and
they are having give aways on their blogs. The reason I am doing
this you see I want to win them. So I am shamelessly promoting them
in hopes that I might win. They are both so close to hitting 100 followers
that they need some more people to come and visit them. The first lady
is Camp and Cottage Living. I love all of the goodies she is giving away
and I think you would enjoy reading about her life in a log cabin on Lake
The next give away is another wonderful lady I have had the joy of making
friends with and this is Sassafras and Winterberry. Courtney is giving away
yarns, lovely hand dyed yarns and some wool so you can see why I would love
to win this one too. But I would like you to win so I will be happy for you too.
I just wanted to get the word out in case you haven't ever met these lovely ladies
who both always brighten up my day.
See this hen in this picture?
She has been sick off and on all summer and now into the fall.
She gets better then she gets sick and I go through all of the
antibiotics and letting her out in the yard by herself. This
weekend I just pretty much thought when I went out this morning
she would be dead.
She wasn't, she was looking around like she might be interested in life.
So the interesting thing I noticed is her pale face isn't pale anymore.
She had color in her face and her comb looked red and healthy again.
I came in the house and got bread because she loves, loves bread.
She ate and ate. Which surprised me. I made apple pies today and took
her apple cores which she ate happily.
I had given the other hens the same thing I had given the sick ones,
but I did make another trip in the house and got some more bread
to see if it was a fluke and she about bit off the hand that fed her.
The other hens were yelling about the unfair treatment. My thought
was I bet I have hens standing around in the morning pretending to
feel pale and under the weather.
Don't underestimate hens. They can be very tricky.
It is a hot day today. But it is still nice because of the nice
breeze. The weatherman has promised fall by the end of next week.
We get a cold mass from Canada. Yay, So Kim and Julia, we are
getting your cold air so maybe it will warm up for you. :)
I went ahead and made two apple pies today. It is so nice to smell
the apples and cinnamon baking. A person who shall remain nameless
called another person who will remain nameless a "hog," because she
had the apple pie I made yesterday with coffee when she came in from
church. I was shocked.
I told the first unnamed person, I would make more so I made two
I can't have fights over the apple pie now can I ?
I hope you have a nice week, can you believe it is almost Halloween?
I can't, it is flying by on a broom. :)
