The sky is breathtaking and it is a holiday weekend. We celebrate independence day and I enjoyed a birthday. A chance to make the time we have more meaningful and focused. Young I was convinced it all was for me. The parade, the fireworks.
Actually in my household it was a big deal to chose your birthday dinner. It was all about you. I always asked for something off the grill.
Yesterday I had breakfast with a friend, and a late lunch with my son here. He visited with the chickens and observed my home improvements. What a difference! I opened a gift that came in the mail and planted some flowers.
I do keep busy with my small garden and the chickens. There is a pleasant routine to keep to. Painting the inside of the chicken’s corner of the barn will be done in the next two weeks with assist of T-man so they can move in there. The tractor then goes in the yard.
Back to the Y this week to swim. I can tell I need to stretch more with doing some work and the laps and dog paddle I do really makes a difference. It is important.
I actually looked at these photos in video form. Every corner of this little home offers me a new discovery. I have a great little workbench and wild daisies. Folks indulge me with chicken gifts which surround me in nature. In a month I will have beans and zucchini.
Along with the back deck and the stars at night, I have live music available most evenings to hear. Life is good here on the Gentlewoman’s Farm.
