I have been here 11 days. I am all unpacked and everything is out. Pictures are all hung and my chicken figurines are everywhere. Its home. Its cozy, handy and I don't put on some many miles......my farm house was way too large for just me! My dau Jess and her husband Dave are enjoying the big house and their 2 large dogs have room to roam. Now they are the land owners and I have a smaller yard to take care of, it all works.
I have been to concerts, plays.......and for the first time since I had to stop working I have a calendar planner! Concerts, birthdays, special events to mark down.........I carry it with me! I have a camera bag with a long shoulder strap......my verison of a "man purse". Kleenex, check book, coin purse, cell phone, covered plastic cup to spit in Remember I can't swallow my salvia--- easy on the farm Spit anywhere - Now at a concert one must have a better solution! I was wearing cargo pants with lots of pockets, all that stuff in there, the pants got heavy!
My garden shed, now has two south windows. Its housing 3 pair of pigeons, 4 Silkie hens and Nessie's pet rabbit. Oh 2 more pair of pigeons are coming in the mail. Pigeons like sheep you can't have just a few! They are such beauties. My four pair Of Old German Owls will have young is all most every color pattern!
Oh there is a fifth pair ---American Fantails. I used to raise a lot of these. So I got a pair Powder Blue check cock and a Lavender hen They will produce pastel colors
Winter is trying to start but so far.....40 degree days prevail I still have to break down 40 or so cardboard boxes stored in the garage, so they can be put on the curb. At a late rummage sale I got a solid old holding table---8 foot long It will become tool bench for the garage. I need to get it organized so I can find everything.
In my spare time I am browsing through old nursery catalogues getting ideas. I am putting up my white fence from the farm, incorporating a walk through garden arbor.....with climbing arctic kiwi yep hardy into zone 3
I found yellow shrub roses just like my Grandma used to have I will plant some on the back of the lot...I can see them when I am outisde and standing at the kitchen sink window..then all the shrubs I am bringing in from the farm.........making my own garden of eden.........cooing pigoens...........flowers/shrubs blooming everywhere
You get the idea
And just like that, it's almost over
