Chickens, Plants and Pillow.

Johnny and Lucas' Chickens in their new home.
 cute little front door!!
 The nesting boxes this picture was taken during construction now they are filled with straw!
also under construction the top is all filled in with more plywood.

Farley doesn't seem to care about them.
I'm sure they are saying "Is she still trying to take our picture?"

 My indoor plants outside. I have been putting them out the last few summers. This is my Jade plant it is from my original Jade that I had for over 30 years!
This one was started from a leaf from that one.
 My Norway pine (I think) Betty and Reg gave it to us when we moved into the new house.
 Mother's Days basket flowers they got to overgrown for the basket so I cut them back and replanted them. They are looking good again.

Aloe from Texas several years ago!
The pillow is done and wrapped, part of a wedding gift for tomorrow.

A weeks worth of stuff!!

I was out on the deck with my iced coffee and a good book this afternoon for an hour or so. That's the life!!! Then Greg showed up so we had supper out there too.
Grilled burgers, cantaloupe, chips and cucumbers out of my garden!! Pretty good supper if I say so myself:)
 I did some chores for Jared's for a few days so had to take pictures of Sarah's pretty flowers.

 I want that hollyhock!!!!!!! The day lilies are almost done but It sure is pretty.
 This is my out of control flower bed.
 I have to thin it down this fall.
 Those long things hanging out are from the hen and chicks.

These spread so I am going to have to get rough with them or they will take over what little room I have.
 ornamental cabbage
 moss roses some came back from last year and I bought a pack so I hope I have alot next year. I love these peach colored ones.
This little cowpoke sits by the front door.
Squash, I think it was called 8 ball I've never had it before I hope it's good.
 Greg cut part of the buffalo pasture for hay.
 Then we had to chase them out so he could get it baled and so they wouldn't mess with the bales.
 It took awhile Greg honked and yelled a little then I used a high pitched voice and that seemed to work kindof like when your kids tried the high pitched fit to get their way, you wanted to just leave the house!!!!!!!!!!
 anyway there they go.
 now he can bale in peace
 Awhile ago Greg brought home a new gal! At first he didn't know if he liked her he was used to his old one even tho she had seen her better days. But I liked her she was cool and pretty clean, didn't cause any trouble, so I go with her alot here and there. here she is oh her name is Beverly!

and you thought it was a sister wife HAHA he bought her at a sale and the ladies name was Beverly so that's what we call her.
 I started on this the other day I wanted to print this picture and do you think I could find my printable, washable fabric. I think I cleaned my sewing area to good one day. So finally I thought I would print it on muslin and use the iron vinyl and it worked!! I put it on the wrong side to just in case it gets washed some day.

I have some scraps of fringe and some heart buttons. Now I just have to make the pillow to go in it.
well if I haven't bored you by now I better quit while I'm ahead.......jmf

Anniversary Card

I had bought a pack of scrapbook papers, and I needed a anniversary card.
I picked out a couple sheets, printed the picture out and ripped some fabric to hold it all together! The inside was a mess tho so don't have a picture of that just a small scrap of paper to write on and bad penmanship doesn't make a good combination!! It's the thought that counts right???

I hope so!!!  JMF I'm adding this post  create and share on Wed.

Pumpkin report, water, fabric, and Saint Julie!!

 Pumpkin blossoms

and there's the pumpkins!!!
 highway 81 going north of Madison. It's under water for 2 miles.
 This was coming home going south.

Only open to trucks and pickups no cars. It did wash off the pickup's running boards!!! We were on the way to Morris MN to a farm sale we left Tues and came  back on Wed. Greg didn't get what he went for. I left him at the sale and went back to town.
 There was a fabric store and had fun there!

 already made the dinos into a pillow case for a birthday present.
 I have an idea for these dolls that doesn't include making a doll. We'll see if I am still writing the blog when I get that done!!!

 Little kids hankies .75 cents couldn't pass them up.
Then I spent some time in their Pamida where I got this cross.
 Checking the markets for Greg on the kindle.

This house is north of Watertown. What a neat looking old house.
I would like a tour!!!!!!!!!!!
The mail lady brought me a box from Borders today I love it when she does that!! So I ordered the book The Little Book of Saints and low and behold look who's in there  Julie. wow Ive been called alot of thing but I don't recall saint being one of them, must be a different Julie!! Saint Julie lost the use of her legs at 16 but after 22 years she regained the use of her legs. She established the main center of the Sisters of Notre Dame in Belgium. She died in 1816.
only the corn loves this weather...............JMF
