But, until Mother Nature does a one eighty, here were are.
The daffodils are exploding all over the garden.
The chickens are small rototillers in the driveway garden, nicely turning over the soil for me. I will only have to add compost before planting some annuals. Then, I will have to FENCE the whole area to keep those chicky doodles out... and the turkey... and the deer.
Maybe I should just leave it this way. Let chicken nature take its course.
And then there's the Little Red Hen. She is still giving us attitude.
Some chickens, like people, are just born ornery.
She's a good "layer" though, so I guess I won't be makin' chicken soup anytime soon.
"But don't push your luck little lady. Leave Squeeky alone and stop attacking me when I come to feed you."
I'm trying to make curtains out of old bark cloth drape panels. I definitely have limits to my sewing abilities... but I keep trying.
I'm much better at baking.
My friend (Delta Dawn in Isleton) and my sister sent me home with some wonderful Meyer's lemons so...
"When life gives you lemons...", as the old saying goes, you make lemon chess pie.
I also love to squeeze Meyer lemon juice on vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt. Try it. It's delicious. It forms a tart layer of juice that freezes on the ice cream and then, when you stir it a little, the whole cup of ice cream takes on a delicious infusion of lemon. It's really quite good and... it's good "lemon karma".
Well... have a good weekend and if you want some music to go with your Friday, go to :
This is my good friend Kerry and her "Song for Friday". You will find a wonderful post about being Irish, some absolutely beautiful photos and a lovely and different rendition of an old familiar song.
Peace and happiness from the California Foothills.
