A Happy Blogger

Back in February when Lynn said, "mama, I think you would enjoy having a blog, you could post about your chickens and goats".  Imagine, me with a blog!!!  I know so little about computers...but here I am, loving it!  I was so embarrassed after my first post; I almost went back and deleted it...in fact, I did delete one whole post.  It embarrasses me to read what I write, so thank you for reading and coming back!  I have three people following my blog and I am so excited!!!  As Poppy would say, "imagine that"!  Thank you!!!

Through my blog I met Pam, the artist, who did this most special oil painting of "Big Boy".  My photography does not show the beauty of this painting.  The flash makes a glare and without the flash, too dark.  Pam captured "big boy's" expression, his coloring, and his size perfectly!  Thank you, Pam. 




Jen, thank you for the recipe for "Fresh Tomato Vinaigrette".  Last night was salad night; Poppy's night to work late.  I mixed the tomato vinaigrette.  It was delicious!!!  There was one small Basil plant growing in what used to be the herb garden so I had the fresh Basil needed for your recipe.  I now want to work on the herb garden.  Wonder if it's too late in the season to start a few herbs?

After all my complaining, here is what the little garden gave this morning...




The squash vines are blooming again!!




Thursday evening the sky was a pretty pink and blue.   Seems to always be something man made getting in the way of the beauty God gives us...



 As I put the last clothespin on the line I noticed a cloud in the background...Looks like a sprinkle of rain coming.



Thank you for looking at my blog.


Love,
Henny Penny

  2. Good Sunday morning, Henny! I love your new picture from your friend, Pam, isn't that a lovely gift! I wish I knew how to say I follow your blog, but I don't, I just check in and love it! Your garden seems to be getting a second wind and growing like crazy, and your tomatoes are beautiful! Now, your work really begins if you starting canning and stuff.

    I love to hang clothes on the line, they smell so good! Well, I am working today, so off I go. But, I am so glad you have this blog, it is a breath of fresh air! Have you had any rain on that tin roof yet? I bet it will be so sweet to sit out there and hear it. Love, Terry

    1. Good Sunday night, Terry! The painting is a very lovely gift! I don't know much about following blogs either. I'm just glad you stop by and glad I got to know you through my blog. I can't believe the garden is still growing, especially the squash, after seeing all those squash bugs. I didn't think I would be saying this, but we need a shower of rain!!! :) We had a just a sprinkle, not even enough to hear it hitting the tin roof. Hope you had a good day at work!

      Love,
      Henny

    That painting is so special, what a fantastic gift ! I have/had so many beautiful souls (animals) in my care throughout the years, I believe I could keep an artist employed for years !!
