Out feeding the animals early yesterday I spotted the rake that was left leaning against a tree.
When the chickens are walking on black wet ground, it bothers me. It looks cold and uncomfortable...so I raked two more loads of leaves and dumped them inside the lot. The hens find bits of grass and moss and other stuff mixed in the leaves.
Wasn't long before the inside of the lot was covered in leaves too...
Anyhow, after lunch, Poppy got comfortable in his raggedy old chair and turned the TV channel to "Gun Smoke".
By the way, do you remember back when we first found Smokey. Back when someone threw him out on the dirt road. He was just a little kitten. Remember how Poppy put his foot firmly down and said, "no more cats in the house". "He can stay here but he has to be an outside cat". Well, does this look like a kitty who is afraid to come inside? a kitty who remembers Poppy's words of warning?
So, the living room being occupied with sleeping folk, I decided to spend the afternoon in my very own teeny tiny mouse house, the sewing room...
I spent the afternoon cutting out another apron, an old fashioned bonnet, and a couple of plastic bag holders. Now I'm ready to sit down at the sewing machine.
There is always a kitty close by. Glad he noticed the sun shining through the window and decided to leave my fabric and patterns alone.
Better go. I've got lots to do this morning...a package to mail, prescriptions to pick up in Henderson, and a few groceries to buy. So, I hope to be back here soon.
