I don't know where five days have gone, but that's how long it's been since my last post. Maybe I've just been busy opening and closing curtains.
Angel garlands. I cut these from paper chicken feed sacks. After painting them, I added a coat of Mod Podge and hung them in the laundry room to dry. These will go on my table at the craft bazaar Friday. Once the Mod Podge dries, the angels will flatten out.
We are having unusually warm humid weather for the end of November. 71 degrees today and 92 percent humidity. Poppy and I actually heard it thunder once, and tomorrow there is a chance of thunderstorms.
It was a good day to move the hen and eight chicks out of the old doghouse and into a pen on the ground. Mama hen was restless and needed to scratch in the dirt.
Luckily, I caught them all...tricking them into small cage with cornbread crumbs, then moved them to a pen on the back of the old shed.
Ms. Hen was tickled to death to get a dust bath. Sitting four weeks in that doghouse was tiring.
The chicks thought maybe mama had gone mad. All that kicking and throwing dirt and dust everywhere.
The chicks are in the lot I built last summer from rabbit wire. I've covered one end with a tarp and hung the heat lamp above their straw bed...
making them a warm cozy corner. Once this front passes, we will have more cold weather.
What's wrong with me anyway! Sunday, Poppy and I went down home to Moore County. We were invited there by his sister Pat, to have Thanksgiving dinner at their house. All Poppy's family was invited, and most all of them came.
Here's the funny part...out of all the people and food and good times...the only picture I took was of the big bowl of mashed potatoes sitting on the stove. Pat said she peeled ten pounds of potatoes before going to church Sunday morning.
Both Poppy's sisters, Frances and Pat, are great cooks. Oh, and look at that dish of macaroni and cheese!
I simply don't have the personality to go round snapping pictures of everybody. It embarrasses me. So the mashed potatoes will have to tell all.
while we are on the subject of kitchen stuff...I ran in the Goodwill store one day last week and found this pretty butter dish. Wonder how long that little rose bud handle will last, around me!
Better get up from here. I will be around to visit and catch up.
