Yesterday I took Noah and went in to visit my grandma "Nana" and take her to lunch. My sister in law Glenda met us over there too. Nana has recently moved into a new assisted living home, and she is getting settled in. We arrived and visited with her in her room for a bit before going out to lunch. Noah had brought a little tin lunch pail with his trains inside to play with. And without hesitation, my Nana got down on the floor to play with him! Nana will be 98 years young on August 1st. She has been blessed with good health and longevity! In fact her entire family has been. Her big brother, my great Uncle Joe, will be 100 this November! And their little sister, will be 96 in November!!! Their parents, my great grandma and grandpa, lived into their late nineties, and I remember them well. Here is my much loved "Nana" on the floor playing with Noah. Prepare yourself to smile.
When we got home, the giant shrub removal was complete, and this is what the side of our garage looks like now.
Good news, my Rhode Island Reds are laying again! Snacker still is not. But she is getting healthier every day. Since we have put the 6 baby hens in the coop, Snacker has stopped going up to her roost at night, and is staying down on the hay underneath the light with the babies. I asked my go to gal at the feed store why this is, and she says she is "mothering" them!
I will keep you posted. Ham is the larger of the babies. The black and white one. She/or he, is Light Brahma. With beautiful feathers on her/his feet, that remind me of ornamental feathered moccasins. Here are the little "B's" all tucked in for the night in their modified playhouse/coop.
It is RAINING here! Well, drizzle really. But wet! My garden is singing, I can hear it from here!!!
See you soon!
