I thought about taking a nap in the hammock yesterday,
but decided instead to sit in the shade of the pear tree behind the house and stitch on T's quilt.
Even though I was tired (what else is new?) it was a good decision.
I spent a perfectly lovely (and quiet!) 2 hours out there
with some of my favorite things in the world
(minus the people - but then, there wouldn't have been quiet...).
I probably would have accomplished more quilting if I'd stayed inside though,
'cause I kept stopping to enjoy my surroundings.
Sometimes, looking around, I almost got teary at the thought of living here.
I love this place. These critters.
(of course, I've gotten teary at lots of stuff lately, so maybe I'm just hormonal...)
|Jack hasn't yet completely captured my heart, but he's working on it.|
|chickens are so funny!|
|Lola & Jack liked watching the chickens, too|
|All that time I spent loving on baby chicks, and this girl is the only one who will let me hold her now.|
I think maybe she's a little touched in the head. She don't seem real bright. But I love her anyways.
|And this girl. She is the best dog ever.|
|This is Strawberry.|
When I feed them,
she jumps up to steal from the container.
Every. single. time.
With the exception of the first and last picture, all pictures were taken from my chair.
So you can see how this was such a perfectly pleasant afternoon
(It's too bad I can't do it justice with the camera...)
