Moving Right Along

Today is Friday, July 30, 2010. WOW! It has been so hot and humid here. The afternoon showers roll in and the humidity soars. I don't remember it being this hot last summer, maybe it was and it is age that is making it worse.

These last couple of weeks have just zipped by. Have been busy making and finishing projects. My mind has just been racing with new ideas, things are laid out and ready to go and a few that are all but finished, have to wait on that dry time. I ran out of sealer, something that I should have been able to pick-up at Wal-Mart, but no, they no longer carry it, so now I have to order it on line and wait for it. Mama said that she read in the paper that we are getting a TJ Maxx and another store. So living for a craft store to land in Lake City! That would be so sweet! Not holding my breath though.

The chickens are getting so big, no eggs as of yet. They are 18 weeks now, so we have about 6 very long more weeks before we can even expect to have eggs. The rooster is so wild to watch. He is so shiny compared to the chickens, learned that the guys have oil glands to make them pretty. He is doing this thing with his head where he rocks it from side to side, so funny to watch. I have also learned that chickens do not eat worms like you see in the cartoons. The last couple of worms that have crossed the chickens path, have survived. The chickens check it out, but move on. They do like grass hoppers, they will chase them across the yard.

Today is go to town day, so it will be a busy hot day. The boys will be happy, I won't need them to lift anything, stocked up last week at the feed store. So they can stay home and do whatever it is that they do. Keep your fingers crossed that I get my order today so that I can get things finished up this weekend.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~


  1. I've missed you. Must be quite a show to see those chickens chasing grasshoppers across the the yard. Animals are too funny.

  2. Glad you are surviving the heat. It's been crazy hot!

    Must be fun watching the chickens grow. The rooster sounds funny. One day I'll have some land...

    Hope your trip to town goes smoothly!

  3. Oooooo is your Blessed Be a pin??? I have an addiction for pins, lol. I love it though no matter what it is and I can't wait to see what else you are up to lately.

    Ackkkkk on Walmart, I have gotten so I hate going there and I don't unless I absolutely have to, I swear they carry hardly anything anymore. Okay, enough ranting sorry. I so want an AC Moore here but still nothing we have Michaels and Hobby Lobby, I wouldn't survive without a craft store, lol.

    Nice to see someone is creating in this heat it has really put me in I don't want to mode, I can't remember a Summer this hot!!

    It seems the male species get all of the glitz in the animal kingdom strange isn't it.

    Hope you have a great weekend, stay in the pool and keep cool!!!


  4. Hi Dede! Sorry I haven't been around much lately. School is so much more time consuming than I could have imagined. Wanted to stop by and say hello.
    Your Blessed Be pin is great!
    We don't have the heat here in Washington, today in fact is damp, drizzly and rather miserable. Crazy weather! Hang in there sister - cooler weather is just a couple months away for you!
    So hello - and I'll be seeing you more often hopefully! Take care, Jeannine

  5. I wish I had chickens... just love to watch them scatter around.... tried to mail your package this morning yet it seemed I had the wrong address so I will get it out on Monday...
    hope you have a great weekend Dede


It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
