A Dozen Ducklings & Antique Show
Over the weekend the ducklings hatched. There were 15 eggs and 12 hatched. The are so tiny and fuzzy. Mama duck has been at the Homestead for seven years now. She is very protective of her flock too. I was placing them in some water for there first swim and she grabbed hold of my arm and pinched the skin twice. I now have two pinch marks. She is getting better now when the chick food is given to her little flock. I went to a church yard sale. I found the doll rocker & wood recipe box. It was near the end of the yard sale so everthing was half off. Some times it pays to go late. Went for a drive and came across some streets blocked off for an antiques at the square in a small town. I wish I would have had my camara with me but it was at the Homestead. There were so many great primitive antiques there. This antique show was a true antique show too. There were no vendors with pencils socks and such like I have been to lately. I will be looking for it next year. I got this little old childs chalk board that has a section that rolls. There is alot of learning information on the roll from multiplecation to wild animals. I put it in the dinning room. The rose bush my grandaughter & her father my son gave me last year for my birthday bloomed. As of now there are four blooms. I got my peach seeds planted. If they grow I will be looking for a spot for that small orchard every country girl should have. Now I need to get busy and catch up on all of you so blessings til next time.
