Ramblings & Thanks

The weather is clear but cold with a mild breeze blowing outside the homestead today. I had company today as I worked on my blog side bar, cut out a bunny & did some tweaking to the old barn sink. I added some sheep that I had on top of the sewing machine cabinet to the barn sink. They are peeking out from the flowers in the corner. As I mentioned I had company today meaning Sam who is feeling under the weather & stayed home from school today. He will be going to the doctor tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for your support & well wishes on my creations selling at the shop. As far as I know nothing has sold yet but the shop keeper told me he was going to display my #10 doll Andy in the jointed doll collection in a child's rocking chair he has in the front window of the shop. Her legs & bonnet were made out of an old feather ticking pillow case I got at my Pap & Grams home.

I tried a new recipe for cinnamon rolls that Katy shared on her blog The Country Blossom. They are yummy.

The baby chicks are sleeping in the brooder as I chat with you all at this time. They can actually fly to the top of the brooder & perch on the rim of the storage container when the lid is off. I was shocked when I saw the first one fly up & perch. Or should I say roost? Well you can say I have learned not to leave the lid off of the brooder. They seem to be becoming pets at this time. I read in that How To Raise Chickens book not to name them but they all seem to have names at this time. Not sure what the kids will do if the two brown baby chicks names do not match their sex since they could be roosters or hens. There may be some name changing later. Time will tell. As I close & say good evening I wish you all a fine evening.

Blessings Til Next Time!
