Well Hey Yall! Good to have You visiting with Us on Our Front Porch today. Always a treat to have You drop in and spend some time with Us here at the Ranch. We have been busy, busy bees these last few weeks, so much so I’ve had to stop a few times and ask myself what I was doing. 🙂 Hope all of Yall are doing great. Hope Your Family is doing great too.
We have been working on a lot of projects at the Ranch. I can hardly keep up with the weeds in the Garden, but knock on wood the Pumpkin Patch is doing real good. We are getting ready to do some work in Our little Pecan Grove, getting ready for the fall harvest of this year’s nuts. I can already smell the pecan pies We will be making. Some for Us and some to sell. Our little chicks We hatched out in the Chicken Coop are just starting to lay so We will have plenty of Eggs coming up for all Our Holiday Baking. We just got thru working on the Briar Patch so hopefully next years harvest of blackberries will be big and delicious.
The Courtyard at the Ranch House is coming along nicely. We built a small patio and added some seating so Yall can enjoy the view of the Ducks at the Duck Pond when You visit. The Morning Glory and Honey Suckle Vines are big and pretty. We added another Gardenia Bush By the new Patio. They are one of My favorites. Now all that’s left to do is to finish the Sweethearts Bridge and change out the pump for the waterfall in the Duck Pond.
Our next big project will be painting the Ranch House. We have a couple of small repairs to do, add the new lattice to the underpinning and then the fun begins. I was hoping to have it ready to start painting as soon as Dog Days ends. For all of Our City Friends that may not know, The Dog Days of Summer are the hottest temperatures of the year. Lasting from the last week of July thru all of August and the first week of September. My Grandma use to say they ended on Labor Day. I’m just real happy they end.
Just as soon as the outside projects end it will be time to turn Our attention to the inside of the Ranch House itself. As Autumn nears I already have the preparations for Our Holiday Season beginning to take form in My head. Lots of Friends, Food and Fun is just waiting around the corner. This is going to be a fun time for the Ranch Family. Always something new.
We hope all of Our Front Porch Friends are doing good. Thanks for all of You who write in, many of Yall have become such good Friends to the Ranch Family. Yall come back and visit Us again real soon on Our Front Porch and tell the Family We said Hey!
~Love from the Ranch~
