Well Hey there! So glad You decided to drop by and spend some time with Us here today on Our Front Porch. Such a treat to see You. How was Your weekend? Your Family doin good? I hope Your work week has gotten off to a real good start. Our weekend went by way to fast and seems like this week is going to be going the very same way…. fast. I feel kinda like I am runnin about 10 seconds behind where I am suppose to be and I am tryin to hurry to catch up all the time.
Saturday I got up early and rolled Biscuits, which reminds Me, I gotta get some more Yeast at the store when We go in for supplies this weekend. We made My Homemade Wild Blueberry Bread and some Butterfinger Cookies. Those Cookies turned out so good Yall. And We made My Momma’s Company Cake (yellow Cake with Chocolate Icing). Which I only had one small piece of since I have started my diet Yall. Since I had my surgery last May, I reckon I have gained a little weight. So now I get to have all the fun of dieting to get back down to where I am suppose to be. The Ranch Family is going to be in a couple of Christmas Parades this year so I wanna be able to fit into My Dress. 🙂 I wish it was as easy to take off weight as it is to put on weight.
Our sweet neighbor Jay stopped by the Ranch this weekend and Yall….. the Man can play anything with strings. And play it so, so good. I watched Him play My Mandolin the way I have always wanted to play it. I haven’t been around anyone with that much talent since My old Disc Jokey days at the Radio Stations when We had Singers and Bands stop in to promote whatever song They had out at the time. And Yall He fixed My Mandolin up for Me. She is sounding better than ever. I am gonna try to make time and practice about an hour a day. Hopefully I can make some better sounds come out of it too. Then maybe the dog wont yowl so loud. hahaha
Today we have a few chores to get done. I have a couple Carpets to finish cleaning and bring back into the House. Now that our nights around here have turned chilly the floors in this old Farm House get mighty cold. Seems like We are bringing them in a little earlier this year than We did last Winter. The Almanac is calling for a chance of Snow this Winter. We still have wood that needs cutting so Jake, with His big Axe, will be on that today. Gracie has the Chicken Coop to clean and We need to get a few bales of hay out in the Pig Wallow for Miss Tiny.
I get a kinda fun chore today. I found hidden away in a box some tiny snowflakes I had crocheted a long time ago for Our Christmas tree. I am gonna put them out in the sun and spray them with a little starch to get them ready for the trees this year.
Oh yes I wanted to tell Yall about Kisses. Well Yall know We have Waddles our little Rouen Hen that lives out by the Duck Pond in the little Courtyard by the Ranch House. Well We hated for Her to be so lonesome so along comes Quackers, another little Rouen Hen. In the last batch of eggs Mrs. Emma sent Us for the incubator was 3 Duck Eggs. So We got Kisses. Now all this time I thought Kisses was another Rouen Hen well after some growing and some molting guess what… Kisses is a Rouen Drake. His little green head has started showing. I am so tickled. Now hopefully this Spring We wont have to incubate Duck Eggs but have Our own Home Grown Baby Ducks. Little Everyday Blessings Yall.
I hope You find many Everyday Blessings at Your House. Thanks so much for stopping in and letting Us be part of Your Life. Yall come back and see Us again real soon and please tell the Family We said Hey! ~Love from the Ranch~
