Saturday, July 26th… Looks like a nice day to build & sweat!!

Today, all we positively need to do is get to the bank before noon to make a deposit and the rest of the day is ours to put a bite into the barn and get those chickens in where they belong…… and today we are gonna do it. It think it’s starting to look like a building now since we are getting some of the bottom walls on and windows in it. I’m gonna have to bite the bullet and cut plywood to close in the top sections both up high, down low under the low roof and the gable ends of the low roof, then it will be tight and ready for the chickens. (when we finish the inside walls and put up the chicken wire inside.) We will also close in the outside “porch area” with chicken wire also, so they have a place to be outside and still be protected and in captivity so we don’t have to miss any more family get togethers because of the critters being out. As you recall, we missed an outing to Spring Garden a week ago because we could not get either the birds in before dark or the family to eat a little earlier so we could be home before dark to put them in.

I found a few pretty pictures of the beautiful flowers and fields we pass or see on the way to Vicki’s therapy and a couple of our place in the evening with ducks, chickens, turkey’s, bunnies and the deer. In fact, here is a perfect place to go to see the deer in action................

It’s really neat to live in a place where wildlife interact with you in a positive way and you can enjoy the ducks, chickens, turkeys, bunnies and wildlife along with all that. There are so many lovely sights to see around home and where ever you go in the car. We see things every day that interest us and trust they will interest you along with our tales of the farm. Sometimes it takes just one of you to email us and let us know that you look forward to the blog everyday and you’ve become hooked on our experiences and daily adventures and look forward to reading them and seeing the pictures we take, for us to have a renewed interest in getting out there and bringing those things to you. When we don’t hear anything, we wonder if what we are doing is interesting to the world or even just another person out there. Please email us and let us know what you like and how we are doing at giving you a little piece of the enjoyment and adventure we love living daily here in upstate New York.
