First off, how lucky am I? Joanne from Cup on the Bus wove two beautiful teacloths (or tea towels, or dish towels -- call them what you like) and sent them to me!
They not only look great, they are super-soft and absorbent.
I love woven things like this. Thank you so much, Joanne!
It's been awhile since I've posted pig shots...
Luther is growing up to be a fine young man! The piglets are six months old now.
Olivia was hoping for a treat. I love the spots on her nose.
And Button has a button on her rump!
Cordelia and her mother Ophelia were enjoying some grass this afternoon.
But as the weather grows cooler, the pigs spend more time snoozing inside. Dahlia, Cordelia and Button decided it was worth coming out to see if I had treats!
Meanwhile, it was crazy here again today.
The cement truck came with the stuff for our box stalls in the lower barn.
He didn't want to take the truck down behind the barn, so they built a chute from upstairs
It's looking a bit like a construction site right now.
Meanwhile, work on the horse fencing continues...
The boys sure aren't very afraid of my beehives! Not that the girls are very active right now.
And have I mentioned that I love the panorama feature on my iPhone?
This is the duck pairing pond we had put in this past winter. It's looking good! Hopefully some ducks got lucky down there this year.
A rainbow over the soybean fields next door.
We are sad over the shootings in Ottawa today. I have walked by the War Memorial there many times and thought that it must be a bit of a tough, boring job doing guard duty there. I'm glad I wasn't there today.
I was a Naval reservist for many years and was never afraid to wear my uniform in public, but I would be now! It's sad to see this kind of thing happening in Canada. I don't want to see our Parliament Buildings becoming an armed fortress....
Have a peaceful evening!
