ARRIVAL OF THE SILKIES

This morning brought sunshine instead of the promised rain. After morning chores I iced cakes until after lunch.
#1 son and g-son came in to meet son's nurse while we ate lunch.
After the nurse left I found out just how little this next generation appreciates anything we do for them. Son left in a huff and I am still stinging tonight from his angry words. I know he is having a hard time with his injury but that cannot continue being an excuse for the unappreciative way I get treated. My tank is full to overflowing right now.
I stayed busy all afternoon making aprons..
These 2 aprons below are 2 of my favorites this time.I found a pair of over-all shorts and cut them apart to make these 2 aprons, cute.
After I finished sewing these I went over to a neighbors house to get some Silkie hens. He had told me to come and get some a couple weeks ago and his wife ordered some Avon so I took her Avon over and came back with 3 white Silkies.These are so nice they are really tame chickens and set on eggs very well and are great mothers. That's what I wanted them for ,next spring I will let them set on my laying hens eggs to get more egg layers.
After I got them settled down in their new home and away from the larger chickens for the time being I took the dogs on a long walk today. It was cloudy and looked like rain any minute but it never came.
On a lighter note here are some beautiful spirit lifting pictures.
Beautiful blooms still abound this mid-October evening.


The sun sets giving a golden glow to the clouds and a promise from God of happy days to come.
Good Night and God Bless.

My heart goes out to you and the discontent between you and #1 son. I know the feeling. Know that you are not alone.
Love your Silkie girls! And the pics are great of the outdoors.

Take care and God Bless.

Oh, I love your beautiful chicken. Recovering active people of all ages can have some really bad moods. I know that he really does appreciate what you have done for him...he just hates not being able to do everything for himself. Things will get better.

When my husband had surgery there were times when I would just go to the bathroom and have a good cry. I knew that he was simply frustrated, but it's hard not to take it personally.

Hi Carolina, am sorry about your endearment with your son. I am the oldest girl and i do that also with my Mom, hehe. But we love our mothers. I love your photos here especially the chicken, we don't have that kind here. They look so beautiful but looking fierce.

Hi Marilyn, Somehow I missed this post... I got behind this week with being so busy myself.

I can understand both yours and son's frustrations... He has gone through alot---and so have you... I'm sure the angry words were soon forgiven --and you have to know that they DO appreciate all that you and hubby do for them.

Hugs,
Betsy
