Woke a little earlier today as I'm getting in the habit of going to bed earlier for d-in-love's new job start next week.( g-son will be here at 6:45 each morning)
G-son came shortly after we got up today. I did morning chores and had breakfast with hubbie and g-son before heading off to Asheville for my OB Dr.'s annual check-up.
I passed with flying colors and he was happy with all my exams. I celebrated by going to Wendy's and having one of their new "chicken,almond,berry salads" yum yum !!
I also made stops at the Biltmore House gatehouse for more wassail mix and to K-mart for some on sale plants and pine shavings to go in my chick houses.
D-in-love picked up g-son at noon to go to the lake for the afternoon so hubbie headed out to his annual physical appointment before I got home.
He passed with flying colors also and got a very pleasant surprise in his blood pressure reading. He has been drinking 2 oz. of Pom wonderful juice since February when the doc told him he would have to lower his blood pressure or go on pills. Since then we also have been eating better and he has lost 9 lbs. which I'm sure helped lower the pressure. In February the reading was 145/93, today the reading was 128/84 wow, way to go hubbie, no pills !!!
When I got home I spent the cloudy afternoon working in the yard, got all my new plants planted.
And then cleaned out and switched chicks around to make room for another setting Silkie.
Have I mentioned how I love baby chicks ??!!
While I was moving some potted plants around I noticed this little Carolina Wren buzzing around frantically when I attempted to move one of my ferns to water it . Luckily I saw why she was so upset before I poured water on it.
As I planted some new flowers I noticed these beauties that are already blooming around the yard.
This is an Oak Leaf Hydrangea .
The lilies are showing their colors also.
These are Stella dora's which will bloom all season.
These are a really pretty lily but unfortunately they only bloom for a short while.
This guy looked like he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar as I rounded the corner and caught him getting ready to raid this feeder.
Today has been a good day all around and I am prayerfully thankful tonight for all the gracious blessings from my Heavenly Father.
Good Night and God Bless.
