Sadly when I went out to let the hens out I found my huge blue orphington rooster dead in the house.
Never again will I be awaken by the crowing of this beautiful guy.
After breakfast,exercise and a walk in the nice sunny weather I baked cakes. 32 layers , 3 pound and 2 wine cakes.
When these were finished g-son and I read books and played games for awhile until his dad came after him.
I went outside and pulled weeds this evening from my patios and fed them to the chickens. It was 87 degrees earlier today but the cloud cover this afternoon dropped the temperature to a nice 78.
This is not a bad mid-August forecast for the next 7 days !!
I iced cakes and did paperwork tonight getting things done early because I am feeling my early morning more and more as the evening goes on.
In my decade photo search I found this pic of my mother ( top with big buttons on her dress) and her sister Carol ( I think) marked August 21,1952.
Funny how some things just stick in your memory.
Grateful to God tonight for the blessings He gave me today and praying for His guidance tomorrow.
Good Night and God Bless.
