In addition to our two dead chicks, we have one with a sore foot. It looks like he may have sliced his foot on the cardboard container. Trying to keep a bandage on this chick is very hard!
Remember Buttermilk, Ruthie's little mallard?
Buttermilk is still very friendly and loves to be held. Why do we always end up with the strange pets?!Speaking of strange pets, Lizzie's muscovy, JJ is still very lonely now that Moab has wandered off.
Alongside my garage I have these beautiful tiger lilies that are just starting to bloom. They look okay from a distance, but if you look up close...
You will see that the ducks have matted down all the lilies closest to the garage. There are many eggs there, too.
Anna's squash is almost ready for picking. Yippee! We love squash. Today, Anna and Maggie are with shopping with my Dad. Saturday is Abigail's first birthday party, so Grandad is hosting it. Should be fun!
I have been cleaning out my pictures and deleting the blurry ones. I found these two of my thrift shop quilt. I bought this baby quilt at SMILES in Calvert County.
Here's a closup of one block. I paid $1 for this beauty! The backing is made of flannel. I think this pattern is called the sunflower.
So we are keeping busy. Mike is working very hard these two weeks teaching short courses at TPS. Our lawn is overgrown because our four lawn mowers are all broken...and not easy fixes. Hopefully that will change this weekend.
Many blessings ~ Kathie
