More zinnias in a little glass vase that Hank left me here. I cut the flowers short because I wanted to use it. It's so sweet and the zinnias look extra happy there. They are blooming their pretty little heads off.
The chickens are found. I got a call about 9:30 last night from my next door neighbor who also keeps chickens. Darla, for whatever reason, decided to go roost over there and so she took her babies and broke into their fence. My neighbor put them all in a dog kennel and we went over there and she handed them over. They are all safe and sound and I hope they don't do the same tonight.
What a day it has been. It's rained on and off and sometimes it's deluged, not rained. The grass, while we were gone, grew about a foot and there's no way Mr. Moon can get out there to cut it if it doesn't dry up a little around here. I'm not complaining but these are the facts. I felt as if I had a million things to do today and I sort of did and each one of these things required a "but-first". I was so overwhelmed that I spent a good deal of the day simply walking from one room to another with items in my hands, wondering what I was doing. One thing I had to do was to clean out my freezer. I must have left it slightly open when we left because it had frosted up like crazy although all of the food in it was still frozen solid. So I took everything out and got the ice off of it all and cleaned out the bins and then put everything back. That took awhile.
I did laundry. Loads and loads of laundry and I'm not sure why because we had a washer and dryer in North Carolina.
I unpacked. I put everything away. That felt good. I swept up a broken china thing that was in my bathroom which I am sure Maurice knocked off the dresser in there because that's where she likes to sleep sometimes.
This does not sound like much and yet, it somehow filled my day. It finally quit raining long enough for us to go out and pick the garden.
Here's some of what my husband picked:
"I am not having fun," I told my husband.
He was sympathetic. "Finish up tomorrow," he said. "Or I'll get the rest."
