Had this blog just about finished when the power went...I AM NOT HAPPY! So, to start again.
Was up early this morning and had an email from our good friends saying that yesterday they had to have one of their cats put down. Liver disease, cancer. They are devastated! He was a huge, lovable boy, more like a teddy bear than a cat. The same thing happened to our Thomas a couple of years ago and to tell the truth, I still don't think we are quite over it. So sad when these things happen.
It's been a sunny day but wind has been coming from the North for days now so it was chilly. Decided to do some weeding early morning as with the chill the black flies wouldn't be bothering me. My heart wasn't in it really so didn't get much done. Then we decided to go buy some grass seed as an area that was quite wet during spring doesn't seem to be coming along very well with regards to grass. Have the seed down now and my main worry was that the chickens would eat it all, but they are not bothered with it...yet.
Spent a while sitting on the deck. Finches coming and going. It's funny because I rarely saw a finch before this year but now they are back and forth all day long. Took some pictures. I know, I know, I've put on lots of finch pictures. What can I say....here they are.
And then we have "Chicken at Rest"
