Written by Sue, Wedesday,May2, 2012 Summer has arrived, humid and hot 90 today, and getting warmer
Had a full day of painting planned for today, but swarming termites had other plans for dh and I, we were happily talking and painting, when both of us began to be bitten by these flying bugs, they began to stick to the wet paint , I called them flying termites. The bites really did sting, we tried to be troopers by swatting them hoping they would give up, but they became more numerous, we surrendered, and went to the house. So we decided to run errands to get more supplies, a bonus was lunch at Panera Bread with Mr P.
Having a baby that needs lots of attention, keeps us busy too. Which one of these two was enjoying the moment the most, (hint) don't think it was Mr P. We have tried to get Buttercup- Tulip, ( named by Susie and Katie), acclaimated to grazing with the other sheep, but she wants to be with us, everywhere we go, we have bottle fed lambs before , but have never had one that is so attached to us. You should hear Mr P. talking to her, I am beginning to think that might be the reason.
Helping pops with plowing, Lucy is shedding her winter coat, and looks a little ragged like me! ~smile~ I see a visit to the groomers in her near future, especially if temps. stay in the 90's for sure! After I took this photo, I gave her a good brushing and got enough fur for another pooch!
Our hanging baskets are really growing., I am looking forward to getting the furniture painted, and my sheer curtains put up!
Only God could make something so beautiful!
This is sweet marjoram , I will be harvesting, and drying it this week. A great culinary herb, very similar to oregano,but a little sweeter. One use is to combine it with sage in preparing a turkey breast.
Well that's about all for today, I must get outside and walk before night time catches me. I am trying to become more disciplined in my exercise.
