Friday Reflections ~ Saturday's Sunrise

We had a beautiful sunrise this morning.  It's a bit chilly, but peaceful and quiet outside.  Sparta (Rooster) must be cold this morning, as I didn't hear much of his crow this morning.

I had to head to town Friday, after laundry was on the line.  I had my annual dentist appointment.  All is good.  However, trips to any "big" city discombobulate my work day.  I should really plan ahead.   

Not much to blog today.  I kind of took it easy yesterday - sipping hot nettle tea on the porch, and doing a bit of handiwork while Timmy curled up beside me.  Shh!  Don't tell Hubby.  I should have been cleaning or doing something in the house.  

There is much work to do this weekend, including muck the coop.  I have a long list of delegated jobs for the girls too.  Although I love this cooler weather, it does put us into high gear in completing outdoor work.

Remember those leaves I collected and pressed?  Well, I got a start on that too, but needed other leaves.  I had to press a few more, but hope to have something to share in a week or two.

Gosh, this post sounds like all I did was play yesterday.  Yikes.  

Speaking of work, I told Hubby I heard the big barn creaking as I walked a dog around it.  It might fall down before we tear it down.

The carrot cake is all gone now, so I hope to get something baked for meals this weekend, along with the other work.  We'll see.

I know what you mean about trips to the big city. I don't like going any further than 10-15 miles down the road. If it's not within that area, I have to think long and hard about it before I go, like "Do I really need it that badly?"
Course, with the way of life, sometimes the answer is "Yes!" LOL

God bless.
