Success! Buffy the hen produced her very first egg yesterday!! Here it is, fresh from the nest! Isn't it pretty? Our last Buff Orpington hen laid a pinkish brown egg and this looks kind of rosy brown, doesn't it? Woohoo!
Here is the egg with my Majolica hen. :-)We went shopping at Costco yesterday and in the flower display they had these sunflowers, so I popped them into the cart. When I got them home I wondered what vase to use as the flowers are pretty big and heavy - I found just the thing in my Hoosier kitchen queen cabinet - a gallon sized antique pickle jar. I am enjoying these flowers immensely!
Aren't they perfect for Autumn?
My fall wreath on the back door. Everyone uses the back entrance.. only strangers use the front door. :-)
This is my "view" from my easy chair in the family room. I enjoy it. What is YOUR view from your easy chair?
AND... right after our egg came.. so did the mail lady.. with my yarn so I can finish this shawl! I have 2 and a half rows of the lacy edging to go. Can't wait to wear this as the colors are perfect for fall, don't you think?
These colors speak to me.
I have enjoyed this yarn so much that I got 6 skeins of another colorway, I think it's called "Sea".
It's "microfiber" and it's very soft.
Hello... I'm a sunflower.. :-DToday I went swimming. Tomorrow I'm having a friend over for lunch. Gracie, my blog friend from One Saylor's Log. I'm preparing a shrimp salad for us. I'm sure I'll have some photos and stories for you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
