Hello all!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful spring and getting the rain they need for crops and that everyone is happy and healthy!

We are not moved in yet....still lots to do but yet making progress all the same.  The 3 bedrooms upstairs are almost all done.  One lacks closet trim and then all 3 need closet shelving and new lights and doors.  More painting needs to be done.  Downstairs still not started.  Upstairs bath not complete.  Was hoping to say we would make it by June 30th, but maybe by July 31?  We will see. 

Our chickens arrived last week - we had 22 ordered and they threw in an extra.  Well we have lost 2 so far.  We got a mix of Brown Leghorns, Buff Orpingtons, Black Australorps, and Barred Rocks.

The geese and their 7 goslings are doing fine. 

We are seeing our garden come alive with seeds popping thru the ground. 

Sure seems like a first cutting of hay is in order.  Grass is growing like crazy.

Happy belated Memorial Day and thanks to all our service men and women protecting the freedoms of our country.  Prayers go out for you and your families.

Wishing we could get a few dry days so we can cut our hay.

The cutting has started around here....but not our fields yet.  Supposed to hit 95 today and tomorrow so maybe ours will be next-we'll see.

I wish I would get a little less rain, I've only been able to get my tomatoes in so far everything else is still sitting in their peet pots in their flats waiting for it to stop raining long enough for me to get out there and get them in.
