After that, I wandered around the front of the house while my coffee was roasting. I have to do my roasting outside as it smokes something fierce.
|The eaves along the front of the house are lined with birds' nests.|
|We also have bats living in the eaves. They are very messy eaters leaving bits and pieces of dinner below.|
|My lilac is not very robust. Most years it doesn't even flower. Look what I found this morning!|
|More good things: the peach tree looks like it might make it after all. New growth!|
We got back home just in time to start dinner and do barn chores. I turned Jackson out in the arena so he could roll, stretch his legs, and give his brain a break from the barn. When I went to bring him back, he saw me coming and ran to the gate to meet me.
While we finished up chores, the dogs had a good ol' time in the mud.
Dinner tonight was Skoog Farm soup and focaccia. Yum! I tried to take a picture but Brett and Camille were messing with me. They think it's funny the way I take pictures of dinner. Harumph!
