Here’s a bunch of photos for you, going back to the Fourth of July. I’m happy that it doesn’t LOOK like we spend all our time inside! I have so much I’d like to work on outside, but I haven’t figured out how to do that with a little baby who doesn’t nap regularly… and doesn’t nap very often when not attached to me. There’s only so much you can do with a baby in a wrap, especially when it’s 80˚+ out. The garden needs serious attention and the chicken quarters need rearranging. We’ve got two-month-old chicks living in the barn with the big chickens, two-week-old chicks inside (who need to go out but stay under a lamp), and then the week-old guinea keets with Aster, in the mini-coop.

But ever since the older chicks went into the barn, the “old” hen house has been empty, so M and I have been working to get it cleaned up and turned into a play house. I’ve removed all the chicken stuff (bedding, roost, feeder, etc.) and scrubbed down the walls, but there’s still a lot more to do. M can’t decide if she wants the walls to be pink or blue (but not dark blue, because that’s too DARK, we’ve all decided). She’s pretty excited about her little house, and I am, too, so now we just have to get the baby on board and cooperative, so we can work on it!

  1. Wonderful photos! I am so happy to hear that all is well with your little family! It can be overwhelming when you have an infant and an active little girl! My youngest two were only 9 months apart when my last son was born. He was a preemie and thank goodness my middle child walked at 9 months and his oldest brother was in kindergarten! At the time I was living on blood transfusions as a result of a blood disease. But all works out if one keeps the faith! I am now 75 years old, the preemie grew to be 6′ tall and between the two youngest I now have 5 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren! :<)

    Wishing you a great week!
