Laundry Lines, Sweet Eggs and Circles Of Oak

Helloooo My Darlin Dears:)

Well, Dadio did not get to make it to the farm today....but...he is coming tomorrow and bringing my mother along...not only are we going to put a new laundry line up made out of saved wood...but...we are going to finish cleaning the big metal barn where I am moving all of my wood shop tools:) Lovely lovely:)

It already has a lovely old radio sitting on the counter top of one of the tables, a great stock of old wood and amazing storage:)

Last spring, the band Umbrellas recorded their newest album there....amongst many other places around the farm (including the grain silo) ....but I will get back to the wood shop later:)

So....since the wind was a bit crazy and the light was off and on and I saw rain on the horizon..I did not go to the meadow either...but...I did take the chance to clean some linens and hang them on my old laundry line for the last time:)

I titled it "I Saw You As The Day"...

It has a poem, but I have not finished the poem yet...

After doing the laundry, I had a lovely breakfast of sweet eggs....yes...sweet eggs:)

I have been feeding my chickens the rind of my cantaloupe and their eggs have in return taken on a sweet taste...I prepare them as Eggs in a basket or eggs on toast...with a side of honey and olive oil, fresh fruit and greek yogurt :) yummy:)

I did not spend a lick of time getting ready and such..but...I always wear dresses...I was not running the saw today in the wood shop so I wore but of course a cotton dress all the live long day:)

....& I can not forget my lovely riding boots:)

But....as I was talking about before...my wood shop:)

This fall I shall be working with a lot of raw wood...circles of them my loves:) I shall mount my pictures on top of them:)

Here are some with only minor work done so far:)

Goodness gracious will it be exciting to show you all the final product:) Thank you to Daniel's mom Jennette for the lovely wood:) she fought off spiders for me:)

Well...last but not least...I had time to laugh at my hilarious studio.....such a crazy lovely mess....A pathless meadow in its self:)

I know tomorrow shall be lovely and productive...mostly because of my amazing family who would do anything for me:) even drive two hours to have a laundry line raising party:) Goodness gracious they are great...they have learned that I am not the normal girl....and they have proved to me that they have noticed and love me even more for it:)

I love you family:)

Cheers, Beards & Cellos

Meadow Meanderings

Hellloooo my Darlin Dears:)

As tough as it may be... as much as I am going to skip off to Lala Land (or Gnome Meadow If you are on early bird acres)...

I am going to try to blog every day in some form (as long as i am not in the mountains and such)... even if it is just a little bit of info, I will try:)

A lovely fresh start for a new take on life...

Since I am never the same from one breath to the next:)

I will try to post:
*Captures from the farm
*Current Projects
*Things I am baking
*Places I carry my artwork
*Thoughts about life
*Personal Goals( a big thing for me lately)

I have heard your thoughts and your requests...so here we go my Darlin Dears:)


Today I drove back to the farm from being in the city....I have been in this really akward tired Lull this last past week and I am cracking it up to hormones and such...I just seem to run out of energy when I need lots of it..ya know?

But...On my way home I spotted some wild flowers....the sun was to high for my ideal capture, but I had my daily Picnic there anyways:)

I read up on some wild flowers:)

Then......i went and briefly had some dollar coffee with my old man friends in town...just three old men over 70 who could tell you about the world and a half if given the chance:) I lost my own grandfather over 3 years ago and I miss his words about the world... they do great things for my heart and they do not even know it:)

I then bought a vacum I could not afford at all... I just hated the idea of coming home to my adorable couches covered in pet hair and never being able to clean them without spending hours to do so...so I spent the $30 and bit the bullet..& I am better for it:)

I also washed my quilt collection in my washtub outside and hung them to dry:)

My Dadio is coming to early bird acres on the morrow...he is going to help me put up my new laundry line....part of it will be anchored to the house and the other half, a lovely post I have been saving for something special:)

For dinner....I went and visited the bee man...

He is a be keeper in the Wichitas who lets me help him harvest from time to time and he pays me in honey:)


So I decorate my kitchen in Clover honey and bask in it's glow:)

Wish me luck tomorrow...my plate is full goodness gracious... luckily, I only doing things that are whole-hearted:)

Cheers, Beards & Banjos
