My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

DEATH IN THE FAMILY

My husband's father passed away yesterday. Luckily, I'd pushed Hubby to go straight after work on Friday so he had spent most of Saturday with him (and his sister and her husband).

Gotta figure out what to do with the dog and my kid.

And I have a chicken who got his eyes pecked out last night.

Already found someone to come feed and water the livestock, and collect eggs. Another person will come over and milk the goat.

Can't find our suitcases.  Need more feed.  Hay needs to be moved closer to the goats.  Need to get keys made. Somebody staying in house this week.

So much to do.

Hubby is heart broken but at least his father is not in any more pain.
