A Welcome Surprise

I went to the barn to discover my stray chicken is sitting on eggs! What a welcome surprise. For some odd reason she prefers the comforts of my barn and the companionship of Clover my pig to her former home (my neighbors). I hope she has lots of little baby chicks.
Kissy went today to be spayed, she is out of surgery and all went well. I will be going to pick her up soon. I will keep you all updated on the bees! I am nervous and excited at the same time. The bee box still has not arrived. Which is making me worried the bees will arrive before the box. I am hoping that is not the case.
The house is coming along nicely and I will have new pics very soon. There's hamburger steak and gravy simmering in the crock pot and buttermilk biscuits and potatoes to come later. The freshly laundered quilts are flapping in the breeze, it's truly a lovely "summerish" day.
Blessings to all!

How sweet! Glad to hear Kissy came out of surgery well. My little Sally needs to be spayed, but I'm afraid cause she gets sick all the time. Thanks for sharing your pic of mama! She is sweet! hugs, michelle

How exciting! I just love those kind of surprises. We've had a couple of "summerish" days here too and it seems like I just can't get enough done!(I'm afraid that they'll go away.) The sunshine, warm breezes and quilts on the line are most welcome after such a long winter. By the way, I have always wanted to keep bees and I am tempted to be pea green with envy, but since that is a sin (lol) I will just be REALLY happy for you my friend. I can't wait to hear all about your bee keeping adventures! :-)
