A Little Of This And A Little Of That

Everything around here has been hot and dry. We did get a good shower this morning. Also, got rain on Monday of this week. There's more supposed to be on it's way later on tonight. We really need the rain on our garden. We have tried to keep it watered but it's just not the same as what I refer to as "God Water". Rain that is.

My sweet friend, Mrs. Gladys always laughed when I called rain "God Water". She would say, "It's all God Water." I told her "Yes, but we add some junk to what we catch and use from the tap and it doesn't do as good on the garden as when God sends the rain." We always got a chuckle out that. But it's really the truth. Water from the faucet just doesn't help the garden as much as rain water does.

We are getting very few veggies. Our garden has really fizzled this summer. We are planning to go back to raised beds in frames for next spring. The raised beds are easier to tend and to keep watered.

Some of that now: William finished my pots and pans pantry. We still have to stain it and put something on the side next to the stove to keep it from getting splattered when I'm cooking. I will post a picture in the next day or two.

We have started the painting in the kitchen. The color is called light copper but it's almost a french vanilla yellow. It's really weird as that's exactly the color I tried to find and couldn't find one that I thought looked like french vanilla ice cream. But we got it in the light copper.

We have one part ready to put up shelves so we can remove the cabinets in the rest of the kitchen. We have to go get the shelving materials and get them stained. We need to chose the brackets to put the shelves on, too.

That's about all that's going on right now. Other than we had three Barred Rock chicks hatch out of eleven eggs. My Mom told me the weather is too hot for hens to set.

I guess it's too hot for the ducks also. One of our ducks had a clutch of around twenty eggs and only hatched four ducklings. So, I guess the weather must have caused the eggs to go bad there too.

I'm hoping to set some more hens a little later on when the weather cools some. Maybe the ducks will lay another clutch of eggs too. I can only hope.

That's about all that's happening here at Hunny Bunny Haven. Thanks for dropping by and come again anytime.


  1. Hello Cuz....sorry your garden isn't getting the rain it needs....lots of work goes into gardening and without the rain water it just doesn't do well. Hope it picks up some and you get more veggies out of it. I just been buying mine from the store. They're pretty good right now...but can't compare to fresh out of the garden!
    Well, I pop in every once in awhile to see how its all going. I like keeping up with you. :)
    love you
