The Rescue

I have just made a strange discovery in the last week...I think my computer is posessed. (insert "Twilight Zone" music here.) I've been having some strange things going on, and it seems to involve my internet connection. Anyhoo, this story was supposed to be on here a few days ago. Enjoy, while I go slam my mouse around a few times for good measure. (And stress relief.)



While I was inside the barn locking up all the birds at dusk the other night, I heard what sounded like the world's biggest bumblebee. I looked around and didn't see anything, but it seemed to sound louder up in the loft. I climbed up on Hubby's tractor to look, and up in the highest peak of the metal-roof barn, was a trapped Hummingbird.

(Yay!) Hubby cleaned out the rows so we can plant some pumpkins and indian corn for Fall. I can't wait- Fall is my favorite time of the year!
I am catching up on some much needed indoor chores this week and since there is supposed to be some rain in the weather forecast for the next couple of days, I might even get to dust off my sewing machine. I have some projects in my craft room that have been just laying there waiting to be finished for some time now.... aprons with no straps, chickens with no beaks, patterns with missing pieces (ugh)... you get the picture.
I also have some wonderful new recipes to try out (and share!) so I'm planning on posting on those soon, as well as some new items for my ETSY store. By the way, any recipe you could ever want or need is over a…
