Tonight, Chris’ trio will be playing in town for First Fridays on Mainstreet. He will be playing at The Pantry at 619 Main Street from 6-8pm. If you are here in town and would like to join us to listen to some great jazz music, please come down to The Pantry tonight. We’ll hope to see you there!
This is the “boys club” at our house…Pal (gray), Shrek and Willow (black). They were all enjoying the woodstove fire the other night. The kittens are 6 months old now and rarely do they sit still long enough for me to take a picture, but this time they were in the mood to just soak up the warmth of the fire and relax with their buddy Shrek.
I made a fast trip to Nebraska this week for an overnight visit with my sister and her husband. They recently built this greenhouse to replace a smaller one they’ve had for many years. This greenhouse turned out wonderfully and she’s planting now in the ground inside. So far there is a section of herbs, some wheat grass for her chickens, and cool season veggies for her kitchen use.
We stayed up late talking about everything. The next morning after breakfast I was headed back home, but feeling loved and in gratitude for the time to spend visiting with her even if it was a short visit.
Then there is the sad news… after 20 1/2 years, our old gal Pouncita passed over. We all miss her terribly. She adopted us when she was 4 weeks old and we had only lived on our farm for a couple of months. Her mother left her in our farm-yard. She was a feisty little kitten then and she ran the household as a queen would all the nearly 21 years she lived.
Sadie, our black cat, and the kittens and Shrek are missing her company too. We’ll all adapt to her being gone, but right now it feels like someone is missing and she is.
All for now. Time to get back to work on the farm office tasks.
