But then there are days like today. The sun was just getting over the hill and peeking through the pines. The temperature hovered around 40F degrees, so, cool enough for a sweater but not cold enough to freeze the water. My nine-year-old son brought the waterer down the hill from the chicken coop for me to fill and return.
I filled the waterer and carried it back to the coop, escorted by Frodo the Wonder Yorkie. I tossed some feed into the yard for the hens and left them happily scratching around, clucking and munching.
These ARE the good old days.

The pattern for my nook cover came from a great etsy seller, Birdiful Stitches. She has several patterns for nook/kindle/ipad covers and the patterns are delivered right to your email inbox.
Any new projects at your place?

"We are all human beings," Mma Ramotswe had once observed to Mma Makutsi, "and human beings can't really help themselves. Have you noticed that, Mma? We can't really help ourselves from doing things that land us in all sorts of trouble."

The Earl of Mint tea is very good and it is just what it sounds like--earl grey tea (what could be better?) blended with mint. Ahhhh....
Dream Weaver's Southern Peach Green tea is perfect for the southern belle in you--delicate green tea with a bit of peach.
I've saved the best for last, the Chocolate Chai Tea. And, yes, it has actual chocolate in it. Just savor that thought for a moment... chocolate in your tea.
Okay, now go to Dream Weaver's shop and order some tea.
