It was a dark and stormy evening.

Another hot, humid day in the books.  Every summer I swear that I won't complain about the winter cold. Every winter I swear that I won't complete about the summer heat.  I take it back.  I'm complaining about the heat although I haven't felt too bad.  I have fans running in the living room and it has been actually kind of nice.  Especially if I am not doing anything.  

I did get some sewing done - one pillow cover that was supposed to be a Christmas present last year.  I just really hated the design I started with so I held off finishing it until I was inspired.  Now I am only 2 graduation quilts, 1 Christmas quilt, a birthday table runner and a birthday quilt behind. Oh, and now I am up to 3 baby quilts which will end up being 7 because all the babies have siblings.  

We had electrifying storm tonight! One crack of thunder so sharp and so loud, I screamed!  But I loved it and it is raining still.  Which means that hopefully my garden will perk up a little - it has been so sad looking.  

It is so nice having fresh eggs again. We found a chicken coop - a really well made chicken coop - on Freecycle.  It has insulation, a door to the nesting area so I don't have to shimmy through a two foot high space, and it has a full size human door so that I can actually walk upright to change water, to feed them and to let the hens in or out. We called the hens the Spice Girls.. We have Scary, Ginger and Baby Spice.  Pictures to follow at some time when I have the patience to try to get my photos from my phone to my blog.

Here in the Willamette Valley, it rarely gets really hot, but we have drought every summer, and I mean serious drought.

I’m glad you found a chicken coop, and for free no less! I wonder why the previous owner didn’t put it on Craigslist. I hadn’t heard of Freecycle and will have to look it up.

I so enjoy your comments on my blog, and I respect the simplicity with which you try to live your life. I’m so glad we found one another.
