Friday Follow-Up

This week:


-- I picked yarrow and started an infusion to use in soap- and salve-making.

-- The kittens in their nest in the hay have opened their eyes.

-- The daily egg count is still down, although I'm still getting 2-3 eggs per day. Since black snakes often come in pairs, I'm afraid there might be another one. I'm checking out the coop *very carefully* before I go inside every morning!

-- Our pyrenees continues to improve, but she's not nearly well yet. She wants to be well, but her body still doesn't do what she wants it to do. She wants to run this direction; her hindquarters want to go that way. It's almost comical. She finished her course of antibiotics and is now taking a second course. The vet said it might take even more. But she's barking at the mail carrier now, and this week I heard her bark during the night at something. These are improvements that I'm happy to see and hear. A friend whose dog had this many years ago - twice, in fact - recovered completely, so I am hopeful.

-- Fruit drop of course occurs in the strong Oklahoma winds, but hopefully there will be plenty of ripe fruit soon. The tomato plants are loaded with green tomatoes too.

-- I'm so thankful that this year's hay crop is abundant. We dropped our trailer at our friend's house; she'll load it up with new square bales and call us when it's ready to take home.

-- As I walked to the mailbox one afternoon this week, I could smell the lovely scent of mimosa even though there are no blossoms on the trees yet.
