We are having some warm weather here in the Lehigh Valley (PA) and my neighbor stopped over yesterday to give us some of the bounty that he had collected from his garden. The tomatoes & sweet peppers are from our garden, the rest was from the neighbors. I took the picture with my new Blackberry, I just love that phone!! Hope everyone is have a great evening.
Many of you know that Les & I have a antiques business. Most (and I do mean most) of our inventory is stored on our property. Two sheds and inside of our house. In our home we have what I'm guessing would be called a Living Room. It has a door to the outside (our front yard) a large window facing our front yard, two side windows that look out onto our Mud Porch, a doorway to the Kitchen, Family Room and my home office. The stairs also come down into this room and there is a door to a very, very small closet (original bathroom). This is the room where the pieces of furniture that go to shows with us get deposited. This room also has my 45" loom in it, spinning wheels (one is for sale), etc. We have never used this room as a LR and now we are think that we should set it up more like a Antique Shop. The idea is growing on me. When I can I will post before and after pictures. Stay Tuned.
With the beautiful weather we are having today I decided it was time to clean out the duck pens. So, early this morning "The Girls" went outside. They are slightly younger then the boys and can get around quite good. DD aka Danger Duck has been lame for quite sometime now and I decided that he and our other boy would not venture out. The pens were not that bad, considering they have not been cleaned out for quite sometime. It's not a easy task when you are trying to clean around two ducks who need to see what you are doing. But, they are all done and fresh straw is now in place. This will probably the last time they will get cleaned out this year, but when the ducks don't go out every day and don't eat or drink in the pens, they really stay quite clean. There was a time when I had my dozen or so ducks that the pens were cleaned every weekend!! But no more, I have learned alot since those days. My fun will begin in a little while when I try and get the girls back in. But for now they are enjoying their pond and just maybe they will wear themselves out and want to head in to the Duck Hilton tonite. I have posted a new header picture, Fall at Ginnysyard. Enjoy your day!!
