♡ ♡ ♡ ♡Only 34 degrees this morning (35 yesterday) and a bit of frost in places but the sun was out and there was no wind. 34 seems a lot warmer in May than it does in January. : )
I walked the Farm Loop and saw quite a few animals around this morning. Three deer crossed the street in front of me and later I got a picture of another one.
A few rabbits were around as well. This one was a big guy.
I walked 6.1 miles.
Found a penny.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡Had breakfast and did my morning routine. Hung the sheets out on the line to dry and then we went to Lowe's and bought the wood for Ken to build the raised garden beds. I think the last of the frost is gone and I'll be able to plant my herbs outside now.
The weather warmed up nicely to the mid 60's and the sun was out too in a beautiful blue sky.
This afternoon Ken went up to HT to the wood shop to start on the raised garden beds. He's making two of them to start.
I stayed home and mowed the lawn. You should see me on my mower now. : ) I can turn that thing around on a dime and I zoom around the yard and have it mowed in no time.
When that was done I dug up six ornamental grasses that were just starting and threw them away. Just too many of those things around the yard. I have an off shoot from my neighbors lilac bush and planted that and also six yellow marigolds in their place.
I saw a couple of hummingbirds so hung up the hummingbird feeder on the front porch. I'll be able to watch them from the picture window. In the picture below of the birds nest you can see it hanging in the reflection in the window. Also me taking the picture.
I climbed up on the step stool out by the front door with my camera to get a picture inside the robins nest. I can't see anything until I take the picture because it is high up at the top of the porch.
I was happy to see three perfect little blue eggs sitting there in the nest.
Hope your day is happy and bright.

There's something about getting up at 5 a.m.,
feeding the stock and chickens,
and milking a couple of cows before breakfast
that gives you a lifelong respect for the
price of butter and eggs.
Three Thankful Things
- Seeing all the animals this morning
- That I have a yard and garden and a riding mower
- Three perfect eggs
Kim - about the fast vacuuming - I didn't feel at all like doing it so I got it done as fast as I could. : )
