I am particularly enjoying this morning. After spending 3 days in a hotel while our house filled with 30 high-powered fans and 2 de-humidifiers, it is finally dry.
Unfortunately, we weren’t able to stay in our home during that time, but those fans produce a lot of heat and the interior temperatures of our house was 93 degrees. Not to mention that fact that every we walked, we had to step over a fan.
My kitchen is also back into working order as well. Now, we are waiting for the insurance company to send over a contractor to help repair the damage – new carpet, some cabinet repair, etc.
Okay, enough about the flood. Now back to more important things. Some of you may know my sister, Grace, who has her own blog. She lives just five minutes away on Double S Farms along with my mother.
Grace is extremely creative and posts many DIY projects. I thought that I would share a photo of one of her latest projects (for obvious reasons).
We are making progress on our front garden renovation. I will share soon!
As many of you know, my mother, sister and her family are residents of Double S Farms, and live only 5 minutes away from my home.
I love to share tidbits about desert ‘farm’ life, which really isn’t all that different from that of a normal farm. I enjoy posting about their resident chickens and dogs, their citrus, peach , plum and apple trees and of course, Mr. Toad.
Earlier this week, they received some new arrivals on the ‘farm’. My sister, Chicken Farmer, has her own blog and here is her latest post:
“I got a call early this morning from the post office that a box had arrived for me that was marked “live animals” and was making noises. Oliver and I high tailed it over to pick our special delivery up. The chicks came all the way to Arizona from Connecticut (1 day express) which seems like a pretty hefty trip for these tiny things. Because of this, I’m always a little apprehensive opening the box in case one or more didn’t make it. Fortunately, the box was very loud and I could feel the girls moving around inside.
Once we got the girls unpacked, we carefully placed them into the brooder which will be their home until they are fully feathered (around 6 or 7 weeks) and ready to move outside.
I hope you don’t mind me borrowing my sister’s latest blog post, but I frankly find baby chicks adorable.
