Our summer started out not so good with my son getting hurt - he's OK now - but we had to call an ambulance and he had to stay overnight in the hospital. I still hear the screaming in my sleep, it was awful.
In his down days after the accident he and his brother did some lovely painting for me and we made a fun (dollar store beach item) mantle display, which I'm about to take down (I'm entering FALL mode, my favorite season).

When I wasn't dealing with that I was doing other projects like building 8 raised beds for my new garden or building a hug chicken coop with my brother for my 19 chickens, 2 roosters and 2 turkeys . 6 of the chickens and one rooster are going to live with a friend soon as I have decided that maybe I don't need quite so many, and the turkeys....well, they are leaving soon too as they are table ready.
|The turkeys are the ones by the table - well over 20 lbs each. Still have to paint the trim and add some flashing and faceboards to the roof.|

I am also working on my first rag quilt: Doh, can't find the photo on my card! Oh well, next time.

Ok, enough for one post, I'll save some for tomorrow.
