Ain't what she used to be, ain't what she used to be,
The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be,
Many long years ago.
~ Folk Song
I feel like that sometimes! Ha! That song popped into my head the other day as I was getting up from the floor after playing with my grandson. Then of course there's my hair. Since I decided to stop coloring it and now letting it grow a bit longer it turns out to be a silvery sorta blonde. I asked my husband if I should color it and he said "no, what for?" Gotta love him. I have to admit it's rather nice not to buy hair color anymore!
I baked an apple pie and this time I made sure I had enough crust for a decent top. It was really good, I love mine with a slice of cheddar cheese.
The remaining chickens seem to be doing quite well. We now have 10.
I celebrated a birthday this Summer and my wonderful husband bought me this lovely blouse from April Cornell. I added the rose sash (from Paris Rags) because as much as I love April Cornell's clothing, I find it runs pretty big. If I wear this as is, I look like I'm wearing a maternity top.
Now, this I love, love! It's also by April Cornell. A little darker rose than what was on my computer screen, but it will be nice for Autumn. Excuse my unmade bed in the background, I'm washing the bed linen today:)
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf. Rabindranath Tagore Sorry I haven't been around much lately. We lost three more chickens in the last few weeks. We think due to heat ~ at least that is what the vet said when he did an autopsy on the last chicken (Miss Pittypat). Anyway, everything else here is going well. Our garden is a bit worse for wear ~ too hot and too wet. Oh well, there's always next year.
I put my blog back to the Simple template, I found the other one too hard to navigate:)
