The craic was grand as was the music. Bad jokes and stories, great songs, and a warm bond was shared on this evening. This is what the music is all about.
With such grand craic on Saturday night and the glass being passed over my lips time and time again, Sunday was spent quietly trying to crochet, reflecting in my journal, and just some much needed down time.
All in all, it was a wonderful weekend. Hope yours was the same.

p.s. - I must have been really tired last night. I forgot to title the post. It was a long day.....or I'm just getting old....

Today was what I call a "piddlin" day-you know, you putz around doing this and that, or, nothing at all. I chose to spend part of my day curled up in a comfy chair doing some herb courses and some soul re-connecting.
I love my living room. I love the deep orange and the warmth it radiates. It's the type of room that draws you in and beckons for you to sit for a while. It didn't get any argument from me today! Now mind, I did my outside chores early. I let the girls out into the frosty, morning air to scratch around for some treats and while they were busy outside, I humped the 50lb bag of feed and refilled their bins, mucked out the coop, and refreshed the nest boxes. After the chicken chores were done, I gathered up my gear for the trot around the yard dog poop expedition and waste management!
After the outside chores were done, I sat down to make some more smudge sticks from sage and lavender I harvested earlier in the year. I love making smudge sticks. It's a project of meditative value to me. In other words, you're so focused at the task at hand that your mind doesn't wander to all the woes and worries that are normally running around in there. Another reason I love to make these is that the kitchen smells fantastic as you're making them!Finally, I'll leave you with my meager harvest of the day - white sage, lavender, and an egg.
It's not much, but, it's still a gift.

I've been working in the garden all morning cleaning beds and adding compost so I can plant my garlic. Some of the beds weren't used this season so I decided that's where I'll plant them. I had to pull a fair amount of crab grass out of the beds, but after that, I just use my trusty stirrup hoe and it fluffs up like a dream. I spread a bag of organic leaf compost on each bed and once that dries a little, I'll hoe again, then the beds should be go to go!
My tomato's finally decided to produce (in October!), but, they all have blossom end rot and they are teeny tiny. To small to bother with really, so the chickens are having a party getting fresh tomato's everyday. Spoiled chickens!
Speaking of the girls, I'm finally experiencing the first moult. They are not looking too attractive right now! Egg production is way down - maybe an egg or two every other day. I knew this would happen so I've been keeping some reserves on hand so I hopefully won't run out!Finally, it seems that fall is starting to show some color around here! I think it will be a fast display of color before all the leaves tumble to the ground. Then comes collecting and chopping all those leaves to make beautiful leaf compost!
I'll be announcing the winner of the blogiversary drawing tonight, so, if you haven't entered yet, you still have time. Just become a follower and then leave a comment!
Back to mowing.

It's hard to believe, but, October 16th was my one year blogiversary! I never thought in my wildest dreams I'd still be blogging, but, even more so, that there are folks out there who actually read my blog!
I also want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have come to visit and endure my weird sense of humor! It's been one hell of a ride and my broom isn't worn out yet - so, this must mean I'll keep on keeping on with the blog.
Thanks again, everyone, and good luck!!

Plan on stirring up some fun. Maybe have some cider or mead whilst stirring up your batch of fun.
Whatever fun you decide to stir up, make sure you don't get into too much trouble ;-)
Have a peacefully stirred up weekend, y'all.......
