We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

I am pursuing my happiness today by rolling and tying newspapers for the bike parade tomorrow. I am representing The Bracken County News and throwing newspapers. My boss thinks I'm a little nuts but is going along with the idea.

The beets are done (and they didn't get very big) so I transplanted the beans right before rain. A fog crept in about 8 pm last night.

On a funny note my old granny dog,Tina, loves to go with me to the garden and sneaks peas out of the basket. She eats them pod and all!

Vanessa,, I am green with envy... you are harvesting veggies... my beets are only 3-4" tall.. we had a very long Winter/very cold & wet late Spring... we are just now finally getting nice weather...
The only thing that is on par in my garden are my red onions.. and one very crooked sunflower... lol!

My gentle persuasion has gotten through to my sweetie. Now he has his own straw when we eat out.

Vanessa -those veggies look great! I'd love to hear about your trip to Diamond State park - Hubby wants to go really bad. We're heading out shortly to the ruby mines in North Carolina.

Those veggies are beautiful and I am down right jealous. We do have beautiful lettuce though. My beets and carrots are tiny babies. We also love borscht.

The first veggies from my garden! Not enough to make borscht though.

I agree! I used to love haying time and saw it all my life---have even helped in hay fields. We have had much excitement in the holler---LOL. Our road was worked for three days and how wonderful that was! Today the power line was worked on and many trees cut and trimmed---including those in our yard. We are raising thirty baby chickens and they are a joy. They came in the mail---so exciting. The 17 year cicadas are out and singing. I am busy weed eating the donkey field down to make the grass better and I fall in bed so tired and sleep like a baby. Planting a garden and flowers---tooo busy to think. But I was feeling like my house looked like a disgusting ugly mess and the young men cutting the power line asked my husband if he was a millionaire and he said ---not hardly. And another one said if this is Rock Bottom Farm---I want one. Oh how they lifted my old holler spirit. Rock on Vanessa and I will too.

Yesterday you could hear the hum of tractors cutting fields. We also had our acres cut. Nothing smells better than cut grass!

I am so happy that you got bees. I always wanted some---we tried twice and they always left: but we went to a friend's house and caught them when they were swarming. They won't sting when swarming and it was so weird to stand in the middle of them. I just finally gave up. All the honey bees are dying. We hardly ever see one. I so hope yours live and do great. Now we have those murder hornets coming that kill the honey bees. This earth is in such a mess---climate change will do us in, But I'm like Scarlett O'Hara---I'll worry about that tomorrow. Although we all need to worry about it today.

Vanessa that's awesome! We want to get bees too.

Things are just buzzin' at our old Kentucky home. We got the call on Friday and drove to our bee store on Saturday to pick up our bees. An experienced member of the Buffalo Trace Beekeepers club helped us choose the site and gave us additional info so we didn't have to reinvent the wheel. This morning we will let the ladies out to explore their new home.

My mother-in-law is fixing up her west facing porch for the warmer weather, whenever it arrives. We had a freeze warning last night that froze birdbath water.

Its funny the little things that make a person happy. We have garage door openers that are touchy. You can stand right in front of the door and they won't work. When you drop them they split in 3 pieces. Imagine my surprise when it worked on the first time today.

Audra I love the pictures. Especially the one of the bleeding heart, Love those little wiener dogs legs!! Have had wieners since I was a kid. I can tell you and your hubby are having such a wonderful time doing so much with your home. It is such a nice place. Now for some adventures with that new camper too! Have a wonderful time,

Vanessa---I beat you on the hummers by about three days---you are right they may freeze this weekend in the chilly temps=---this weather do get tedious. My husband bought yard tools with our stimulus money---including a weed eater for me. Happy summer to me--LOL! Love your camper and enjoy. FUN! FUN! FUN! for sure. Rock on dear child.

In addition, I caved in to my sweeties request <wink> and let him get a camper. It's a 17 ft. Jayco with a bathroom and a/c. As you can see, inside it is rather vanilla, but I plan to paint it and add decorations. Sweetie and I are planning to go to Crater of Diamonds State Park in mid June.

Today, with a bit of stimulus money, we expanded our front yard all the way to the garage. When it is not as windy I'll paint the front fence, but the fence to the right can stay black. We also saw our first hummingbird today.
