The work on the garden has slowed somewhat as we are now harvesting! We quickly realized that we need much more space for staples in the garden if we hope to put any up. We have plenty for eating, but not much to store.
The chickens are getting so big! They are a lot of fun to watch as they peck around the yard. No eggs yet, but we could be getting eggs within the next month or so!
So, we have this sofa. It came with the house. It is VERY old (like hundreds of years old) and supposedly came from a tavern near Hadensville, VA. It has been here at Hunter's Grove for quite some time. I can't get rid of it... but, it is extremely uncomfortable and nobody wants to sit on it. We made a plan to move it upstairs to our bedroom "reading nook" and had saved some money for purchasing a new sofa. We chose a nice sofa (not the peacock blue velvet I had in mind, but nice anyway), and planned to purchase it ASAP. It was on backorder. Before it was available again, Ali (our 10 year old boxer) was bitten on the face by a copperhead. 2 nights in the animal hospital and the sofa money was gone. We brought the old sofa back down to the living room. Booooo!
But then... Mema swoops in to save the day! She called me and said, "I bought you a sofa from the Echo Shop (a thrift store in her building at Westminster Canturbury) for $50. I hope you like it." I wasn't sure what to think. Anything would be better than what we were sitting on currently, though. When Brandon brought it home I was thrilled! There int the back of his truck was a peacock blue velvet sofa!
Theo's therapy is going great! He is talking up a storm and it is so much fun to watch! He had a birthday last month. I can hardly believe he's 2! The crib is gone and he is in a big boy bed now! His sleeping is getting better, too!
