This or That Thursday: the 19th eDition

My bones never steer me wrong.

Spring is here.

It takes a little adjusting to seeing ripples on the pond again. It takes no adjusting at all
to hanging sheets out on the line, flannel sheets no less. It's a rare and special treat to curl up in
bed on a Sunday night with a book and sweet smelling winter sheets.

The chickens have been displaying their natural surfing abilities as they stretch out one wing 
while coasting along the sun's rays and making the oddest cooing noises.
While the bees have just proven that they're still alive.


I can not tell you how much of a burden has been lifted just knowing that they made it through
 their first winter. I did a quick hive inspection and there is more than ample honey stores
 available and these little ladies are no less than thriving. We may just have a hive split this spring.

These warm days also mean lots of play for a certain cat celeb around here.
I told her she was a famous putty tat after yesterday's post.

She just gave me this look.

~Happy Thursday Friends!~

love your sheets pic, and sentiment. So true!

The chickens are beautiful. I think I need to let mine start free roaming.

Anke said...

Yes, spring seems to have arrived. Our temps have been in the mid 80's (not normal for this time of year) and we've spent as much time outside as possible.

How cool about your bees! I'd love to get a hive someday.

Love the pic of the sheets on the line. I hope my husband will fix our clothesline soon!

One of my favorite things . . . fresh outdoor dried sheets. . . . so yummy! I dry them outdoors, spring, summer, winter, fall . . . on our very large screened corner porch . . . The wind whips through and they dry beautifully.

Good "bee news!"

Congrat's to kitty celebrity.

Glad your bees made it through the winter. Your cat certainly does look like the celebrity lifestyle suits her well.
