Sunday at the Author's House
Yesterday was a beautiful spring day from the time Casanova woke me up crowing outside my bedroom window at 5:30 am. It was a landmark day because the little shit hadn't crowed since I brought him home a couple months ago. Hopefully, that means he will also start doing what I need him to do...so the hens will quit going next door to visit the roosters over there. Shameless hussies they are.
With the weather so beautiful, it was hard not to want to do some gardening However, the ladies at the garden center said we are supposed to get snow tonight so they cautioned me from planting outside unless I planned on bringing the pots inside today. Not like there was anything left of them after the chickens got hold of them. So, now I know marigolds do not deter hens...because they eat the damned things. Hopefully, we will get the new chicken run up before it's time to get super serious about landscaping and planting. As much as I wanted to free range them, it's just not going to be possible in the middle of growing season. Not to mention, I need to move the big hens so I can go get the new chicks and put them in the smaller coop.
We started this morning at a sunny and warm 64 degrees...long enough for me to work on the shade bed I'm preparing out back beneath the library window. Then the wind and rain moved through and the temperature dropped ten degrees. I went from having the air conditioning on yesterday while I painted the dining room to having the heat on now to take the chill out of the house. This redecorating is a slow process, but hopefully doing a little bit every day it will eventually look the way I want it to.
Today, I am taking a break from painting and gardening and cleaning to sit down and finish the book I"m reading and work on my own book. If you are looking for a spine chilling series, I highly recommend the Porter's Hollow series by Yvonne Schuchart. I just finished up Book 3 and cannot wait to move on to the next one. However, I got two new books delivered this week that I need to get started on as well. If you've been following me on here, you know that I'm a spiritualist, clairvoyant, herbalist and do spell work because I was a Druid in a past life. So, my reading material is varied at times. I just received Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza and The Holistic Guide to Wellness by Nicole Apelian Ph.D. I am definitely going to need a new set of bookshelves because I have books everywhere!! After I fix some lunch, I'm going to do some research on a new moon spell that I ran across and might use in my newest book...or in real life...one never knows! I even have all the things I need to do it except for some black cat hair.
The dogs are asleep on the sofa and it's time for me to eat and get back to researching and writing while I listen to Celtic Fiddle music on Pandora
. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
