Days go by...

And I don't take the time to post (doesn't mean I don't love you, dear blog!) I sit here with a purring cat on my lap and a barking pom that I should get up and silence (for the umpteenth time!). Why are little dogs so chatty? Oh well, he's a work in progress! No sewing yet, but a whole lot of knitting! Finished another pair of socks that were supposed to be for Tom, but I  need to tweak the pattern a bit to get that perfect fit that we all strive for. Why else knit socks if they are going to fit like store bought? Portable projects are important with traveling over to LaPine to work on the property. The slab is done and we are ready to start building! Having our own water source is a dream and of course, who needs an alarm clock when you have a friendly neighborhood rooster who will come to your front door to crow?
Talk about a wild hairdo! We call him Popeye. Here is Tom cleaning off the slab after the concrete was cut...Jo's helping:

Kodi approves of the LaPine homestead.  He also went into stealth mode and enjoyed some Popeye tailfeathers. Who knew the old boy still had game???
Well, I better get in gear and get something done before I head to work this afternoon. Tom hopes to do yardwork this morning, but the rain is still coming down...I hope to work in the sewing room...to be continued...

That rooster reminded me of how much I used to love going to the fair as a girl to see the roosters "with wild hairdos". A neighbour like that must put a smile on your face every time you see him.

DH calls these chickens "the ones with the Tina Turner hair". Personally I am a bit leery of roosters having had a couple of bad runins with them. My hens were delightful.

Bunny...I was pretty leary of him the first time I saw him because I too have had some bad experiences and this guy has some spurs on him! I was afraid he might hurt Jo, so I was carrying around a big stick. Popeye came right up behind me and scared the bejeezus out of me, but I soon realized that he really likes people and wasn't going to hurt us. He actually is pretty fun.
