Feeling the Country Today

Felt very country today. We received the 150 year old piano we nabbed from the In-laws and had fixed up. It fits into this old house so nicely and fits in with my Von Trapp Family idea that our kids will play the piano....and like it.

Also baked me up some homemade strawberry pie from scratch with berries outta grandma's garden.
ll I need is some homemade whip cream to go with it....but we won't go there.

AND... To top it all off, I found these six homemade, hand stitched ultra girly Anne of Green Gables like napkins for practically nothing at a thrift store.
(Is it just me, or does the above pic. make you dizzy?).....I digress.

Yes. It ALMOST makes me want to go outside and weed my garden tonight. Almost. But not quite. To be completely honest I'm not sure what is a weed and what is a plant at this point so I figured I would just let it all grow and see which wins out....or produces a vegetable. No I'm not kidding. And no you are not getting pictures...it is embarrassing.

FYI.... We now have 3 Calves, and the MEAT chicken's (as day old chicks) are coming tomorrow.
Yes I'll have pics for y'all soon.

Nothin' like a good old fashioned pie to bring out the country in the girl. Me, I just eat the strawberries. I like them to much to put them in a pie!

What a fun thrift store you must have!

My flower beds are in exactly the same condition as your garden! (our garden is hubby's job this year ~ HIS idea! ~ and he's done a remarkable job of keeping it looking very neat and, well, you know, weed-free.)

Mmmmm, I need to get me some strawberries and make a pie, too. Man, in some ways this is the WRONG time of year to have started Weight Watchers!! Thank goodness for yardwork! (and no, I can hardly believe I actually said that either!)

If I had even 1/4 of the energy you have, I'd be rockin.
I feel like a sloth next to you.

That would probably be my approach to weeding a garden, too!

Love the llama in the header. Great picture!
