morning time on any given saturday in this house is fairly laid back. laid back meaning we stay in our pajamas or yesterday's clothes for most of the day. we spend the morning time outside with the animals, tending to the garden and working on outdoor projects. we eat a late breakfast and forget to brush our teeth until late afternoon. we do saturday chores and listen to records until we decide we've had enough of this old house and venture out for some fun and good food.
here are some photos of this saturday morning...
while we do our morning chores, feeding the dogs, poopie scooping, feeding and watering the chickens, watering the garden, picking weeds and watering the potted plants and flowers birdie likes to play in the water. she scoops water from one pail to the next with her little blue bowl. it's her own routine. we encourage her to help us out with chores, which she does but as soon as she's done she runs back over to her water station. and let's just take a moment to appreciate that girls bed head.
julian wasn't in the mood for pictures this morning. i don't blame him, i am rarely in the mood for photos myself these days. he's getting older, will be twelve in september. i am curious to see how much he wants to or does not want to be involved with mama's blog as he gets older. i think it's totally cool if he chooses not to partcipate much or at all for that matter. it is his decision and i will gladly respect that.
this is our chickens new home. they seem to be loving it. plenty of leg room and a nice nesting area upstairs for when they want to be alone. if you look closely you may notice a few scratches on the front of their new house. one of our dogs, popcorn aka the weasel, has been trying to get inside. she was pretty determined the first week or so but is finally starting to lose interest. this is good.
my favorite candle burning while we listen to records, start our inside chores and make breakfast.
i love saturday mornings.
