Thrown Together Scavenger Hunt

31 Jan

I have to admit, with things being so busy, I rushed to put together tonight’s post for Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  The items were:  Saturday Morning, I Made This, Keepsake, Number, and Sweet Tooth.

Saturday Morning.  I woke this morning to find that my poor injured hen had died.  It is a blessing that she is no longer in pain.  I also saw the ducks leave the farm this morning, and for the first time in about fourteen years, there are no ducks at Eden Hills.  I’m sad about the whole ordeal.  But life goes on, so I made Snickers his breakfast of poached egg.  I’m so glad my mom has loaned me her vintage egg poacher.

Sweet Tooth.  My nephew Brandon tells me that my chapel wine will cause cavities by drinking just one glass.  It might be sweet, but it is my favorite.    Since I didn’t want to set up a whole light stand for this picture, I’m also using it for Shadow Shot Sunday.

Wine and flower

I Made This:  I made the wine (well, my family and I), but I also made this soap.  My latest fragrances have been added to the on-line market.  They are Nag Champa and Neroli.

Number:  I carefully counted to six and nicked the seed coat and placed these louffa seeds in the water. Tomorrow I’ll plant them.  I’m really getting anxious to garden.  There aren’t many things I can start this early, but the gourds require a longer growing season than we have in Iowa, so I have to start them now.

Keepsake:  I have several feathers from my white peacock.  I do treasure them.  He was such a beautiful bird when he would show his plumage for the girls.  I do miss him.

This is the best I could do with the crazy week.  Hopefully, the coming week will be a bit calmer.

      Thanks, Jan. It was eerie quiet out there doing chores this afternoon without the ducks constant talking. I will miss them, but they had to go.

    Your poor hen did have a rough run. But i am sure she knew she was loved. The wine glass (and shadow) is so beautifully presented. And the feather looks so beautifully delicate and light.

    Very pretty pic of the wine in the glass! I like the way the shadow shows the color and the flower adds a really nice touch! The white peacock feather is lovely.
    I really feel badly for your poor hen, and sad for you, as well.

      Thanks, Jeanne. I thought I deserved a glass of wine last night. 😉

    I especially like the photo of the egg—so beautiful in its simplicity.

      It was a shock to me that the ducks would be so mean. It’s for the best that they are gone. My sister will give them a good home. Thanks.
