My younger daughter and grandkids are going to be visiting for a couple of weeks. As time allows I will continue to post.
All the rain has made for lots of green ivy. The plan was for the ivy to completely cover the wire fence and create an ivy wall. It has taken about eight years and most of the fence is covered with ivy or bushes. I like all the green.
Morgan is checking the tree for squirrels. She spends a lot of her day checking out the trees and tracing the squirrel scent tracks from tree to tree. Sometimes the squirrels will chatter at her which leads to her barking and then me yelling at her to "leave it."
The chickens are still locked up. It rained last night and is supposed to again today. The forecast is for warmer weather, but I don't believe the forecast anymore. I'll let the chickens out if the weather really does turn nice and the kids and I can stay outside with the hens. Hopefully, we will all be making enough noise to scare the fox away.
I'm going to have to make sure the kids stay out of the poison oak because you can get poison oak from the stems that are left over winter and the new growth is now coming up. I really, really, don't want them to get poison oak. It is a pretty plant and doesn't look dangerous. Here is a YouTube video about how to identify, guard against and treat poison oak, sumac and ivy. The video is not entertaining, but it does have some good information, photos and advice.
Kristine saw the therapist today, there is injury from the accident that will need care. We got our hair cut yesterday. Kristine got a trim, but my hair is really short. Maybe I could go to the barber next time. Wonder if that's cheaper?
I was planning on taking some photos when I was out, but the weather is so overcast there wasn't much point.
