5:30 AM

Well last night a dog kept me wide awake....I had made BAD coffee to boot.

Now for yesterdays photos.
I finished the last 9 flats of strawberries...
I can not bare to count...my body said it was plenty & the counter is full of wonderful jars of jam....
I will go to post office to send a pack to our friend in Cashmere and a very special girl in LA....

The total feed count came to just under 80 bales that I went to the fields to get...between the delivered feed and the stuff I went and got we have just over 100 bales. Enough for awhile.....You see if we run out and we have to go to a feed store the bales run at $14.00 plus for one bale.....or if we go get it is just $4.00 a bale....too many times this last year we ended up with expensive feed that well frankly was just down right bad....so after a friend told us about Ken Danielson and his almost 400 acres we knew we would be able to round up some better feed...I did manage to hit one of the pots full of flowers and made it explode.....poor plant, poor pot.....all part of the cost of feed...you see I rented a trailer and could not manage to back it up correctly....such is life

The garden shed also finally got the windows in.....hubby has been hard at work 10 hour days plus the hour each way ...so I took it upon myself to install and frame in the four windows, sealed and painted them all befor hubby got home.....it would be impossible to stop me if it was already done....

Last night after I posted I saw this rainbow, mind you we had no rain, several minutes after I took a photo or too it started to rain....I ran for the cover and struggled with the tarp , hubby got out of bed and saved me and we got it covered....he muttering under his breath about it raining in JUNE.... I stayed up long enough to watch the light show and enjoy the colours in the sky....

We also got to eat the first harvest of spinach...yummo!

This mornings breakfast will be toast and jam.......the bread is just to hold the jam......have a wonderful day....I willbe mowing this afternoon after i knock out several more necklaces as they will be going to market on Saturday....photos to follow....
