Check out what came to visit us in our pond today:
Mommy and daddy goose and 6 little wee ones! SO CUTE! They swam very close to me when I went out there to feed them. They hung around for hours and were still there when we (unfortunatley) had to leave to come back to Atlanta for a few days.
Then, we had another visitor a few days ago:
Mr. King snake. Check out how big he/she is!! He/she hung around all day then came back to lay on top of our azalea bush the next day. The dogs were freaking out but they eventually got over it.
Then look what we found in our yard today:
Yep, he/she left us a present. Check out the size of this snake! We figure that between Mr./Ms. King snake, our cat and our fearless hunting daschund dog - we should never see a rodent.
We planted our garden and put up a fence around it:
Checked on our growing baby birds:
Checked on the tadpole progress:
Finished the floor in the bathroom (complete with all quarter round cut and stained by ME!! Woo hoo -I'm learning!)
Finished the floor in the kitchen and put in the celing fan:
Finshed the floor in the downstairs bedroom:
Started the floor upstairs:
Put in our dog fence:
Oooops - forgot to take a picture of that
Worked on a sock for hubby (after all - this IS a knitting blog, right?):
Organized and inventoried the yarn and roving I have for Amia Yarn Company so far:
AND.............MADE YARN BOWLS!!!!
We will be able to start firing and glazing them soon.
And picked up a BUNCH of trash out of the yard and pond. And we built a dam in the creek and got our pond up to full capacity - yay!
Now it's time to load up the rest of our stuff and head back to Blue Ridge one last time. We sure are going to miss this house in Tucker - it has been VERY good to us, but we are loving our new surroundings. Everyday is like an adventure and you feel like you can't even step outside the front door without a camera!
