It’s been a busy day around here. OK . . when I say busy . . I mean busy for me, not what most folks would call busy.
We’ve been cleaning house getting ready for our little visitor coming soon. I am counting down the days!
I had to go out and check on the chickens twice because a hawk was bothering them so I rounded them all up and put them back inside their pen. It has a meshy cover over it so a hawk can’t get to them. I wish those hawks would leave my poor chickens alone. Don’t they know I’m not getting enough eggs as it is. While it isn’t fun to have a hawk out there, it’s so fun to watch the rooster doing his job. He makes a certain sound and the hens all go running for cover . . some under the trees, some under the coop but they know that when he sounds the alarm, they take cover.
We had ham, black eyed peas and cabbage. That should make us healthy, wealthy and wise in 2016, right?
I made bread. Can’t have leftover ham without white bread.
Actually, I got busy in the sewing room, forgot about the bread rising and it rose too long so I hope it doesn’t deflate when I stick it in the oven. The picture was taken while waiting for the oven to pre-heat.
Tonight, I guess we’ll sit and watch football . . well, it will be on TV but I’ll be knitting.
I don’t like to have a hawk hangin around my yard either but just because of the little birds. I had an owl take up residence in my owl house this morning and it was so funny to watch probably every bird from a mile around try to intimidate the owl. I have NEVER seen a bluebird in my backyard but they were everywhere taking turns fluttering at the entrance to the owl house. There was a robin pair, a cardinal pair, a blue jay pair and all kinds of other birds. They finally gave up mid-afternoon and split! 🙂 Even a couple of squirrels had to take a look see. LOL
Your meal looks exactly like mine, but without the homemade bread! Poor chickens. I hope that hawk stays away!

During the summer we have alot of bats flying around, and its really neat to watch them scoop up the bugs. I wish we would have a few other birds come around, this year the humming bird population was nile and none. The neighbors say its because of all the honey bees and fighting for sugar. I dunno but I sure miss them .
I hope that hawk stays away from your chickens. As my 9 year old grand daughter would say (with her fist in the air) Curse you hawk and stay away …
