Around The House~ A Day In Pictures

Today, I added two old doors to my porch, and I am so excited with the results!
 I used a wood door and a screen door.  
I hooked the screen door to the porch rafters and filled the top of the door with lights.  I also wrapped a rafter with burlap and lights.

 This is a nice spot for reading my Bible on a cool morning.

 It sounds very peaceful with the water fountain.

 I used a chalk painter to write on the windows.

 To protect the glass windows during storms, I plan on using a black exercise mat on the back side of the windows.  If I can't find a black one, I will paint one.  I will cut it to fit behind the six windows.  I believe this will add a lot of protection since an exercise mat is at least 1/2 inch thick and it is made from a rubbery material. Besides that, it will look great behind the chalk art.
 I am so ready for cooler weather here in South Georgia! 
Yes, I know it isn't Fall yet, but I'm past ready for it!

 Evening makes it that much more beautiful!

Here are a couple of pictures of the front yard. This is a nice relaxing place to sit.  I love the swing, but you can easily overlook it in this picture.  Every time I swing, Cuddles finds his comfy spot inside the birdbath.  I need to rake and add a few Fall touches to this area.  I will post those updates later. 

Now, on to the 
Chicken Barn!
 I have been enjoying my new flock of chickens!  They have  gotten so healthy in the last few weeks!
Just look at this plump little hen!

I made this video on the day I got my new chicks.
 As you can see, one of my little cream color hen's tail feathers have grown back.
Sweet little hen sitting on a nest full.  I can't wait to see the new chicks! 
Waiting for another hen to start sitting this nest any day now. 

Ahhhh, how I love the simple life.
Enjoy this video that I made using a few pictures from around the house.

Well, that's a day in pictures. I hope you enjoyed them.
As usual, our cross is on.  I hope it will be a blessing to someone riding by tonight.
I thank the Lord for all His blessings.  We never know what tomorrow will hold, but life is worth the living because
HE lives
