We are having bigger problems than my dry garden this spring.
Our pastures are so dry that we are already feeding hay to the cows! Poor girls, there’s just not much to eat out there!

First, there’s Orleans. He’s pretty happy hanging out on top of what has become “his box.” (He’s going to be mad at me if I get around to unpacking it!)

The nice thing about not a lot of rain? There’s not a lot of weeds! Of course, it’s hard on the plants we want to keep around, so I guess I would prefer some rain now and then…
We plant a combination of seeds and plants. This dry weather has been really hard on our garden. I’ve been going out about every other day to water the plants, but I just can’t keep up with the rows of seeds. They’re sort of on their own.
Most of the tomato plants are doing pretty well. I’ve not given up hope yet!

I love the blue accent wall against the soft gray of the other walls. Would you believe this is a queen-size bed? This room is so big it dwarfs our large furniture.

kitchen, the master bedroom, and my home office. My office is on the front corner of the new addition. It is the only “bedroom” on the front of the house with two windows. And it gets a great cross breeze!

Sadie is part Husky. She is incredibly fuzzy.
We had a small porch on our old house, and Sadie never came up the steps. I’m not sure she knew how. And she has bad hips (she’s around 12 years old), so it was hard for her to climb steps. Now she’s on arthritis medication every day (and feeling great!). And Buddy came over not too long ago. He taught her how to climb steps.

After almost six weeks, I am finally feeling like we are pretty well settled in. If nothing else, the house looks “lived in” now…
We set up our fish tank set in the hallway next to the kitchen. This is also where three of the four cats get fed. We only have one fish in that tank right now… he is the lonely trooper who survived the move to the apartment and back. We need to get him some new friends now that the tank is in it’s final place.
