Getting to walk

YA YA I have started to walk with out my crushes and my cane the DH have made for me. My ankle is still blue, green, and yellow and I still do not have a ankle on ether side but I can walk a little on it. I went to the Dr yesterday to get my allergy shot. I am doing better with them. I got bee stung three year ago an learned the hard way that I was deadly allergic to them. So now I go once a month to get my shot. I am going to try to go to work tomorrow and work all day.
I am still working on the Berry's and will post later on them.
We are also working on cutting hay I did not get to go with DH yesterday but maybe soon.

Relay for Life

I have been helping a good Friend on her Relay for Life at the SWCC collage today. I have been making apple pies

This what they looked like after they have been fried I was hoping to make 100 but I did not have all the apples caned that I needed so I had 88.I started with the biscuit dough

then I rolled out the dough and add the apples

Then I a fold over the dough and seal the edge

then I would fry them until they got brown then I would let them cool. We took them all over to the collage and they will be there all night. I hope they do good I did not get to stay but I helped where I could.
My Mom called and wanted to know if I wanted some raspberry's my uncle picked 5 gal and said I could have a gal if I wanted them so next post I will show you them.

Let the Girls out

I let the girls out yesterday and they had a good day. They did not get in the flowers and stay away from the garden. They took care for all the bugs and other things that are out there. They have been so good. We get about 6 to 9 eggs a day they have been on vacation for the last mouth. They were laying 19 eggs ad day, I have 20 hens and 2 roos. The one in this pitcher is Jasper he is the lover out of the 2 roos Buster is the bully. They are 1 year old to day. I got them when they was 3 days old and they have grown a lot the 2 roos are about 7 to 8 pounds, and the hens are from 4 to 6 pounds each.

They are so funny if any thing flew over they will all run under the peach tree and stand looking up but mum is not far looking out for them, Minxs thinks she is there mum she has been watching out for them from day one. She will lay around watching them and if a stray dog comes in the yard she will run it out. They let her come in the coop and lay around. They are soo funny.
Got to go now and see what I can do to day from a sitting down. Not what I would like to do but if I stay good (please God help me) I might get to work out side today . By for now.

We have been trying to cut hay for the past couple of weeks and we have had rain 24 days out of the past 30. Thank God we have not had any flooding. Just too wet to cut hay. We hope to try to cut some this week.I will not get to help I had a little OOPS an Friday me and my little blue shoes that I love DH hates had a little problem on the hill and now I am laid up with a sprain. So I hope if I am a good girl (HA HA) I will get to help.
