We Are Keeping Quite Busy

The last week has been madly filled with work at home, getting the house and property in good repair while the weather was dry.

The Home Butler plan is going very well: everything in its place and everyone on their best behavior, as Emma would say.

As you can see, it is our dry spell here, and here is a photo of a lovely barn across one of the farm roads.  

I hope to take time soon to talk to you all. Thank you for your comments!

Dear Lydia, it sounds like you truly are very busy! Are you still living in the extreme heat?Our summer in Alabama has been highly unusual in that we have had very mild temperatures and afternoon thunderstorms almost every day.
I do look forward to your next video - I miss you and your pleasant visits!

Very hot and dry, smoke in some parts, swarms of bees looking for any small amount of water.

oh the poor you have a bird feeder with water? They might use that.

Love listening to your videos and seeing photos of your dresses. I get lots done listening, but pause and listen more earnestly when being home-schooled. Please do more of homeschooling. I want it more then chocolate! Did I just say that out loud?

Dear Lady Lydia

Since a couple of weeks I have been listening to and watching your sublime video gifts. I am a 46 year old stay at home mother from... Belgium. In our country it's not so easy to find kindred spirits and inspiring Christian women. I am so thankful for discovering your blog and beautiful lifestyle. I hope my English (I speak dutch) is not too bad and send you and your dear ones warm greetings from Flanders. Thank you for all the effort and please do keep making these virtual vitamins.

I was thinking of you when the heat was about. I hope you and Mr stayed cool. The fires are not good and the smoke makes it so much worse.
Hope you'll get some rain soon.

If you have a puddle or birdbath or anything with water in it, put some small sticks in it sticking out and across it so the bees can land and get water. So many drown trying to get water because they have nothing to land on. Poor bees - we do what we can to help save them.

Thank you for the good hint!
