    Hamscher Homestead the Kitties Ohh lazy, Hamscher Homestead the kitties. I have to say it was a quiet week here on the homestead. See the lazy snuggles that Clyde was in on with Cuddles.

On Friday I was at an amazing leaders conference. However, Clyde was NOT excited about it. As you can see, he was all in the way. I truly am grateful for all that Stampin’…

The latest humidity too. This vine has started to produce some flowers. According to my ID app, it is a field pumpkin. However, I am not so sure. thoughts?? I can say whatever it is going to…

Thankful to have this area for fun off, as intended. Joe has been working on sloping the driveway. For just this kind of situation. Although he started working it in the winter. A couple years ago due to some crazy freeze thaw situation. No this is not the pond!! To…

    Another weeding week and Visitors A little catch up and Another weeding week and Visitors. Remember I wanted to keep up with those pesky weeds. Well we had fun over on Facebook. I had them time me to see how long it would take to get this bed cleaned back out. After 45 minutes and then the 30 that I added prior this side was all cleaned out. Now moving on to the other side. So this one was a much quicker job. 30 minutes to tell you the truth. However, it was only a small section but all around where the newest flowers where planted. Dontcha love those Milkweeds.…
