Don't let the green grass fool you in the picture taken this morning at sunrise. Smoky skies have been hanging around for a few weeks. Things are drying up around here and elsewhere in the west. Devastating fires covering many western states have turned into infernos. Oldest son has been fighting fires for several months. First in Arizona .. and now a little closer to home in Southern Idaho.
I've been filling up the hummingbird feeders almost daily ... poor little birds are swarming looking for a drink.
A trip to Sandpoint to pick up our annual chicken order for the freezer. I don't think there is a bird under 7 pounds and many of them are close to 10 pounds. We ordered from a different farm this year and I was so surprised to see how BIG these birds are! Good thing I have a dedicated freezer just for chicken.

The ever labor intensive homemade Boston Baked Beans ... it's a once a year endeavor that I'm always happy to have completed.
