When this old world starts a getting us down, and people are just too much for us to face.
We’ll climb way up to the top of the stairs and all our cares just drift right into space.
On the roost, it’s peaceful, you can trust…and there the world below don’t bother us, no, no.
So when we begin feelin’ tired and beat, we’ll go up where the air is fresh and sweet. We’ll get far away from the hustling crowd and all the rat-race noise down in the wheat. On the roost, that’s the only place we know, look at the country, baby. Where you just have to wish to make it so, let’s go up on the roost.
And at night we cozy up and get in close. And, darlings, we are getting too verbose…so we’ll just end by telling you That right smack dab on the edge of the woods, we found a paradise that gives a boost. And if this old world starts a getting us down, there’s room enough for six up on the roost, up on the roost, up on the roost.
The Chicks wish to thank The Drifters and James Taylor for their inspiration ; )
A year ago today we arrived at our new home. Bleary-eyed and sleep deprived, we drove up our long driveway at 2:00 a.m., through a blanket of fog, to see our long planned for house emerge before us. It was a beautiful and welcome site and we have enjoyed our new environment more than we ever dreamed.
Looking back – we’ve accomplished a lot!!
We planted 12 apple trees.
We took apart our porch
…and screened and enclosed it…
We fenced and planted a vegetable garden
…and, reaped the harvest
We went on picnics
We welcomed some baby chicks and watched them grow (and we are patiently anticipating their eggs)..
We had plenty of cucumbers to make a batch of pickles
We enjoyed wonderful visits with our family and friends…
We started a blog – yay!
We’ve seen the seasons change…
And, we made a magnificent new bff…
Well – most of us did…
Thanks for sharing our year and for your comments along the way. We’ve got big plans for more progress and more memories and we hope more visits from family and friends!!
