Sunday update

Today has been a busy day.....

First the geese are getting bigger.
such noisy creatures.

Sunday sky,
it never did rain though.
cleared up and got into the 60's.
We have Patches and Mac
living in our backyard.
(leasing the back pasture)
but in the meantime we get to enjoy them.
Hugo is going bonkers.
DH and Thing 2 moving the Chicken coop.
wait it is going to fall!

ok this is so much better.
(there is a dolly under the wooden box)

Sadly tonights chicken dinner contained these.
These are eggs.
i killed the wrong bird.
all day i was watching to see which one
was crowing.
but still managed to grab the wrong one.
This was one of my 6 roosters i bought last spring.

Well that is it for today.
think i will take things slow for tomorrow.

Monday update

Sunday was Elizabeth Zimmermann's birthday.
She has encouraged knitters to think for themselves.
which is much appreciated.

And now folks have asked....
this is the killing post.
have hung 4 birds from it.
this is one of the baby Barred Rocks.
was most delish.

Sunday dinners have been fresh chicken
with homemade buttermilk biscuits.
as i was plucking the last chicken,
was thinking about how relaxing it was
to pluck a bird.
then quickly followed that thought
with how warped i am if i thought
plucking was relaxing.

And now Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
DH was surprised that i picked them
both up at once.
(we need to put up baby gates
to prevent these two from entering the house).

and today was another sunny day...
71 F, Tot went into a wading pool out at DM's.
After I helped finish up the staining of the shed.
Am selling the eggs i gathered for $4.00 a dozen.
we are getting about 6 eggs a day.
