more critters

today got more chickens.
these are layers
and now animal count is 19.

the geese don't like sharing quarters with
the new chickens so i engineered
something for them tonight.
during the day they free range now.
DH about grossed out when he saw
the new chickens rooting around under
the rabbit hutch.
I then closely watched one chicken,
and it had discovered a cornucopia of worms.
guess the soil there is excellent.

weekly pic of Thankful
and roosters
(the hole in the corner is from Hugo).

we got hail.
the ground was white.

Summer Solstice

Our Solstice Sky...
much of the day was spent
with rain showers.
we did have fun.
the first Tomato of the year...
Bumpkins took some convincing to eat it though.
then thought it was delish.

We got some new pets a couple of weeks ago....
here they are just brought home.

African Geese

and here they are today....

Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

and last weeks sky.

sorry forgot to take weekly pics of rabbits and chickens.
planted broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower.
(hoping all goes well as my garden is in 20 days late).

Knitting: started a pair of fingerless gloves for me. was hoping to finish up one tonight. but have a bad headache and no motivation.

DH is busy gigging today and last night. Yesterday his Christian band Savant opened for KDLL radio station annual Solstice Party. Big event, parking and booths were in the pasture (yes step out of car into pile of horse poo). Then last night and tonight his Rock Band Danger Pig played out at a bar called Moosequitos. On top of that this evening there was a gig at St. Elias Brewery, best pizza in town.

so hope everyone is doing well.

(bumpkins did think ewww... when
one of the bunnies peed on a chicken).

well i had a week off of work
and i played at home.
obviously i didn't blog or read blogs.
didn't finish my garden either.

Tuesday we decided it was a nice enough day
so lets go to the beach.
it was cold and windy.
Hugo didn't like the water to much.
(until we started throwing things in it for him).
and then these guys decided to get a close up of Hugo.
Stellar Sea Lions.
(we leashed up Hugo quickly
and didn't let him go play with these guys).

Wednesday it was nice 70+ F
