Bad Moth!

Our chickens are free ranging, roaming around eating bugs and things. One of those rascals has been laying eggs in the herb garden.  I did not  find them until this morning. There are 16 eggs that will now make the big dogs happy.  Happy! happy! happy!

All Good!

A chicken baking in the oven, a poodle asleep at my feet, rain pounding on the window, it is good, all good.

This morning, very early, I spotted two lambs, our big orange cat, and several geese all drinking out of the stock tank at the same time.    It was beautiful and special. It is one of the reasons that I get up early and enjoy living in the country.  There was peace, and quietness all around […]
