What a splendidly beautiful December day it was today!
And we took full advantage niceness.
And by we, I really mean all the ones who did outdoor chores,
hence, no photos of the younger quad of children.
Our kitty cat, Dino, disappeared for a few days...
and we thought for sure he had become brunch for a coyote or two.
But, no! He showed up today, all hungry and happy to see us. And we were equally as happy.
And the chickens were loving getting out of their coop, where they're been cooped up!
The temps really dropped low recently, and I'm here to tell you that these
feathered females do not like the coldness one bit.
But they sure loved today!
Remember back when I told you my suspicions of Zeke giving one of my hens a heart attack,
but I had zero evidence except a dead chicken buried in my mulch?
Well, looky here:
He didn't hurt THIS one...but he sure did scare the dickens out of her.
And this concludes my investigation of the Poultry Murder Mystery.
Poor Zeke, he really needs a friend.
"Midge, are you okay under there?"
This is Betty, my teeny tiny feather-footed hen. She's the sweetest little thing.
And can she ever FLY. When Zeke heads towards her, she just takes off up into the nearest tree.
Awesome! Way to go, Betty!
Oh, and we had loads of fun when one of our lateral lines got clogged and sewer
water backed up into our basement (AGAIN). Grossssss.
So glad I have a handy-man husband who can fix such things.
And look, here he is dressed up as a tree riding a tractor. Hahaha.
That's Nick supervising the project.
Manly men doing manly chores.
I love that.
And that concludes the bulk of the excitement for this Sunday on our homestead!
I hope you all enjoyed your day of rest as well!
