This will be the post in which I ramble on about random happenings in our life. Forgive me. This particular post is more for me than you. I'm marking mile stones. Taking notes. Should you be interested read on. Should you have other priorities I fully understand.
First off today my chickens laid eggs. Green eggs! I have been waiting, waiting, waiting for this day and feared it would never come. The chickens arrived last fall (October? November?) and I've been waiting ever since. Today was the day. Not one but two green eggs. Yippee!
This week is also the week I have been transplanting my tomato seedlings. They are being moved up into their big girl pots. This is quite an experiment for me as tomatoes are difficult to grow in my region. *Fingers crossed* I hope to have a bumper crop come late summer/fall.
I also managed to bring home a new chicken. She is a Golden Laced Wyandotte that was attacked by a dog. Rather than euthanize her the owner signed her over to our clinic. My colleague was kind enough to stitch her up. As she is missing most of her back feathers I knit her a sweater.
Yes. You read right. I knit her a sweater. I honestly have no idea what we'll do with her after she heals. I don't know if we'll be able to integrate her into our already established flock. I suppose time will tell. As you can see from the photo above she is quite comfortable around people. Now dogs -- not so much. I can hardly blame her.
And finally my neighbor's wonderful fragrant lilac-like tree is in bloom. I snuck a little cutting to give to friends. Oh how I love that things are starting to look like spring!
I've been quite busy with tomatoes, chickens and bees and such and have thus been ignoring the dishes and laundry. Shall we just say the mister is none too thrilled. Ah well. Such is life. He is quite skilled in said arenas.
And now I must go. I am using the girls' computer as mine had decided it is quite done with this world. The girls are breathing over my shoulder wanting to use their machine.
Fortunately my mother has come to my rescue and is gifting me a new computer for my upcoming 40th birthday. Indeed I am a lucky girl.
