It’s raining lightly today – my chickens won’t mind staying in the barn – I’m probably saving their lives because something is killing them again. Yesterday Keeper brought me a very recent chicken foot from the area between the barn and the grove. And I recently noticed one of the “twins” was missing as well as my count being off. It makes my heart hurt. Maybe I should not have chickens anymore or maybe I should get a greater number so I don’t know each one personally. If I have chickens I want to see them in my yard, not locked up in the barn like commercial egg layers. Does anybody think the owl or hawk would go elsewhere is I keep them locked up for a bit? He’d need a meal and wouldn’t he look elsewhere? I am heartbroken and torn about knowing if I can have chickens in the future.
I started cutting the pumpkins off the vines yesterday – I hope it quits raining this afternoon so I can cut the rest of them before tomorrow when the kids come to load them.
My friend Lora has several dog beds that I’d like to pick up today – her German Shepherd named Baron died this week and she’s kind enough to offer the beds to me.
My cleaning lady came yesterday so the rainy day is mine to enjoy! Hope you can enjoy yours, too.
Remember this tablerunner made by Donna?
I loved it and yesterday I got this box in the mail – Donna’s scraps from the runner!!! Thank you, Donna – maybe this is what I should sew on today?
It’s a lazy day – even Three agrees.
