The temps are dipping and mornings are clocked in fog lately. The critters are not enjoying the earlier bad time because of the shorter days. Sorry guys, but predators lurk in the dark.
All of our hens are laying now! Nothing like having a stock pile of precious eggs. Time to start whipping us some great recipes, like Dutch Babies, that call for extraordinary amounts of eggs. It really does take quite a few eggs to make everyone in the family their very own Dutch Baby, and while ordinarily I hord my precious eggs, when we have this many, we celebrate with an amazing breakfast on the weekends.
So what made me smile this week?
My sweet Fifi enjoying the sunshine on her bum in the early morning dawn.
Lizzy the Leopard Gecko shed again. I think she looks like a bank robber with pantyhose over her head!
The ducks on their morning bug patrol. Leave no corner unchecked!
I saved this cool looking caterpillar off the window of a fellow parent at school pick up time. Yeah, I'm that weirdo that flags someone down to stop their car so I can save a caterpillar. I think he is just too cool looking.
Lazy bums who didn't want to get off the roost. I get it, I didn't want to crawl out of bed either.
The older girls have gone rouge and are laying in the straw bales, again. Guess we might need another nest box, or they just need to get along with the younger girls.
I told Buffy it was time to make breakfast.... I don't think she found it funny. LOL
Cute little country boys grow up to break hearts. I think we might be in trouble.
Take me to a Halloween store and I can still find something country, even if it is creepy!
Ester was not impressed with her new flock mates and was relieved when I told her they were getting a transformation. I love DIY Halloween decoration projects. Check back next week to see how they turned out.
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
