It has been so easy to take photos and post pictures on Intsagram and Facebook with my phone that I have really neglected my blog. Taking time to write a post, however disjointed, is a birthday present to myself today. I’m 36 and that sounds old to me. It’s much closer to “late 30s” than “early 30s”. I can still claim “mid 30s”, though right?
The past two days have been super hot– high 80s with high humidity. The mornings are gorgeous. I should record the morning birds around here so that you can hear them. It is a full orchestra, I tell you! The woods we live in are bursting with life.
Logan found a newt on the walkway by our deck. Such a cute little red guy.
Our smallest chicken, Hunca-Munca, hatched 2 Cream-Legbar eggs last week. The chicks are super cute. It is so fun to watch the mama hen teach her babies to eat and explore. She has a language of clucks that say, “I’m right here,” and “I found something good to eat!” and other things I’m not quite sure what they mean. I’m really a chicken lady. I think I can honestly say they are my favorite pet I’ve ever had.
