this day

DSC_0001 DSC_0007 DSC_0008 DSC_0014 DSC_0019 DSC_0018 DSC_0025It 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.


One thought on “this day

  1. Love seeing how you are doing. Those chicks are awfully cute (does that mean you kept Cupcake?). Happy Birthday to you! I wish I could whisk you away for a day in the LA fashion district for some fabric shopping. Meanwhile, enjoy your beautiful Manassas mornings. Hugs to all!
