My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

WIND A-GUSTIN

Massive wind storm today. Poor little chicks.

I have a pen of chicks in the goat pen, in their own separate 6x10 dog kennel. Last weekend I put in another 5 chicks in there, all about half the size of the others in there, so they were being picked on. Hadn't seen them in 2 days so I assumed they were either eaten or hiding. Yesterday was the first decent day so I let the older chicks out and closed the gate. Within minutes, the 5 little chicks came out of hiding. They got a chance to eat and drink without being bullied.

Did the same thing today. Glad I did. The wind gusts out here are close to 40 mph. The older chicks and the adults in a separate area are barely able to withstand the forces.

OOOh. Sounds like a star wars thing.

Sorry.

Still no goat babies from CC or Honey. Come on girls!

My kid got his schoolwork done in record time today. As I slept off the migraine (ok, part of it), he would finish an assignment and place it on top of me. Rolled over and all these things fell off of me. He's hilarious sometimes.

Got several chicks still available for sale. I called a lady in Colorado Springs yesterday and gave her the go-ahead to find a puppy for my Kid. Hoping that by the time she finds one, we'll have raised the $1,000 down payment. Meanwhile, I have lots to do to get this house ready for a puppy. Fun fun. Of all days for a migraine to hit.

Guess that's it for now. Time to collect eggs and fry them up. Yum!
