Saturday Morning

This Saturday morning, I'm enjoying a cup of Bean Martin coffee and listening to the rain, hoping it will last all day. We can really use it as it has been extremely dry so far this Spring with a heavy pollen count. My head has been killing me lately, so a good rain will wash away some pollen and give me a break. Plus, I used every last drop of water in my rain barrel last weekend giving the vegetables a deep watering. Now it needs to be refilled and the plants could use another good watering. So rain, please stay all day. You are welcome at this house.

Earlier I took my weekly photo of the chicks. It amazes me how quickly they change in the matter of a few weeks.

Thelma has gone from this:

To this:

And Louise has gone from this:

to this:

Even though they are entering what I like to call their teenage awkward stage, I love watching them develop and grow feathers, knowing eventually they will provide us eggs and entertainment. Well they are already entertaining and very feisty. Nate says they are going to give Vanilli a run for her money. They are already trying to fly out of their brood box, so I had to put a top on it for now until they move to bigger digs.

I could sit and listen to the rain all day and knit, but the coffee cup is almost empty, so it's best I start my "chores" for the day.

Happy homesteading,
