That there picture was taken right out my (dirty) kitchen window!
Right before I ran out brandishing a broom.
(not my good one, of course)
I'm still not sure if I'm glad the blasted coyote ran off when he heard me coming or not.
I really wanted to hit him!
But I wasn't too thrilled with the thought he might just snatch my broom
and come after me.
Fortunately, my chicken survived his attack
with just the loss of a bunch of fluffy butt feathers.
Friday was supposed to be date night,
but we had to cancel due to sickness in the ranks.
Poor Lex' is our most recently fallen.
I am really hoping I don't get sick, 'cause it's my week with Gramma.
Every day, there is more and more green outside,
and lots of ground-flowers are blooming.
It's been a long winter.
I'm going to have to get Tyler's quilt finished up pretty quick-like;
it's going to be too hot to work under it before ya know it.
Speaking of quilts ~ I got my new book Saturday, and started reading it yesterday.
I like it every bit as much as I expected I would.
It's not exactly going to be a quick project though.
And I really sort of wanted a quick project
for when I finish this one.
We have been averaging 1 1/2 dozen eggs a day.
During the winter!
I calculated that if we had sold, for $2.50 a doz,
all the eggs we've given away in the past few weeks,
it would have paid for the feed.
(I'm not entirely sure what to do with that.)
That man I married?
I like him a lot.
