Chickens free-range all day, every day now.
It's so pretty outside.
Here's Sylvie, the broody hen. She has 7 eggs now. I've marked them with blue pen (a color chickens don't see well, so she won't reject them) so I know to leave those 7 and remove any more than the hens lay for her, and bring the newer ones inside.Adam went to a Red Cross blood drive today.

I'm still knitting. I love this blue.
I plied the handspun alpaca yarn. That's an avocado pit - it turns the yarn purple.
I'm trying to paint a little every day. Here are Mr. and Mrs. Mouse.
And another shout-out for homemade salves. Below is a little tub of lip balm that's been in my car for about 2 years. It's made of only coconut oil, beeswax, and peppermint ess. oil. And it's as pure and wonderful as I day I made it. Preservatives are not needed in products like this.
Buttercups are blooming now in the pasture.
We planted strawberries in a small raised bed.
When Adam left for the blood drive, the puppies sat on the couch looking like this:
And how about some videos to watch? Would you like to hear "Punkin and the Littlest Mouse"? Read aloud? I made a youtube, complete with illustrations and a song at the end. Sit and share it with a child you know :)
