Here are my latest squirrels. Mastering a particular animal takes a lot of practice in various positions. I think I mastered chickens and mice, but I want a squirrel story next.
Punkin has been unwell. For quite a while she's had messy bum feathers, and then she stopped laying. I was worried she was egg-bound (an egg stuck inside her that needs to come out).
I meant to do the Spa Treatment five mornings in a row, but this morning she hid in the very back of the coop, very still. "If I don't move, that farm lady can't see me," she was thinking. She's all cleaned up, and since she doesn't seem egg-bound, I'm leaving her alone now. I'll give her some ground calcium later, which should help her too.
Getting back to painting, herbs, and chickens is making my world feel normal again. Now I must get back to writing too, but that's the hardest one, the most emotionally taxing. I hope your October is dreamy and beautiful, and everything you've been waiting for as we've anticipated fall! It's my favorite month, but I do wish it were a bit cooler this year. See you 'round the bend!
