This and that.

The application for the mortgage is in.  Now we wait.

The chickens are back to laying again! 

Fresh eggs anyone?

(!!!)

Late last week it got down to about 23 degrees overnight.  It has taken me five years of living here to figure out to fill the water buckets the night before, and then just break the ice the next morning!  WAY easier than hauling three gallon water buckets from the bathroom out to the goose run.

Recently, my friend Lori of Day by Day the Farm Girl Way wrote a post about how water freezes and its delicate nature  HERE

Well, there is certainly nothing delicate about these 3 x 3 inch quite pointy formations, now is there?  😉

How did that happen?

Polly has a secret.  Shhh…

And Frellnick is a very overprotective father to be!

He looks so threatening, doesn’t he?  But he is all show with me.  Georgie on the other hand has been getting his ‘tail feathers’ whupped this past week. 

Sadly, I have had to separate them again.  😦

In the meantime, I have finally calmed down from the excitement of new Farmlet buying.    So now I wait for a house appraisal, thoroughly CLEAN the aforementioned house in preparation for a very special visitor (who flies in for a weeks stay next month) and watch for Polly to begin setting in earnest!

So much is happening over the next four weeks! 

Don’t you agree?

 

It never rains but what it…

… POURS!  As in water gushing from the water main, and the geese are screaming  like they are under attack, so you rush out the door to find them flapping their wings and paddling in the puddle it had made!

Glad they are enjoying it!  We just spent over $1,000 to replace the electric water heater last month!  Since this is the third break in the line it seems prudent to replace it…

I asked the plumber if his company offered stock options.  It took him a minute, then he chuckled and said,

“No.”
