Storming out there tonight at Calamity Acres, not a strong storm, though the wind came up. A gentle Spring storm, and we needed the water very much.
We did chores together tonight, Keith and I, mostly so we could talk. Next week he will be gone to a training far from here, on the Colorado border. Tonight he carried water for me, and asked me how I would do it next week, with my bad back. When he isn't here, I only fill the buckets a little, and make more trips. It takes longer, but it gets the job done. There is lots of lightening out there, so I am going to make this brief, and then get to bed early with the little girls. (pugs!)
Here is Keith collecting our eggs from the ceiling tiles:
I got lovely eggs from the big henhouse, both large and small. I found a beautiful egg from my Polish girl Buffy in the nest box, but when I picked it up, I realized it had been broken. I think the two red girls are eating eggs daily, I am not finding their own anymore. I am going to have to clean the nest box out, as it is smelly from the cracked eggs.
Here's is today's haul:
Large and small, we love them all!
