One of my favorite Beatles songs... that dates me, doesn't it?
That's what this post is, a little of everything.
Here are some pictures sent to us by Keith's sister Kim... who was hit with Nemo this past weekend...
They don't have a snow blower, either... that was shovelin', folks.
I'm glad they are okay.
I hope you can see the robins in this somewhat dim picture taken from inside the house. They were drinking and cleaning themselves where water had pooled in the yard.
There are six in the picture!
My guardians were at the door, and I'm not afraid when Keith is at work because of it.
I found these two in the now unused nest box in the little henhouse, the one I wrote about a few weeks ago. Now I know why there are so many feather in it.
There are only the five little roosters living in the little henhouse, now.
Here's the pony pen with the gate up. Someone asked last night why I did not make the fencers take the fence down and do it right... my answer is, if I was planning on putting an unbroken full size horse in it, I probably would have asked them to remake it. As it is, I don't anticipate anything other than two ponies or a pony and a mini donk in it. I don't anticipate either of those to be unbroken and wild, either, so I think it will serve it's purpose. Keith is going to strengthen it, if need be, with some boards inside, and drive a few more poles if he feels we need it. I am waiting for a few good days in a row, and then I'll dump the spoiled hay in the llama feeder, and move it out of the way... and clean up the soiled straw that was broken down by the chickens over the last few months. We'll stock up on straw and make it ready for new occupants.
Deweena at "Across the Way" has asked several times how my sore throat was doing. I am happy to say it's well and truly gone... and I have MaryDon at Blushing Rose to thank for it.
Last week, MaryDon posted some simple home remedies from days past. One was using warm water, with honey and lemon in it, to help your sore throat get better. I went out that afternoon and bought some honey, as we were out. I began using it that day, and, within two days, the soreness was gone and has not returned. I am so grateful because it was the worst I had had for a while, and was painful to even swallow.
Today, I read a wonderful blog post from here, at Fitzgerald's Family Farm.
I so envy this post... because Sharon has been able to get her own riding horse after wanting one for many years. She didn't just go buy a horse, either, she has adopted a horse rescued from a sad situation, and given it a new lease on life. She was careful in how she did it, and now she is set to have a happy partnership with the horse, who is picture in the post... please go read about (and see) Lady Bella Mellini here, and yes, there are pictures.
And here, at the end, I pose a question to everyone...
who takes the pictures of the house numbers on the Recaptcha when you set your blog to require
it? I mean, some are obviously street signs and house numbers... has anyone ever seen someone wandering down their street with a camera, pointing it at the house numbers????
That's it for today from Calamity Acres!
