Rushing to get through a most excellent dinner... Keith splurged on steak and then grilled it to absolute perfection! Dishes are finished, and I am going to sit back on the couch with Abby and watch
The Secrets of Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey), Endeavour, and Call the Midwife, in reruns, on PBS. The perfect Sunday evening.
We had good temps this weekend, but I was worn out after the rigors of the week in the heat, I admit it.
When I went in the old henhouse, I was not paying attention:
Can you believe this guy???? He stayed there still for several minutes, to be sure I was not going to do anything to him. The chickens totally ignore him at this point.
Look who followed me up on the porch! Aren't they getting big?
They had all three dogs pretty excited, but don't worry, we watch them like hawks.
I started chores, but I missed Kaycee somehow. When I started back, this is what I found. Don't worry, we don't eat off that table either, unless it's cleaned. And that's vinegar in the spray bottle. (weeds).
Kaycee has a real affinity for Keith.
Don't forget to scrub your feed and water bowls out from time to time in this heat.
And don't forget to blow hoses that have been sitting in the sun out, so that the hot, hot water in them doesn't get poured into your animal waterers.
I swear, I need to pay more attention.
I had moved the step stool I keep here for the hens to hop up into the nursing/laying cage. There are now only two hens laying in this house.
Once I put the step stool back, he went on down to the floor.
A friend, Angela, who is a reader here, sent me pictures today of a blogpost where the blogger captured snakes in her henhouse in minnow traps. My gosh, five of the pictures were of copperheads!
I would be absolutely petrified to come face to face with one. In fact, I am seriously considering getting some short Ariat or Justin boots to wear daily while doing chores
I hope everyone has had a great weekend... and a good start to the new week. Waiting to hear how Donna is doing... and hoping she is feeling better already.
