Busy Us

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I'm grateful for books!

This a photo from yesterday of Morgan watching the chickens. Kristine and I have decided that she does a great job of watching the chickens when we are there with her and the chickens. But she spends a lot of time looking for squirrels in the trees and laying on the back porch when she knows I''m on the computer near the back porch window. I didn't put in enough time training Morgan to watch the chickens all the time.

I spent the day cutting branches and making wreaths. It is a lot of fun, but my back hurts. We get Thanksgiving off and then back to wreath making. I think tomorrow I will get to do some wreath decorating. I wanted to take some photos today but it was too foggy and windy. I suppose I could have taken a photo of the fog. The sun should be out tomorrow.

I did pick up some florist wire today. Now all I need is some free time to work on my wreaths. I'm going to go to bed and read one of my C. J. Cherryh, Foreigner books. Early to bed and up again early to make more wreaths. I'm tired and not tracking real well. This post seems a bit disjointed.

It was very cold today, foggy, windy, rainy and we even had some snow. But no puddles on our property. Rain is forecast again for Sunday. Sun tomorrow. I feel bad for all the people who are suffering because of too much rain. We need the rain here!

I made chicken soup tonight for tomorrows dinner. Tom can heat it up on the wood stove so we can have dinner ready when I get home. Kristine is going to be visiting friends.

[One egg today]
I filled both the feeders with the new organic feed tonight.
Hope the hens like it.

Morgan is doing a good job of watching the chickens. I understand it is hard just watching chickens all the time. Everyone needs a nap every now and then.
