Chickens By The Wood Stove

Click on photo to enlarge.

   The chickens had to stay in their coop today because it was raining all day and I didn't want to let Morgan out to watch the chickens because she would have become a muddy mess. I took this photo last week on a clear but cold day. The hens have discovered that they can come up on the porch and spend some time warming up next to the window close to the wood stove. Some of the chickens will even sit down next to the window and take a snooze. This restful scene lasts until Morgan makes an appearance and the hens run around. Though there are times I have spotted Morgan sleeping on the deck surrounded by chickens. Sometimes I wish I wore my camera on a cord around my neck so I didn't miss photo opportunities.

   Today I took the day off and just played around on the computer and thought about a lot of stuff I want to do when It stops raining in a day or two. Tom went down to be with his Mom. I didn't cook dinner because Tom was gone, Kristine had a teriyaki noodle bowl and I made myself chicken salad from left overs. Kristine said the noodle bowl was very good and she plans to pick up some more of them. It says it is an all natural Asian cuisine, no preservatives and no msg. Sounds good. Gee, and only 200 calories. Oh, well, no noodle bowl for me. I'm still on the no processed food kick. It is working and so far the migraines have pretty much gone away.

   I watched this TED talk here again (by Eizabeth Gilbert) today and found it just as meaningful if not more so than the first time I watched it months ago. There are some great TED talks, but I have never seen a speaker get a standing ovation before. I think we all have genius and this is a great way to relate to our creativity.

Mud is the worst part of melting. Or rain. I so agree with you.
