Chickens Forest Foraging

There are chickens out there amongst the trees following me as I spent some time this morning raking the driveway clear of leaves.

Pretty funny... I'm raking leaves and they are scratching them up putting large divots all over the place. So quiet... just scratch and rustle noises. Chicken herd passing through?

Things have started to dry out a bit, but there is rain forecast for Wednesday which will make it a day to work on the quilts.

Morgan is going to the groomer... OK... she is back and I'm cold, sleepy, ....going back to bed. Only place I can get warm... alright, that's an excuse.

Kristine just came home and woke me up and let Morgan out. We spent the afternoon asleep. Not getting anything done, but we were warm. Had to put on the little heater.

Morgan's groomer trip left her at least four shades lighter... smells nice too. I tried to get a photo of her standing, but every time I pointed the camera at her she laid down. Taking her photo causes her stress? I gave her cookies after to make up for the trauma.

I will be so happy for some warm weather. Hopefully, my energy will come back. Well, back to sewing and listening to QI.

This would be a great way to start off the day. I'll have to find a cd of this song or I could always just play this video every morning. Love the children!

Hi Callie,
Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I`m enjoying reading your blog now and will come back to look at your older posts.
I would love to have chickens, but the fox family who live across the field would soon have them for supper!
Best wishes,
Dartford Warbler

HELLO CALLIE!! You mentioned 'chicken herd' and it reminded me that I saw a sign at 'Southern States' that said 'chicken crossing.' Maybe you need to get one like that for your driveway!!

I hope you are doing well--For some reason, I've been missing your blog posts--I'll try to pay better attention!!
