2. The chickens are doing well. They are getting bigger and starting to get feathers in place of fuzz on their wings. We lost one this morning, a pretty smokey grey chick that I especially liked. We expected to lose a few -- normal natural occurrences with baby chicks. When I put the camera in their brooder to take pictures they race around on their little chick feet so I mostly get shots of blurs. But I did get a good picture of the one chick who has a name (so far). Cleo -- short for Cleopatra because the markings around her eyes looks like dramatic eyeliner. Think Elizabeth Taylor. Kind of.
3. We've been having gorgeous weather. When I get home from work, around 6:00, it is still warm and sunny out. I change into my jeans and help Brett with the chores. Then we settle on the front porch with a glass of wine and the dogs until the evening chill creeps around the corners.
4. We have a very special guest arriving tomorrow. Flash is very excited. Flash! Wake up! Your girlfriend is coming over.
5. I was looking at a horse that is for sale at Sandy's barn today. Someone walked by and said 'Oh, Lucy is so sweet. Not at all like Winston." Ouch.
