Yesterday spring was really in the air. We found the first surprise eggs from our pullets in odd corners – you can imagine the thrill (I don’t have a store bought egg to place side by side for comparison, but they are about 2/3 as large and a 100 times tastier).
I made the nesting boxes all comfy and cozy and placed dummy eggs inside.
I planted peas and sweet peas.
I put the yard in order a bit after the recent winds and rain and being unable to poke my nose out. It was great.
Now today we have more rains, a chilling wind, lots of mud, and I’ve caught whatever bug that has been making its way among the kids. Again.
But that’s OK too, as long as I have the comfort of my warm bed, books, yarn, and hot chocolate.
Stay cozy and warm!

Wishing you a fast recovery…so sorry to hear you are ill again!! You need a break from all the work you did!! Glad the chickens are laying already…indeed homegrown eggs DO taste better!!
Thank you – I think it will be a while before they lay regularly, but it was sure nice to taste a home-grown egg again.
Sorry to have been AWOL. It is so nice to be able to get out and about after a nasty winter. It’s a shame you are sick with the “crud” but you are correct – nothing that a warm bed and something hot to drink can’t cure – or at least alleviate!
