Lesson 615 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks 

Found this little lovely at a thrift store last week.

Never lose a chance of saying a kind word.
William Thackeray


President Obama is in town (again, it’s political season in NH) and I’m going with Marc and Fatti Madi (will post any photos.)

It’s raining now but if the weather lets up, I’ll start on the Grand-mucking out, probably on Sunday.

I have to start organizing the older kids’ stuff for college, get rid of the things they didn’t use or used up, go through the clothing and figure out what’s needed and what needs to be replaced, you know – that mom-college-management thing that all moms do at this time of year.

Going to follow up on a wasp nest or two, and

I’m going to make a pie this weekend. Still not quite sure what kind, I’ll know what I’ll be making when I check out what looks good at the farm stand. Berries are a bit past season around here and right now, I’m leaning toward an apple-cranberry pie. Don’t worry, you’ll hear all the gory details next week. 🙂

Busy, busy, but really, would I want it any other way?


See you next week.


As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.

One response to “Lesson 615 – Quotable Chicks

  1. We are just finishing our last raspberries (in our own set of vines). Our pea vines just finished producing so I am pulling them up. I threw the last peas and the last raspberries into the chicken run. The chickens forgot everything they knew about sharing (which isn’t very much) and chased the goodies energetically.

    Which reminds me. One of our chickens has become quite a mouse hunter. She has caught five (that I’ve seen) in the last month. I never imagined a (not so young) hen could run so fast. She gallops away from the other eagerly pursuing hens and rips the rodent to shreds. I told her she was going to lose her PETA card, but she is not listening.
