Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
Oh March, how we have been waiting for you! Welcome, welcome.
Spring can’t be far behind. Does it tell you how desperate I am to get away from the snow that I’m actually looking forward to the spring chicken coop muck-out? It’s always an annual event of epic proportions (and that offer of free fertilizer still stands for anyone who is interested – bring a container and take what you want.)
On a personal note, Chick #2 goes back to college on Sunday and Chick #1 comes home for his Spring break today. The rest of the chicks all return to school on Monday – that’s me giving a tiny sigh of relief.
We’ve got FIRST (robotics) competition this weekend and another gymnastics meet. Time doesn’t stand still and neither does this family.
I’ll be back next week with a long awaited update on our house bird (who is now a coop bird) Charlie.
See you next week.
As always, happy weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.
