A Lazy Weekend
This weekend was pretty low key. A little scalloping. The OSFM (Off Season Farmer’s Market) where I found broccoli, potatoes, turnips, and squash. A fire in the fireplace all day, a little sewing with some new sailing fabric (new eyeglass cases soon to be on etsy site) and hung out with the chickens.
Still not an egg to be seen. I actually had to get some from someone else! The daylight savings has me in a bit of a low. I don’t like the sun disappearing so early. It’s so early that the chickens are already in bed when I get home. I love our afternoon time. Ok I’m sounding like a debbie downer. It’ll only be for a little while. Husband gets home early enough to let them out and put them to bed.
I guess we should start raking soon. But, the chickens love the leaves. Last year we just raked the front yard for appearance and left the back to the chickens. We’ll probably do the same this year. They love flickin and kickin the leaves and making a hole and then going and kickin and flickin the same leaves they just piled up and making a new hole. It’s never ending enjoyment for them. It’s like a cat with a cardboard box. Cheap and endless fun.
