I love waking up to a warm spring morning,
with Vegas doin' his moves on the deck -
slumbering puppies at his feet:
We've had a couple of incidents with one of the neighbor's kids,
who saw fit to throw dime-store firecrackers at the horses -
why would anyone want to torture these poor critters?
Yes, we're on war turf right now -
Meanwhile, we moved the main flock to their summer quarters
which means they're all over the yard now,
scratching for yummy stuff and feasting on tender grass shoots.
It's a beautiful sight!
I just feel really bad for the other two flocks,
who are still in the barn for a couple of weeks.
Their summer coops require bird netting over the outside pens
to keep the birds in and the hawks out.
Last year a snowstorm on April 26th tore all the netting down -
yeah, I'm not being conned a second time into believing
spring is really here yet!
First thundershower of the year happened this morning.
I slept through most of it.
So! Much! Rain! :-o
For reasons unknown, I'm moving more than ever
and not eating any differently than before,
yet I seem to be gaining weight - wth?!
I want to experiment with a low-carb diet for a week
and see if I get that boost of energy
that many people claim -
thoughts on this?
I need to lose weight for summer!
(ps: voted in the poll yet?)
